Zwiftcast Episode 97: Yumezi – was it worth the wait? The community verdict

Well, was it worth the wait? Yumezi has landed – the first new map, and the first new world in Zwift , for quite some time. Eagerly-awaited, much-delayed but now finally here, what does the community make of the new tarmac with a strongly Eastern flavour?

The Zwiftcast abandons its usual format for a special episode soliciting opinion on probably the most beautiful world yet to be released by Zwift.

Simon, Shane and Eric Schlange from the Zwift Insider have their say, but perhaps more importantly the Zwiftcast flies around the world to hear from prominent members of the Zwift community on their reaction to Yumezi.

We also speculate on how the Makuri Islands might develop in the future.

We hope you enjoy listening.

Hi Simon, big fan of the podcast here. I have listened to every single episode as they came out and will continue to do so as they normally provide interesting insights and perspectives I would not have considered on my own. Doing that in an entertaining manner is an achievement worthy of praise. I also do appreciate that making the podcast is a lot more work than I would have been willing to put in, but to be fair to David: out of 97 episodes this one ranks a solid 97th when it comes to content. It can be summed… Read more »

Thank you for addressing the matter of Nathan’s absence. I take your word for it. But I must disagree that this is a reflection of the community reaction. I am a member of the Zwift community. I’m in Facebook groups and a very active race team Discord server. My assessment of the reaction is mostly indifference, mingled with some meek positivity, irritation and disappointment. And the positivity is mostly in the form of optimism that this will one day be a bigger map that will include the Tokyo course and other routes.

Agreed David! Couldn’t stomach more than a few minutes of this snoozefest. Bring back Nathan!
