Episode 39 - Four Short Episodes of Shujin Academy VGM Club

11/30/2023
I come up with a lot of ideas, but all of them aren’t a good fit for a full-length episode, so this episode is actually four mini-episodes. Each one is devoted to an idea that works better in small bites than it would in a longer episode. Enjoy! Congratulations in advance go out to fellow VGM podcast bro Martyrus for reaching 100 episodes of his excellent show RE-VGM, a great podcast where he explores the world of arranged video game music.

Episode 38 - The Not-So-Contractually-Obligated After-Halloween Mixtape

11/2/2023
Halloween has come and gone, but spooky season lives on in our hearts all year round, so this is a great set of creepy tracks that I didn’t quite get out the door before Halloween. (But I meant to, and then life got in the way.) We here in the VGM podcast community have seen Spotify pull down some of our episodes recently without any explanation as to why. My Castlevania bonus episode was removed, as were episodes of fellow VGM podcasts A VGM Journey and Nerd Noise Radio. None of us know exactly why we were targeted in general or why it was those specific episodes, and no one (not even a robot) at Spotify has reached out to tell us. So, if you’re listening to this on a podcast service that’s NOT Spotify, good job and thank you and keep on doing what you’re doing. And if you’re listening to this podcast on Spotify, you may need to find an alternative podcatcher to keep listening to us. I personally use Podbean and Pocket Casts both; I know Spotify is convenient, but I think both of those are better podcast apps, since they’re custom-built for podcast consumption. Podbean is currently the best place to find me, since that’s my hosting company, but any dedicated podcatcher you use should pick me up.
