Midnight MonPod: Episode 33 - What If Monsters Had Theme Songs?
#34
Yesterday at 4:24 PM

Welcome to Midnight MonPod!

Tonight we have a less-than-serious episode, wherein Garrett is joined by returning guest kahos_angel (Dave) to assign Theme Songs to all of the monsters in the game. We had a lot of fun putting the episode together, and hope you enjoy it!

Language is a tad coarser than usual, so consider yourselves forewarned!

Kahos put together a Spotify Playlist with at least one song for each monster represented, you can find that here.
