Favorite podcast, genuine and informative

So many other podcasts sound like they’re just reading game new. Here, the hosts are very much speaking their mind and giving original feedback and comments. Love you guys, thanks for this show! Don’t change anything, awesome show exactly the way it’s done now!

My Favorite Gaming Podcast

I enjoy listening to Bree & Justin chat MMOs. There is a certain place in my heart for MMOs and with all the toxicity in the political environment today, Bree & Justin are a nice, calming breath of fresh air on this subject I love. We have lots in common from my love/hate relationship for LotRO due to the shenanigans I’ve had to endure if I wanted to continue playing, to the nostalgia I feel when Bree talks about UO and SWG.

Keep up the great work and hit me up anytime on LotRO.
