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...

We try to keep it pretty positive on this show, but sometimes you just have to wade through the mud, which is exactly what we're doing this week. The gang are reaching low to recall and discuss some of the absolute worst bosses in the Zelda series! Though the bosses that Link faces off against are usually pretty fun, over 35 years there are bound to be some stinkers, so put your boots on and swim through the mud with us!
