1. A New Critter Has Appeared! - Started listening to campaign of the podcast this year without any prior dnd experience and I LOVE IT! I just made it to the most recent episode of and am at the point where I have to wait for the rest of the story! (I did order myself the Pate plush to celebrate though!) I will absolutely go back and catch up on all the other campaigns! There isn’t enough words to describe how happy this show has made me. The entire cast is so funny and genuine, and I can’t count the number of times I’ve cried and laughed. The storyline keeps me guessing and the characters are so endearing, I just really want to hug them all. So thank you for sharing your stories with us and keep doing what you love!
2. Great way to stay in Exandria for people unable to stay up at watch the stream - I’m so thankful that the stream is available in podcast form. Work hours, kids schedules, and a love of sleeping makes it impossible for me to watch the stream live. You lose the battle maps of course, but that’s okay, the incredible cast makes the “theater of the mind” experience very fulfilling.
3. I wasn’t prepared - I wasn’t ready to be like pissing myself laughing! All amazing people, players and teammates! The characters are so full of life and the em is god tier, I’m a description freak and I have vivid images in my head of everything happening in campaign . IM LIVING FOR THIS! My nerd heart is going crazy! LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!!
4. Awesome minus the ads - I have been a huge fan for years. But the latest episode has multiple ads during the show, not just at the start, during the break, and at the end. I even got an ad fully in Spanish. I understand that these fine folks need to generate revenue to cover the cost of producing this fantastic content, but this goes too far. It’s too annoying. I’ll have to dock a star in my rating if it continues.
5. Cut-in ads make for a frustrating listening experience. - As of the latest episode they have added cut-in audio ads in the middle of the story. I don’t mind the ads at the beginning or the end, or when they go on break, or Sam’s ever amusing ad skits. But these new ones just make it frustrating to listen to.
6. Bingeing Critical Role helped me through the pandemic - I began with the second season and fell in love with all the characters. I found going back to the early episodes of the first season difficult but definitely worth it as the story progressed and the characters developed. The third season is fantastic.
7. A Return to a favorited game - Being a fan of fantasy and gaming for majority of my life. I found this podcast after viewing Vox Machina on Amazon and realized that this was a group of amazing voice actors it a campaign which rekindled the love of dnd in my soul. Currently listening to the mighty nien and enjoying the craziness of the groups and growth of dnd e. Cannot wait to listen to more. Keep up with the amazing work
8. Calamity - I’m a new listener, just randomly decided to give them a listen after watching Vox Machina. I picked up on C, I plan on going back and listening to the others after, but what really hooked me was the calamity miniseries they did. I thoroughly love the way they have been telling the story if C but the change in tone and atmosphere was just superb. The players were great and the GM was incredible. I would find myself on the edge of my seat in anticipation for narratives and the combat sequence. I would love more of that but having a definitive ending is what sold it for me.
Voice actor Matthew Mercer leads a group of fellow voice actors on epic Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. These familiar voices bring the audience into the full experience of D&D, allowing imaginations to soar as the characters embark on adventures. This is Critical Role!
Release date: 2022-01-13
1. Natural ! - Matt Mercer, you have critically succeeded at impressing me!
The podcast itself is quite amazing, and the only issues I have encountered so far were partially corrupted audio files on Episode . If these could be replaced, that would be great!
Lovely podcast, has had a CRITICAL ROLE in my own D&D experiences.
2. Some of y’all are idiots - A few things before my actual review: . This podcast is NOT “stolen”. It is their original podcast channel from when they were with Geek And Sundry. . Episodes - of season one are easily found if you just search “Critical Role Season ” in the search section. . Every episode from C E onward to now is in the other Critical Role channel. That being said, Critical Role is one of the better D&D podcasts out there. Maybe it’s just that it’s the first one I listened to and it’s the one that got me into D&D, but it’s still my personal favorite. Audio wasn’t great at the very beginning of C, but stick it out. It’s worth it. Trust me. Currently relistening to it from episode onward.
3. Hard to understand - Who knows if the story is good, the sound quality is horrible. Can’t hear half of what’s being said due to background noise and PCs talking over one another. Listened for about minutes, never again unless someone says it gets better. Try Reckless Attack, sound is great, story is fun and unpredictable and the dm and PCs are having a lot of fun
4. People Are Dumb - I don’t understand how people really think that this podcast is stolen. Geek and Sundry were the original producers but they switched to producing their own shows. This is an amazing podcast that people here worked hard to help produce. Be nice, and do your research before making a review
5. Great for filling time…also it’s not stolen. - These folks tell a fun story, and are engaging to listen to. If you like or love D&D, if you enjoy a well-produced story, or if you just have long travel stretches that you want to fill with more than talk-radio/music - here’s a fun alternative. Also, for all the commenters saying this is stolen audio, it’s really not. When CR started, they were a group playing a different TTRPG privately and were approached by Geek&Sundry to produce a D&D twitch stream. So this crew changed from the Pathfinder system to e and this channel was started to give an audio format to the Twitch streams. Part way into C, they moved it to a different channel because they officially split from Geek&Sundry and became their own entity. That’s it, that is why there are two channels and why some live here and some there. G&S retains the rights to these episodes.
6. I’m sorry but I have to - I know this is stolen from them but on their actual podcast I can’t find anything past Season Episode . I might just not be looking far enough but that’s where I can’t scroll any further down so I gotta use this. Plus this is organized much nicer, I’m sorry but it is lol
7. Poor execution of podcast - This is a great show but now I can’t access any of the episodes so I can’t continue listening to it. Trying to listen to the episodes through critical roles website also doesn’t work as the episodes wont even play when you click on them. The show itself is five stars but it’s execution through apple podcasts and other auditory only mediums is abysmal. Watch the show through YouTube and don’t give podcasts your time or energy.
8. The very best D&D podcast. Gripping Storytelling! - This podcast has become my favorite, not only has it ignited a love for D&D but a love for the characters and storytelling. Push passed the first few episodes (audio quality is a bit rough) I promise you it’s worth it! This podcast is good enough to stand alone just for the D&D game play or as an audio experience for those in it just for the story. I’ve now completed all of campaign and in just a few short months. Give it a go, you’ll be hooked like me. Cannot recommend Critical Role enough, this podcast sets the bar for all other D&D podcasts out there! Thank you for the hundreds of hours of phenomenal content!
A D&D podcast from Rooster Teeth! Our brave adventurers have answered the call...to be interns for the super hero group, the Infinights! Little do they know that the Infinights are in danger and our hapless interns may be their only hope for salvation. Can the interns save the Infinights AND master a triple shot vanilla almond latte with extra foam?

1. Thank you! - I’m in love with the quality of the show. I’ve never experienced anything like this in my life. I can honestly recommend this to absolutely anyone and everyone. It was a joy to binge this show and I was lucky enough to have the VERY last episode (bonus) come out as I was finally getting caught up. I’m excited to switch over to waiting for my show every week now that we are on a new tale. The cast are easy to like and their friendships and chemistry come out so well. Micah’s story telling is PHENOMENAL. This is so on the fly and yet so very very detailed and meaningful. I legit got emotional for several parts of this in my car like a complete nut. Gus is perfect for DM; perfect balance of knowledge and leniency, role play and tagging in on jokes. Love to the Stinky crew and looking forward to the next adventure! Thank you for the laughs, thanks for the distraction, thanks for the lore, thanks for fleshing out an entirely new world I could escape into when doing chores or driving in my car, Thank you.
2. My favorite podcast!! - I listen to a variety of podcasts and this is by far the most entertaining and my favorite overall. This show is road trip gold. The production and writing of the show is fantastic (shout out to Mika and Ben)!! The chemistry of the team is great, making for tons of laughs and Gus does an amazing job as DM!! Hope this show doesn’t end anytime soon, I’m in it for the long haul!!
3. Love it! - Recently came across a clip of one of their puppet shows from a scene in this show. I enjoyed it so I found out it was a podcast and started listening to it. I’ve been using it to hype myself up for the work day, and to decompress on my way home from work. It’s a really fun podcast and a great mood booster.
4. This podcast is now my happy place. - I will frame my review by saying that I have never written a review for a podcast in my life. Having said that, this is arguably, my favorite podcast I have ever listened to. The quick banter and D&D-centric fun of this podcast. It reminds me so much of the adventures my friends and I would have when we would take time to game together. Not only is this a delightful trip down memory lane for some of the most laughter-filled evenings of my life, but the fun story presented in the podcast itself, and the actions of the players has left me in stitches. I have literally laughed out loud at every single episode. Not like “laughing out loud” where we sort of snort through our nose. No. I am literally laughing out loud like an buffoon. Lamentably, this frequently happens while driving or in public venues, so I have received several strange looks as I am doubled over with guffaws. Totally worth the public humiliation. I cannot recommend this podcast strongly enough to anyone who is curious.
