This week we’re talking about The Legend of Zelda! Twice, because of a chipmunk voice technical mishap with the first recording! It’s like our own personal version of Majora’s Mask. We talk all about our histories with the Zelda series and look toward the future of the franchise. Plus DARK REVELATIONS are laid bare for you, our dear listeners!
Huge thanks go out to Rob Boffard, who waded into the hyperspeed fray to help Kristin edit the episode!
