Have there ever been so many top players in one podcast? We've gathered five- to ten-minute interviews with Zach Lesage, Danny Altavilla, Isaiah Bradner, Grant Manley, and Azul Garcia Griego. In each interview we ask them a little about how we can all improve our game, and a little about them.

Hunter Butler’s grandma is confirmed cooler than yours, and there’s nothing you can do about that. What you can do is listen to Hunter talk about how he got into Pokemon, what most players could to improve and get the Stones.
Hunter also talks about his coaching and gives me some advice. He talks about how the Stones came about. He just generally wows.