5. Easily the most enjoyable D&D podcast I’ve found. Beginner friendly. - This podcast has been my rock and my pillar of support since launch. I listen every week. It’s what I look forward to. The mixing is great. Storytelling is top notch. Characters are hilarious and deep. If you’re still pretty new to D&D start here. What’s even better is how the podcast interacts with its audience. NPCs are named after people who interact on social media. Magic items come from the community too. The sheer number of people who voice characters for this is astounding. I found this podcast more accessible than Critical Role, because the players involved are not super seasoned players, so as the story progresses, you kinda learn the mechanics and everything with them. The DM is kind and understanding. Also if you are already a Rooster Teeth fan this is a treat. But if you don’t know them it’s equally as enjoyable. Great writing, great music and production.
6. I love this podcast - I'm about episodes in, and I have enjoyed it so much. All the party members are funny, and interesting, as well as blending together so well. There's lots of great comedy, but you still get a serious, intriguing story. My favorite character is gum gum! Can't wait to see how the story continues.
7. Aww, great show, bad producer - Welp, I have listened to three awesome episodes. I wish I could listen to more but I will not help Rooster Teeth anymore after learning about it’s abuses today. If y’all, get a different producer, lemme know. I would love to listen to y’all more. Sorry, y’all have to suffer the bad decisions of Rooster Teeth as a company.
8. What a ride! - I’ve never played D&D and am fairly new to RT, but this has become my go to podcast for driving. From the story writing to Gustavo trying to manage insane party actions, it’s a great listen even if you have spend half your car ride listening to the group complaining over wether or not another “Roll for backflip” was needed!
In the spirit of old-school tabletop role-playing games, a collection of five super-nerds engage in an Actual Play podcast of Paizo's Giantslayer Adventure Path. Using the rules of the Pathfinder RPG system, the Glass Cannon interweaves immersive storytelling with irreverent, improvised humor to deliver the experience of what it's really like to sit around a table rolling dice and ball-busting with your best buds. In May of 2022, the original adventure came to an end and a new adventure began wi...

1. Amazing stories, fun friends - I learned about this podcast years after it debuted, in the middle of this pandemic. Their stories, friendship, and care for their audience drew me in instantly. I binged all years joyfully laughing out loud as my family stared at me strangely. It is an awesome example of pathfinder, live play, and just good fun!
2. One of the best table top role playing groups in the world right now. - These people are hilarious. If you love witty improvisation, snappy dialogue, great chemistry, and snarky east-coast style humor then you can’t do any better than this. I’ve spent many happy hours listening to these wackos pinball around a dizzyingly wide variety of role-play scenarios while I clean, cook, and clear those cursed logging missions in Snowrunner. Highly recommended.
3. What I’ve Been Missing - So, I’m late to the scene. Like… Very late. I’m in my thirties and discovered Tabletop RPG about - years ago. I avoided tabletop in general, board games, RPGs, and anything that was too nerdy. Not cause I thought I was too cool, cause I’m not and I wasn’t. I played MTG, Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh, and played Video Games. D&D just seemed so old and pencil, paper, and cliché. People made fun of it and no one in my nerd group even considered it. My sister-in-law asked us to play e one day and I fell in love with it! The freedom of e wasn’t for me and I wanted something crunchier. Enter Pathfinder e and very soon after e when it released. I’ve been hooked ever since and yet, I wanted a vision of what I crafted in my head as a perfect group. Serious RP with a splash of comedy, describe your action, act out your roll, and a group of players into the AP or Homebrew. However, it’s all jokes, memes, boring RP, and green text garbage. Occasionally I’d get a group that ticked a few boxes, but never all of them. There was always a joke-player who wanted to build Kermit, a Grog, Horny Bard, or Edgy Thief. Not saying those are always bad or don’t have their place, but when every game and multiple players just wanna kill the shopkeeper, bang the dragon, or check out after combat ends. It’s depressing. I’ve never been a podcast guy, even before tabletop. I didn’t watch Twitch or listen to podcasts. Listening to someone else have fun didn’t make sense. A friend of mine I knew outside of Tabletop had joined my group of players and got me into Glass Cannon. I’ve been listening for a week or two, I’m currently on episode of Giant Slayers and I’m hooked. This is what I’ve been missing!!! I’ve been hunting for THIS in my groups. The level of serious RP, detailed GMing, splash of comedy, explanation of rules, and using the crunchy system I love! It’s perfect. I’m gonna finish this and the next and the next and get caught up! Maybe when y’all start your next new campaign I’ll tune into twitch. However, stars out of stars. Thank you for reigniting my flames for the hunt of THIS! In finding this in a group for myself. Thank you.
4. Pick this one - I've listened to a LOT of ttrpg actual play podcasts, but this is the only one I've stuck with for several years. The crew is just outstanding. I was worried when they started to expand the cast, but every addition has been phenomenal. If you're looking for your next addiction, pick this one. And it's a perfect time to join they're patreon if you want the additional content as they've just started a new campaign in the Pathfinder world. And if Pathfinder isn't your jam they have a bunch of other system one shots or short series. You won't regret it
5. Gaming fun - I’m an old lady gamer— been doing this for years. This is the first actual play podcast that’s kept my attention. Excellent sound and music and very fun banter among friends. I came to this (very) late and just finished Giant Slayer. Some good role play and character development although Books - were kind of a grind. I laughed, cried, fell asleep, and stayed awake to this. I’m sorry to have ended this story and interested to see how GCN has grown. Thank you for sharing these stories! I highly recommend this to folks with an interest in ttrpgs and stories.
6. The Greatest RPG Saga EVER - This original run of Giantslayer by the GCN is a saga told over the course of years or so of game play, and is THE QUINTESSENTIAL RPG campaign to listen to. There is nothing out there that even comes close to the GCP. When you finish all episodes, check out A&A, Strange Aeons, and all of the other shows in the GCN for the best gaming content PERIOD.
7. Best RPG podcast out there! - This podcast is unbelievably good! Go on this journey, you will not regret it. The Glasscannon Podcast is the best actual play RPG podcast out there. You will fall in love with the characters, the drama, and the banter. There is truly nothing better than Troy, Joe, Matthew, Skid, and Grant going on an adventure.
8. Favorite podcast and TTRPG crew of all time! - These guys create the best TTRPG content on the market. This story in particular has stuck with me and has prompted multiple re-listens at this point. So many fantastic roleplaying moments over the years. Also Skid’s roleplaying has inspired me to step up my game at my own tables. Truly some inspired work, both in terms of humor and serious moments.
A weekly podcast dedicated to improving your play at Magic: The Gathering with an emphasis on Limited play.
Release date: 2023-03-16
1. Not a great show for beginners - While the hosts go into extreme depth about the cards, a lot of knowledge is assumed by the listener. The hosts will often explain a new card or mechanic by referring to an older card or mechanic that is irrelevant to the discussion at hand, because it does not exist in the current format. They will often say things like ‘ new card have a basically just Gob de Guck from the Shlorp expansion except it doesn’t Jib Jab’ and give no context about any of the gibberish they just spouted. We get it, you’ve been playing magic for a long time and know the names of a lot of cards. The name-dropping isn’t helpful, especially to new players. This show require years of experience playing magic to really understand.
2. A must listen - I’ve been listing to Marshall since I got back into Magic almost years ago. This show is not just about Magic, it’s about life and sometimes food! You don’t have to listen for long before Marshall and LSV are like close friends! I couldn’t imagine my week with out a new episode of LR!!!!!
3. Good show bad sponsor - Limited resources is great and it would easily be my favorite mtg podcast if it wasn’t for their sponsorship from FTX. Cryptocurrency is not the future and it is pretty obvious that it’s a scam and I understand that they have to make money but I can’t rate them higher than this while they’re sponsored by a scam.
4. Still the best - After a hiatus, I jumped into arena with a strict free to play mentality. I was glad to see LR still rocking and the host’s insights are invaluable. I listen on the commute to/from work then apply what I’ve learned in the evenings. I was surprised, and quite frankly confused, to see some recent negative reviews. There are many podcasts I listen to and honestly LR has the least intrusive ad/sponsorship mentions of all of them. I routinely skip through - minutes of ad content in others, while Marshal just briefly mentions LR’s at the beginning of the show. If LR got a good sponsorship deal and that lets them keep the lights on while providing top notch FREE content…then why would that particular sponsor bother someone enough to leave a one star review?
