Opened my eyes

With write every adventure as a dungeon. Gonna look into the book. Good stuff

TTRPGs given literary analysis

If you love table top role playing games, this podcast will delight you by subjecting them to a literary analysis.

It's fun, interesting and very enjoyable. The intro is a funky delight, the hosts are insightful and each bring a unique and informed take on the topic.

This is a podcast I'd recomend to someone who's heard of gaming but has yet to dip their toe into their first session... it's a podcast I'd recommend to a seasoned GM looking for insperation for her/his next campaign!

One of my favourites

Only discovered this podcast in the last several weeks and it has firmly become one of my favourite gaming podcasts. The group offer insightful reviews and discussions of games +/- adventures that are really helpful with for understanding the game but also in aiding groups to decide to play a given RPG or scenario. Highly recommended.
