A new guest appears and casts Haste, his VGM is super effective! This week we talk to Ian Stocker AKA MagicalTimeBean (Escape Goat, Soulcaster, Monster Tale) and chat about game music in the theme of magical time! Ian gets into his love trackers, and what he loves about sweet bass in game music. We also talk about adaptive/modular music, franchise games, and we come up with the Perfect Strangers RPG for your SNES! COUSIN LARRY WAKE UP!
