It’s been 2 years since the first episode of Podigious! In celebration of our 2-year anniversary, we dove deep into a critical comparative analysis of the DigiRap and Pokérap! Instead of listening to the songs, listen to us dissect the cultural ramifications of these great pieces of art for an hour, line by line.

(Our anniversary was actually yesterday, but Jeff couldn’t get the episode out in time. Sorry!)
