Phil Spencer, Microsoft’s head of Xbox, is a featured guest on Gary Whitta’s Animal Talking tonight. 

If you’re unfamiliar with the show, it’s basically a live talk show that takes place virtually inside Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Nintendo’s adorable island-life sim. Past guests of the program include Selena Gomez, Sting, T-Pain, Elijah Wood, Danny Trejo, and Brie Larson.

The Wednesday, August 12, episode will also feature Dylan Sprouse, from the upcoming film After We Collided, and Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb.

Animal Talking goes live on at 7 p.m. Pacific time. After the broadcast, you can find the archived episode — along with past Animal Talking segments — at Whitta’s YouTube channel.

Years ago, Whitta served as editor-in-chief of PC Gamer magazine and wrote screenplays for films like The Book of Eli, After Earth, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. More recently, he’s been trying to make a sequel to the ’80s cult classic The Last Starfighter.
