In episode four of the Not a Game podcast we're joined by proud United Statesian Taylor Cocke, who becomes our first ever transatlantic guest. He and Pip have both just visted The International, the most prestigious of Dota 2 tournaments. They bring with them stories of dramatic last minute wins, failed fountain hooks and the strange spectacle of a Valve run economy. Meanwhile Tom talks about the terror of recording himself playing Spelunky and Pip explains why Gone Home needs more Teletext. This episode is brought to you by Saltybet, which we spent the entire podcast watching.
