It’s spooky season, so I’m doing a whole episode full of Castlevania’s greatest hits! And come back soon for a bonus episode containing a whole bunch of deep cuts I didn’t have time for on this episode!
Special thanks for this episode goes out to:
Fellow VGM podcaster Jameson of barSILENCE podcast for contributing amazing cover art. You can and should find barSILENCE wherever you download podcasts, and check out his website at barSILENCE.com.
Save Point Sam for voicing Lamenty the gravestone
Generous show patron Rick L., who suggested the idea for this episode and also gave me a huge amount of money to do it. Well, he suggested the idea. He didn’t actually give me any money at all, but I’m still doing it because I’m all about the fans.

During the show, I mentioned my April Fool’s 2023 episode. You can find that at https://www.podbean.com/ew/pb-duvyd-13ce7bd, although I warn you that 1) you are listening at your own risk and also 2) it’s an April Fool’s Day show, so things may be a little different than normal and also also 3) it features me singing at the end, so you’re REALLY listening at your own risk.
