Wazoo and Blue host the first installment of Tryhard Tuesdays, a new DotP edition that tries to take a more in-depth look at being a better Dota 2 player.  Not for the typical casual player (though certain to be helpful for all).  The guys explain the purpose of the show, introduce a few segments, and talk about how important humility is in Dota 2 on this episode of the podcast.

Cyphus sits down with Dalimear and Tharsis for a talk about their D&D experience.  They discuss playstyles, tips and tricks for playing a Rogue, hybrid classes, the core composite of a D&D group and more.  There may also be a little talk about dragon dildos in this episode of the gaming podcast.  Tastefully of course.

EZ and Roland sit down for a chat about Dota 2.  Cyphus is pretty sure there's a funny voicemail in this episode, but who really knows, cause EZ and Roland failed to send an episode description.  This episode might not even be about Dota 2.  It might finally be the episode where EZ and Roland leave their women and run off to Mexico to open that little cabana shop they've always dreamed of when laying awake staring at each other wistfully through the Skype cam.  Maybe all this, maybe more, in this episode of the Dota 2 podcast.

Roland and Cyphus are joined by long-time friend Dalimear for a talk about Dungeons & Dragons, what D&D is for newcomers, their previous campaigns and why tabletop roleplaying is a great experience in the latest episode of the gaming podcast.  Note for Experienced Players: We primarily play D&D 3.5 and all discussion is based on that specific version (we intend to give 5th a try).

EZ, Roland and Cyphus sit down and record an impromptu show in place of what should have been an episode of Try Hard Tuesday.  Unfortunately, Roland failed to record Wazoo's track, so instead of Blue and Wazoo waxing philosophical about some high level Dota 2 strategy, you get Roland, Cyphus and EZ delving deep into Zai's return to school, YouTube entering streaming, and Cyphus' love of being pantsless, eating ice cream and watching Sex and the City.

Cyphus, EZ and Wazoo sit down for a recap of the day's TI5 games (spoilers), their predictions for upcoming games, what they're loving about this TI, and what they wish they had known about Dota 2 when they first started playing the game as noobs on the latest edition of The International 2015 week podcast.

EZ joins Roland live and in-studio at DotP HQ.  Cyphus writes these descriptions and wasn't there.  So because Roland and EZ didn't record until like 3 a.m. and failed to send an episode description, he has no idea what they actually talked about and feels obligated to post the ep before listening to it.  He's guessing they mostly talked about how sexy Cyphus is in person and his Adonis-like male presence that exudes both brooding mysteriousness and pure testosterone.  Probably some Dota 2 as well since we're all headed to TI5 together.  Check it out and let him know how close he was to accurately describing the latest episode of this TI5 Hype Podcast.
