Makes commutes much more entertaining
My commutes in Tokyo can get boring, but the heroes always help out.
Decent but not great
Decent podcast with good game preview and review. Banter between the cast can be tiring at times and a few too many in jokes not understood unless you’ve listened for years.
Can be excellent, can be cringeworthy. Hanzus thinks he’s a comedian, Sessler thinks it’s hilarious to pick on Rosenthal, and can only spout pure negatives unless he has written one of his verbose yawnathons the night before, Wesseling can turn anything into a hit on the Bengals, and Gregg is decent.
