Such good content

I listen to the Starting Zone almost every week. It always delivers high quality content that helps to inform the player base. While I don’t always agree with some of the opinions on the game, they deliver well reasoned and thoughtful commentary that helps me understand other parts of the player base. Keep up the great work.

WOW

This podcast gives good information on weekly wow going one. If you’re looking for update on the Boston Celtics or New York Yankees this is not the podcast for you, but if you want WOW information give this show a listen.

Informative, Helpful, and Friendly

Been listening since BFA (expect Shadowlands because I happily skipped that entire xpac) and this show never feels to make my week better. Spencer and Jason’s advice is effective for every kind of player from the first day casual to 19 year raiders. It always helps me figure out what activities are available and how I should spend my time depending on both what rewards I want and how much time I have. This show has probably saved me more time than Wowhead at this point. Thanks for making this overly complicated game much more approachable. Loktar O’gar!
