Aural Friendship

Don't like sitting in silence with your thoughts? Boom. Mortal Podkast. I was looking for background programming when I found this kast, and in the blink of an eye, I'd gone through seasons.

Lose your mind every week as you listen to Ben sing the intro as you go through your own groundhog's day as he explains character lore that almost usually opens with the beginning of time with The One Being.

Check out this podkast... Finish him.

An interesting deep dive into the lore.

If you’re looking for a sympathetic look at expansionist dictators, then look elsewhere. Ben pulls no punches when discussing the faults of Shao Kahn.

Does every episode have to be political?

Ok I get it. It’s a hot button topic but can I please hear about Mortal Kombat lore without hearing about Trump? Seriously now. We all know what side your on. But please I will stop listening if I hear more politics then actual lore
