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)
Rob goes head-first into the fishing game deep end and finds that there is so much more to listen to! Enjoy this short mix-tape of excellent fishing music to cast your week and catch a great day! Oh, and enjoy the stylings of MC Sega Bass Fishing!

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.
We salute you.
