Sega Mania Podcast

Ep. 11: Fudge Pants Forrester

July 8, 2022

The Sega Mania crew is back once again with more fantastic tales of filling our pants with bum gravy and getting stuck in a nun's back passage. What else would you expect? 

It's also new issue time, so we once again talk up the merits of the brilliant magazine we risked our relationships and sanity to put together. If it's insight into what went on behind the scenes of the UK's first retro Sega mag you want, then you're in for a treat!

Then, of course, we get back to the rankings in better spirits (mostly) than we were last time, as the games covered this episode were far less heinous than in Episode 10. Quaking in their boots at our impending judgement are Wonder Boy in Monster World, Zero Wing, Home Alone, Desert Strike, LHX Attack Chopper and Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe. 

We finish off the pod with another reader question, this time about our favourite animated movies. And yes, we're still able to keep that Sega-related too. Don't forget to email your questions to or become an ultimate friend of the show by subbing to our Patreon at
