The Poast sweaty gamer network (PPN) was created by noted anti twitter user, ex 4tran janitor, and alleged crypto milionaire, anime graf mays, to host wyatt after he got banned on twitter. Wyatt used to be a fixture on the old TRS forums, and Graf on twitter tread in similar areas as a TRS clout and social media addict named borzoi. Borzoi, bootstrapped his way up the TRS clout ladder, hosted several shows, and used his lit degree to impress the TRS audience so much that he was able to get an exceeding amount of clout. Over time, borzoi began to resent twitter b/c he kept getting banned, which got in the way of his dopamine, so he grew to resent twitter. When graf started poast, borzoi shilled it on TRS really hard, meaning poast's early userbase was 1/2 RW anti twitter people, and 1/2 people who knew borzoi/were TRS people. The latter group would morph into what we call podcast race today. TRS would bring poast staples like DK (noted telegram cocks farmer, borzoi ass kisser, and white nationalist buddhist), Randbot (Sven worshipper and the person in all of this most of you are the most familiar with), Alex McNabb (noted mutant, hater of poor white people, and father of a heroin baby IIRC) and Sven.
Well things were pretty good for awhile, albeit NJP/TRS would occasionally get into fights with non-supporters, culminating in a series of hellthreads prior to and when TheTheGatorGamerGamer joined poast (the 4th jimpact of TRS for the record). These would leave key moobment figures like Sven and borzoi dissillusioned with fediverse, with borzoi involved in nosegate
Read about the nosegate here:
Overtime Borzoi's endless spergery slowly gains more enemies on fedi, many of whom he terms "mad-at-podcasts-race, calling something xrace being a joke from one of his podcasts. The logical response, podcast race, becomes the term de-jour for his ball fanners.
Eventually the stress of "hellthreading" and having people tell you they don't like your cocks gets to Sven, who calls everyone on poast a sweaty gamer and quits (iirc, its covered in this thread), which causes Graf to unban the nose emoji, call sven and co jews and causes borzoi to private and then delete his fedi public presence. This caused the first of several major rifts in the podcast race community, the founding of mugicha (a poast refugee instance), and randbot being in an awkward situation between the two e-dads who enable his grift (sven and graft).
