Exactly what I was looking for.

As a passionate player and dabbling DM and I was looking for a casual but informative podcast. This is perfect. Joe and Ben seem to be exactly on my level and I was able to automatically relate to them during the first episode!

This is my favourite podcast, not just my favourite d&d podcast! Keep up the good work guys.
