M from Ireland ,

The pinnacle of dnd pods

I never have time to watch the video version so the podcast is great for me. A host of outstanding players and Matt Mercer has to be one of the best storytellers around.

The keep it moving and know how to make dnd enjoyable for the viewer/ listener. I love them all but Laura Bailey has to be the MVP!

Is it Thursday yet?

Excellent D&D show

While not quite the full critical role experience I find this podcast is an excellent way of recapping the campaign.

Phenomenal

The friendship and companionship is so evident. Somehow these group of ridiculously talented people managed to transfer a long run home game into the staple for dnd that it is now. Thank you guys for the amazing show
