For the most part, when you’ve seen ONE Pizza Hut, you’ve pretty much seen EVERY Pizza Hut. Now that comes with a few exceptions, of course, but the architecture of most Pizza Hut locations are so distinctive that you can easily identify any building that is or used to be a Pizza Hut. This is due to the two identifying features that make Pizza Huts stick out: first is the building’s trapezoidal shape, and second is that roof hump that shoots straight above the building’s trapezoidal awnings.

In this episode, host Jamin Warren ponders on whether or not our feelings of anger and disapproval toward video games we don’t like (for either genuine or less-than-so reasons; likely the latter because the internet is a thing) are hurting the industry.
