And have listened to over 40 hours of straight D&D majesty. I am already dreading when this arc is done. I AM OBSESSED.
The Adventure Zone starts as a classic d&d campaign but quickly turns into a rich story with lovable characters and quality original music. These bros are podcasting pros so you know you're in for a top notch auditory experience.
From writing and characterization to plot development and pacing, this podcast is head and shoulders above the crowd. The voice acting is superb, the characters are adorable, and the action both thrills and amuses--often at the same time. Beyond worth a listen!
I came to this podcast from Sawbones and I must now go explore the rest of the McElroy podcasts. This podcast is great and I highly recommend it.
I love this show so much, like literally I laugh every episode and it makes me so happy. I almost can't wait to finish it so I can listen to it all over again.
I love this show so much!! I hope after everything is kind of resolved, they keep going on adventures because I'm so gosh darn attached to these characters!!!
The McElroy's are amazing! They have created an incredible narrative through their gameplay with memorable characters and stories that will leave you laughing or in tears. If you're a fan of the McElroys, then this is just a great continuation, if you're a fan of actual-play Dnd podcasts then give this a try (theres room for more than one in your heart!)
Couldn't help but binge the show to catch up. Can't wait for the finale of this arc!
Taako is bae he is my most favorite I hope he is feeling good and if anyone sees this give him my love
It's just the best podcast I've ever listened to and I highly recommend it! All the characters are super lovable and hilarious!!
Honestly, the story with the McElroy brothers has given me so much joy and inspiration at a time of great uncertainty. TAZ is always good for an uplifting laugh while still being a deeply heartfelt story. 100/10, 15 billion stars, and all my love.
This podcast routinely has me cry-laughing! it's also inspired me to start playing D&D myself.
I listened to this podcast while on a long car ride recently, and I was laughing the whole time!!! Takko is my favorite character so far! It's super interesting and the theme song is cool too!
I heart Merle Hightower Highchurch. This show is great. I've tried other DnD podcast but this is the only one that stuck. Griffin is a great story teller and the group is hilarious
very good and entertaining though it takes a bit to really pick up
I'm a huge fan of DnD and sometimes it's hard to get together with my friends to play. This satisfies the craving and then some. The scenarios that play out and the character dynamic between the McElroy's makes me envious at times because it is just too perfect. They also don't take themselves too seriously so even dull encounters end up being entertaining! I'm gonna listen to all of them and recommend to friends!
It's about time I rated you guys! I look forward to every episode, and I love all that you do. Listen to the other podcasts they're affiliated with everyone!
Please GOD stay safe!!! And let Clint Be Hid Best Self!!! I LOVE HIM!!!!!
Comedic timing, brilliant engaging story. Memorable characters, interactivity. THE MEMES OH GOD THE MEMES! Foolproof editing and story pacing. This is simply the best actual play tabletop D&D podcast up alongside Godsfall.
or are looking to get into D&D, this is a fantastic podcast that takes you through the loops of all the fun places you can go, the types of characters you can meet, and the type of players you can be! A hilarious podcast, wish I could rate it higher than the standard 5 stars!
Just ... no words
I love this show. I can not express this enough. Clint and the boys have created a fantastic story with great characters, and Griffin has crafted an overarching narrative that is one of my favorite stories. I recommend this podcast to all of my friends, and I wish it came out more often!!
he LOVE it
I've never played Dungeons and Dragons, and I don't really know very much about it, but I love this podcast. Aside from the fact that these boys are unbelievably hilarious, the story is amazing. Griffin does a fantastic job DMing, and the structure is great. Several mini-quests inside one story, and the details and weaving of that story makes up for the fact that none of these boys can remember any of the items they have. I listened to the whole catalog over the course of a week, and I loved every minute of it.
Somehow Griffin manages to make it hilarious but also beautiful! This is one of the best D&D podcasts I've ever listened to!
I love everything about TAZ and the McElroys.
Was introduced by friends online and I wake up excited to join the adventures with Merle, Taako and Magnus!