5. FTX sponsorship - Luis and Marshal are in bed with this crypto NFT company and I can’t support it. NFTs are bad for the environment, ethically dubious, and not something I want mixed with my entertainment. Can’t support a product that’s promoting a company involved in their proliferation. Unsubscribing. Find a better sponsor.
6. Unsubscribing - Just can’t stand the pyramid scheme sponsor anymore. First it was the “buy a share of a black lotus!” scam and now it’s a crypto scam. The show used to be “genius” but it’s now “grifter”. Given that Storybook Brawl also went crypto scam today, I guess I’m not only done with the show but with LSV as well.
7. Top Notch! - This show is a must for anyone that is aspiring to be better at Limited. Marshal and LSV have great chemistry. The information is thorough, current and easy to listen to! We’re all very fortunate to have LR as a resource. Even when I’m not excited about a particular limited format I still look forward to each and every episode! Enjoy!
8. Questionable Sponsor - The decision to support FTX is extremely questionable especially after Marshall has been outspoken against supporting poor sponsorships in the past. I thought this was a fad but their continued sponsorship of a terrible pyramid scheme has lead me to question their integrity on the subject matter they review. I have found better alternative limited-focused podcasts to follow
The Magic Story Podcast is a podcast dedicated to the lore of Magic: The Gathering and its Multiverse.

1. Goodbye Casuals - I LOVED this podcast when I first found it and prefer their earlier content. I feel the Command Zone is now focused on selling staples and pushing Commander players into more competitive decks, and, in turn, changing the casual player base. My play group splintered as some followed the Command Zone propelled “arms race,” while others missed the casual play style where a card doesn’t cost more than someone’s entire deck. I hope the Command Zone comes correct and, at least, slow down pimping every new set and do some content on the game (they used to).
2. I’ve become better - This podcast has helped me review sets which is hard for me cause I’m child. People say that tcz is targeting newer players which it is, but you are good enough to understand things on ur own. And even then, you can still learn things, and the deck upgrades are not to appealing to a child but are good for judgement on my decks. Anyway, go to hl haters this pod is great. stars all the way
3. Overrated - This show is WoTC’s lapdog/mouthpiece for the Commander format. Unerringly oriented towards new players, overly commercialized, and leaning on celebrity (MtG and actual); while this show does have real content it is a part of Magic’s race to the bottom. Notice they don’t significantly comment on WoTC/Hasbro’s disingenuous management of the game or it’s player base. We are all treated as rubes and marks and Command Zone is a part of that…from - minute intros full of cheesy singing and advertisements (for the channel, sponsors, & snowflake millennials who are suckers enough to give money to these guys for free content); to the mid-roll break for sponsors & patreon appeals…. This show touts it’s overhead costs in staff and production to make ‘quality’ content, but it actually appears to be an attempt to satisfy Josh Lee Kwai ego with his need for an ‘assistant’ and to low-key push his Magic philosophy on others… all while providing ‘fame’ and access he did not achieve in Hollywood as a no-name movie trailer production guy. Oh and the actual content doesn’t have any useful insights or strategies. It’s all set reviews & new commander analysis these days. The same thing that a quick perusal on EDHrec & a familiarity with the game can give you without someone selling you deck sleeves, hair-loss treatment, ear buds, or online therapy. Sheesh - talk about playing into the mom’s basement-dwelling, neck-beard stereotype…but if the shoe fits? Maybe the part aimed at Mr. Kwai is a bit personal & ad hominem, but it doesn’t mean it’s not true. What they make is lowest common denominator ‘quality’ content for the masses. It has excellent self-production standards for an outfit on YouTube, but you don’t need assistants & staff to provide real, insightful, and unbiased content - which you ABSOLUTELY do not get here. Go ahead and try and episode or two - it may be something you like, but just know the biased market mouthpiece you are subscribing to. Caveat Emptor.
4. Review - I usually don’t do these but I’ve been a viewer for so long that anything I can do to benefit the command zone I’m happy to do. I’ve listened/watched probably over episodes and all the game knights. I’ve listened to a lot of their earlier episodes and it was really interesting and cool to see them grow as creators to who they are today, one of the top Edh channels and Mtg channels in general. They have spread and given so much entertainment and joy for so many people and I have to applaud them for doing such a great job. Also, side rant, in the reviews of the podcasts the ones that aren’t stars are ones that just complain about the Ads that they have to use to keep the channel going and growing. First off, YouTube and this channel is free, your not spending any money to experience this entertainment and if you really hate the ads then just sign up for there ad free tier on patron and stop complaining. With the big sketches and skits they are doing before game knights and game knights in general these guys need incredible amounts of funding I presume to keep it going (not to mention all the staff they have recently hired in the coming years). So sure they have had more ads but it’s what they need to do to stay alive. Secondly, people complain about no deck techs and honestly I understand why they don’t do it anymore. With EDHREC and all other channels doing deck techs basically, deck techs are kinda stale and get boring after a while. Watching someone tell me cards that are good in a deck just seems like something people wouldn’t be that interested in. Finally, the Command Zone is not an “ad” for Wotc. In many of there episodes that have criticized them. The only funding they get from Wotc is with game knights. Thanks for everything Command Zone
- Rodney from Alaska,
5. This is the best - This is the best podcast, I highly recommend this to anyone wishing to get on to commander I’ve been playing for a while and they have made everything clear that was obscured to me they ( my best friends) have given me something that will include me, makes me feel included and smart as I am bullied for my size as a fourteen almost fifteen year old boy who is only five foot and a half an inch. I am really grateful to their men and women that make this show possible. “Thank you so much for everything!!!!!!!!!”
6. Podcast Used to be Good - A year or so ago I would’ve happily recommended this podcast for anyone interested in getting into Commander. Unfortunately that is no longer the case. From my perspective the creators are suffering from burnout, are spread too thin, and the podcast is suffering because of it. They’re clearly devoting a lot of time and resources to their gameplay shows Game Knights and Extra Turns, and you can neatly trace an inverse relationship between the shows and the podcast: as the production value and production schedule of the gameplay shows have increased the podcast quality has decreased. The podcast is basically just set reviews and upgrade guides for preconstructed decks. They used to regularly provide interesting strategy content, like drawing connections from Sun Tzu and how to apply them to Commander. Novel stuff! The podcast no longer has a unique voice or point of view. And even if set reviews are of interest to you the evaluation they provide isn’t that interesting, they talk for minutes on end about cards only to say “don’t play this card,” and often recommend the same cards, like Vedalken Orrery or Expropriate, over and over again.
7. Very Helpful for Newer Players - I’ve found it extremely helpful for someone returning to magic and new to EDH. I’ve learned about new cards, how to play politics, and how to help my friends get into EDH. The ads are fun, everyone on the team has fun, and they come out consistently with new content with the constant barrage of products. I hope they can avoid burnout. GREAT LISTEN!!!
8. Sure their in it for the money, but... - Yes. They are doing it for the money, or at least that’s a big factor, and yes, the ads are a lot. But... these are people. They need income. They aren’t bajilionairs who only do things because they want to. They are two guys, who really like Magic: The Gathering. They do their best to make a living out of it, and it makes sense that sometimes their just not in the mood, but they have to do it anyways because it’s their job. Ads make money, and so long as behind those ads there is quality content, being made by people who OVERALL like what their doing, I don’t have a problem. Go Jimmy and Josh

Get together with your trivia team or play solo, at home or on the go, because it's Trivia Time!
Release date: 2023-03-14
1. Good, not great - I enjoy the format and the banter, but the errors in the trivia itself are becoming a problem. In the last weeks, you guys said that Alfred Hitchcock won Oscars when he won no competitive ones; that the Flash is a Marvel superhero when he’s from DC Comics; and that it was Jim Belushi, not John, in Animal House. No trivia game can be perfect, but the mistakes are becoming too common.
2. A reason to look forward to Tuesdays! - I’m so happy I found this trivia podcast a few months back! It is such a blast, despite me only getting three answers correct the whole show :’(
I love it all, from the diverse questions to the friendly banter. I selfishly ask for y’all to keep this going forever. My only complaint is that there is still not enough gay content hahahahaha
3. Master Trivia-Masters Presenting Flawless, Fun, Engaging Puzzles Weekly - We gave Trivia Time a -star review because they deserve it. Each week, they present trivia puzzles on well-researched topics that are interesting, engaging, and presented at a moderate pace. Subject matter can either be related to current-events, pop culture, or based on listener requests. Speaking of the listeners, Rickey and Kelly engage with their audience more than any other podcast crew I’ve heard. They love their listeners and show it by actually mailing out goodies to the “Taters” (as we listeners are lovingly referred to). I could go on but I think you get the point. Trivia Time is a -star podcast, %. Julie and Angel
4. Great questions, but too much filler. - This quiz show does a fantastic job of finding interesting questions and trivia. Even on topics I know nothing of, I find myself enjoying learning about the category topic.
