If you were making a Sonic movie, you know you need a couple of key components. It obviously needs to have humans in it — preferably a cop, and that character needs to partner up with Sonic to take on Eggman.

On this week’s episode of the GamesBeat Decides podcast, we forgot to talk about this. But co-hosts Mike Minotti and Jeffrey Grubb did a bonus call because they just had to talk about it. You can hear that call in the video above or hear it at the end of the audio version below.
