Minimap is your daily audio tour through the world of video games, related technologies and pop culture like comics, movies and TV. On Fridays, it transforms into Polygon Minimap: Worldmap Edition. These special episodes include on-staff experts who not only talk about current events, but analyze and synthesize them.

Think of Worldmap as the director's commentary for Polygon.

Today, we're joined by Owen Good, who tells us about the recently departed Super Bowl of Tecmo Super Bowl, Megan Farokhmanesh, who tells us about her nearly accidental feature on Blizzard's sound department and Allegra Frank, who takes us on a brief tour through Pokémon's history.
