    TOAFN Returns on Jan. 30!

    We are thrilled to announce that THE ONCE AND FUTURE NERD is returning on January 30, 2022!







    A few other important scheduling notes:







    * We are switching to a monthly release schedule. Going forward, episodes will be released on the last Sunday of every month.* One upside of that change is that we expect to release new episodes consistently for at least the remainder of 2022 and hopefully beyond.* In line with this change, we're switching our Patreon account to bill monthly, and also simplifying our reward tiers. You can find out all the details of that, or become a Patron at Patreon.com/onceandfuturenerd.* Whether you already support us on Patreon or plan to start, make sure to select a reward tier before Jan 30, or Patreon will not send you your rewards!!* All of Book One is now also available on our YouTube channel. We'll also be posting a chapter of Book 2 on Wednesdays and Sundays leading up to the premiere of Book 2 Chapter 7. If you want to re-listen before the new episode and talk to other fans, you can post on social media using #TOAFNReRead















    The full transcript of this conversation can be found here.







    Thank you for your patience and continued support! We'll see you on January 30th!!

THE best story podcast ever

If you liked the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon, LOTR, GoT or even are just a rpg player you’ll love this. The writing is amazing and equally is the voice acting. I hope this goes on for years!
