Top 3 Favorite D&D Podcasts

My top 3 D&D Podcasts:
Critical Role
The Adventure Zone
Side Character Quest

Ty is phenomenal as a host and DM. The stories are always original; a perfect blend of stand-alone and over-arching that means you can start anywhere, but listening to everything has huge benefits too. Guests are all A+ and the energy is comfortable and fun. It’s like playing D&D with your friends, just the way D&D should be! Makes me want to play too! Imaginative, unique, exciting, and engaging. Give this show one arc and you’ll see exactly what I mean. Highly suggested.

Really fun dnd duets

I’m working my way through the back catalogue right now, but just wanted to say I’m enjoying this podcast! I’m trying to DM for my husband and design a solo campaign, but it’s difficult to find good duet ideas. I appreciate this podcast filling that whole in my nerd life. Keep up the great work!

One on One D&D with a great DM

These stories of individual characters are enchanting. We get a full story of one character and explore little pieces of a world. DIfferent kind of story telling that really helps you get to know an individual. The DM is great at pulling the characters out to their best potential.
