I’ve been listening to a handful of Podcasts of various genres and this is the only one that I have listened to back to back beginning to end. I wanted to learn more about Dota but without having to fell like I’m sitting through a science class. From what I’ve heard so far it’s been a great listen. Fun informing, professional, just an outright solid gaming podcast. WE WANT MORE! WE WANT MORE! WE WANT MORE!
