61 minutes | Nov 19, 2017
Episode 19: A Change of Focus
The guys go through the news, and discuss what's coming next. Thank you to everyone who has listened to our podcast. We weren't sure what to expect when we first launched, but the reception has surpassed our expectations. If you enjoy our show, we hope you continue to listen once our new project is launched. We expect for this transition to take place very quickly, but stay tuned to our social media accounts for more information.

Episode 18: BlizzCon 2017 Wrap-up
The Blizzard gaming world is now one week removed from BlizzCon 2017. The Council discusses the big news and announcements from this year's convention, and Kyle and Jeff give their first-time impressions of the BlizzCon Benefit Dinner.
92 minutes | Oct 29, 2017
Episode 17: The Destiny 2 PC Launch Special
Our BlizzCon special went up last week, and things have been quiet since then as the convention rapidly approaches, so we decided to do something a little different with this week's show. The PC version of Destiny 2 went live on October 24th, and though it's not developed by Blizzard, it's available exclusively through the Battle.net launcher. Kyle and Jeff are joined by Garrett Barbo, a friend of the show, to see if the highly-anticipated shooter is worth checking out. Also, we will not release a new episode of The Frozen Council on Sunday, 11/5. We'll return the week after that to discuss everything that went on at BlizzCon and see how well our predictions held up.

Episode 16: The BlizzCon 2017 Pre-Show Special
The time has come. BlizzCon is less than two weeks away, so we ditched most of the regular programming for this week's show. We name our Champion of the Week, and then discuss BlizzCon for nearly two hours. Our co-hosts talk about their past BlizzCon experiences, provide a few tips for first-time attendees, and make predictions for what announcements will be made at this year's opening ceremony. At the end of the show, we also reveal the winner of our BlizzCon 2016 goody box giveaway. If you were the lucky winner, we'll be in touch with you soon! Next week's show will be a little different as well. We have decided to discuss Destiny 2 since it's coming to the Battle.net launcher on Tuesday, 10,24. We'll discuss if Blizzard gamers should take a look at Bungie's highly-anticipated sequel.

Episode 15: More Misc. BlizzCon Stuff, Halloween Events, and Junkrat is OP in Heroes
It's Halloween season, which means the spooky events in Blizzard games are starting to roll out. Halloween Terror is back in Overwatch, and Hallow's End returns to Heroes of the Storm next week. Junkrat is live on the Heroes PTR, and he's so overpowered that he's already been banned from the HGC finals. BlizzCon also remains in the conversation, as we discuss the BlizzCon Gear Store pre-sale, the reveal of the digital bonus items for every game(except Hearthstone), and the event map for the convention itself. We also continue our Champion of the Week segment by highlighting Dravvie's awesome Running of the Gnomes event, which raises money for breast cancer research.

Episode 14: The BlizzCon Schedule Has Released, and We Unveil a New Segment
BlizzCon is less than a month away, but the Blizzard news hasn't cut off completely. Blizzard Arena opened in Los Angeles, the next Overwatch League team name was unveiled, and big social changes are coming to the Battle.net desktop app. Our hosts cover all of this, and more, on this week's show! Speaking of BlizzCon, the schedule for this year's convention got released, so the guys discuss what panels they are looking forward to most. They also give their thoughts on Blizzard picking Muse to perform for the closing ceremony. Kyle also unveils a new segment, Champion of the Week, which will be included in all episodes of The Frozen Council moving forward. This week it focuses on a Blizzard employee, but the plan is to put the spotlight on people who are doing great things in the community. We also mention in this episode that we’ll be doing a pretty cool giveaway soon. Follow @frozencouncil on Twitter and listen to next week's episode for more details!
