Just amazing

I listen to a lot of podcasts and this is just amazing.

I drive a truck so I have hours of nothing to do but drive, but listening to this podcast helps me get through the long days and I highly recommend even if you do not play DND

This was very interesting. I’ve never read any of these but some of them the one that has 7 different characters sounded really good. I will check that one out! Overall I enjoyed this.
