On April 5th, 2019, the hosts of VGM podcast Pixelated Audio participated in an event at the Library of Congress in Washington DC celebrating video game music. The event became a nexus for several podcasts, as the hosts of Rhythm & Pixels, Sound Test Roulette, and The VGMbassy all attended to support their peers at the talk! Now, you can’t get all of these hosts together without recording a super special episode, right? On this episode, join Bryan and Gene from Pixelated Audio, Emily from Sound Test Roulette, and Ed (with special guest Logan) from The VGMbassy as they chat about their journeys in DC and share music with an American theme. Please also check out the Pixelated Audio feed for another show recorded during the same weekend, with even more awesome guests!
A huge thank you to Indira J (The Misadventures of Buddy and Friend, Sacrimony) for the amazing VGMbassy artwork and design, and to Trevin Hughes (aka chiptune composer Jredd) for the podcast theme song!
