Great Podcast, even if you're not a Monk!

Love hearing the thoughts and opinions of the show hosts. Very well structured yet relaxed enough to go off the rails and have fun tangents. Monk players should get a good idea of the current state of the show topics but are very relevant for players of all classes and spec roles. Anom's lore dumps are always a great off the rails experience!

Glad I found this show.

I’m glad to have found this show. Monk is my favorite class but as a returning player, there are a lot of whole in my game.
I look forward to listening as we move into Shadowlands.

Thank you for this!

Thank you for everything you do for the monk community. By far the #1 resource for monk help and insightful information.
