I Don’t Even (Listen to This) Podcast E20 – The Tournaments (and Podcasts) Are On Fire

idel_podcast

*Quick audio note: Unfortunately we had some pretty serious issues with audio this episode and had a lot of intermittent cuts. I edited out the silences but if the conversation jumps you know why! I recommend listening to the audio version this week as it’s paced a little better.

It’s 2017 and as our humble little scene grows and grows, a lot more global tournaments are going to continue to pop up. They were all pretty terrible in 2016, so we asked Lord Ziggy to join us to talk about how they can get the format right
