My favourite Street Fighter podcast series

Designed for new players, but something interesting for everyone!
Lots of Street Fighter articles sound condescending as they're mostly made by experts talking downwards. The Contender neatly sidesteps this by being presented by a beginner to the competitive scene who can pickup and explain the mechanics succinctly, with assistance from his experienced sparring partner.
The enthusiasm and story of his progression as he learns is captivating in its own right; the series motivated me to get back into SF, so cheers!

Fascinating insight into the Competitive Street Fighter Community

Despite my not being interested in playing Street Fighter V, Quinns and Ian manage to make the quest to get Quinns into the top 10% of players online a fascinating and compelling story. A rather special offshoot from Cool Ghosts
