    Preparing for Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom with Heeral Chhibber

    Preeti is joined by guest and Zelda aficionado Heeral Chhibber to detail all the information it might be good to know before getting into that Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom play on May 12. Heeral takes us through what we should pull from Skyward Sword, Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, Wind Waker, Breath of the Wild and how all the games (sort of) tie together. She also digs deep into Ganondorf lore and what we might see from the King in the new game.

All I want is more hot takes

Great podcast where two geeks talk about their hot takes and it is exactly what I want. They dont talk about things that they dont like, (which I appreciate,) but wish they would mention thats the reason they are not discussing those topics instead of just ignoring it (looking at you Falcon and the Winter Soldier)

Fantastic podcast

This is a great podcast where two friends can offer me a fresh new perspective on the stuff I love. This podcast is the antidote to toxic fandom. Thank you.

Love Their Perspectives

New to the pod! Tuning in for their WandaVision coverage and thoroughly enjoying myself.