My sole complaint is there are many times they go on tangents when giving answers that can last up to two minutes. This typically - minute podcast could easily be reduced by minutes if they cut a majority of this out. Regardless, still my favorite trivia podcast to listen to. At the end of the day, it’s all about well thought out and interesting trivia questions.
5. Friend of the Suburban - Love the trivia and hosts! The questions are diverse and challenging without being so obscure that it’s not fun. My field tech and I listen to this podcast to stay awake/engaged and make the long drives back from field work go by more quickly. We’re out doing bat research, and would love a bat-themed round sometime!
6. Friends of the Show - My boyfriend Cooper and I (Jack) have listened to you since the beginning of our relationship a little over a year ago. You are our road trip staple and you have been with us in the car from the East Coast all the way to the entire West Coast! Thanks for making us laugh and keeping us awake. -Two Taters
7. Come for the banter, stay for the trivia! - Friends of the show here! Whoever says there’s too much commentary (I’m looking at you, dakoterz) probably needs more love in their life! Some of the connection rounds can really stump you and the hilarious anagrams are always a treat! Great podcast, quality trivia questions, and the ladies are so delightful! Thanks for giving our small fam something to look forward to each week!
8. Road-trip Savers - My brother and I decided to take a cross country trip to visit our parents. There was only so much Stephen King audiobooks and Taylor Swift concerts I could tolerate before I was super bored. I randomly typed in trivia to see if there was anything that could keep my brother and me sane; I found this podcast and wow! It was so much fun to play along and test our knowledge. Before I knew it our hour road trip was over because the time passed so fast! Thank you!
The world's best board game review show.
Release date: 2023-03-17
1. Delightful - There are many other podcasts with the same goals as this one, and many do it well. Why did I feel compelled to come write a review for this already very successful podcast instead of helping out someone smaller? Ava has recently recorded a pair of innovative and completely unexpected “SoloCasts,” and I was completely delighted. I didn’t know I wanted to hear about why people play boardgames alone, and I didn’t know I wanted to hear low key ASMR boardgame reviews. Thank you, Ava. You made my day.
2. Best board game group and reviewers in the business - SU&SD are the best, easily. They’re smart, funny, and very great at articulating what makes a game good or bad, though I do wish that they would take some critical takes on board games or the industry as a whole. I understand why they take the extremely approachable stance to board games on their YouTube channel, but this is a board game podcast. Only people who are absolutely in love with board games are going to listen to these podcasts. It would be nice if they took a deeper dive. Even if they don’t take a deeper dive into the industry, SU&SD are just phenomenal people. I want to be friends with Matt, I want to play board games and RPGs with Quinn’s, I want to hang out with Tom and Ava. They’re just genuine, fun, and interesting people who are just simply amazing at reviewing games and pinpointing exactly why games are good or bad.
3. Cozy Corner needs to become a regular entry - Hey I have been listening to the podcast for years and I have always enjoyed it but I had to leave a comment after I listened to Ava’s cozy corner. It was such a pleasant change up and I really enjoyed the presentation. Please let’s see more creative entries like this. Lots of love for the whole team. Thanks for the positive vibes : )
4. Need to stop non-gaming woke nonsense - Dropped. They have moved so far beyond games that I think they need to get into general journalism and get real jobs. They use games to push a woke agenda. They virtue signal so badly that they can’t see their own hypocrisy in it. This is NOT what I want in game coverage.
5. Wonderful companion to their YouTube channel - The amount of thought put into their reviews is incredible and they still have energy to be very funny and even thought provoking when considering topics like the impact of the hobby on the environment, the messiness of history in a game’s theme and the business aspect of board gaming. Always entertaining and a really great companion to their YouTube channel that I didn’t think could compete given that it’s only audio. This podcast has become the “fix” that I genuinely look forward to instead of just something that holds me over until the next video review. I started listening towards the end of last year and have just about made it through the entire catalogue. It’s been a pleasure to see how the show has evolved and the new members are welcome additions to another real strength of the show - the chemistry between all the reviewers. This is a show that keeps bringing me a lot of joy and gets me excited about gaming with friends. I’ve listened to a lot of great podcasts but this is the one that compelled me to write my first review. Highly recommended for people who like games and want something unique, well produced and fun.
6. Entertaining board game podcast - A great in depth, entertaining podcast on a wide variety of board games. Some light, some heavy, mostly good, sometimes bad. The emphasis is on games that are worth your time, described by smart British folk who have a knack for making the movement of bits sound fun.
7. So much fun - I love listening to this podcast. I went through withdrawals during Christmas while they took a much needed break. They are funny, informative and they give honest opinions about games and why they did or did not like it. The latest episode with Rodney had a great point, what I find fun and what you find fun are totally different things. So these are simply their opinion which I respect. I won’t always agree but that’s the best part of games … there are tons of them. Pick another. But no matter what it is always entertaining listening to SUSD talk about my favorite hobby.
8. Change of tone - SUSD was one of my main entry points into the hobby and had been my favorite boardgame content for years but the light hearted tone with hilarious bits seems to taken a back seat to the focus on talks of who can be the most offended by a game this week. While the boardgame discussion is still good and the new podcast members have been a welcome addition the constant negative focus isn’t what I want from my hobby podcasts.
Triviality is a weekly pub trivia-style game show where a lack of seriousness meets a little bit of knowledge. Join our hosts every Tuesday to play along with our fast-paced game, enjoy monthly bonus episodes and mini-tournaments or simply enjoy the clash of intellect and personalities. This is TRIVIALITY. Hosted by: Ken, Matt, Neal, and Jeff.
Release date: 2023-03-24
1. The Cream of the Crop! - Do you like joviality, playfulness, silliness, and tidbits of knowledge about our world? Well then you sound like a lovely person who might enjoy getting to meet Ken, Matt, Neil, and Jeff through their trivia show. I just discovered them near the beginning of this year, and I’m having a blast going through their extensive back catalogue of games and playing and laughing along. Chuckle along every time Macho Man pipes in, be inspired to be braver during their games of death (not actual death), test your knowledge and cleverness, and learn a bit more than you expected to about hockey, Aussie rules football, and Indy music. And if you join the community, you could host or challenge and maybe one day become: The Cream of the Crop!
2. Always a pleasure - I love the personalities and the lack of seriousness. I get to listen commercial free and support the content I love through Patreon. It’s totally worth it. It’s also not as hard to add to my feed as Neal made it sound. Yay technology! I listened to the whole backlog and found that I couldn’t get enough so I want to do my part to be sure the future of the show is secure.
3. Best trivia podcast..by a lot - There are some pretty decent trivia podcasts out there, but once I found these guys they just blew them out of the water. They’re all clearly best friends who use this podcast as an excuse to hang out with one another. They’re warm, inviting, not overly competitive, and somehow make every trivia episode unique. Seriously, do yourself a favor and play an episode.
4. Low stakes accessible fun - I’ve listened to a variety of trivia podcasts but none I’ve listened to are as fun and accessible as this one. The guys do a great job of getting people involved and having fun regardless of skill or financial backing. Grateful to have found this podcast which I look forward to every week.
5. Addictive, but in a good way - Brandi from “Let’s Go To Court” recommended the podcast and I have been hooked. I recently went a road trip with my six year old, she didn’t want to wear headphones, so I couldn’t listen to the dark stuff I usually like. It was a little sooner than I would’ve liked for her to know that is a cover, but we both were entertained for two hour trips.
6. Favorite trivia podcast!! - I found this podcast a couple of weeks ago and have been listening through the backlog non-stop since. There’s a good mix of question topics, the hosts are laid back and funny, and it’s casual enough that it makes me feel like I’m back at my own bar trivia nights. I started listening because covid has paused my own team’s trivia nights and this has been a welcome substitution. Thanks for the show!!
7. Great Trivia Podcast without all the banter - Started listening to Trivia podcasts while driving around getting my small children to nap during the pandemic mess. Found you guys when listening to another trivia themed podcast. Appreciate your variety of topics but especially all the pop culture/movie stuff, this is more of my area. Also appreciate that you banter but it doesn't take up the majority of the show and that your knowledge doesn't come across as arrogant . Thanks for what you do!
