Talkshows are regular podcasts which features competitors from the competition as they discuss various topics and give out awards to the tournaments participants. It was first created during the early stages of the I'm A Speedrunner 3 and has remained a feature of the tournaments ever since.
The talkshows were commonly uploaded to the main SpyroSpeedruns community channel but in some cases would appear on the tournament channel themselves. As the tournaments went on, the talkshow fluctuated in how many there were spanning from several episodes to only one or two per tournament. Some didn't even focused on awards at all.
During the talkshow, awards are given out to players who have achieved something. Below is a list of common awards given each show:
- Most Exciting Match
- Most Boring Match
- "The Machine King" - Biggest Fail
- Most Unfair Loss
- Fastest Runner
- "Blue Gem" - Slowest Runner
- Most Proactive Group
Some awards only appear in certain tournaments or even exclusivly to one or two podcasts.
