A wild podcast appears! The Rhythm and Pixels team is blasting off at the speed of music, because this week we’re talking about all things Pokemon. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Pokemon, we’re covering music from all of the handheld console “eras”. Helping us celebrate is special guest Mike Ward, musician and Pokemon addict.
So flip that hat backwards, get your Bulbasaurs and Charmanders ready, it’s time for great video game music!
