 Episode 3-2, Part 1: Let the Battles Begin! (RPG Battle Themes) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4414

Greetings, Gamers! This time around, we ended up splitting our playlist into two episodes, because this topic – RPG Battle Themes – is just too big to narrow down to 14 tracks! This week, Shootkapow and I each bring you 5 tracks (out of a total of 10 we each picked) from tactical, turn-based, or adventure-style role playing games. There are some classics here, as well as some more obscure picks, but as always, everything is Very Good Music! Bear with us – I actually decided partway through this episode to split the tracks up instead of going for one full-sized, 20-song extravaganza. We hope you enjoy the format and the rare opportunity for some back-to-back episodes! Thanks as always to our amazing patrons and the artists who made our show art and theme song.

Greetings, Gamers, and welcome to Level 3! To kick our third season (and 2nd year, wow!), we've selected tunes from the 3rd level/area/stage of some of our favorite games, along with a few others we've never played! As usual when it's not a spotlight episode, we're featuring a wide range of publishers, platforms, and eras in gaming, but as always, everything follows our number one rule: It's all Very Good Music! While a couple of tracks from some of our MVPs are notably absent (no Flowers of Antimony from Shovel Knight or Threed from Earthbound???), Shootkapow and I are very proud of this list we've put together.

 Episode 2-11: Platformers with ProfJeff! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 8081

Greetings, Gamers, and Happy New Year! This week, the hosts are joined by Apparently-Regular-Episode-Eleven-Cohost ProfJeff! The trio has an absolute blast discussing some of what might be considered lower-tier platformers. Or at least 2D side-scrollers. We play it a little fast and loose. But just like always, you can rest assured in the fact that everything we’re playing is Very Good Music! Note - we usually try to keep this show G-rated. This one gets solidly PG in a few places - notably in our discussions about Donk and Tembo and after our Spelunky discussion. For anyone who is sensitive to mild cursing or innuendo, discretion is advised. Thanks as always to our amazing patrons and the artists who made our show art and theme song. Links to their content can be found below the playlist on our YouTube video! You, too, can become a patron at patreon.com/vgmvgm, and you can reach out to us by e-mail at verygoodmusicvgm@gmail.com, on Twitter @Shootkpow, or by leaving us a voice message at anchor.com/vgmvgm. You can also leave us a comment on YouTube and while you're at it, please let us know if you like the video, and subscribe and ring the bell to be notified of future episodes!

 Very Good Music Bonus Episode 4: Interview with Artist Naomi Rubin | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5452

In this very special bonus episode, the hosts are joined by the artist who designed their awesome cover art: Naomi Rubin! We had a blast digging into Naomi’s process for coming up with the VGMVGM design, and in talking about some of her influences. Of course, there’s still plenty of Very Good Music, as the trio listens to three songs, each representing one of the stars of the art itself: Sans, Zelda, and Proto Man! No playlist this week. Naomi is the star of this show, and we want to keep the music a bit of a surprise. More than ever, we would love for you to check out the accompanying video on YouTube, where you can get an exclusive look at some of Naomi’s in-process artwork! Finally…we have a Discord now! Come join us and talk about the music here: https://discord.com/invite/qpbXPdCf2N That’s all for now. We’ll see you in one week for Episode 2-11: Platformers with ProfJeff!

Here it is, gamers...our 10 best favorite most memorable(?) tracks from the podcast in 2020. Yeah, the only real rhyme or reason to this is that these are the tracks we picked when we HAD to pick 10 tracks for our end-of-year special. Take from that what you will! Either way, we had a blast. We even get to open up with a few picks from our wonderful patrons! Thanks for a great year, and let's all hope that 2021 holds many great things for us all!

 Episode 2-8: In the Land of Ice and Snow | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5700

It's beginning to look a lot like...well, winter! And you know what that means in VGM Podcast Land: a special, winter-themed episode! We wanted to start this tradition off with a bang, so Bedroth cooked up something wildly involved and time-consuming to bring you some wintry VGM you're unlikely to have heard before on other VGM winter specials. In fact, the hosts worked so hard to find you some bangin' good tracks to welcome in the season, there were too many to fit into one episode! You'll learn more about that as you listen to this, our first of TWO winter-themed shows. This episode, which we're calling "In the Land of Ice and Snow" features themes that fit the darker, more emotional side of the season. If it gets a little heavy for you, tune in in ONE WEEK to hear the 2nd show, which will be a lot more festive. Thanks as always to our amazing patrons and the artists who made our show art and theme song. Links to their content can be found below the playlist on our YouTube video! You, too, can become a patron at patreon.com/vgmvgm, and you can reach out to us by e-mail at verygoodmusicvgm@gmail.com, on Twitter @Shootkpow, or by leaving us a voice message at anchor.com/vgmvgm.
