#04 - That's A Dead Kid

 welcome back, universe!   on this episode i talk with David Stockdale of the Youtube channel Nightmare Masterclass about the disturbing fake videogame let's play/video art project/internet sensation Petscop. what is it? what distinguishes it from other creepypasta internet horror videos? is it a commentary on the commodification of children as marketing demographic and childhood nostalgia? (yes, it is). anyway, you can listen to me talk about this to David, who has made several lengthy and in-depth videos on the Petscop series on his youtube channel Nightmare Masterclass   hope you enjoy it! sorry it's taken forever to get up an episode - was busy with other stuff at the end of last year, and it takes a long time to edit these episodes! lol. i'll probably continue this trend of uploading episodes more gradually. you can watch the Petscop series here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZKQv0ZFHpeIUkOtNjtq4KA   and follow the creator Tony on twitter here: https://twitter.com/pressedyes   David's Nightmare Masterclass videos on Petscop can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Crvn5-LOUFA&list=PL66V-u4b7Z8BkYl59qLV5-6N3FkxTG0Pw   and you can follow David on twitter here: https://twitter.com/davisstockwell   here's an old youtube playthrough of Tony's game "Nifty": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKdQ0ZBS_f0&feature=emb_title   samples taken from the video intro of the Nightmare Masterclass series on Petscop, and various videos in the Petscop series, including the tracks "school", "explore", "explore-min" and others from the Petscop soundtrack: https://petscop.bandcamp.com   the intro song, as always, is "Museum of Agony" from the game Stretch Panic by Norio Hanzawa
