Podcast highlight of my week

Great show!!

First Podcast Review Ever

So I had in my head that every podcast would only get 5 star rating because really, if you don’t like what you hear, just stop listening.
Then Casey started hosting this show and now I understand why you would rate a podcast less than 5 stars. It’s really sad, I loved this show so much. Pear, Brian and Zach are great. So is Tom or any other guest but I just can’t stand Casey! She talks about stuff no one cares about, doesn’t add interesting conversation, and has a super annoying way of talking.

She seems like a nice person, but god, I am so sick of hearing her voice. This is the only time I’ve ever felt like writing a review, and the whole time I’ve been writing this she hasn’t shut up about Pokémon even though all the other panelists are audibly bored and don’t care.

Please less Casey

Whoops, I didn’t mean to subscribe to the Fire Emblem podcast

Oh wait, no it definitely says Nintendo Voice Chat. I guess if you like Fire Emblem, this is your podcast as that’s more or less all you’re going to hear about.
