Entertaining

Just started playing Hearthstone about a month ago and discovered this podcast a couple of weeks ago. I listen at work and it’s been keeping me entertained while getting through the work week. Keep up the good work!

Revising—after seeing the video where one of the hosts throws up the OK symbol and starts joking that he doesn’t understand it (as it’s now widely known to mean white power and it’s clear he understands that), and the other host starts laughing, I was saddened to see this kind jest. I love hearthstone and will have to get my content elsewhere now.
