  1. Your discussion on the lore/bosses of Grim Batol made me think of a possible article that may be fun to write: “Why your character is awsome” (or some other name)

    You see, too often I try to follow the in-game lore with no supplements, and while I usually feel somewhat satisfied with the defeat of some significant character (typically from that shiny loot), I typically don’t exactly know the true consequences of what my character just did.
    Basically, I’m kind of curious to read about how epic my character truly is (and everyone else) in the world of warcraft (assuming I’ve done the content, of course).

    Other then that, great podcast! It was very informative and provided me with an hour of something to listen to :)

  2. These podcasts are the perfect thing to listen to during my daily random heroic on my characters. I’ve only listened to three, because I just found this website about a week ago. But I’m glad to see that Juggynaut is still serving the WoW community. Has great content and sound quality. Thanks.
