Love listening to these pals slowly lose their sanity and their brain cells

I am almost completely finished with listening to every episode and I’m just having a great time. I listen to these during my work hours and it feels comfortable listening to these group of friends just talk and go on the wildest tangents about these insane books.

Come for the games stay for the tangents

I wish I had found this podcast earlier! Listening to Murph try to keep the show on track while Caldwell and Emily feed of each other’s chaotic energy is the best part of my day.

Erika, a Critter Lover ,

Delightful

Like many others, I started this after catching up on NADDPOD, and it is delightful! Even if I haven’t played all the games they read books about, it’s fun to hear them break down the books, so dramatic readings, and argue about their Sonic stats. A+
