It is time to scream and shout!
That is because the Hyper Voice is celebrating the anniversary of their return to the podcast airwaves!
The Hyper Voice Podcast has been around since 2016 with Alex and Stephen. These two podcasters hit the airwaves to make sure that people can hear about the Pokemon VGC scene. They did that for forty-three episodes until they had to stop. That all changed on May 11th, 2019 when they came back louder then ever with a Hyper Voice!
Being on the airwaves is an amazing feat! Even better when you come back after a long rest. This may be not be their first season but it feels like a brand new show when there is so many amazing things happening in the Pokemon VGC Scene. Alex and Stephen came back at the end of the 2019 Ultra Series where Legendary Pokemon reign supreme. These two podcasters witness the advent of the Dynamax explosion. While the Sword & Shield battles had to be put down, these two players are still picking up their microphones to talk about VGC from any time period. Just like they always do with amazing great guests. Just like they did many years ago.
We at Pokemon Crossroads have talked to Alex and Stephen to get their top five picks from The Hyper Voice. Take a listen to these episodes to get a great idea what you can expect from this podcast and why you should be hearing to these hyper voices!
