    What makes a font good or bad? Bethany Heck, a design director at Vox Media and typographer, joins today's show to talk about the nuances of font design. First, Kirk and Jason talk Mario + Rabbids before jumping into news like L.A. Noire Switch (19:54), Apple announcements (25:38), and Pewdiepie's racial slurs (36:33). Then Bethany hops on the show (48:16) to talk about the best and worst video game fonts, serifs vs. sans serifs, and what exactly "kerning" means. Kirk and Jason close things out with a brief chat about getting ready to run the Destiny 2 raid blindly (1:08:15).
