It’s not a rerun; it’s a special edition. This is redo of the fourth episode I ever did on this podcast. I thought that original was good. but being relatively ignorant about podcast-making back in the day, there are a few things, content-wise and production-wise, that I always wanted to change about the original version. Now I’ve done it: For your enjoyment and entertainment, a better-sounding and deeper-diving episode about the use of pop music in EarthBound, all tied together with a personal story about the persistence of memory. Weird!
