Download Episode 54: The Music of Final Fantasy” Here!

The Final Fantasy series is celebrated not only for it’s engaging characters, powerful storylines, and impressive graphics, but it’s wonderful music as well. Composers like Kenji Ito and Ryuji Sasai have lent their talents to the games, along with the incomparable Nobuo Uematsu.  Join Paladin Mike, Dark Mage Ed, and Quest Party Member Todd as they embark upon a musical journey through some of their favorite Final Fantasy titles!

(We apologize for the incidental echo-like effect on Ed’s voice that pops up a few times during the show. Both microphones were picking him up at the same time.  We didn’t feel it was bad enough that we had to cancel the episode, though.)
