The Legacy Music Hour: Leading Women

Female protagonist video games is the topic of Episode 142.  That is, games in which a female character is the main character and does not share the primary spotlight with any male characters.  Also, Rob returns and shares some unfortunate news.  Hopefully this episode isn’t too sad and that you find the music and the jokes good and funny enough to balance everything out.  NOTE: The Legacy Music Hour would like to deeply apologize for a moment during the episode when Rob reveals a clip from the new DuckTales: Remastered game.  Due to the crass nature of this reveal, Rob initially wanted that portion of the recording edited out, however, later, he felt that the humor surrounding the reveal was strong enough to leave the portion in, so that part was ultimately left intact.  Was it worth it to leave it in?  Could be.
