Stage Select Podcast: World 2-1 (Score: 12)
It’s the first Stage Select of the new season, and do we have a treat for you. Joining Rob, Boris, Jason and Jon are Zvarri and our special guest host from PSNation, Torgo! With such a full crowd, what could go wrong?
For anyone who doesn’t know the structure of the Stage Select, let’s recap. All the questions come directly from our listeners. Each time we successfully get through a question, we get 1 point. We are known for our wild tangents and disagreements though, so the challenge we pose to the audience is this: Ask questions that take so long to answer that we can’t get through them fast enough.
This episode also topples the old Stage Select all time high score of 11! 12 is the new number to beat.
