Episode 503 – The Epic Mad Lib

This one should be a lot of fun! We’ve got Eric of Many Names with us for the first time in far too long! He’s pretty awesome, which is why he’s here of course. Brian’s got a really long mad lib for us, but he assures us it will be totally worth it. Since it’s extra long we’ll be giving him card names throughout the episode while we talk about even more sweet Dominaria cards! More sagas, sweet flavor text, awesome art…I can’t wait to go back home!

Episode 413 – Vanish Into Memory

I guess every show that goes long enough eventually does a clip show, right?

The details of what happened this week are a little…bizarre. But if you listen it’ll all make something that resembles sense. Enjoy the clips!

Episode 366 – Blackrock Mountain Blues

The guys are back for their monthly Hearthstone episode! We begin the episode by answering the frequent question about how the five of us became a long-running Blizzard gaming podcast. If you’ve ever wondered about our humble origins, this is the episode to listen to! Learn all about how Chewie, Brian, Mike, Dirk, and Squanto (Ecksell) got together!

After that it’s back to business as usual for a Hearthstone episode! We begin by going over new decks and recent changes to existing decks. Lots of discussions come out of this, including whether Dr. Boom should be nerfed and how they might do it and what decks we’re sick of running into all the time.

After that, Dirk takes the reins for his Lore segment. This week, thanks to the imminent release of Blackrock Mountain, he tells us all about Ragnaros the Firelord. And what a Tolkien fever dream of a story that is, holy crap.

And finally, we each pick a pair of cards from Blackrock Mountain to talk about in depth. Don’t forget, you can start playing the first wing on April 2nd!
