Some episodes they’re focused and get into deep discussions. Some episodes they take almost the whole episode before they get into the topic. Blue your laughing shtick is awful and ruins the podcast.

Rank #1: Ep 56 - Update: Dredgen & Thorn

Podcast cover
Read more
Episode 56 brings Blue, Mel, and special guest co-host, Bo5amis together to chat about the new information that we have available to us from the Rise of Iron DLC in Destiny. While there isn't necessarily a ton of new Grimoire information, the connections that are confirmed and even those which are strongly implied are enough to warrant a full episode on its own. The conversation isn't always a serious one (surprised?) - but you definitely should stick around the end of the episode to hear something new from our friend, Dustin (his Twitter account for those who want to give him some love there for a job well done!).

Rank #2: Ep 52 - Alpha Lupi

Podcast cover
Read more
Episode 52 brings Blue, Justin, and Mel together to discuss the information that we have available to us from within the Grimoire (and a previous ARG that Bungie had) concerning the mysterious Alpha Lupi. The question of who (or, as the group discusses, what) Alpha Lupi is one that is somewhat of a popular subject of discussion in particular areas of the Destiny lore community - and for good reason. The enigma is one that, even after the years of playing and exploring in game, still remains an unknown variable within the game.

Episode 92 brings Blue, Green, and Justin back together to discuss the various ideas that have been debated about the Cabal since year one as well as begin the discussion about Ghaul, the newest adversary in Destiny 2. The team enjoys the antics of Justin's inability to make his computer behave as well (auto muting is a real thing, people) and even get to discuss a fair amount of Roman history (forgive Blue for the tangents). 

 Be sure to also stick around until the end of the show for a really special announcement from Blue.

Podcast cover

Episode 66 brings Blue, Justin, Mel, and returning special guest co-hosts Damoel and Demigod257 together to discuss the available information that we have on the infamous Fallen House of Devils. The team discusses the basic information from the Grimoire, as well as delving into a bit more detail on the implications of what this means about Servitors, the possible ramifications of the knowledge (or lack thereof) that Variks holds in regards to the Devil Splicers antics, and even possible indications of pre-Whirlwind House structure for the Eliksni.

Also, please note there is a bit of a deviation on the structure of the episode this time (pre and post show segments that were requested to be added in) - but don't worry, we'll get back to the usual structure next episode!

Rank #5: Ep 61 - The Foundries

Episode 61 brings Blue, Justin, and returning guest co-host Unisys12 together to chat about the lore that we have currently available for the weapon foundries within the City. Forgive Blue for a bit of a scratchy voice - sickness never plays well with audio, and there was only so much water available. There was a surprising amount of lore buried within the Rare weaponry that many Guardians take for granted, as well as some archive digging for some clarifying words from Bungie themselves on a few of the more developed foundries - so be sure to stay for the whole show (we might have included a bit of a pre-show conversation at the end for everyone, in light of Thanksgiving)!

Rank #8: Ep 159 - The Book of Unmaking

Podcast cover

Warning: This week's episode is a bit longer than usual - but Blue felt it was better to keep it as a single file for you to listen to rather than trying to break it into 2-3 segments.

This week, join Blue and Green as they dive into the depths of the Book of Unmaking, which we acquired recently in Destiny 2 via The Draw exotic quest. The lore book offers an amazing look into the story of the Shadows of Yor - and while it does answer a few questions, the ones that it raises are even more intriguing.

Episode 101 brings Blue and Green together to chat with each other about their first reactions to the new worlds offered by Destiny 2 - and to discuss what's already on their wish list for the game. Blue brings up the idea of viewing Destiny 1 as an "episode zero" in the series - including his concerns with that approach as well. Altogether, the reactions are immensely positive - and we're eager to see what the communities thoughts are in the coming weeks!

This week, the team presents a very high level summary of the new information that we have uncovered within the Forsaken DLC in regards to the Awoken people - note here that this is barely a scratch on the immense mountain of information that we are still trying to fully get our minds around. At the time of this episode, we are still uncovering more and more information in game that is relevant to this topic - so please be sure to weigh in over in the Discord server and on the weekly polls to continue the conversation!

Rank #11: Ep 40 - Crota Fireteam

Podcast cover

Episode 40 brings Blue, Justin, Willy, and special guest co-host grneyedmusiklvr together to chat about the first Crota fireteam to brave the depths of the Hellmouth - and their ultimate fate. Even if the topic is grim, however, have no worries - there's jokes and laughter at every step with the group as they discuss the nature of the psychological trauma of the team, the details of what we know about the individuals who made up the fireteam, and ultimately what was the cause of their failure to assassinate the son of Oryx. 

Please pardon some of the audio mishaps on this episode - Skype was being true to itself and decided to try to be as much of an interference with the conversation as possible. We are planning on taking a few steps to hopefully move to a smoother VOIP program here in the near future to make it a bit easier on your ears.

And remember: We are ill-equipped to understand [entities] that [defy] simple causality. Let us accept these limitations and proceed...and accept that all of this is speculation.

Rank #13: Ep 44 - Ghosts

Podcast cover
Read more
Episode 44 brings Blue and Justin back together to discuss those enigmatic companions of ours in the world of Destiny, the Ghosts. As both of the hosts are fans of a number of the more psychological aspects of science fiction, especially in regards to the development and dealings with artificial intelligence, there is a rather large section of the epsiode dedicated to the conversation on what makes a personality within AI and if the Ghosts that we interact with in game have that or if they are merely a fragment and reflection of a larger collective of intelligence. The nature of the known history of Ghosts (what little we know of in game currently at least) is also discussed in regards to the potential connection to some other significant theories.

Episode 32 brings Blue, Justin, and Willy together to chat about the lore surrounding the Reef Wars, a violent event in the history of Destiny that set the stage for not only the survival of the Last City through the interruption that the Awoken caused in the amassing hordes of Fallen, but also an entire expansion of the game in the betrayal and continued conflict between the Awoken and Fallen races. There is an immense amount of connections and information to be had from within the Grimoire and items alone - so be sure to check out the linked mind map summarizing those connections as well (link is below in show notes, as promised).

Podcast cover

This week, we take a closer look at the Black Armory and the history that is available to us through the words of its initial founder, Henriette Meyrin, as captured within the Black Armory Papers. These papers present a new and  unique point of view of not just the Collapse and newly Risen, but a perspective that we haven't encountered much of so far in the story of Destiny - a view of these events from the eyes of a mortal Human, colored by intimate knowledge of what had been lost in the Collapse. Yet all ends, as painful as they are sometimes, are also beginnings - and the final chapter of Henriette's life presents to us an amazing introduction to the figure of Ada-1.

Podcast cover

Episode 35 brings Blue, Justin, Willy, and the Sultry Tiger himself, My Name is Byf, together to chat about the lore about the enemy 'race' known as the Taken. Diving into the basic differences of the various forms of the creatures that we, as Guardians within Destiny experience, the group quickly jump from a mere physical description of the enemy (like why do the Taken always 'shiver') into the deeper aspects of the psyche of the overall experience of what it means to be a member of the Taken. With a good dosage of humor (blame the week off), the chat walks through the implications of some of the powers that the Taken have, as well as some of the interesting differences that they have when compared to their non-Taken form.
