We’ve done it! Three years of podcasts, video game music, and friendship! Let’s reflect back on our favorite tracks and episodes of the last year, you may be surprised at what we pick! There’s celebratory beverages, behind-the-scenes podcast stories, and fun trivia quizzes which Pernell is way too good at.
This episode was recorded in a live stream, which you can watch here unedited! (ALL HAIL THE METRONOME)
Likes podcasts. Puts video game music in every episode. In this week’s podcast we pick a song that matches a video game meme, so get ready for LOTS of memes! This topic was brought to us from Good Guy Messenger!

Let’s listen to music for fish! We’re talking about classic fishing video games, and even some mini-games about fishing within other games. SO MANY FISH. No matter what angle we come at it, we find super-chill, jazzy, and always positive music. Special shout-out to listener Wicked Sephiroth for the track suggestions which spawned this whopper of an episode! (pun intended)
We need to leave a special note to our friends Josh and Emily over at the podcast The VGM Jukebox. Last week they released their final episode, and it was lovely in a bitter-sweet kind of way. Rob and Pernell salute you, and will continue to be fans in your future projects.

Jump around, jump around, jump around-yeah! This week we listen to classic hip-hop, and classic hip-hop inspired, video game music! It gets funky, it gets heavy, and then it gets cheesey… oh boy it gets cheesey in places 🙂
We are joined by the talented producer and video game composer, 2 Mello! (2064 Read Only Memories, Celeste) He wanted to jump on our show and talk about the cross-over of video games into hip-hop, and sometimes vice-versa. We talk about the use of samples, old hardware, and our favorite Jet Set Radio characters.
