The ninth episode comes in just over the wire.

It’s time to review the crab with an accidentally super-sized episode. We have a weird, fact-filled episode of Ranking the Kingdom on hand and ready. One for the ages! Here’s a handy timeline too, just in case you’re a frequent listener and don’t need a refresher on how the ranking system works:

(0:00 to 3:36) Intro – There’s a new sub-reddit, reddit.com/r/rankingthekingdom, and I explain my plans for it as quickly as possible before getting into the good stuff.

(3:49 to 10:52) Rating System – A breakdown of the rating system for any new listeners, as well as some clarification on how scores are decided.

(10:55 – 58:43) The Review – Here’s where the real fun begins. Sit back and enjoy learning about the horror show that is the Crab.

(58:58 – 01:12:56) The Ranking – The facts are over. This is where we give the Crab a ranking.
