Ex-professional League of Legends player Peng “Doublelift” Yilang has started a new podcast with Cloud9 coach Nick “LS” DeCesare and LEC analyst Marc “Caedrel” Lamong called Trash Talk.

Doublelift, Caedrel, and LS have all been in the community spotlight in recent months for varyious reasons. All three are now joining together on a podcast that offers years of professional experience inside the scene and potentially valuable insights.

Thrash Talk podcast debuts as smash hit

The Trash Talk podcast’s first episode has gone over swimmingly with the League of Legends community. By combining two personalities with experience playing professionally in Caedrel and Doublelift with popular content creator and current Cloud9 LCS coach LS, fans are offered a glimpse behind the curtain of pro play. That insight included some wild stories from the trio’s time in esports, especially from LS and his time in Korea.

The three discussed everything from unusual encounters during their time on previous teams to Cloud9’s wild play style in their first proper week of play in the LCS. With picks like Sona support and Ivern mid, LS’ coaching style has set itself apart from the rest of the LCS and this took up much of the discussion. LS has always been an enormous proponent of aggressively prioritizing enchanters and other champions who can foil the plan of more binary enemy compositions.

From League of Legends’ longevity to LS being locked in a room with members of the Gravity esports organization to salaries so low they weren’t livable, the three had plenty to connect over. The community seems to have welcomed this new content with open arms, with multiple clips garnering attention on Twitter and Reddit, as well as other social platforms.

This is Doublelift’s first serious effort to create a podcast, but Caedrel and LS are no strangers to the medium. Caedrel has become the regular cohost for the LEC’s EUphoria, and LS has been creating content for years with a wide cast of characters.
