    96 - The 4th and 5th Spheres of Expansion

    96 - The 4th and 5th Spheres of Expansion

    As the galaxy slowly gets smaller for the Tau, their need for haste to spread the Greater Good only intensifies. With the time between the Spheres shrinking between every Expansion, they are now more than ever driven by a need to have others support their philosophy; to aid them in it’s spread. Desiring to push beyond their Empire’s confines during the 4th Sphere, they invited disaster upon themselves, only compounded by their need to lie and spread propaganda. And in their ignorance of the galaxy they live in, their 5th Sphere has only been met by more soul crushing conflict.
    Join us, and Rio, as we dive into the Tau’s 4th and 5th Spheres.

    95 - Squats

    95 - Squats

    “Concerning Squats. We are rather peculiar creatures, content more with our own affairs of mining and trading agreements than the state of the Imperium and the galaxy as a whole. We are stalwart drinking companions, true warriors, and you’ll never find a better or stronger friend than a Squat. While our current predicament is a shame, with the right encouragement and direction, we may yet see a resurgence of the Squat race in our galaxy.” - Ancestor Lord Bilboa, 245.M36
    This episode is all about Squats! Join us, along with Paul and Chris (for the last time), as we navigate this race of abhumans.

    Bonus Episode 26 - Necromunity: Making a Hive

    Bonus Episode 26 - Necromunity: Making a Hive

    Previously released on the Let's Talk Lorehammer podcast, this episode was a meeting of brilliant minds including Mark, Erik, Matt and Bob. Our discord server has undertaken a massive project this past year in its attempt to recreate our version of the Necromunda world and book, which we dubbed the Necrommunity. In this episode we work together to build a hive city from the ground up, thinking and imagining every possible facet of a hive city.
    The audio was recorded remotely, and therefore is not the usual quality of Lorehammer. We thank you for your understanding!
    If you would like to be involved with the Necrommunity, please join our discord server! We look forward to seeing your contributions.

So far so good

I started listening to this podcast a few weeks ago starting from the very first episode. I’ve been listening everyday during the work week. So far I’m on episode 45 and I’m pretty entertained. I’m a welder so I use bluetooth ear protection and usually listen to audio books for about 8 hours a day, but I have been hooked. As soon as I catch up to the most recent episodes I will drop another review. Great job.

Good stuff

So I have had very little exposure to Warhammer40k before listening to this podcast but I found myself really enjoying the lore itself and the banter between these heretics. Jordon’s input in invaluable. I just got to the hive mind episode and the group’s optimistic outlook for 2020 was hilarious…in hindsight.

Unfortunate and Problematic

The lore is one of the greatest aspects of Warhammer 40k, and these guys seem to know it well. Unfortunately, while I understand the podcast comes with an explicit rating, their telling and discussions of this lore is often overshadowed by mildly to blatantly homophobic, racist, and misogynistic tangents and “jokes” that express beliefs I personally find problematic. I’m not trying to take the moral high ground or make sweeping judgements on them as people, I’m just saying that I struggle to engage with the fictional lore the podcast is trying to communicate when it is overshadowed by comments with harmful real world implications. Again, I find that their telling of the lore—which they clearly have a passion for—being overshadowed by such views as unfortunate as it is problematic, and for these reasons I will have to look elsewhere for Warhammer 40k lore-related content.
