Rhythm Encounter 40 – Back to School

A new school year is upon us, and it brings with it countless hours of reading, classwork, and exams. But never fear! Rhythm Encounter is here with a collection of music perfect for the new scholastic year. Whether it’s soothing music to listen to while studying, or tunes that remind us of our days in the classroom, Caitlin, Mike, and guest hosts Marcos and Peter bring a little something of everything to this RPGFan cram session.

Note: We had to re-number our episodes several years after publishing. This was originally Episode 29, as reflected in the audio. Don’t worry, you’re not missing anything!
