For the Classic WoW lover.

Funny, informative, entertaining and enjoyable. If you are from the days of old, or want to hear about them, then listen to this.
Things have changed since episode 1. But it’s fresh, relevant and have you wanting more. Listen in and be a part of the community!!!

Bored and Cynical ,

Simply the best. Better than all the rest!

Forget the rest, Countdown to Classic is hands down the best Classic WoW podcast in production. Produced by an Aussie lawyer with a background in journalism the show is jam packed full of amazing well researched and presented content. There is no awkward silences or dead air here as is often the case with competitors/streamers running sans script.

Passionate, dedicated and downright amazing, Countdown to Classic is bingeworthy WoW content that is sure to satisfy what it is you are looking for. You can also become part of the show by joining the show’s Discord and even call in to voice your opinion on all things Classic.
