Everything To Guppy

A near-daily podcast about the items and lore in the Binding Of Isaac.

About the show

William Hughes (The A.V. Club) and Gary Butterfield (Watch Out for Fireballs!) get together four times a week to talk through every single item, trinket, boss, monster, and, really, everything in Edmund McMillen's "The Binding Of Isaac". New, bite-sized episodes come out every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Episodes

  • Episode 522: Censer

    August 11th, 2020  |  17 mins 21 secs

    But the ugly fact was, Stargash did need the work; payments were coming due on his new Luxury Lung, and he'd already seen the telltale signs of a Loan Crab lingering on his psychic periphery.

  • Episode 521: Dark Room

    August 9th, 2020  |  18 mins 30 secs

    That was the irritating thing about Chil'trox; he could wield ambiguity like a scalpel, never ordering you to "murder 4 million cosmo-babies" when an "investigate and correct The Situation" would suffice.

  • Episode 520: The D12

    August 8th, 2020  |  21 mins 32 secs

    "A planet on the Outer Rim is in danger of a Level-6 reality incursion," the bureaucrat moistly intoned, "And I need you to make sure it stays quiet."

  • Episode 519: Bumbo

    August 6th, 2020  |  15 mins 11 secs

    Ignoring the mercenary's quiet dismay, Chil'trox continued, lips smacking as saliva dripped down his chin and deep into his crannies.

  • Episode 518: Lil Gurdy

    August 4th, 2020  |  16 mins 46 secs

    To say nothing of the blood on his glands after shutting down the Un-Phanage of No Parents 7—KIDZ PLANET KEEP OUT.

  • Episode 517: The Forsaken

    August 2nd, 2020  |  13 mins 47 secs

    He still had nightmares about the psychic screams that had emanated from the Widow Planet of Chaz-itron 6 after the Husband Resurrection Bomb he'd planted on its surface went off.

  • Episode 516: Tear Detonator

    August 1st, 2020  |  13 mins 53 secs

    But the jobs the bureaucrat typically tried to pawn off on him were capable of making even the most hardened Cosmo-Mercenary's stomach flip.

  • Episode 515: Friendly Ball

    July 30th, 2020  |  14 mins 46 secs

    As a registered member of the Gyg Collective, he was obligated to do whatever a client requested, no matter how depraved, miserable, or smelly.

  • Episode 514: Eden's Blessing

    July 28th, 2020  |  15 mins 4 secs

    Stargash attempted to estimate whether he could make it to the nearest escape colon before Chil'trox triggered him into a retaliatory hyper-coma.

  • Episode 513: Flat Penny

    July 26th, 2020  |  20 mins 45 secs

    "Don't bother," the hallucinatory Chil'trox snarled, "I have a proposal that will allow you to more than make up what you hyper-owe."

  • Episode 512: Pay To Play

    July 25th, 2020  |  12 mins 11 secs

    "Chil'trox, baby!" he shouted with synthetic cheerfulness, "If this is about those megacreds I still owe you from the Altrazian gig, believe me, the hyper-check is in the space mail!"

  • Episode 511: Pupula Duplex

    July 23rd, 2020  |  17 mins 5 secs

    Attempting to appear as non-chalant as a man can while the scenery is spitting on him, Stargash adopted his standard "talking to bureaucrats" face—a sort of scowling simper, with topnotes of reverence and pique.

  • Episode 510: No. 2

    July 21st, 2020  |  18 mins 27 secs

    "Stargash!" the avatar of unpleasantness belched, a hallucination of warm, wet spittle flying freely from its techno-organic mouth.

  • Episode 509: The Chest

    July 19th, 2020  |  23 mins 42 secs

    Hallucination antrons, meanwhile had the benefit of being completely silent, at the deficit of forcing their recipient—Stargash, in this case—to experience the nightmarish sight of perfectly good mechano-worm components re-shaping themselves into the scowling visage of his least favorite bureaucrat.

  • Episode 508: Bursting Sack

    July 18th, 2020  |  14 mins 47 secs

    Invasive, yes, but it also enforced a certain politeness; Stargash had had to spend the better part of a week being serviced in the MacroDoc after a particularly malignant comment about his table manners had managed to lodge itself in his lower intestine.

  • Episode 507: Restock

    July 16th, 2020  |  14 mins 5 secs

    There were less pleasant ways to communicate messages across the interstellar distance—Stargash had once breakfasted with a tribe that spoke exclusively through inducing appropriately shaped tumor growths in the skin of their conversational partners.
