Bandersnatch – TPToA Podcast 102


Bandersnatch is a bleak, bold new story-delivery from Netflix and the mind of Charlie Brooker. Part television event, part game, part misanthropic dystopian choose-your-own-adventure, Bandersnatch responds to the question: “What if I could control the story’s protagonist’s choices?”. Join Dion, Bec (Ardella), and Peta-Producer as they try to figure out if there’s a “good” ending worth fighting for, or whether you’re wasting your time by trying again.
