What makes a good Rocket League podcast? Is it game knowledge? Expert analysis? An intimate understanding of how to compete at the highest level?
The answer to that question depends on who you ask and what you’re looking for. Maybe it’s worth thinking about it in this way: Rocket League is a game and an esport. It’s not some corporate business. It’s a form of entertainment.
Returning to those questions, then, I’d say the answer is precisely none of these…
The real reason to listen to a Rocket League podcast
Myself (Emile “Cole” Cole) and Alex “Stumpy” Knight are finding an army of fans who reckon Rocket League podcasts should be one thing above all else: funny.
We’ve ranted and moaned our way through many episodes since the end of 2018 with a new one (almost) every week.
Getting the big guns in the podcast
Along the way, we’ve (somehow) encouraged the upper echelon of RL pros to join us.
GarrettG, retals, Turbopolsa, Fruity, Violent Panda, EyeIgnite and others have all featured, sharing their unique stories and showcasing their wonderful personalities!
Gregan talking over coaches coaching coaches:
Or looking back at Lawler and his involvement in Rocket League esports:
And of course, I have to include The King of Rocket League too: Kronovi himself:
Getting serious too
Even though the majority of the things we talk about are lighthearted, occasionally we can get serious too.
For example, when Lawler was booted from the RLCS, he turned to the Poddy C to speak out about his experiences and critiques, and also to thank his fans for their amazing support. Things got emotional, yo.
In 2020, we’ve seen our first RLCS cancellation due to Coronavirus. As much as we wanted to skip the whole topic, it’s sort of impossible to do so.
Looking ahead for the Poddy C Podcast
2020 is shaping up to be a massive year for me and Stumpy.
Our Twitch channel’s healthier than ever, our YouTube’s awakening from its slumber and the SubPar Poddy C is popping off.
We’re also glad to be partnering with GamersRdy over different initiatives which we’ll be sharing as things develop, starting with the sponsorship we received.
So if any of this sounds like your cup of tea, listen to us each week on Spotify, iTunes, or YouTube (or all the other weird ones like Google Podcasts or whatever. Seriously, who actually uses that?).
If you have suggestions for what you’d like to see in future podcast episodes, anything related to Rocket League or the esports side then drop us a line on Twitter.
