Ep 50 - It's Dangerous to Go Alone (Part 1): A Survey Course on the Legend of Zelda Franchise
Oct 03, 2022 Episode 50

One day in the early 80's, Shigeru Miyamoto looked back and thought about his days roaming the Kyoto countryside as a youth. The result of his daydream was The Legend of Zelda, a landmark franchise full of action, adventure, and exploration. To kick off a multi-month exploration of this world class series, we take a look at Zelda as a comprehensive work before diving into the individual eras. Why its endured, what the games do well (and not so well) and the personal stories that define our fandom.
