So Much Fun!

My son and I started listening to this a year or so ago, and have fallen in love - him with Vox Machina, and me with the Mighty Nein. I'm glad to see the parental advisory here, because when I first looked at this it said E for everybody, so I didn't bother to listen with my then-11-year old the first time. There is a *lot* of profanity used - in understandable ways/places, but far more than he's used to hearing. After listening to one episode with him though, I could see how valuable it would be for him as a D&D newbie to be exposed to this level of play. One conversation about when it's okay to use profanity later, he was off to the races.

Critical Role

I Changed my review on this. It’s a good podcast. Some of the characters voices get a little bit on my nerves, but the story is solid. Getting a little long. Looking forward to the next campaign though. Knot the Brave character is a great story and Sam R. Does a great job. And Mr. Mercer is a Great DM. Perfect mixture of comedy, action, drama, and a little suspense.

Best Dungeons and Dragon podcast.

Critical Role is the best DnD (Dungeon and Dragons) podcast. Great voices, ambience, and scene setting ensure you lose nothing between the Twitch stream or YouTube release.
