Policies and Fine Print

Passionately Casual Podcast Spoiler Policy

Passionately Casual Podcast adheres to a strict four-week ban on spoilers from the date any new content is published, including but not limited to movies, episodes, books, and game story content. This policy is designed to respect the hosts, contributors and our viewers/listeners, giving everyone a reasonable window of time to engage new content before we open it up for discussion on the show. When a spoiler ban is lifted, the content is thereafter considered “fair game” for discussion and may be mentioned or discussed freely and openly without reservation whenever relevant. We will always announce closer to the beginning of an episode when a spoiler ban has been lifted on a given piece of content to give our viewers/listeners fair warning.

3) Contest or giveaway entrants are responsible for ensuring they adhere to contest rules and provide contact details as stipulated in the contest rules.
