Lovely, Insightful Show

I love learning about new games from this show because they take the time to really talk about the character creation process and how it fits in with the game. Amelia and Ryan are a treat to listen to, and have a warm dynamic that’s so inviting to hear.

Fun way to explore new games

Even though they had trouble answering my unusual question in their question and answer episode I am impressed that they tried.
This is the best podcast to find out about new games and see if the game fits your desires.

Such a delight

Hosts are so wholesome and have great chemistry together. I love their enthusiasm for the games their guests talk about. Listens like a friend podcast for TTRPG nerds.

Ps. The Christmas one is my favorite by far
