Most entertaining hour and a half ever

I tuned into the League of Legends podcast because I am very interested in the game and have beenplaying the game since season 3. Although there were other topics talked about prior to it starting, I was still enthused by what was covered because you guys had awesome conversations that were very eloquently put and the analogies were spot on. I'mvery particular when it comes to wording so that last bit especially appealed to me. Everything seemed well fleshed out as if rehearsed and the shaking the board analogy was my favorite and very accurate too. 10/10

Clever fun friends, good thoughts

Loved your Eternal Darkness ep - a personal favorite game, and your takes on it were really thoughtful. Looking forward to the next season!
