  1. Hey Michael! I loved your descriptions of the Phoenix Wright music. You do know that they have a jazz album as well, right? Great episode, guys!

  2. Hey Sam, glad you liked them! Yep, I know about the jazz album! I was also talking about the Phoenix 5 soundtrack on the most recent episode. Some of my faves there are the Simon Blackquill theme and the Bobby Fulbright theme. Yours?
