MOTHER, She Wrote: An EarthBound Podcast

24-07-2023 • 1 hr 4 mins

Ninten and Lloyd want to ride the rails, but there's something standing in their way that's too big for two kids to tackle... nothing that a military-grade rocket can't fix! With the trains running again, their world opens up exponentially! They dip into lands too dangerous to travel... yet... and hop the Paradise Line to Reindeer, a town ravaged by a pandemic and wealth disparity. Perhaps there are problems even our well-equipped protagonists can't solve. Never fear, dear listener - "relax for a while and watch the world go by. Just as long as we're together we'll be fine - Takin' the Paradise Line!” “MOTHER,” She Wrote mixes audio drama and talk podcast to chronicle the strangest, most thought-provoking, most heart-rending video games ever made: the MOTHER series, as it's called in Japan, and EarthBound as it's called everywhere else. This first season chronicles MOTHER (1989), known as EarthBound Beginnings in English-speaking countries. For links and transcriptions, head to Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
