History of Fun

Each week, a new exploration of the hidden backstories behind the things you love to do. Whatever happened to the thimble in Monopoly? Where do all the terrifying Chuck E Cheese robots come from? What’s the story behind the helpful cloud turtle in Super Mario Kart? Join Polygon's Russ Frushtick, Allegra Frank and Chris Plante on a hilarious weekly journey through a variety of time-wasting activities. Listen to History of Fun on Apple podcasts and check out our other podcasts while you're at it, including The Besties, The Polygon Show, and Quality Control.
