Clash of kings version 2.0 ,

Relaxing. I love it

I really enjoy listening while I am at work, everything from the topic of the conversations to the background noises just relaxes me and instead of feeling like my brain is going to waste at work I can learn from your episodes so thank you. If I miss anything during an episode I go back and re-listen I like it that much I’m freakin hooked man, great show.
