Awesome Video Game Music Podcast!
This is a great podcast. Excellent weekly themed playlists of beautiful video game music interspersed with insightful and incisive analysis from two composer brothers. Entertaining and compelling.
The best video game music podcast
I've been on the hunt for a really good show about video game music, mostly old but sometimes new for a long time now. Every podcast I tried was rather amateurish, with dodgy mics, hosts who knew little about the composers, sound chips, or even music theory itself.
Then I found this show, and it's a world away from the others. This is a quality effort, with knowledgable, likeable hosts, and an excellent playlist.