8. The perfect fit in my rotation - This podcast provides me with a much needed niche. Due to the pandemic I couldn’t do bar/pub trivia. I’ve always loved going and participating while learning new facts when I get the questions wrong. This weekly podcast is. Perfect filler for that. The hosts are witty and fun making it feel like you can play along and it’s OK if you don’t know the answers to the questions. Plus, bringing fans on as guests to either play the game or host the trivia makes it feel fun and fresh each week.
Join Magic: The Gathering Head Designer Mark Rosewater as he shares stories, insights, and more while driving to work. Listen and learn more about how Magic is made!
Release date: 2023-03-17
1. Very good, but not perfect. - If you’re interested in looking under the hood and behind the scenes of Magic: The Gathering, you’re going to enjoy this show. Even if you don’t care about Magic, this is a great resource for the aspiring game designer. I still love the show, but Mark did something uncharacteristic in that annoyed me. He did literally TEN consecutive episodes about Unfinity. I fully accept that I’m not going to interested in every episode topic. But if you fully know that a majority of your audience doesn’t care about a particular set, why would you spend ten episodes in a row on that set? Of all people, Mark is the last person I would expect to alienate his audience that way.
2. How many times can Mark say the exact same thing in a row? - This entire podcast is basically just Maro repeating himself, making the same points over and over again. The podcast would definitely benefit from more structure, because Mark’s ad libbing skills aren’t the best. But if you’re looking to learn about MTG history and game design, this the podcast for you.
3. Not driving to work - I really like your normal content more than the interviews. I like some of the interviews but other interviews I just don’t listen to. I like your old content more and the new black green episode is great. I just wanted to voice my opinion. This show is amazing though and I will always love it no matter where it goes
4. Used to be a great cast, except for the gendered pronouns - I used to love listening to Mark pontificate about the history of magic. However, the continual use of the “he” pronoun and the “goodbye guys” at the end of the cast threaten to make it almost unlistenable in the present historical context and with our current political and social climate. Please please start using de-gendered references rather than masculine ones!! Also, I find it kind of sad: Though many previous episodes used to focus on the sets and cards that have been released by wizards over the past years, it seems that type of content has basically vaporized in lieu of interviews with other WotC employees over the past few months. If you love Magic: the Gathering, older episodes of this podcast have tons of historical content and opportunities to learn more about magic trivia, it’s creation, management, design and glimpses into the future of the game. I hope the cast finds its way back to that type of content soon.
5. Why the interviews? - I thoroughly enjoy when this podcast is going over the design of the set because I am big into Magic’s design history. When Mark started doing interviews as opposed to the other kinds of episodes he did, I decided that I didn’t want to here Mark networking his way around during the pandemic. He also needs to acknowledge his job and how the new cards were added. If he can’t, then he is provably avoiding the actual game that he helped design. If he can’t face that and tell us what happened, he should be removed from his position because of his denial.
6. Informative, fun, and great for commutes. - I used to listen to this podcast all the time. Problem was, my drive to work was only a few minutes, so I started biking instead. This is great content, there’s rarely an episode I’m just not interested in at all, and learning about the back end of magic is very fun.
7. MaRo is my HeRo - Imagine how much someone must love their job, that even on their drive to work they’re producing content about their work. MaRo’s passion and genuine enthusiasm are impossible to contain, and he always has something to teach to aspiring designers or fans in general. If you’re into game design or just Magic’s history, this podcast is a must
8. Good magic podcast - Great source of history from someone who was there from the beginning. If you want to know how and why they make magic this is the show for you. Great insight into the bigger picture. While there are some amazing episodes here... the content could come out less frequently with a more interesting podcast.

1. Solid Podcast - I started playing D&D last May and was unanimously voted (eternal) DM for my group. In a mad dash to learn everything I could I jumped on this podcast and I haven’t looked back. Some episodes are a bit rocky and I’m occasionally irked by Brian, Will, or their guests (that’s a me problem though, I can be curmudgeonly), but overall I think they do a great job. They always do their research and are great at presenting the information in a way that’s easy to digest. I’m coming to the end of my first campaign tomorrow night and because of this show, it’s sure to be the first of many. Thanks guys, I wouldn’t still be this hooked on the game without your show.
2. Easily one of my favorite TTRPG podcasts. - I’ve been listening to The Dungeoncast on and off for four to five years, this past year, as I’ve been getting back into playing and running ttrpgs, I started binging episodes and Brian and Will have given me so much inspiration and confidence to be able to run games that my players will enjoy and bulls characters that my GMs and fellow players will enjoy.
3. Bye guys - I’ve really enjoyed your podcast the last couple years. Unfortunately you two, like a lot of guys in your age group, are way too butt hurt over things you have exactly ZERO control over. This whole OGL debacle wasn’t great nor a good look for WOTC, but it’s not your company! You own books, you’ve written books, so does a complete turning your back on the creatives at Wizards do anything to better your situation? Absolutely not. None of us can control what a corporation does, and I’m sorry you guys have found a way to monetize your hobby and feel threatened now, but that’s the way reality sometimes works. (Sounds familiar when you put it in perspective, right?). I’m glad I got to get through most of the catalog, but I won’t be subscribing anymore to hear about one page RPG’s and lore I’ll never use. Adios dudes.
4. The Right Approach - This podcast is full of inspirational information. All of the previous content can be functionally used to help play any fantasy TTRPG. I look forward to the new content now that a certain terrible corporate monster has alienated its community. The most recent episode showed that the hosts are intelligent and caring individuals who will continue to help foster growth throughout the TTRPG community.
5. You guys are awesome. - I’ve been listening to this podcast for a few months now. I’m still new to dnd and GM-ing for my party. I like to download episodes relating to topics I would use for a campaign and listening during my commute. I’ve been meaning to make a review for a while now but I’m a little glad I waited. Been waiting for the ogl episode and listened to it as soon as it dropped and make this review immediately after. I’m sad and upset for what wotc/hasbro is doing to the community but also glad that the community has come together to push back. I can’t wait to see what future content and and amazing work will come out from this.
6. Love the show - First off… there is a LOT here so don’t get overwhelmed. As a player I use a lot of this when determining how to play my character. For example, with my Dragonborn Sorcerer I listened to the Dragonborn pods, and the sorcerer pod, and finally the dragon bloodline to get info on the background to help mold a deep character. I got some great ideas for world building with their dm pods about building towns and cities. Ultimately I really recommend even if you’re only picking and choosing the relevant content. It’s been very helpful
7. Helpful & Entertaining for players & GM’s of all levels! - Do you like D&D? Do you enjoy listening to two guys who are as far into the dork forest as you? Well then, the DungeonCast is the can’t miss show for you! Whether you’re new to the game or have been playing for years, I Highly recommend this well produced, fun romp down the D&D rabbit hole! Shout out to Demogorgon!
8. Worth listening to if you play D&D - If you play D&D, especially if you DM, you should listen to the DungeonCast. The hosts are entertaining, and they cover a wide variety of topics from the game, from covering lore on characters, the latest monsters, the older monsters, and classes/subclasses, there is plenty here to enjoy. If you DM this podcast can give you ideas and strategies, if you don’t DM you might want to after listening.

1. Love it, but - Yes, I really do. The players are great, the DM is great, the story is amazing, character, development, combat puzzles, pretty much everything is amazing in this podcast… But, I’m on the episode, where Kim is trying to escape the atlas academy… And Jesus Christ I just want to scream at her, she makes some of the worst decisions I’ve seen a player make in a long time lol as a DM and player I cannot help it, I just scream at my phone.
2. Bar none the best DND podcast - Humes is just a phenomenal DM, he doesn’t bog you down in details the way a certain other DM does, and this allows the listener and player to build the world in their minds while being focused on the narrative and role play. The players are wonderful and very relatable, this is not a group of professionals (whatever that means) but a group of friends and it really feels that way. This may lead to moments of indecisiveness but anyone who has played knows that is part of the game, and Mark is a good DM so he knows when to keep things moving. Can’t recommend it enough. RIP Smeek.
3. Pretty great - This is a pretty awesome show. It took me a little while to get into it because the cast is a little more “normal human” than the other stuff I had been listening to which was my own fault, not that of the cast. The missing star is due to some active choices with some characters and language which I find irksome but not so much that I stopped listening. I do occasionally take a break when the bits that bug me happen consistently, but I always come back around when my tolerance for such things has built reserves back up. End result: I highly recommend. Most listeners are not likely to find the same things irksome that I do. Give them a shot, I think you’ll find it to be a fun show!
