Simply the best

I absolutely love this podcast and these hosts. Their chemistry is pitch-perfect and they analyze each game so thoughtfully. Joe brings a lot of historical knowledge of the franchise, and Shannon brings incredibly fresh insights. Plus, they both have great radio voices; I could listen to them read a recipe book :) By far my favorite Zelda podcast--actually, just my favorite.

Welcome back!

I’m so sorry about everything you’ve been dealing with this year Joe. God bless, that you’re recovering. You guys are easily my favorite Zelda podcast. I found you guys a couple years ago and I’ve loved listening to every episode. By the time I was fully caught up it was just in time for you to stop releasing episodes and was super bummed. I’m so excited to hear you guys again and can’t wait to listen to all your new episodes and even go back and replay the series with you two. God bless and good luck with everything you guys do!

They’re back, and just as awesome as before!

I’m so sorry about the heath issues Joe, glad you guys were able to take a break and SO glad you’ve recovered and had that dealt with! Here’s to staying healthy and safe 🍺

Your return really shows just how good you guys have gotten at podcasting, it felt very natural and was a great episode! It’s fun hearing about Four Swords Adventures because it’s probably one of the few games I’ll never be able to play, and I know almost nothing about it.
I’m really glad you guys came back, nothing beats Tandem Legends!
