Episode 9-9 Montage Music with Cameron from The Mad Gear

8/21/2017
More
You're training hard, but there isn't enough time to show everyone? That's when you need a montage! We're talking tough-hard-hitting music for boxers to work out to. But we're also talking about fun, harmonica-filled jams for the end of a 90s sitcom. Like Family Matters. What if that actually was Carl Winslow helping out Bruce Willis in Die Hard?

This week the super podcast brothers are joined by members from the VGM cover band Rare Candy to talk about all things Final Fantasy! We listen to tracks from nearly every console the series made an appearance.

It was great fun to record, we hope you enjoy it!
