It’s a crossover podcast! It’s trivia night! It’s a game show! It’s an encyclopedia! Today’s episode of The VGMbassy is all that and more as Ben, host of “The Diad Presents: A VGM Podcast” joins Ed for a show chock-full of crazy facts. Riffing off of Ben’s own podcast, the hosts challenge each other to research little-known topics vaguely related to each other’s VGM picks. The results are hilarious, informative, and very entertaining. Stay tuned to the end as Ed gets put through the ringer in Ben’s pop-up game show based on VERY obscure trivia!
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!
