John Miserable. ,

I love hearing about the RPG Deep Cuts.

Love this show. There are a ton of RPG podcasts out there and that said it’s so refreshing to find one that doesn’t just focus on the hits. I love that it’s a deeper dive into the realm of RPGs, with a little slice of what was going on in the world at the time of their release.
