Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to another Monday and another episode of The Downpour Podcast!

This week’s show doesn’t feature a deluge of news or an extra hour of streamlined discussion, but there’s still plenty to look forward to! Hosts Jonathan, Jared and Randy offer their take on the stories from this past week-or-so including Mighty No. 9, Bravely Default: For the Sequel, Theatrhythm: Curtain Call, the latest Pokemon Direct, and so much more.

As far as what they’ve been playing—it’s most definitely a mixed bag this week. Jared has a bit to say about Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, and Jonathan offers quite a bit on Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and how much Summer Carnival ’92: RECCA is destroying him. And regarding Randy’s journey through Tales of Xillia—apparently stuff went down!

The anime section this week, on top of discussing a few bits of news and new developments in certain shows, features an in depth discussion on Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club, as per a listener request. And speaking of listener requests: Episode 34 of The Downpour Podcast will be a Roundtable on The Legend of Zelda franchise, one of our most requested shows.

Enjoy the show 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
