Absolutely Fantastic Listen

I had never played or read about D&D when I heard about this podcast. It is so excellent I’m totally addicted (and now play D&D). It features a load of hilarious and charming actors who will entertain you for hundreds of hours. I will destroy any second thoughts you have! Too much advertising and preamble at the beginning? The actors are so talented some of the best moments happen at the beginning (especially the ads!) Episodes are too long? After a few you’ll wish they were longer! Mica Burton is bad at acting and roleplaying? Mica Burton is only there for 3 episodes (just skip them) and most of the cast are so good you can’t skip them anyways. Plus, she seems like a good person. Honestly download and listen to a few, you won’t regret it! 10/5 stars!
