I originally did more with the Sonic the Hedgehog the cartoon. I decided that I might do a show just on that, but now I regret that choice. I should have added more even if I planned on doing another show.
Music is waaaaaay too long. It is just so good. I will need to go back in and re-edit this episode someday.
I still have a soft spot for Sonic games and I find myself buying them on Steam, even thought I do not play them much.
Thanks for listening to the show and I hope you have a great weekend.
