Yes.

I like this podcast and I wanna boost it in the algorithm bye reviewing since I can’t donate through patreon. This is my favorite way to learn smash because they are cool and nice and it’s not hardcore stuff it’s just chill and you still get to learn the game. I listen to this whilst trying to sleep and playing grindy games. 10/10 pogchamp

Funny And Informative

The BTM Podcast has become one of my favorite podcasts to listen to! It’s always funny, but in addition to that it is informative, and is pretty much a smasher’s essential podcast to keep up to date with the current meta. 5/5 stars F R E E
