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.

- We get an exclusive 30 second celebrity interview!
- Placing a Mailbox: a complicated decision
- Johnny licks his foot
- Jim and Matt's Legend of Mana Punishment
- Diddle's Nightmarish Form
- Why the Square Roots House smells like smoked meats
