While waiting to record a segment with another guest who was late, we contacted THE STANELY PARABLE developer William Pugh and asked him for an on-the-spot interview which he kindly obliged us with! So we called him up in merry old England then and there!

Leading up to that Dutch Mogul and Jagger chat about Infamous:Second Son and its use of real places in their local Seattle! 

A non-standard episode, but very fun.
