Happy ZDMX week everyone! This week, our pal Alasyn is away for the 10th annual Zelda Dungeon Marathon, so we're cracking open a previously-Twitch-exclusive episode pitting Andy and Al against Zelda Universe's Alex Trevino and Amanda van Hiel! There might be a few audio hiccups on here, but we figured it was better than skipping a week of the show, so come on and play with us! There are some epic doozeys in here, o come and...

It's finally here! The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is one of both Andy and Alasyn's favorite Zelda games ever, so there was a lot to look forward to in the new HD remaster. Hear our thoughts as we go in depth covering both control schemes, what works and what doesn't, what we think of the updated visuals and performance, what's missing from HD that would level it up even more, and what QOL changes really stick ou...

We are back with another weeks worth of Daily Debates to, well, debate! We picked the minds of Zelda Dungeon's Writing Team, getting some of the best and most engaging questions to give our hot takes on! We cover a bunch of different issues, such as: what we think of the Switch OLED, our favorite tunes in Skyward Sword, the idea that we might not be playing as Link in Breath of the Wild 2, interactive memories, voice acting, Ze...

We're still on cloud nine after finally seeing the latest Breath of the Wild 2 trailer, so this week, the gang tackle your fan questions and theories! We're covering a whole array of topics, including our take on the popular fan theory about the Zonai Tribe and their potential influence on the game. Plus, might we be playing both in the present and 10,000 years in the past? Will Age of Calamity's ending have any impact ...

We're still coming down from the high of last week's Nintendo Direct, where we finally got to see new footage from the sequel to Breath of the Wild, so this week, we tried to put our thinking caps on and really break down what we saw. Come listen to our theories on Link's arm, how Runes might work, the relationship between the Sky and the Ground, what's up with Link's Champions Tunic, who that creepy corpse guy ...

E3 finally happened and it did not disappoint! We got a brand new look at the still-untitled sequel to Breath of the Wild, the first footage we've seen in over two years! Come hear our thoughts on the trailer, what we noticed about Link's hand, speculation over the new ruins, our thoughts on Hyrules sky and much more!

We're so close we can TASTE it. Eight days away from E3 and the potential revealing of Breath of the Wild 2, Age of Calamity DLC, and Skyward Sword HD details in what seems like it could be a very Zelda heavy presentation has over the moon. Of course, the best way to know where you're going is to know where you've been, so this week, Andy and Al take a look at some of the high points and low spots Zelda has found itself...

It seems like forever since the last time we got to say this, but it's E3 Predictions time! Of course, the million dollar question for Zelda fans and Nintendo fans everywhere is after two long years will we finally see Breath of the Wild 2?! The gang disagree on that, but that's not all we're putting money on the table for. Will there be new Zelda amiibo? What's going on with the Age of Calamity DLC, Pulse of the An...

A fan favorite makes its triumphant return this week as the gang play a game of "Guess That Zelda Character in 16 Questions" on this week show!

With E3 just around the corner, and Andy ready to bet his house, his dog, and his shirt on the fact that we'll be seeing a new Breath of the Wild 2 trailer there, we felt like what better time to talk about some of the most impactful and memorable trailer in the Zelda series! We offer commentary, insight, context, memories, and reactions as we reminisce about 11 of the greatest trailers ever, including of course, that Breath of...

Another week in the bags as we get closer and closer to E3 and (hopefully) Zelda's return. To help pass the time, we are talking about a different Zelda this week... or actually, a bunch of them! Andy and Alasyn are discussing all of the different appearances of Princess Zelda over the years and which ones they liked and disliked. Everything from the character design to the story to the character arcs and everything else are on...

Welcome back to another DEFINITIVE RANKING. This time around, we're talking the bosses (and mini-bosses!) of Andy's favorite game, Ocarina of Time! With no fewer than 16 (woo!) creatures to rank, the gang has some pretty dastardly conversation about which bosses rule, and which bosses are a little average. Is steak more important than sizzle in a boss fight? And can Andy and Al compromise to determine the greatest fight in ...

Imagine if certain things had turned out differently in the history of Zelda, if just a couple changes had been made in the "real world timeline", how different the Zelda series might look today? It's kind of a mindbend, thinking about how history might look completely different, so this week, the gang goes full bore into the thought experiments to speculate and hypothesize what would have happened if certain things had...

Another week, another Legend of Zelda game specific Q&A! This week, we asked our community on Discord and Facebook to ask us anything they wanted to about one of the most overlooked games in the franchise: A Link Between Worlds!

Cody Davies of Zelda Universe joins the gang this week to tackle topics like our thoughts on the rental system, was the map too similar to A Link to the Past, who was our favorite Sage, what did we thi...

This week for the show, we do what we always do when there's nothing particularly pressing to talk about: steal the great ideas of our Zelda Dungeon writing team and answer some of their Daily Debates! Tune in and hear our two cents on topics like: is Breath of the Wild 2 losing anticipation? Which Zelda game offers the most replay value? Should the series introduce post game content? Would we name a kid after a Zelda character...

Musical March Madness may be over, but that doesn't mean we're done with Zelda music! This week, we play a game of Guess That Zelda Song, where the one and only webmaster of Zelda Dungeon Mases Hagopian joins the fray to be the master of ceremonies in a "who can name that tune quicker" battle of wits between Andy and Alasyn! How bad is everyone's memory? What obvious Zelda track did we flub up? How many YouTube ...

What's better than a good ol' fashioned ranking episode? Not much, so we're reaching into our bag of tricks to pull out ten dungeons that we feel are underrated! Of course, the term underrated is pretty subjective, so there's bound to be some ones that ruffle some feathers, but come listen as we rap about our picks. Listen to which games the dungeons come from, why nobody talks about them, and have fun making your o...

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
