#1 Final Fantasy Podcast

Final Fantasy Union has become something of a podcasting phenomenon since it started way back in 2007. Our little Final Fantasy podcast has been downloadeed well over 1.5 million times and it continues to grow from strength to strength all the time. We are constantly humbled by fans of the show and that our listenerbase has remained so high even after all these years.

Headed up by Darryl and Lauren, we provide new podcasts every two weeks. Each show will take a look at the latest news and and discussion topics that arise. We will also look to have featured discussions and questions from the community!
