    Poke Press Digest Podcast: Episode 38-Jordan Moore/Pokemon Puzzle League

    Poke Press Digest Podcast: Episode 38-Jordan Moore/Pokemon Puzzle League

    In the first segment (1:19-15:27), I interview YouTube musician Jordan Moore. We talk about his channel, his recent graduation from college, and his covers of Pokemon music. If you want to know what it takes to put together a video with many instruments all performed by the same person, this is one you shouldn’t miss.

    Our second segment (16:33-1:05:51) is a discussion of the music of Pokemon Puzzle League for the N64. Anne from Pikapi Podcast assists me in analyzing the tunes-most of them from the anime dub-that appear in this game. As usual, we run into a few surprises along the way. If you want to know what we thought of the game itself, be sure to listen after the outro.

    Poke Press Digest Podcast: Episode 34-Discussing the Music of Pokemon TCG for Game Boy

    Poke Press Digest Podcast: Episode 34-Discussing the Music of Pokemon TCG for Game Boy

    In this episode, Anne from Pikapi Podcast drops in to talk about the music of Pokemon Trading Card Game for Game Boy. Released years before the online version, this oddity mimics some of the structure of the regular games, but the tunes are original. Between the area themes, battle music, and a song for a real-world character, it produced a very interesting discussion. As usual, listen after the outro to find out what we thought of the game itself.

    Poke Press Digest Podcast: Episode 33-Discussing the music of Pokemon Stadium

    In this episode, Anne from Pikapi Podcast joins me to talk about the music of Pokémon Stadium for the N64. While most of the songs are pulled from the original gen one Game Boy games, it still manages to do a number of interesting things with them. We also discuss the announcer, and explain what's up with the shouting guy in the sushi minigame. To find out what we thought of the game itself, be sure to listen after the outro.
