Famicom Dojo Podcast: Growing Up Gamer
When we started the Famicom Dojo Podcast three years ago, it was in part because we missed the 4cr Podcast, but also because we wanted to try to bring something new to video game podcasts in general. Sometimes we draw from Vinnk’s “Rebel in Japan” segments, either re-running them or expanding on them. And while it’s (usually) just the two of us, we like discussing contemporary news instead of just keeping it retro.
We decided a while ago to make episodes that were multiples of 25 our listener appreciation episodes. This week we’re bringing back our “This Famicom Life” format, but sharing actual stories of listeners like you and friends of the show. We even talked to 4cr veteran Octorok to get permission to use his song “Pyramids of Sand” that you probably haven’t heard since the 4cr Podcast days.
There’s a lot of love in this episode. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did making.
