Square Roots - THE Classic RPG Podcast

Square Roots is like a book club, but for classic RPGs! Each episode John, Matthew, Jim and Vanessa play through another chunk of one of your favorite RPGs, from Final Fantasy through Chrono Trigger. Are they experts? No. Are they qualified? Absolutely not. Are they good at RPGs? Probably not. But they're the fun kind of dumb, and that's what counts.

THE Classic RPG Podcast, w/Jim Banks, John Brandon, Matthew Van Zandt & Vanessa

Aug 27, 2018

We collect all the missing party members! Good news! No one died! Unless you left Shadow out to die, you monster. Wait, he left his friend to do so maybe you're the real monster if you save him? Morality is weird, friends. We talk about catfishing, the secrets of silk production, teen pregnancy, Locke gets his dead girlfriend back, Strago joins a cult, and we don't even know what was going on with Owzer and Relm.

This Week: We gather the gang together in the World of Ruin!
Next Week: We finish the game!


Our intro music for this series is The OneUps' cover of Terra's theme!

Our outro is LordBifMusic's jazz cover of Shadow's theme!

We're all flipping water bottles, dabbing, and diving out of moving cars in this exciting, hip, current episode of Square Roots. Is John compensating because he's now 39? Is Matthew known for being angry? Is Vanessa fed up with ladies giving up because they learned about motherhood? Is Jim just cranky? YOU BET. Also there's tons of Star Trek talk, the sad death of Bananaman, the dark, moody World of Ruin, discussing the name Darill, the ethics of looting a crumbling house, ten minutes of Star Trek talk, and so much more.

Musical references this week: Living on the Edge by Aerosmith, Never Been to Me by Charlene, Mouth by Bush, Love Shack by B52s.

MATTHEW'S LAPTOP EXPLODED. So our regularly scheduled episode won't be up for a couple of days. So in the mean time, here is the first episode of Sierra Roots.

We discuss the best and worst of Sierra, Vanessa premieres her phantasmagoria true crime podcast documentary, and ReVenture Games's Natalie Juhasz discusses how Laura Bow's beloved stupidity helped inspire Lorna Bains.

Final Fantasy VI will be there REAL SOON! I swear!
