The Polygon Show: The Squeakquel

Did you know Jason Lee receives top billing in Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, despite only appearing in a full-body cast for most of the film?

These horrifying revelations were brought on The Polygon Show by Allegra this week, who mysteriously watched all four live-action Alvin and the Chipmunks movies. Or, rather, the YouTube compilations of their best moments. Chelsea and Allegra also fondly reminisced about Rocko’s Modern Life, inspired by Allegra’s viewing of Static Cling, now on Netflix.

This week, we were also joined by junior entertainment reporter Petrana Radulovic and Polygon intern Palmer Haasch. Petrana gave an impassioned plea for the criminally hated Blue Lions from Fire Emblem: Three Houses, a game we can’t stop talking about. Then she and Palmer gave us the rundown of Ouran HIgh School Host Club, an early 2000s twist on harem anime that still holds up.

The Polygon Show is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and everywhere else podcasts are found. If you like what you hear, let us know! We also very much appreciate the rating and reviewing us on Apple Podcasts — seriously, every little bit helps!

This week’s episode is hosted by Chelsea Stark and Allegra Frank, with guests Petrana Radulovic and Palmer Haasch. It is produced by Jelani Carter and Ross Miller.
