An Awesome Official Podcast!

I have been playing D&D for a few years now (still not ready for those really big 5E [5th edition] advanced rule books yet!) and this is my first time watching—Ahem! Listening—to a D&D podcast! Sure, it can be a bit boring here and there, but it’s still a podcast worth listening to.

Updated review. Great Pod, but WoTC has shown it’s true self.

Friendly and heartwarming podcast. Great to stay in the loop and gain awareness of interesting D&D (3rd party) creators.

Below is the original review in response to WoTC and their (recent) original F-up.
Great podcast, but with the recent Wizards fiasco with the OSL I have to rate 1 star for now. The podcast brings in creators and gives them a platform. How can they stand on that platform if WoTC crushes creators with its new OSL. They only seem to care about the bottom line, like any big business. Saddens my heart.

So much knowledge!

I have been playing D&D for less than a year now, and I am ready to DM because of this show and it’s excellent hosts. They are fun and full of knowledge. Furthermore, this show is unique and essential. I do not have time to listen to dozens of 3-4 hour episodes of someone else’s game, and I don’t want to hear people whine and moan about what they think is wrong with the game. I love that they are enthusiastic about the game, help make the game, and play the game in short, 5 minute segments. All of the guests are also knowledgeable fans. I love that there is no negativity in this podcast. Please never change! This is the only podcast I listen to beginning to end, every week!
