About The Show

A wide-eyed optimist tries to convince a couple of skeptics to get on board with their distinctive, sometimes downright unusual obsession. But really, it’s just an excuse for silliness, games, and surprise guests. Hosted by Ben Cassil, Thayer Frechette, and Geoff Kaufman.

Put on your harness and keep your hands inside the vehicle, ’cause this week Travis Rust (@etravisrust) joins us to talk about Roller Coaster Tycoon! The ep gets to a slow start, but once we get past an extended conversation about water shoes we really do get into it. Travis outlines all of the quirks of the original 1999 installment. For example, did you know that every NPC in that game is a single 30 year old man? (Fun fact, that’s also Convince Me’s primary demo!) Along the way, Travis and Thayer share stories about growing up without TV/videogames and how that makes them better than the rest of us. We also get a visit from an actual Roller Coaster Tycoon character, who gets stuck in an A.I. loop and nearly explodes…. his bowels. Look at us, getting into some Sci-Fi! Or is it SyFy now?

It’s linked above, but just in case you missed it you can check out Travis on Twitter at twitter.com/etravisrust.

Also, not to sound like a broken record, but please do rate and review us on iTunes (we might read your review on the air…), follow on Twitter (@ConvinceMePod), or email us with questions/suggestions at convincemepodcast@gmail.com!
