L&R

I’m excited for everything new to come from this era of eza. I think Isla and Blood will bring great energy and ideas as they lead the crew:) Nothing but L&R, thanks for being a positive escape for people!

They spoil unnecessarily and eat into the mic

They spoil Death Stranding without warning on episode 320. There is a token “spoiler warning” right before they spoil several key details from Death Stranding in episode 320. As soon as he said it I tried to grab my phone and pause, but there was absolutely zero pause between the words “spoiler warning” and the spoiler sentence. I brushed that off, but the cast I guess took that as free reign to toss out spoilers without any notice. Very frustrating. Lots of mouth sounds and eating mushy foods into the mic. Disappointing podcast. Only thing that could make it worse is virtue signaling.

Update: why so many mouth sounds

WoG0331 ,

End of the show

With Brandon leaving unfortunately many will as well. The remaining cast (except blood) isn’t very capable of continuing conversation, pushing topics forward, etc. after todays episode it will probably get unsubbed and forgotten.
