dragonquest.fm
Let’s talk about Dragon Quest. The 33-year-old JRPG series has its hooks in us, and we’re okay with that. Austin is playing through the whole series and blogging about it, and Beej is discovering and adoring the series right on his heels. From metal slime hunting to beautiful art books to trying to fiddle with a Japanese Nintendo 3DS, we are having an amazing adventure with the series, and we want to share that with you. Like all Geek to Geek shows, we keep a clean rating. DQ is about fun for us, and if you can play DQ with your kiddos, you can listen to our Dragon Quest Podcast with them too Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dragonquest/support
