First time listener

Just found this pod cast. I listen to prepared and war craft reloaded and was pleasantly surprised and pleased to find another resource. This most recent episode (the interview with the content creator) is the first episode I’ve listened to and I gotta say- this is easily the best wow classic related thing I’ve ever heard. So much was covered and I was incredibly impressed with the transparency. So many questions answered and so many issues addressed. Well done sir. Excellent job and outstanding interview. You gained a loyal subscriber

Excellent

This guy is such a great podcaster! The humor, the guests, the way he leads the conversations are all top notch and keep me coming back for more! Keep up the good work and thanks Josh!

DougeTheRouge ,

Super fun podcast with a caveat !

Great information. Guests are very knowledgeable and respectful of one and others differing opinions. That being said North is seeming more and more like a bully from my prospective. Interrupting and condescending to guests that don’t agree with him. Aside from that all in all great time for classic WoW!
