Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 78 titled “What’s Lore?”
We are a your Blizzard Entertainment podcast. The show you are about to hear was recorded on Sunday, September 20th, 2015. On this weeks show we talk about everything eSports as we head to BlizzCon, the two newest Heroes in Overwatch, and what we can expect coming from the Warcraft Team!
Five Star Stitcher Review from Chord: Epic and Kilroy do a great job of putting on a fantastic podcast that is edited well and continues to be tweaked and improved for the best quality (and it shows!). The best thing is that these guys are real gamers. They play the games they’re talking about and I enjoy the banter and debate that occurs between two people who know each other well. I’ve just started listening and look forward to more shows.
