    Hey everyone,
    It's Travis and Kaitlin with Fool & Scholar Productions with a very important update.
    First, we will soon depart on our first actual vacation, not including sick days or work trips, since becoming full time podcasters! But before that, we have a work trip we're embarking on this week to host a tale of adventure at this year's D&D In A Castle... 
    Now a few updates!
    To fund our shows and thank our amazing patrons, we are launching time-sensitive supporter-exclusive pins on our Patreon page! The pins celebrate the first season of Don't Mind and the success of Dark Dice, so check them out! 
    Be sure to sign up today because we will order only enough for those signed up during the Drive Period thru October 18th, and we won't be making more! 
    A link to our detailed Patreon post is available in the show notes... 
    Now, in the realm of something completely different... 
    We here at Fool & Scholar have a YouTube page where we post the audio from our shows, and for those who subscribe, you might just notice something big drop on September 9th! No hints as of yet, but we create a lot of shows and are very excited to announce a new story coming to life... So be sure to check out our YouTube and subscribe to see the newest excitement as it releases on the 9th at noon Eastern Standard Time.
    Now, the little bit of news you've been waiting for...
    When we return in September you may just see a new drop on The White Vault feed, a little Summer Short... This summer short will drop a few clues for our next supporter-exclusive White Vault mini-series, coming out later this year!
    So thank you all.
    As you can tell, we've been really busy, and we're looking forward to a bit of a break. 

    All the best,  and for once, for us, Travel is Advised.
    -Travis + Kaitlin (& Eezo)

Penfold1992 ,

One of the best

Brilliant story from the off. Top notch sound effects and the part narrated, part dramatisation is done in a very unique way and works so well. I’ve been through all seasons multiple times now and I’ll no doubt go through it again more than once or twice more.
If I had any complaints (and it would be a very minor one) then there are one or two characters that take a small amount of getting used to but that won’t take long. It’s so well done that you’ll soon forget about that.
I’ve listened to VERY many dramatised podcasts (along with others on other platforms) and this definitely sits in my top 5.

Dalegend5 ,

Great show

Brilliant right from the beginning and I’m looking forward to listening to more in future keep up the good work

lizzie_the_duck ,

Such a stunning show

I can’t believe we’re almost at the penultimate episode. I
The show has been fantastic from start to finish. It’s a multilingual (transcripts available for free on the Fool and Scholar patroon page), atmospheric show (with stunning sound design) with such a wonderful slightly Lovecraftian, slightly “the thing” style show with a compelling story arc over 5 seasons. Highly recommend!!
