A very funny and engaging Actual Play podcast

I’ve loved listening to this podcast. It makes me laugh so very hard! The audio is always quite high quality, and Rev’s ability to come up with so many distinct voices is amazing.

I also love that this is a podcast with a bunch of friends having a fantastic time gaming together.

Fun with friends

Just started listening as I want to run Monster of the Week myself; this show is great! Plenty of wacky shenanigans and cool moments.
