We have a really good show for you this time. Dale North is on the program and he and Colette geek out considerably over the Persona series. There is a pretty huge spoiler in there, which is clearly labeled in the show notes. So you've been warned. Possibly multiple times.
There's some discussion about other Shin Megami Tensei games as well and, since there's all this other Atlus stuff going on, a touch of Trauma Team. The whole thing is pure magic.
As usual, you can download the show by clicking below. Follow along after the break to see this episode's complete notes.