4. Worth a Listen - Briefly: An excellent campaign that is saddled with extrodinarily timid players. Mark's campaign was designed on a grand scale and you can appreciate the thought he has put into his universe. Unfortunately, this type of campaign requires players the will occasionally stick out their necks and take a chance. While Mark will give every opportunity for the players to respond in any given scenario there are moments where they faff around so much that he has to let the story proceed and let the consequences of inaction happen. Most of the time the consequences are eventually overcome by the players but they are seriously their own worst enemies. For those of you who would say playing a character who is timid or unsure of their abilities is a valid role-play choice, I completely agree. That said, when four of your five main characters are continually paralyzed with fear it really drags down the campaign. It also make you wonder why after so many challenging encounters no one evolves, or at least gows a slightly thicker skin. In summary, this is a podcast worth following. These moments of timidity can be frustrating but I use them to ask what I would do as a player.
5. This is the best dnd show ever! - High Rollers is the best dnd show I have ever heard. The incredible storytelling and epic fantasy moments are TO DIE FOR. If you are looking for an intricately crafted story where the players and the DM sing in harmony this is your show. The world is so imaginative. The amazing descriptions, depth of lore, and masterfully crafted NPCs make the world of Aerois come to life. Mark’s sudden plot twist and grand reveals keep me at the edge of my seat anytime I listen. The combat scenarios that Mark whips up are a mosaic of stats and character. He plays villains to their own intelligence and goals, something that I am always striving to achieve. The entire group are incredible role players. Chris Trot has a truly wonderful mind. His ability to keep the RP flowing even in the middle of a life and death combat, where most players would be racking their brain on how to max out every mechanic, is truly fantastic. I can not believe that Rhiannon Gower had her first time playing in high rollers. Even from the start I was captivated by the story of a forgotten construct waking up after the destruction of her homeland. She plays better than many dnd vets I know and always brings that sprinkle of color to the already amazing party. Tom Hazel, man what a guy! Quil is one of my over all favorite characters ever. Tom’s humor and on the move thinking always keeps me listening. Aila brings the brawn to the rest of the parties brains and combat prowess and Katie plays her perfectly. Even the short snippets from Aila’s lips are worth a million from the common barbarian’s. The pure depth of Kims characters brings so much joy to my heart. Her complex backstory is something that would make any DM jump up and down in their seat. Her precise note taking would make her a person I would love to have guest on my show. This cast of endearing adventurers and their brilliant DM forge High Rollers into the best podcast I have listened to. stars can’t express the level these guys are on.
6. ,, timelines… only one answer. - When Dr. Strange was analyzing potential futures to discover how to defeat Thanos. He checked ,, timelines (he counted!) and found only one where the result is to his liking… My observation is that Mark sets his players up for these kinds of situations throughout the Aerois podcast. Endless ways to fail. One way to succeed. This is hard mode, the DND equivalent of dark souls. Know that going in because it can be a shock, and frankly hard to listen to at points. But you do want to listen, because Mark is a fantastic DM in so many ways, but truly sets himself apart with his world building. (Endlessly detailed and imaginative.) And you get so frustrated when things go horribly wrong (or exactly to the Thanos’s plan) because you care about the characters and you want them to succeed. The players do a great job of role playing, they play the game very well, and it is clear that they are having a good time. Very much worth a listen.
7. It’s a wild ride - Okay, gosh, this week’s Rosemeadow scene is going to go down in infamy like the cow scene. XD This show is great. The players and DM are all very respectful of each other. The players have a lot of agency and the DM still has them bearing out the consequences, good and bad, of their early levels. Character growth is slow, but the pacing feels realistic, and there are some really beautiful earnest displays of emotion here.
It’s super long and you’ll also find some one-shots and off-campaigns they’ve done here too. Unfortunately, it seems like their previous mega campaign Lightfall is only on Youtube. (If I am wrong, someone please correct me oxo)
8. Uploading needs to change - First off the content is amazing stars no question but the way they have chosen to update the episodes is horrendous star first they split the episodes in half which I have no problem with but then upload first half Monday second on Thursday it’s ridiculous especially when they started the strahd campaign and would upload those in the middle of the half’s from the main campaign

1. Inspiring inspiration - Idk I panicked when it ask for a title. I’ve been listening to BH almost since inception. They are great personalities and have wonderful insights on difficult topics in life and the table top space. Good listens all around!!! And I’m not just saying that seriously have a listen!!
2. What an AMAZING show! - This show had been collecting digital dust in my backlog for several months now. I was looking for something to follow up the first NADDPOD campaign. While an absolutely different show than what I was looking for, this show captivated me in five seconds. They are what many great podcasts strive to be. They pull you in and make you feel like you’re sitting at the table with three very good friends. And like all truly valuable friendships they give you an opportunity to laugh and learn. As an older white-passing guy, who places with a LOT of people of every religion, color, creed, gender, and sexuality I find this to be welcome and warming learning experience to the game we all love and the type of people we all should strive to be! And I get all these warm feelings from the show and I’m ONLY on episode six! XD
3. Phenomenal - Starting with the pilot episode I love how the creators jump into some issues and how to be more inclusive in the D&D community for a lot of people, specifically on the subject of ethnicity and racial traits etc and they truly come from a place of love and I am excited to learn and listen more. Thank you all for creating such a wonderful podcast.
4. BH is great! - This podcast strikes a perfect balance of shenanigans, creativity, education, DEI, and everything that is to be loved about the TTRPG space. Their Outlaws and Obelisks campaign blends horror, sci fantasy, and westerns beautifully. And the wide variety of guests on their main feed content always keeps you entertained.
What are you waiting for? Start listening!
5. Great dnd podcast - Really digging this show. Jeremy Cobb is an amazing DM, who will horrify you one minute with a brutal encounter and then make you fall in love with a sentient camel. The show is a great mix of interviews, practical advice and actual play. I’ve learned so much by listening and, if you like dnd, you should do yourself a favor and download this.
6. Great mix of gameplay and conversations! - I absolutely love the mix of talkshow, guest interviews, and actual play episodes. Hilarious and heartfelt role playing, fantastic relevant topics, thoughtful hosts, fabulous guests, honest conversations—a joy to listen to. Still catching up on the backlog of episodes!! Always entertaining while expanding my view of things.
7. Entertaining and Informative - Being a cisgendered white male, I have had the privilege of being able to ignore the unconscious bias inherent in Dungeons and Dragons. I stumbled on this podcast looking for more Dungeons and Dragons help on improving my DM skills (or lack there of). I was hooked in the first minutes. TBH has shown me the door on working towards a more inclusive game. Now I have to open it.
8. Great actual play! - Found this podcast through NADDPOD, started listening to outlaws and obelisks and have to say that it was an amazing campaign! Jeremy does and amazing job of keeping space time together as well as adapting everyone background stories. Jasper plays Tovo very well, almost too well, there were times that I was like “whyyyyy tovo!!!!” But he won me over being exactly who his character is and for that he has my utmost respect. Budge was played beautifully and I could feel his emotion throughout! I wish Unati had been around longer but I loved her journey to being happy. Hu sur was by far my favorite! I loved the flavor of all the spells she used. Emily was radiant as always and was a great addition to the campaign, she is a D&D kweeen! Over all y’all are amazing and keep doing what y’all are doing! Great job halflings!!!!

1. Best Ska Appreciation Podcast! - Been a long time listener and finally catching up, plus signed up for Patreon. Going through the backlog is a fun trip back in time. Like in the intro of Ep. when Tim says, " is one of the most hellish years that has existed." Can't wait to get to the COVID years! Keep up the good work!
2. Best podcast ever - I started this podcast back in February of and I’ve finally caught up on on both campaigns and can now listen to the live streams. I’ve never played DnD before but this podcast definitely helped kickstart my interest in wanting to play. I will be DMing my first game in a few weeks (April nd). Just one shot though but I hope the game is good enough for the people I’ve asked to play and hopefully they will wanna play more. Stay dicey with them s boooiiiiis and girls
3. Literally the only podcast I’ve ever committed to - Stumbled across this delightful band of adventurers last summer, which is weird because I’d never really listened to a podcast and had literally never played a single game of D&D. Now I’m a baby DM (thanks, Thrifty, for answering my question on Twitter!) for a group of D&D newbies, including my husband (who I introduced to the podcast and who has now bypassed me). Thanks to the Atlanta Falcons for giving us a great shared hobby. I’m only on episode , but I’m looking forward to catching up, joining the Twitch stream, and going to a GeeklyCon where I hope to speak Draconic with Nika — yaaasssss, Queen! Love the whole crew… thanks for making this beautiful thing.
