nice way to catch up when you can

I do recommend watching them on YouTube but this is a nice alternative when you cant. that being said the quality is less with the dead spots.

In my head?

Episode 0 was good, but all the rest have no audio at all. I'm sure it's a technical glitch, but it's a big one

Great podcast let down by admin

absolutely great podcast, voice acting is great as expected. the story telling and anticipation is shared with the characters. let down by the episode ordering on audible.

DnD for everyone who loves the story

Can DnD be for everyone? Well, this bunch of talented but nerdy voice actors are doing just that. Are you looking for some comedy? It gives me a laugh every episode without fail. Are you looking for a fantasy story with more depth than "Orc bad, we kill!" - this campaign has more depth and intreague, which subverts the usual fantasy tropes. Want some escapism that can keep you company through hours of long drives, hikes, or housework.

The group really grows over time. And yes, audible has their episodes out of order, but the "packaging" of these episodes should not have earned this podcast fewer stars as it has in other reviews. If you're looking where to start, the first campaign (Vox Machina) is good; but even more spectacular is campaign two (The Mighty Nein) - so if you're not needing even more hours of entertainment, I'd start there). I hope they will soon add the third campaign (and future campaigns) to audible as well.
