ending

Episode 251: al fine

For the Season 11 Premiere, Karl & Will explore an aspect of VGM that typically goes unlooked on the podcast: endings! An ending is a crucial part of a song, since it is the last thing the listener hears. Although much VGM is loop-based and doesn't feature an ending, the guys dive into a diverse assortment of killer tunes that do!
