Can you believe it -- it's the third anniversary of Battle Bards already! Three years ago, Steff, Syp, and Syl joined forces to create the world's first, best, and only MMORPG music podcast. It's been an incredible ride, and for the show's birthday the Bards have invited our listeners to contribute more of their favorite tracks for a listeners request show! It's a plus-sized show, so enjoy - and thanks everyone for sticking with us through 72 episodes!
