Shroom for Two Episode 25: Paris Hilton's Deathbed VR Puzzle Hunt

Hello, Heroes! Welcome to an episode of Shroom for Two with a title so weird, we forgot to read it!

This week, we ponder the mechanical implementation of Three Nut and why it makes weird things happen. Then, through some listener mail, pondering a collection of decks from metas past, and the implications of releasing a set in two batches. Then, we check out SuraF and Justini's awesome graphics, wherein they ponder the relative power of various event cards. Finally, Mike asks you to ponder which block meter shenanigans generate the most feelbads.

Stick around after the show, where we ponder why Ready Player One looks so lame.

Shroom for Two Episode 23: Peas to Meet You

Hello, Heroes! Welcome to a wholesome, green episode of Shroom for Two!

Then, we answer some listener mail from listeners who were cool enough to send their questions in to Don't you want us to answer your questions?

Then, we discuss Bonus Track Buckethead, and how that Smash deck from f00gers absolutely destroys every deck Taylor plays on the ladder. Don't you want to beat Taylor on the ladder?

In lieu of our normal show structure, we record a few minutes of preamble, then instruct you to pause the show and watch the matches. Then, after the matches, restart the show to hear our after action report!

We'll be back to our normal format next week. Keep sending in Triassic Triumph-related questions to!

Shroom for Two Episode 18: Beast Feast

Hello, Heroes!

Welcome to Shroom for Two! The only Plants vs Zombies: Heroes podcast featuring some fan mail from the designers of the game itself!

To start, we climb to the top of a South Philadelphia lightpole and talk about the daily challenges. We posit some different game modes that are analogous to other PVZ game modes.

Then, we read a smattering of listener mail, including one from Devin Low, creative director of PVZ Heroes! We're both over the moon about that, so you get to hear us get all giddy. If you want to send us some listener mail, email us at!

Finally, we give Beastly cards their turn in the Class Warfare arena.

Shroom for Two Episode 16: Guardians of the Guacodile

Hello, Heroes!

Welcome to episode 16 of Shroom for Two! This episode is packed full of cards we love: between Gargologist on Card of the Week, Guardian on Class Warfare, and Spudow on Deck of the Week, you'll hear plenty about why we love to play these cards. Even more astonishingly, Taylor and Mike talk extensively about Guacodile without making a single millennials/avocado toast joke! We'd have thought of it if we hadn't wasted all of our time and money scarfing avocado toast.

If you've got any jokes about millennials, or ideas about what you'd like to hear some millennials talk about on Shroom for Two, please send us an email to!
