Solo Episode 2: How to learn any speedrun? My personal recommendation and tips for newcomers!
In todays solo episode I try to answer the highly requested question "How to learn any Speedrun" or how I would learn any new speedrun and how I would recommend to learn a speedrun if you are completely new to it. A lot of people seem to have trouble with that, especially in the beginning, so in this episode I try to cover all the basics. I show you how to find the right resources and use them effectively in order to build a good solid foundation of basics and muscle memory. Muscle memory is probably the most important skill every speedrunner has to learn and master. That's why it is the biggest part of this episode since it is so important that you do that right! If you want to vote in the future for the next solo episode topic keep an eye out on my Twitter or Discord, I ask occasionally for the next topics there. Also if you have any personal suggestion of a topic or of a guest I should invite, hit me up in the DMs on both of those or just write in my public Discord server, I am always open for new recommendation and suggestions! –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– My social media, check those out for more content! - Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/flesh177 - Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/flesh177  - Twitter: https://twitter.com/Flesh177_srl  - Discord: https://discord.gg/URzSYF9 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– My name is Flesh177, a passionated Speedrunner, who tries to help out others on their speedrun-journey!

The struggles of a Speedrunner: Hand pain, competition and mindset - Talking with Simply about the important topics!
We all know Speedrunning can be a pain in the ass sometimes. Besides learning and getting better at the game which can already be really hard there is much more to learn and to endure as a speedrunner the further you want to get. So today I invited Simply, a very experienced speedrunner who went through a lot. We ended up talking about all the critical points in his career such as his hand issues, problems with mindset and the grind in the competitive field of speedrunning. He is explaining a lot from his perspective and is giving great advice on given topics. What a worth episode it was, me and Simply really loved to record this one.

World record culture and the Speedrun community - chatting with Kosmic about general topics!
Most people who ever held a world record for a longer time probably have experienced that: the general audience of twitch doesn't know what really stand behind a world record.  They think there is a big rivalry between runners and also their behavior pressures runners to performe well otherwise they are not worth it. Because of reasons like that I talked with Kosmic about that topic to clear some things up.  We are also humans and we do understand why a world record is more exciting than just a regular run or personal best. But it is also our hobby and all we want is just getting fun and enjoyment out of that hobby. So I hope after this episode you understand us better.  Please make sure to follow Komsic on Twitch, he is a fantastic Mario Bros. 1 runner (the best out there in my opinion.  I would also like to remind you that you can catch those podcast episodes live, so make sure to check out my twitch channel, there you can interact with me and my guests before and after the episode recording!

Why RNG can be something good in your Speedrun - chatting with Vysuals
In the 2nd episode I recorded with Vysuals we talked and explained everything you need to know about RNG in Speedruns! Since Vysuals has to deal with RNG consistently in his speedrun (Hollow Knight) he got a lot of valuable info on how to deal with randomness mentally, which you need to listen too.  He also clears up the "misconception" that RNG is nothing good in Speedruns, in fact he believes a random factor gives most speedruns more depth and make them uniqu and special. Of course there is the need of the right balance between randomness and pure skill parts in a speedrun, but if they are met together well we get beautiful speedruns, like Hollow Knight.  Hope you stop hating on RNG and you finally start to see the postive, thank you Vysuals for chatting with me about this topic it was very informative, please do me a favoure and support and watch him on his journey to become a partnered streamer on twitch, link to his channel here!  Catch those episodes live if you can on my twitch cahnnel, would make me happy to see you guys there and chat with you a bit about the topics too. Me and my guests have obviously enough spare time to talk with all of you!

The life cycle of Speedrunning and climbing your way to the top - asking Speedrunning legend Kosmic how it's done!
I was interviewing Super Mario Bros. 1 legend Kosmic and ask him about his journey in this and multiple other Speedgames. He talked about how he got into Speedrunning, how he picks up games and improves in them and what his mindset and approach looks like to achieve his goals. Since most people once they reached world record level in one game they can do it in any game I was curious how that is done, Kosmic got the answers for that in this episode! On top of that we talked about the life cycle of Speedrunning and his struggle with goals and times such as his 4:55 in Any% and his road to 18:59 in warpless (speaking of SMB1).
