WoW Lore Nerds!

The three of them really know their lore. Okay actually 2 of them know the lore and one is just really annoying. But annoying in an endearing and funny way. I always learn something and have a good laugh!

My Favorite WoW Podcast

This podcast is great if you enjoy WoW podcasts. The hosts really know their stuff and are entertaining too. Well, Shoeboots and Jared are entertaining. That Sharku guy is the most annoying podcast host I've ever heard.
