    A supposed threat turns out to be rather amicable. The hunters follow a lead to the local dump, where animals have been acting... rather out of the ordinary.

Boston Gabe ,

I like it.

My favorite kind of podcast is some friends just hanging out and kicking it. If they are also playing a TTRPG, that’s just more fun. I like it. I love it. I want more of it.

IrishNiteWraith ,

Dang. Goddammit. DANG.

I love this show so much. Everyone’s performance is a delight, and the worldbuilding is superb. Oh, and it’s hilarious. Did I mention that this show is hilarious?

Do yourself a favor and give these four a listen! Please! We need more podcasts like this in our lives!

Zeorox ,

Wish I could give it more stars

This podcast is my first experience with any TTRPG, and I love it. The cast makes me laugh out loud at least once an episode and I’ve really fallen in love with the characters. As a Georgia native, I love the southern setting. It feels really distinct and alive. Shrimp and Crits has Top notch story telling and audio editing, I couldn’t recommend it more.
