    290 - Corrupted Blood, The World Of Warcraft Pandemic

    In 2005, World Of Warcraft was rocked by an unforeseen virtual pandemic. An infectious illness meant players started dropping like flies, and chaos reigned. Cited as an example of how the world might react to a real pandemic, how does it compare to the world we find ourselves living in?

Five stars

Please learn from my mistake and do not listen to this podcast while applying eyeliner, or else you may end up with a black stripe on your face from laughing too hard. That aside, this is a hilariously informative podcast that makes so many different topics interesting.

YES YES YES

The best Australian podcast that I’ve listened to! Listen to these local comedians to open your brain and laugh at people, places and events around the world. Dave, Matt and Jess are such a great team and have such genuine banter which makes Do Go On so easy to listen to. Covering a wide range of topics, you can just listen to what you’re interested in but I have now gone back to the beginning and listen to everyone single one because you don’t have to know anything about the topic to understand it! Most of the time the two hosts who aren’t doing the report don’t know the topic either! You can tell how much they research and delve into the topic for the report and it’s so great to listen to it. Definitely definitely have a listen and you’ll become addicted. I have turned so many of my mates onto it and they are now obsessed!

Love this podcast

For anyone looking for anything this is for you. I adore this podcast and it keeps me company when I’m cooking, cleaning, exercising and just living. The banter is always funny and I always come away having learnt something! After discovering them last year I listened to every episode In about six months (would have been faster if I didn’t need to go to “school”). My favourite podcast I can’t wait till it comes out each week. ✅✅✅✅✅
