Retronauts Episode 597: Bowser, Part 2

It's good to be the King (of the Koopas)

We've done our share of special podcasts dedicated to Mario's pals Toad and Princess Peach in recent years, but what about his long-standing adversary Bowser a.k.a. King Koopa? In his almost 40 years of existence, the big bully has gone from a simple fire-breathing sprite to a legit character in his own right, complete with a family of varying size.

We sat down to record a podcast last year about Nintendo's famed spiked antagonist but that conversation (a Patreon exclusive) only covered his first 20 years or so. Now, in part 2, you can hear Bob Mackey, Henry Gilbert, and Drew Mackie continue that discussion by examining Bowser's 21st-century video games.

Description: Back in December, we thrilled you with the first 20 years of Bowser's history. And, given that he's nearly at the "lordy, lordy" stage of his life, we still have a few more decades to discuss. On this episode of Retronauts, join Bob Mackey, Henry Gilbert, and Drew Mackie (of Gayest Episode Ever) as the crew discusses that large lizard's adventures in the 21st century.
