This Podcast is a Bad Idea: Summarizing Kingdom Hearts

The task of summarizing the plot of Kingdom Hearts, the inexplicable 20 year crossover between Disney animated films and Square Enix’s Final Fantasy, has often been deemed an insurmountable one. Murph believes he can do it, while also maintaining that the series is not that complicated. Can he prove it by coherently explaining the plots of all 13 core entries to Froo? Or is he just seasoning his foot before he puts it into his mouth?
