Worth the Listen

To be honest the begining of episode 116 completly lost me. I wasn't sure what it was about and almost forgot who where in it. Once that was over though the personalities and their abilities to jump off each other for etertainment was astounding. It was almost like learning something while listening to a sitcom. Absolutely worth every second and they do a phenominal job relating their topic to external references and showing how else it could help you grow as a roleplayer.

An entertaining bunch of gamers with some pretty great ideas on how each player at the table can get their time to shine. My time listening was certainly well spent.
