If this is your first episode, Friends List is a daily web series where we have one-on-one talks about a single question related to video games. The goal is to give both Polygon's many team members across the globe and those involved in covering, designing and releasing games, an opportunity to speak with you.

Today on Friends List, Deputy News Editor Mike McWhertor and Senior Editorial Producer Griffin McElroy ask: What the hell is Twitch Plays Pokemon?

The episode will begin at 2 p.m. ET (or thereabouts!) and will be available via YouTube following the recording. While you wait you can watch the previous episode: Are Nintendo's best game designers in Texas?

Enjoy Friends List anywhere, anytime:
