The podcast arises from its own ancient mythology, entangled and twisted to comprehend, unless explained in detail, like this page does.
The Golden Zero
It is a piece of podcast merch, that can not be bought. It can only be earned by deeds of extreme worthiness. It is an enamel pin that can only be worn by those that have earned it. Those that don't earn it, but wear it are said to combust into ashes and have other terrible things happen to them.
The Chancellor of the podcast
Kanan and Manek claim to be unpaid employees of the Chancellor of the podcast, who forges the golden zeros in celestial fire and hands them over to Gorboroth, the podcast eagle.
Gorboroth: The podcast eagle
This majestic creature of the podcast offers its services by transporting the golden zero from the Chancellor to Manek and Kanan, and from them to worthy people in faraway places across mountains and oceans.
Mylar: The keeper of the podcast
Mylar is said to store the golden zeros in subterranean catacombs which are a direct passage from the podcast HQ here in Bangalore, to Paris.
Gisquel: The accountant and head of HR of the podcast
You need to E mail her and cc it to Mylar as well, in case you want to request a golden zero from the chancellor.
Tim: The shape shifting demon
Not to be confused with Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, Tim lives under the earth and he eats podcasts sometimes. He shape shifts into co-host of podcasts in an attempt to slowly and slyly eat up podcasts. But the only way to foil his plans is to have a single host podcast because Tim needs a co-host to eat up and can't do that without a co-host.
