We're back with an extra long episode! We discuss the new pet colors and outfits, including the controversial Toy Meerca, and give you an update on the data breach and (unfortunately) the Neopets Metaverse. Plus: we read listener mail (including a compelling argument about which Neopet is the #1 Millennial Pet) and talk about business simulation video games, a tough existential question, and more!

We also have an intriguing business proposition, more user designs for pets, and a Neopets version of an iconic fanfic. Plus, we talk about which Muppet we're most like and rate our enclosures!

    If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

    Bone Valley

    Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.
