Mona Storm ,

Phenomenal!

Brilliantly done. Hosts love these games and this world so much. Best Mass Effect podcast out there.

Woke Effect

I love this podcast and the game, but it a little too woke.

MatterofM ,

Nothing quite like it!

Wow. This is different in the best of ways. One of my favorite franchises of all time and we get to get all nitty gritty with it? Sign me up! Handful of episodes into Season 1 and loving it. Also nice to hear a woman’s perspective on what this game presents, it’s a small touch, but a good one. Also they both bounce off one another really well...not to mention this can get very deep in the emotions department and they do well with talking it through. Worth a listen!
