Episode 6 - Pad Dash: Deep Space
We're back again, this time with a discussion of Nisei's hotly anticipated world's banlist update. This one is quite heavy on the theory based analysis and low on the actual conclusions but hopefully, once the dust has settled a bit, we'll be able to bring some more helpful conclusions and lists we're looking at on the blog

Episode 5: Continental Drift
In which we discuss continentals, inters, the meta going into worlds and when we hope the banlist is going to be announced - this was totally recorded before NISEI announced when that would actually happen, promise

Episode 4 - What is clot anyway?
We're back, and on this episode Mike, John, Chris and an additional bonus Chris discuss: the latest banlist update from Nisei, our approach to the upcoming fite nite event and the lists we're playing and the highly varied, different and shocking runner decks all of the other teams are taking to that event - as well as demonstrating that we really, definitely know what is in our own, carefully refined decks. The lists in question can all be seen here

Episode 2 - Rotation and Update and Gateway Oh My
So a whole lot's happened, after a bit of a break post worlds and a long gap since we've had some new cards there's suddenly a ton to talk about. System Update and System Gateway have both been released and the third major rotation of cards has happened, taking out the SanSan Cycle and Honor and Profit. On this episode Chris, Mike and John talk through what the major changes to the meta mean for each faction and our very first thoughts on what we'll be looking at this week, prior to the Chatteris and Stevenage store championships in the next couple of weeks. Please note that for scheduling reasons we recorded this on the evening of Saturday the 27th, after the runner and corp economy articles had been released but before the full spoiler gave us the last handful of cards. None of those really changed anything in our analysis although a couple of them are pretty playable cards (particularly Weyland Restructure and Ansel 1.0) but at the time we didn't know what they did. Also, the decks we mention towards the end are very much our first assumptions about the places to be looking as we start testing. Things are churning very quickly as people process the cards and even in the last couple of days we've shifted a bit. Asa is stepping right back to the front of the pack with Anoetic Void once we all stopped trying to fit Lakshmi into it and accept that it's changed a bit, and Neurospike Weyland decks are looking like a tier 1.5 rogue outsider that can't really be ignored. Crim, as ever, remains the fun police.
