And what the heck might happen next? This episode includes FULL SPOILERS for Final Fantasy VII Remake, and at about the hour mark (with a warning), the hosts will also talk about the events of the original Final Fantasy VII.

Finally! There's a podcast that I actually enjoy listening to! For some reason it's tough for me to stay focused and interested in listening to podcasts. This podcast is amazing! I'll have to listen to your older podcast as well! Keep it up!
