    THE RETURN OF ANALOG - Live from Summit 13 ft. Zain, Toph, iBDW, Fendy, and more!

    Your eyes (or ears) don't deceive you - after more than two years, the analog boys are back with a super-sized episode live from Smash Summit 13! This episode's got everything you remember and more: super-star guests, musings on what it means just to play Melee, rambling discussions of Mafia and other non-Melee games, camera issues, and a general disregard for time constraints. It's just like old times.

    ep. 39: New Year, Same Old analog

    As 2019 draws to a close, Rishi and Zane explore just how they're feeling about the last year of Melee - including Hungrybox's shaky hold on the number one ranking, Mango's rise to the top, and even whether we care about the ranking anymore after all. When the years go by this fast, what do we care about in Melee?

    I dunno, but maybe listen to the podcast to find out.

    ep. 36: The Month that Changed Melee

    We've witnessed history - twice over. Axe's win at Smash Summit and Wizzrobe's Smash'n'Splash have changed Melee forever. What we once knew has become void. No one knows what the rankings should look like. And it's the most exciting Melee has looked in years.

A podcast for everyone (mostly)

If you love competitive melee, then you’ll love this podcast. If you don’t, well, you should! If you really don’t know what what that is then you probably clicked on the wrong analog podcast.