4. Obsessed - Heyo guys I just have to say that I have started listening to you guys at the beginning of the year and I’m on episode now. I listen to you guys while I work my hour shifts and it makes my night go so quickly when I work day weeks. I absolutely love all of you so much. I hope you guys continue to post episodes, I also dread catching up I’m rightfully addicted.
5. came here on a recommendation… - …from the dungeons and daddies subreddit, and i’m so glad i did. love everything, including characters, story, gameplay, dm, banter, shopping episodes, bingeability, pronouns in intro, (very brief) political references to encourage everyone to general be a good person, all the stuff that reminds me of my d&d table. thanks for an amazing show!
6. Here for the laughs - I stumbled upon your podcast about a year ago when I ran out of audible credits. Never listened to a podcast before this so I Didn’t know what to expect. Needless to say you all have had me laughing from the beginning. Just finished episode and am trying to catch up as quickly as possible so that I can start listening to the livestream. Keep up the excellent work!!!
7. Skud Derringer - Found your show and instantly feel in love with all the characters. Slabber all the way. Found y’all about months back and have been listening since. Love when y’all added nika but now I’m on episode and I almost choked on my food when I heard Bechmenn say Skud was from Corpus Christi Texas, as that’s where I’m from and now I can really connect with the show much more. Please keep up the good work and Nika and Bechmenn strong
8. Love love love - Found this podcast randomly and started from episode one. I’m now on and look forward to listening every day, makes my commutes and delivery driving so much better. The hosts are great (most of them at least), the story is engaging, and I love how goofy/silly they get. out of stars because one of the hosts (Tim) still suffers from main character syndrome after episodes and tries WAY too hard to force funny

1. Love the show, but… - I love the show! It’s interesting, funny, and not as bad as some people would assume. However, they’re going the way of The Command Zone. Constant ads interrupting an interesting topic with terrible segways (sometimes there isn’t even one: they’re talking, and then BOOM, an ad!) I love this podcast, and I understand people need money, nothing can be done for free. But PLEASE, I beg, at least bother to segway into your ads. The lack of segways is disorientating and is honestly making me less likely to listen to this podcast more.
2. Easily My Favorite Commander Podcast - The EDHRECAST is easily my favorite podcast when it comes to Commander content. Their numbers driven approach sets them apart from other content, and gives the show a sense of perspective. The rapport among the hosts is great, each one brings something different to the table, and who doesn’t love starting each episode with a Dad joke.
3. Great, clear resource for commander - I really appreciate the way they use data, but I think it, and the way it’s written leads to a really scripted feel. I know outlines should be followed but it almost feels too scripted. If the information wasn’t as good or the group dynamic wasn’t as good, it’d likely drop a bit in rating. A good listen still.
4. Great Listen - I started listening after a shout out on CMDR Central. I love the rivalry different angle on commander your channel brings. I really enjoy that each episode is based on a different aspect of the game. The data based podcasting is a really interesting take when there is so many other podcasts out there.
5. Edhrecast is awesome! - Any EDH player knows how great EDHRec is for deck building and hearing these guys put some data into context is a great way to have some degree of objectivity for something that allows so much subjectivity as is playing MTG. Highly recommended! Already learned about so many cards and so many interactions that I wouldn’t know of if it wasn’t for this podcast! Keep the good work fellas!
6. Russian nesting dolls live in my head rent free - Was doing a project a few months ago and threw this on in the background, loved it right away and tore through episodes. I just listened to one that opened with a Russian nesting doll dad joke and that might be more useful than any amount of magic knowledge
7. Perfect podcast for Magic the Gathering Players! - I highly advise this podcast if you ar interested in magic and especially, the EDH-Commander format. The trio of hosts are entertaining and have helpful tips on creating a new decks, as well as improving existing decks! If you enjoy statistics, you’ll enjoy this podcast even more!
8. Fantastic ideas and entertaining - EDHRECAST is a funny, informative podcast for various topics in commander. Every episode is a great treasure trove of information that stems from three great hosts who show their knowledge of the game and interactions. I particularly love their challenge the stats bit, because it gives nice context to what cards should or shouldn’t be used any why. Keep it up!

1. Good content. Poor audio. - I’m not an advantage player, but I enjoy the content/advice/stories. Sadly, the audio quality is quite poor by today’s standards. Not sure if the fault lies with the microphones, the production software, the network, etc., but I hope the team will invest the time and a little money to make the shows sound better.
2. Terrific Show - Terrific show that covers a lot of ground and games ... even if I’m not a fan of the specific game or topic, i find I learn something about advantage play in general. Clearly it’s a lifestyle to be an advantage player, but even for us civilians it’s nice to find an edge here and there !
3. Star - I like this podcast a lot and have been listening to it for quite some time. My major issue is the sound quality of the show. IT’S HORRIBLE!! You can’t hear the guest half the time and then Richard will say something and he’s -db louder and his mic sound is all tinny and screechy. I understand that they don’t have many sponsors, but maybe that could change if they made the sound quality of the show more enjoyable. It stands to reason that more people would listen if it sounded better. More downloads more sponsors. At least one would think.
4. You can do better. - Ive been listening for quite a while and have mostly enjoyed the show. There is only one epidsode I enjoyed less than the Prax episode and that’s the Prax episode. Bob and Richard couldn’t have possibly screened this guest. Im sure he is a nice kid but came across as very inauthentic. Your audience deserves more. A year old rerun would have been better.
5. Biggest names in casino gambling - Hosts Bob Dancer and Richard Munchkin have been around a long time and know everybody.
Their guests are some of the biggest names in casino gambling as well as expert advantage players that play quietly, blending in with the masses Munchkin is the most recent cohost and certainly the best Highly recommend
6. Good content. Unacceptable audio quality - Given that anybody can purchase an entry-level podcasting rig for under $ these days, the fact that these hosts seem to phone it in (literally) a good chunk of the time is ridiculous. The episode from November th is a good example of this.
No matter how good the content is, it's virtually unbearable to listen in on what amounts to an hour-long phone call. With so much good content on iTunes, it's difficult to justify the investment in an audio-based show that doesn't make their audio quality a priority.

1. Well balanced EDH crew - The Mtggoldfish crew is great and provides many hours of not only entertainment but also fantastic deck building advice. I also appreciate the range in play level they discuss, from S tier cEDH all the way down to the “unplayables.” Thank you so very much for hours of entertainment both in my ears and also my eyes on YouTube. Clash on!!!!!!
2. Too many hot takes - It too often feels like the other guys are (rightfully) coming down on Richard for his hot takes that just distract from the conversation. Each episode it feels like Richard brings some new indefensible opinion that Crim, Seth, and Tomer have to try and talk him out of. Tolarian Academy unbanned? The back and forth doesn’t feel productive and Richard’s opinions made me no longer listen
3. A dk measuring competition disguised as an MTG podcast. - Woof! I was hoping this would be a fun show. It it’s a lot of dudes having an equipment measuring competition. “No no I have the more fringe edgelord opinion!” “No I do!!” “I’m so non conformist you guys! Pay attention to me!!” I like it when people go against the grain. Have interesting if not obscure deck ideas. Why I like Commander Quarters and the like. But not when you make it your whole personality. Like dang who didn’t take y’all to prom?
4. Amazing Commander podcast - This podcast, comprised of bros who just want to talk about the best card game ever printed, bring consistently fresh and interesting topics of conversation specifically within the lens of EDH. Their opinions are just as diverse as the things they discuss, and I come away from each episode gaining a broader view of what it means to play commander and be a commander player. This is definitely a / podcast. If you’re an EDH player, this ones for you!
5. Shut up Richard - Richard seems to be on of those l enchanting people that just says contrary nonsense for the sake of being contrary. Either that or he is a simpleton. And my goodness, enough with the whining, either stop playing magic or adopt a slightly more positive attitude. The rest of the gentleman are alright, just not Richard and his candy-coated brain.

1. Best D&D podcast - This is the best D&D live play podcast I’ve heard and to my knowledge it’s been around longer than the others too. It’s got a great, hilarious cast and the DM is great at telling a story. I’ve had tons of laughs listening to this and has encouraged me to finally learn to play the game myself.
