About This Show
Abnormal Mapping is the video game nightmare of Matthew Marko and Jackson Tyler, two people who play too many games and don’t spend nearly enough time talking about them. This is a monthly podcast, which includes a game club component and tries to be both critical and entertaining, but mostly just manages to find itself in the digital weeds again and again. It’s a wonderland of navel gazing. It is the walking simulator of video game podcasts.
