Grab your zippers, chains, and Mickey Mouse hats! We are here to celebrate the release of Kingdom Hearts 3 with a super-special episode of Kingdom Hearts music! Superstar musician and Kingdom Hearts expert Key Jay is here to help us make sense of the story and timeline. If you listen closely, you can hear the point where are brains break!
Key Jay, Jamaal Ephriam, is a Miami based producer and artist with huge influences from classic Sega games and of course, Kingdom Hearts! Check out his epic Project Kingdom XIII for some serious JAMS!
It’s time for another live-streamed episode! All music this week has been picked by our lovely Patreon subscribers, thank you! Pizza is a big topic around the R&P office cooler, but our conversation goes all over the place. There’s some excellent “clean-rapping”, talk about comfort-games, and we play a quick game of Patreon subscriber survival horror!
If you would like to get involved with these episodes, and get access to the live-stream, head over to our Patreon page!
Also a BIG shout-out to Jamaal from Kee Jay music for his excellent Kingdom Hearts music! Go check out the rest of his work here!
It’s raining outside! That means we need to stay inside all day and play video games! Darn! Rob and Pernell share their favorite rainy-day themed music! Rain used in games as back-drops to set the mood and create a unique atmosphere, so the music is composed accordingly. Pernell shares his thoughts on his panels at Anime Central, and they both discuss the effects of time travel.

Rob and Pernell leave the safety and protection of their studio so they can present awesome video game music to a crowd of unsuspecting cosplayers! This week is a live a recording from the weekend-long anime/video games/cosplay festival known as Thy Geekdom Con! Pernell brings the crowd-pleasers, but Rob just wants to fight with good-old battle music!

We celebrate by revisiting our favorite topics from each “podcast world”, and choosing new tracks! Why did we do this funky episode numbering in the first place? Don’t worry about it!
