Roland is joined by Wazoo for a Cyphus-free episode!  Of course, Cyphus is still the one who posted this episode and this episode description despite being away from the studio.  But nobody told Cyphus what they talked about.  So he was forced to guess.  It's probably safe to assume that the episode contains the following elements: 1. Doodle-oo's or some such, 2. Conversational tributaries that rival the rants of madmen, 3. Lies and slander about Cyphus' character, general-ness in Dota 2, lack of Dota 2 skill, how he introduces the show and possibly even cross-dressing if previous episode are any indicator, and 4. Arguments fueled by being blood related.  All this, or possibly none of this, on the latest episode of the Dota 2 podcast.
