I’ve been a fan of BioWare content since 2008 or so but recently have become more into their full library. Ended up finding Caitie first on YouTube as I devoured all things Dragon Age. That led me to Codex Added, which led me to Jordan’s YouTube and here. Gotta say, I just love all the content! You guys do a fantastic job and have really helped keep me entertained during lockdowns and work.
I’m so glad to have found a BioWare podcast, it’s hard to find other people to nerd about these franchises with. I had fun listening but my enjoyment of the podcast was... challenged 😬 once it got to the companion ratings lol. It’s okay, people can have their opinions and are allowed to have wrong opinions 😄.
This is probably one of the most unique video game discussion podcasts out there. I enjoy listening to the show while I’m busy around the house or at work. I feel like it would be a good idea to involve other BioWare or etc. channels so people can get the fix if they’re caught up with ya’ll.
