Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another Monday and another episode of The Downpour Podcast!

We’re hoping many of you tuned in to our live broadcast of the show this past Thursday. What you’re about to hear is the edited down, much more streamlined version of that very show! Feedback has been positive, so Jonathan, Jared and Randy will be getting together on the oprainfall Youtube Channel once again at 8:30 PM EST this evening (July 1st) to record Episode 24!

This week! Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, ATLUS, and indie games are a big focus during the start of the show. After that, the crew gets into what they’ve been playing. There’s actually a bunch of talk about fighting games, the bizarre nature of Tails Adventure, and even a game we would never talk about here on oprainfall!

And this week in anime: Jonathan watched Spirited Away. That’s all there is to it.

…Okay, not really. The month of July is a special one for The Downpour Podcast. Each week in July, the crew will be focusing on a “big subject” across gaming and anime. This week: find out how Jonathan, Jared and Randy feel about video game and anime music. And next week, stay tuned to hear about narrative.

Plenty of stuff to talk about—so much so that the show ran a little long this week!

As usual, we always appreciate your feedback. Please let us know how you feel in the comments below, or by sending an email to

Download the show here until we get our technical issues worked out (hopefully they’ll be fixed by next week, and iTunes will be up to date as well).
