    ERROR: Title Too Long [ep89 ft Paul Foxcroft]

    ERROR: Title Too Long [ep89 ft Paul Foxcroft]

    Paul Foxcroft is a comedian, writer and Dungeon Master who joins Liam & Ben to answer the age old questions of whether we'd rather be too wet or too dry? What fish would we be? We also try to score some lucrative endorsements and talk about how brave we are.

    There's an owl in your bum.

    We first encountered Paul Foxcroft through the Questing Time Twitch Channel - a live, weekly Dungeons & Dragons show that kept us sane through 2020. Check out the channel here:
