Great podcast

I just started listening to this podcast and really like it. If you make for episodes I think you should do one on mass destruction from persona

A Wonderful Podcast for any Smash or Video Game Music Fan

Very informative, entertaining and a joy to listen to every episode. I’ve been playing Smash Bros. since the N64, and took band class in high school, so even though I don’t know every musical topic in each episode, you explain it in a way where it’s easy to follow, and you playing the instrument as an example helps as well. Keep up the great work!
