Games & Hobbies

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has captured the world's heart due to its cutesy animal neighbors, soothing island vibes, and unbridled capitalism? Hidden beyond Nook's Craney there's a black market emerging on the internet that involves the trafficking of certain characters, and bringing out the worst greed in some players. Joshua Rivera takes a visit to Jordan Erica Webber's island to see what the fuss is about the hit Nintendo Switch game. And we hear from Zach Reino about his crazy pursuit of virtual riches in the Stalk Market and of course his famed turnip jail. And we talk to Eric Peckham who dives into this virtual utopia to try and find out why it has been corrupted by our real-world faults.Wild Wild Tech is going bi-weekly so stay tuned on 8/26 for a brand-new episode!Follow Wild Wild TechInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/wildwildtechpod/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/wildwildtechpod/  Learn more about your ad choices.
