Happy 20th anniversary, Chrono Trigger!
Hello, fellow time travelling nerds! ‘Tis us: the Not So Silent Protagonists, back to bring you more navel-gazing about Squaresoft’s 1995 JRPG institution, Chrono Trigger.
In this installment, Dubs, Marshall and Ryan take you from the war to inherit the Earth at the Tyrano Lair in 65,000,000 B.C. to the magical and mysterious Kingdom of Zeal in a brand new time period, 12,000 B.C.
Along the way, we discuss the etiquette of prehistorical conscientious objectors, apocryphal tie-ins to Earth’s history, aloof felines, how special our auras are, Master Zhuangzi and what he has to do with bowling balls and sashimi (Ed: during the podcast, Dubs attributes Zhuangzi’s quote to Carl Jung. He was wrong.), and how many times Ryan can pee during one podcast.
Also, we answer our very first mailbag question from our good friend, BK.
Also, the Protagonists get waaaaay too drunk.
Another note: Yoshinori Kitase and Yasunori Mitsuda? Both very talented; not the same guy.
Ascend with us to the Kingdom of Zeal, dear listeners, for you are the Enlightened Ones.
Please rate, review and subscribe to us on iTunes. And as always, please leave us a comment. If you do, there’s a pretty good chance we’ll mention it on the next cast!
