Final Fantasy 7

June 3, 2018

I'm Trish and I think you should TRY THIS THING: specifically, Final Fantasy 7.

In the first of a series, I try to retell the plot of Final Fantasy 7 (my first FF).  In the process, I accidentally fall back in love with the game and leave the episode ready to return to FF fandom.  Join me by sharing your favorite memories of FF7 on Twitter @TryThisThingPod or email me trythisthingpod@gmail.com.
