Easily the strongest esports cast out there right now. The guys really know the business and the ecosystem. They give great insight and know when to crack a joke. If you’re looking to bone up on esports, def check out this show.
The hosts of this podcast are really good speakers, and keep things interesting. The intro is nice, short, and really easy to get into.
The topics are great, even if you're not into e-sports they're easy to understand and enjoy. The hosts are level headed and have a really good dynamic going, you can tell they enjoy what they do and it's really fun to listen to. I would say this is a good podcast for anyone interested in learning about e-sports or just want to get caught up in the gaming world. Really good stuff here.
What I’ve been looking for
I’ve been searching for a good esports podcast and this hits every item on the list. Good length, good discussion, wide range of titles and tournaments and news discussed.
As someone pursuing an esports career while currently working a non esports job that requires a lot of driving, it’s great for helping me keep my finger on the pulse and making the drives more bearable.
I’d love more CSGO talk, and I totally agree re: the harsh punishments toward forsaken and the swatter.
