Only One Problem

There's only one thing wrong with this podcast - it doesn't come out often enough! Both of the hosts are very, very busy with several other projects, though, so it's a treat whenever they can come together with some new demoscene goodness to share!

Norms sutton ,

So good

Man, I love this podcast. Both hosts bring to the table a wealth of experience, and it shows. If you have ever wondered how far computer and game composers could push chip audio, this show will show you.

awesome music

This music takes me back to the 90s when I first learned of trackers, and it's great to hear how it has evolved over all these years into great works of art. Great show guys!
