We have tons of special guests including Zelda Dungeon's Mases and Gooey, former co-hosts Savannah and Taylor, and even my fiancee joins the action to give some perspective on what it's like having to put up with me podcasting every week!

Welcome welcome to another fine episode of the best, most fun Zelda podcast around! This week, the gang tackle a whole plethora of Daily Debate questions at a rapid fire pace - why don't we think Link's Awakening Switch is as great as DX? What character would we put into a different Zelda game? Do we want to see a sequel to Twilight Princess? Does technology take away from the fantasy elements of the series? Are we worried about yearly releases in the franchise? What's the most common thing we mispronounce in the Zelda universe?
