This show is so great! I have listened to every episode for the last 2 years or so and I look forward to it every week. Greg and Shelley are amazing hosts and I love the great synergy of creativity, content and fun in each show. They blend humor in with so much information every time! I’m a returning player to the game after many years of not playing and the show was a great way for me to get back into it. Thank you to Greg and Shelley (and all the folks who make it happen as well). This show means a lot to me and I hope you continue it forever!
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!
Dragon talk is the best place to get to see how the magic in D&D is made. Interviews with creators and announcements for upcoming releases and events.
It’s really helpful they timestamp the interviews
As other have said, it’s unfortunate that the official voice of DnD isn’t better.
Let’s start with the good: the Lore you Should Know segments are great as you get 30 minutes where designers let you into their thinking in product design and provide great nuggets for inspiration in your own home game.
The rest of the show is a tough listen for me. The hosts seem like very nice people, but the fact they do 7-10 minutes of warm up patter to start the show and do another 3-4 minutes of the same with each interview makes the show significantly longer than it needs to be. I listen to 20-25 minutes of each ~75 minute episode
