The Genius: Season Three in Review (Part 1)

After exhaustively commenting on seasons one and two (S1 here, here, S2 here, here, here) and having spent the summer doing weekly Grand Final coverage (here), today we're back to embark upon The Genius: Black Garnet. In this episode we break down Fruit Stand, Jury Game, Middle Race, and Swords & Shields, plus offer our initial thoughts on the cast and discuss how the season's new twists impact the early game dynamics and bigger-picture strategies. Listen on the player below, here, or on iTunes here.

SPOILER ALERT: Everything from the first three seasons is fair game for discussion, even beyond the episodes we're talking about. Nothing from season four will come up beyond who makes it onto the cast.
