Good show

Everyone Sideshow, Bren, Mr X, Reinforce, Custa, Avast, Kurt all do such a great job throughout this podcasts episodes and I have begun watching more recently but I will say if you a overwatch league fan best place to be is here 🌙✨

Always Entertaining

My favorite podcast. I just wish that there were more episodes!

😄😾👼) ,

Just your average chat

Let me start with that this podcast won’t be for everyone. If you have no interest in the Overwatch League, then this podcast is not the one for you.

The current Plat Chat podcast will go in about this order. First is the intro of the show, this begins with the host and co-host having casual conversation that will lead into a story to talk about their sponsor, T-Mobile. The show then goes into discussion lasting an unspecified amount of time about the topic at hand until it moves on to its next one. The common topics during these discussions can be reviews of the matches from the previous week, Player trades and signings, team or player controversy, insider information about the league behind the scenes, and predictions for next weeks games. This is then always wrapped up with Bren’s player of the week segment.

This podcast is not immune from the good and the bad though, so let’s talk about that. In terms of what good, its entertaining, has good analysis, is a good information source, and the host/co-host have good chemistry. Unfortunately, these aspects are paired with host talking over each other, having a lack of some structure, getting off topic, and some audio and mic issues. While in the end for me these are minor issues that don’t sway me from listening, I can not say that it will the same for everyone. Fixing these issues would most definitely increase the quality of the podcast.

Also, me and other views of the podcast would most definitely like see the podcast to cover the lower-level league of contenders. Overall, Plat Chat is an entertaining and informative podcast that suffers from some minor issues and I would definably recommend that you give it a listen :)
