    Welcome to Dice in Mind, a weekly podcast in which we explore the meaning of life through the lens of RPGs! In each episode, we will consider everyday stuff like science, religion, philosophy, and economics…through the lens of a specific roleplaying game and its dice mechanic.

A Little Bit of Home

Thanks so much for making something fun and exciting! It’s been so nice to hear voices that entertained me for so long in Philly; and it’s awesome to hear new voices! Y’all have great friends and special guests.
Doh, Jake, and Keip are national treasures, (Treasures of Edennia of course) and I’m starting to suspect that the rest of the band is, too.
Love Meredith

Full songs!!!

Been playing D&D for a while, but I never really understood the bard till now. Prior to this podcast, I had never listened to a full song before. I’ve listened to nothing but commercial music, 30 second itunes previews and an extensive collection of Hit Clips for my entire life. Thanks to this show I’ve heard not one, but multiple full songs per episode! Mind blown. Can’t wait for the live show.
