    Welcome to The Starting Zone Podcast, The World of Warcraft Podcast for New and Experienced Players!

    Spencer Downey and Jason Lucas sit down to talk with our Patrons about what's on their minds for the May 2020 Patron Q&A!

    Episode #391: May Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!
    When does Ahead of the Curve end? How do you feel about Spotify buying Joe Rogan's exclusive rights? What are your thoughts on the balance of the covenant abilities? Like is Spencer gonna have 4 druids in different covenants in case one is stupid OP? I just returned to the game and I was reflecting on how the NPC vendors etc. add to the story telling in the game. What are some of your favorites on each side and why? The Vulpera give you a feel if they are survivalist and encourage the player to be careful. The Dwarves often have a hearty “Great to meet you!” and “See you soon!” With all the great new customizations coming to shadowlands, are there any specifics you hope will come next? Either xmog or your characters themselves

One of if not the best WOW podcast

Started to listen to TSZ after hearing the hosts on Darkmoon Herald, have not missed an episode yet.
This podcast has become my main source of news and information each week. If you listen to only one podcast a week for your news make sure it is TSZ.

Canadianbacn-Thrall ,

Great podcast to listen to at work!

I always look forward to listening to The Starting Zone at work on Wednesday’s. because I raid on Tuesday nights I rarely get to check out what’s new each week, and by listening the next day, I feel armed to tackle anything the week throws at me. Best WoW podcast imo.

getupkid55 ,

Excellent informative WoW podcast

I like Spencer's voice and Jason's brain. I wonder if either of them are single?
