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 ga...

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 po...

I had so many tracks left over from the last episode that I decided to put them all together and make a Castlevania leftovers bonus episode. Enjoy all these cool songs that didn’t quite fit on the last episode for some reason or another!

[NOTE: This is a re-upload of an older episode that I accidentally deleted. While it's not my best show, and definitely not my most popular episode ever, I'm reposting it for the sake of complete-ness.]

This episode is devoted to some ominous songs. The episode title does not include a question mark, and that is intentional.

It’s a whole bunch of laid-back VGM to help you relax and focus. Don’t worry if you haven’t listened to the first three episodes in the Chilly McFreeze series; you’ll still be able to follow the plot here. Because there is no plot; it’s all relaxing, calm VGM.
