But Wait! There’s Lore! is returning home to Warcraft Radio! Right here is where it all began for Pride and his legendary podcast all the way back in 2008. It has been 10 years since the show last appeared on Warcraft Radio, and we couldn’t be any more excited!
Later seasons of But Wait! There’s Lore! was a web series with talking heads, animations, game shows, and other forms of video magic, unfortunately as Pride grew older and had to support an ever growing family, the amount of time required to continue producing a show of that caliber was unfortunately too much to handle.
In Season 9, But Wait! There’s Lore! is going back to its roots in the form of an Audio Podcast with a smaller cast and more focused discussions. Not only is the show returning to its core foundations, it’s returning to its original platform as a part of the newly revived Warcraft Radio!
We asked Pride to share a few words about this momentous occasion;
I am so excited to be bringing this show back, Shadowlands has completely restored my love and interest in Warcraft Lore, there is so much to explore, so much to take in, and so many questions that I need answered. [Impervium] pushed hard for me to bring the show back, but what I’m seeing and hearing in the shadowlands alpha and beta I’ve been playing is what really pushed me over the edge.-Pride
We also asked why there was such a long hiatus after the previous season and what’s different about this time around, he replied;
I told myself the only way I would bring the show back is if I could do it right, if I could actually put on a whole season, you know, 20 to 30 episodes at a minimum, I couldn’t bring myself to do another 7 or 8 episode season and call it But Wait! There’s Lore… It had to be done right, and I think the decision to go back to audio and only bring in hosts that were as passionate as I am about the lore and honestly wanted to be apart of it. I think we’ve hit the mark for that.-Pride
