DrFidget goes to a noise filled PC and records a podcast to start his season. Joining him are the people that ended his last 4 seasons. Ninahaza, Dtrain, Aralevent, and SuperIntegration are on the program to talk pizza, LCQs, and then try shout about the metagame before the place gets too loud.



September 16th, 2014

This week is solid gold baby. Worlds competitors and Gamblers Lati, Yellowbox, and Shiloh are joined by TheBattleRoom, the only member of the Rollouts that doesn’t entirely suck. We take a look back at worlds, ahead to regionals, and then go over the first week of NPA and how much we all love Scott.

New US National Champion Alex "Evan Falco" Ogloza joins the podcast this week, along with Toler "Dimsun" Webb, Ashton "linkyoshimario" Cox, and Logan "yellowbox" Castro. We go over their teams, and then swap war stories and travel advice.


Shout Out To Nationals

July 2nd, 2014

Dimsun tries and fails to keep an episode on topic featuring 2013 US National Champ KingofMars, 2011&2012 Senior Nats Champ CT_Cybertron, 5th in CP TheBattleRoom, and noted vacuum enthusiast MrBopper. They do manage to talk a fair bit about the metagame, CP Standings, underused mons, and eventually give out some tips for nationals. It's bonkers.

We try record 2 shows at once and it goes about as well as could be expected. This week Sam (DrFidget), Toler (Dimsun), Jake (sabelyemagma), and Blake (MrBopper) talk briefly about the International Challenge May, Premiere Challenges, and Zog. Then we did multibattles for the live show so most of that is cut.
