Such an Incredible Podcast

I cannot praise the Dice for Brains podcast team enough! I started listening because I wanted to hear some Star Wars stories, but honestly - I would listen to anything these folks put together! I have laughed and shed tears listening to you. The storytelling, the acting, the drama... I love it!

The Star Wars adventures you create are especially inspiring to me, as they completely capture the feel of the universe, and give me ideas for my own campaign. A really big point of praise is that your episodes are ‘Star Wars clean’, as I have been able to share these stories with my children.

Your podcast has helped bring me and my kids together as I run adventures for them, and I’m very grateful for that. Thank you!

May the Force be with you all.

Superb for both Players and Game Masters

I have been a gamer for over 33 years now and even to this day I try to learn something new about the hobby every day. I was introduced to this podcast through the Order 66 Podcast and had a daunting task ploughing through the episodes. I have loved the clarity of the story, the enthusiasm of the participants, the fun at the table, the talent displayed by all involved. I have taken away a lot from this podcast which I will be applying to my own game.

I would also like to call out Susan White for her portrayal of Behr in a gut-wrenching episode towards the end of Season 3. Her acting drew me into Behr's plight and saw me crying along with her character - something that I never thought possible with a podcast (it was also a tad awkward being at work.

I should also mention that Ross is an amazing and talented game master, actor and story teller, and I love all of the stories that are appearing on the show. I also would like to thank JoShu Reynolds and David Wright who have me always in hysterics with their banter.

Well done on an amazing podcast. Now I have to binge some more to get up to the current episodes.
