    Look inside yourself to find this episode of YTS, glowing with blue spirit energy, ready to grow into a forest of wild knowledge. Neither Ferngully nor Innerspace have anything on this allegedly-cute cartoon, and… honestly, none of our prior work has prepared us for what we saw in this one. Also, we’re pretty sure Kirby farted.Music Credits:- Our theme song is a cover of "Hydrocity Zone" from Sonic 3, by Dave Donkin and Goodknight Productions: https://www.youtube.com/user/GoodknightProd- “Kirby Kirby Kirby!” theme by Norman J.

    This is a big one, y’all! Your Two Hosts go full-on National Treasure to find hidden words, double agents, and the secret themes hidden within Mount Rushmore’s iconic Kirby sculpture. Metaknight is maybe Nic Cage? Caleb is the map. We debut a NEW SEGMENT and get real about Sonic and Kirby’s origins and game design styles, and the effect these have had on their public perception. And we explore Kirby’s approach to anxiety! Breathe deep and buckle up!Some other good media things we mentioned: Supergirl: Being Super by Mariko Tamaki, Wandersong, and Celeste.Two good  Metal Gear pieces: “Driving off the Map” by James Clinton Howell: http://www.deltaheadtranslation.com/MGS2/DOTM_TOC.htm “Metal Gear: The Kotaku Retrospective” and other pieces by Heather Alexandra: http://www.kotaku.co.uk/2018/09/05/metal-gear-the-kotaku-retrospective.“Kingdom Hearts III Is An Unreviewable Video Game” by Tim Rogers for Kotaku: https://kotaku.com/kingdom-hearts-iii-is-an-unreviewable-video-game-1831985374

Oh, and do us a favor: please don’t order the snails.

    Welcome to the REAL Season Two! Your two hosts watch episode 1 of Kirby: Right Back At Ya! We learn about Kirby’s Superman origin story, confront a big octopus — no, bigger than that — and think WAY too hard about Kirby’s lips and interior. And, of course, we wind up talking about Sonic.

I have been a huge sonic fan ever since I can remember, and even though I know a lot about the franchise already I love the new perspectives and fun times that Caleb and Nick bring to the table. Every episode never fails to bring a smile to my face and make me think of Sonic in a wider spectrum. Now when I watch any of the Sonic media, I feel like I can not only dive deeper into the lore, but I can understand it better. Not to mention that these guys are hilarious. They are clean and genuinely funny, something that other sonic podcasts lack, especially when they get gross about the fandom. Keep up the good work guys, and I hope to see new episodes soon!
