Final Thoughts

What I like about this podcast is how each of the individual’s experience offers different perspectives. The in-depth discussions help the viewers draw closer to each guest as they tell their stories.

One episode that stood out to me was the interview with Chris Higgins. Since he has done behind the scenes work on the CTWC, such as filming the CTWC and being the referee. That episodes featured interesting stories of what Chris Higgins had to deal with as referee.

Another episode that stood out to me was the interview with ITZsharky. Sharky offered interesting perspective on “DAS vs Hypertap”. He also talks about how he plans on promoting Classic Tetris and his future as a YouTuber.

You can find a list of episodes on YouTube. (They are now uploaded to CTM channel) You can also listen to the episodes on other podcasting apps, such as Spotify, iTunes, Google Podcasts, and more.
