Bennydtown ,

Level up !

Great podcast for D&D enthusiasts. I was looking for a place to find practical instruction and a bit of colourful storytelling thrown in.

Samesilvermoon ,

For people who want to continue to love D&D

You can tell how much these guys love D&D, and they really want you to have the best time playing. I am excited for more episodes.

Swilps ,

Great insights!

Super fun dudes to listen too, looking forward to more episodes! As someone who’s lived a “d&d adjacent” lifestyle but not an avid player - this podcast gets me psyched about the idea of playing more (and maybe even dipping a toe into DMing??). Hosts have a lot of insights from different perspectives and experience levels, with fun stories along the way. Keep it up!
