Al Madrigal (Free Agents, The Daily Show) drops in to take us back to the days when cigarette burns adorned Street Fighter 2 cabinets & the possibility of an actual street fight was all too real. Yep: we talk about video game arcades. How they were scary, how they were awesome, and how barely any of them exist anymore. Al and Kumail also describe some of their favorite stand-up heckling moments.