2. I enjoy the adventures - I have only just found this podcast, I am enjoying season four. Maybe I’ll go back and listen from the beginning when I catch up and the silence at work drives me too crazy. Good stuff. Also with Brian’s name on the thing, he doesn’t seem to add much to the adventure. One minor nitpick, every so often some political comment might bleed through and I just don’t care to hear it. I don’t lean either way with the Right or Left nonsense. Still, a high out of podcast.
3. Love it, but... - I’m a D&D player (nd edition) and so really enjoy listening to another game. But, I’m only on the second episode so maybe it’ll go away, the guy noodling on the Casio keyboard is driving me nuts! He had a funny bit with it, but it’s pulling me away from the narrative! If I was there, I could ignore it, but here- have some consideration for your listeners. If I wasn’t needing a hack and slash fix I’d quit, but I’m really desperate!
4. Comedians playing D&D - That pretty much says it all. Don’t be too uptight about rules and you’ll really enjoy the story and characters. The DM has some of the most unique and interesting worlds and NPCs that I have ever seen. And I have been running games for over years. They have a really good chemistry as players and characters. I highly recommend!
5. Makes me wish I knew how to play DnD - I don’t generally write reviews, but staring at the most recent review with stars is annoying me. This pod is so funny and I’ve really loved listening to these goofy friends and their adventures. I started listening when the Stay at Home order started in Chicago and I’ve already caught up with season and I’m about to finish season . I only wish that I had friends who play DnD who could teach me how. But because of this pod, I now know the basics and it seems that even playing for years doesn’t mean you always know what’s happening when you’re raging :)
6. Solid two stars - Been listening to the glass cannon for years and gave this a try. Really no comparison between the two. The production, sound, story, characters and DM’ing do not compare at any level to The Glass Cannon. Nobody on Nerd poker acts as their character it’s just them for / times, they murder hobo everything, really not that funny and the story drags. It takes them forever to do anything and half the time it is lame and just I run up and attack this cool npc with a great story. You’re supposed to talk into the microphone fellas not chew.
7. My kinda game time! - Been playing board games with friends for years but kids, serious jobs and life makes it few and far between these days. This gets me through the dry times cuz as much as it was the game it was an excuse to get together, give each other s t and make each other laugh as only best friends can. Thanks Nerd Poker for being a friend!
8. Feels like your sitting at the table but your character died. - Reminds me a great deal of my friends and I playing. Your character didn’t make it and they’ll resurrect you if they get around to it. The fun and jokes are enough to make you not worry about your character and let’s be real, the way you’ve been rolling, you’d just die again anyway. I mean, who fails three straight death saves that badly? Your character was secretly craving the dark embrace and it’s time you came to terms with it. Seriously, I love that this takes place at his table with life going on around it. Praise nerd poker and praise D&D. Stay metal.

1. Awesome Podcast - TBH I’m a casual magic player but the crew at MTG Goldfish always make my passion for it peak. The podcast is awesome the YouTube is awesome, K don’t even play commander but the Commander Clash channel is incredible. I do wish they focused a bit less on competitive and more on just fun builds like I used to play when young but I fully understand. Absolutely great stuff that I wouldn’t change a minute of.
2. Questing for Mythic - Crim (TheAsianAvenger), Seth (SaffronOlive) and Richard (BlackTuna) are incredible hosts! Each week they dive into the Magic universe to discuss the various happenings across the galaxy. I was able to hit Mythic playing MTG Arena a few months ago for the first time. I was playing an Obosh deck before the companion nerf. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays if your crew celebrates?! Best, Mogwai Bubbles
3. More for the casual/arena only players - Decent podcast overall, but the hosts, particularly Richard, seem to be quite ignorant of formats outside of what’s on arena. Richard tends to be outright wrong in his perception of modern for example, and would be nice if Kess or Ben from the Masters of Modern podcast could come on periodically.
4. Honest Takes - Long time listener. Love hearing the crew’s opinions on the state of the game every week, and it’s nice to get the news if I didn’t have time to catch everything. I like hearing their takes on things. Of course I have my own opinions too, but they do a nice job breaking things down. Thanks guys!
5. Richard ruins it - If you wanna listen to Richard (the owner of MTGGoldfish) complain and cry about magic the gathering for an hour every week this is the place to get your fix. For some reason you can also hear him slapping his gums when he talks I thought I was the only one until I saw a review mention it also. Crim is always great to listen to and I used to love this podcast overall but I’m tired of all the complaining and whining that’s constant.
6. Too much of an Agenda for my taste.... - I was all in and enjoying this podcast until they started calling for and predicting the death of paper Magic. I know, it was only one person. Regardless, I am certainly not going to support this sort of “End of the World” fanaticism. See you guys. Good Luck.
7. Good for casuals - If you are looking a nuanced look at the meta, and your a higher level player, not a good podcast for you. This is much more a podcast from the average joe perspective, which personally I enjoy because I don’t have the time or money for magic to be a serious hobby for me. They often talk about what they see on the internet, and if you frequently browse reddit and twitter, and watch out for magic news you won’t hear anything new. I personally want me news curated and don’t want to have to make an opinion for myself. To summarize, great for a casual player.
8. Useful info but too lax - I appreciate having a good time or people making a good joke to laugh at but the hosts literally use laughter as communication mechanism because they can’t take themselves seriously. While I get that can be hard to get rid of that habit, it’s horrible to listen too when it’s over a third or half of the podcast.

1. We love Annie’s laugh - We love Annie’s laugh. My husband said to write “we wish David was funny so Annie would laugh more.” Which is totally not true but THAT made ME laugh. They’re both % delightful and we’ve enjoyed every episode. PS - I’m writing this on my husband’s account, so he’s going to be so surprised if he sees this!
2. Enjoy the trivia questions however… - Please curtail the boring chitchat and Annie, please stop laughing at literally everything..sounds like forced laughter or perhaps you’re nervous?? I just discovered this podcast and find the questions good but have to fast forward thru the trite commentary and excessive laughing..the Pod Quiz with James from Britain is far superior!
3. Annie and David could make my dog see farts! - I love, love, love this podcast... episode is the GOAT! I can not stop laughing at the sweet nothings that Annie and David always give each other. I have a crazy laugh too, so Annie and I are basically related. Plus... TRIVIA! Their trivia is a perfect mix of every category and fun for all ages from months to years and I can't wait to listen to the next episode every week! Super charming, super funny, super informative, and just. plain. super! Thanks guys, keep it coming!
4. Best overall trivia podcast - My wife and I play a lot of pub trivia and we listen to a lot of trivia podcasts. David and Annie get us ready for pub trivia like no other podcast out there. They’re smart, funny and very likable. We love the little extras of the show such as when regular listeners chime in with questions like Evil Mike, OR, Jose, and especially “Thank you Julian”! Keep it up Floras.
5. I really wanted to like it - I am a trivia geek, so I was trying to find a trivia show, without all the useless banter and hysterical laughter. I am a fan of PodQuiz because of that reason. Give me the trivia questions, and give me the answers without the sidebars, the jokes, the ridiculous laughing. This show is so-so. I think that you’re given the answers immediately after the questions. But the ridiculous banter, and the woman’s obnoxious he-haws drive me crazy insane. Some are way worse when the have guests on that are flipping the F word and go on and on about nothing. I really did want to like it, I really don’t. Give us straight up questions and answers with all the drivel and the obnoxious he-hawing.
6. Best Trivia Podcast - I’ve been working on my own trivia show and for inspiration I have been scouring the podcast app for a good one, and hands down, this is the best! The hosts are amazing, and the quiz writing is top notch. The Big Bang at the end is always well-constructed. Yeah, this is the quiz show to listen to.
7. Just a really great trivia podcast - I can’t say enough about how much I like this podcast. I love trivia and was clued into Quiz Quiz Bang Bang by another trivia podcast and so far this one is my favorite. The music is great, makes me feel like I need a cigar and a whiskey drink while enjoying, Annie is hilarious and David is not quite deadpan but has a serious delivery that makes the pair very enjoyable to listen to. The questions are sometimes a little hard but a good mix of questions and the production value is better than most. Like a good sitcom, you really come to enjoy the “characters” and end up learning a lot. They clearly research their questions well and have really scratched that itch for pub trivia during the COVID- pandemic. I’ve actually caught up on recent episodes and have resolved to listening to all of the previous episodes as well. Highly recommend if you’re in to good trivia and delightful quirkiness.
8. So fun, such good questions! - This is such a great hidden gem. The hosts are a hilarious and low key hang, the questions and categories are well-researched and the right difficulty where you feel challenged but can still answer enough of them to feel smart. David and Annie are so charming and their laughter is infectious. I particularly love the episodes where two teams compete, lots of fun.
