Channel 2 [“Nerd Noise Game Club”]: C2E10 - “Sega CD 30”

Today’s Broadcast is C2E10 for Theme Thursday, October 20th, 2022. Today’s episode (our final “normal” episode of Season 2 [calendar 2022]) will be a focus on Sega CD music to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the system’s North American launch. Also, including an endearingly terrible improvised gag attempt at the very beginning! :-D
