I listen to the podcast to learn about the lore but it is so apparent that these people don’t pay attention to the game at all. They read up so they can talk about the more but can’t even pronounce radiolaria correctly. They call it radioloria. Just pay attention they say it during the campaign and in strikes. These people remind of fart sniffers from South Park, think they know a lot, but are basically uneducated as youth trying to be cool left wing idiots

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 105 - Warminds (ft. Beard Grizzly)

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode 105 brings Blue, Green, and returning special guest co-host Beard Grizzly together to chat about the updated information that we have in regards to the warminds (especially Rasputin) in Destiny 2. And as normal for when Blue and Beard get together, there are tangents that get brought up. We hope you enjoy the conversation! Lost Lore this week was actually in line with the topic - we discuss the details and symbolic importance of the different pieces of music within the Arecibo adventure. Green might have had a bit of fun preparing for that...

This week, the team comes together to chat about the information that we have gotten so far about some of the figures from the upcoming DLC, Forsaken - Warning: THERE ARE SPOILERS DISCUSSED WITHIN THIS EPISODE. We break down the different figures and our thoughts so far on the upcoming DLC - with a bit of a debate on the nature of that story and it's potential transformation of the Destiny universe.

Rank #3: Lore Update - Age of Triumph

Podcast cover
Read more

This special episode brings Blue, Green, Justin, and returning special guest co-host, Damoel together to chat about the massive update to the lore for Destiny that we received this week as a part of the Age of Triumph update. Get ready - it's a bit of a crazy train. From hilarious searches with Cayde to some hefty implications (and outright confirmations), there is a ton of information that the team touches on. Warning though - this is just a brief summary of the new information! Blue will be adding options to the weekly poll starting this weekend for a more in-depth exploration of the new information and a recap of how all the stories stand now that the conclusion for them is upon us.

Rank #4: Ep 46 - The Awoken

Podcast cover
Read more
Episode 46 brings Blue, Justin, Willy, and returning guest co-host Mel (WindoftheStars) to chat about those enigmatic characters out in the deep unknown, the Awoken. While there are a number of Grimoire entries pertaining to individuals within the culture of the Awoken, the information as a whole doesn't give us much to work with - as would be expected for a race who are raised in mystery and secret. These elusive figures dance along the razor's edge between the Light and the Dark - and thrive in the shadows of the unknown...exploring those secrets is not unlike decrypting a stubborn engram. And hopefully, when that decryption has been completed, we'll find ourselves with yet another piece of the puzzle that is Destiny in our hands.

Podcast cover

Episode 81 brings Blue, Green, Justin, and special returning guest co-host MyNameIsByf, back together to chat about a story that has (literally) been over 2 years in the making within the game of Destiny - The Story of Yor. Please note that this week, we're giving you two 'episodes' - this discussion and then a separate 'Audio Grimoire Supplement' that has the full reading of all the Grimoire cards mentioned in this episode. Get ready for a longer chat - we try to keep the conversation somewhat concise, but between Blue's enthusiasm and Justin's joking...we get derailed at some points (huge surprise, we know). Blue made a point of copying his notes into this week's mind map as well, since we weren't able to touch on all the points. Please be sure to check those out and let us know your thoughts!

Podcast cover
Read more

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 #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.

This week, Blue and Beard sit down to discuss the legend and legacy of  the figure of Dredgen Yor within the Destiny universe. The release of information that came with the arrival of the Drifter and the opening of Gambit to the players has brought this conversation back into the forefront of our minds - and while we still have many questions, there are a few answers that we discuss here. Note that we aren't discussing (yet) the information which is expected to become available in the upcoming exotic quest, The Draw - though it is strongly connected to this topic.

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode 71 brings Blue, Justin, Mel, and returning guest co-host, coedbeast together to explore the available information that we currently have on the exotic armor available to the Warlock class of Guardians. As with the Hunter armor, while there isn't necessarily an overabundance of information to be found within the Grimoire iteself, the triva connections to information outside of the game world of Destiny are astoundingly interesting - and honestly there are plenty of Rabbit Holes to get lost in while walking through even this limited sampling of gear that is available to this one class of Guardians. Hope you enjoy the descent into madness - and we promise, we were pretty nice to the Warlock guest who was kind enough to come out of the library long enough to talk to us.

Podcast cover

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)!

This week, the team takes a bit of a step back - looking over the progression of our Guardians' story and where it potentially could be headed. Blue also answers a few comments at the start - so please be sure to weigh in on that to make sure we're on the right track! While it's not something that is often discussed within the game's dialogue or story itself, the potential of the Guardian and Humanity as a whole is a rather significant plot point that is also a great launching point for a number of other discussions (as you'll find here) - we hope you enjoy the chat!

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!

This week, the team comes together to chat about the abilities of Osiris, in light of the information that we had received from the Curse of Osiris DLC in Destiny 2. Blue is allowed to go on a bit of a rant on the nature of prophecies (so yes, there's about a 10-15 minute 'history discussion' on the terms "prophecy", "fractal", and "parable") as well as a somewhat lively debate on the cast's thoughts on the nature of the Infinite Forest and what some of that means on our views of Osiris.