I love these guys!!!
I've listened to the whole thing twice now, and I can safely say I've never loved a podcast more. The character growth and development quickly goes from dumb boner jokes to serious emotional attachment, so stick it out if the first few episodes aren't quite your jam. Every episode leaves me wishing it was longer and if my fiancÃ©e would let me, I'd invite all four of the McElroys to my wedding.
And I don't cry often.
Did the whole podcast in one shot then turned around and did it again. Im a junkie. It is glorious. Just download it and despair for your new unmanageable addiction.
The Adventure Zone has such a good story and the characters are fantastic, this is one of my favorite podcasts ever! Also the arcs are so different from each other you really get a bit of everything in this. Like what an interesting world that this takes place in. TAZ is my aesthetic tbh ððððð
I didn't know how much I was going to like this but since it basically took over my tumblr I decided to give it a shot and I'm glad I did! Griffin does an amazing job and while listening to it I forget that I crave actual human contact!
These guys are really funny and the DM is great at adding a comical element to the stories. It's probably my favorite podcast.
I caught up to this, 60 some hour long episodes, in two weeks. It's so GOOD! The story is entrancing, the people behind it are genuinely caring and nice, and the laughs are so, so, soooo good! Past arc one it just picks up so much. I recommend this to anyone who likes D&D, fantasy, the McElroys, or the types of jokes that only come from family.
First off, this podcast is amazing. Griffin crafts a deep, intertwining story about power, loss, hopefulness, etc. while his brothers and father masterfully destroy everything. The characters are rich and fleshed out as the boys relate their real world experience to the fictional characters they embody.But a podcast is only as good as the community it influences, so I must recommend staying away from it. Like any fandom, the people that adapt the boys' art work wonders, creating diverse fan art that consider the characters as possibly a different skin color and body size than what another listener may imagine. Griffin has constantly remarked how amazing the art and they creative community has become, and the world is more vibrant because of it. But on the other hand, The Adventure Zone is not immune from those demanding that it follows their views. Toxic fans berate the boys for not including enough representation, making their loud voice boom over those who created it in the first place. The story has taken creative turns away from its original trajectory in the ever insisting pursuit of inclusion, and while in theory that line of thinking is admirable and necessary, creators of the art should not be criticized for work that they have created.This hatred and social justice bullying has reached back around to the art community, where an artists personal recreations of the characters are now viewed as incorrect and the artists themselves are treated with disrespect and insulted. In summary, this podcast is amazing, but please stay far away from the fandom
Literally the most hilarious and captivating podcast I've heard. I am so grateful I was talked into giving this a try, it has truly enriched my life. I drive and travel so much, this podcast has been with me everywhere as the best co-pilot. Thank you guys so much.
Very Good and enjoyable
The show is the perfect blend of funny, nerdy, and suspense. I love the story, I'm always completely immersed. My only complaint is that it isn't weekly!Edit one- OMG IS IT TWO THURSDAYS FROM NOW YET!?!? Best podcast online!!!
The latest ep (65) has got me so shook this is literally the best thing I've ever listened to??
I love this podcast. Its so amusing and keeps me interested in D&D and other RPGs
I've never really been into podcasts, but a friend kept referencing the Adventure Zone so I decided to try it out. And let me tell you, I have not been let down yet. This show is hilarious, has incredible storytelling, and just generally is enjoyable to listen to. I have not ceased talking about it to everyone I know since I started listening. I love it so much.
No, literally The best one ever made. No lie. Check it out.
I like this podcast. It gives my eardrums the pleasure that they deserve. Not as much pleasure as a q-tip going in and out, but still a good pleasure. If you think that your eardrums havenât been pleased, then download this podcast and start pleasuring away. Over 40 hours of eardrum massaging pleasure. Almost makes sure your eardrum wonât skip a beat.
I love these boys
One of the most interesting, exciting, and funny podcasts I've ever listened to. Griffin does an amazing job as DM and the other McElroys dungeoneering skills are highly entertaining. You will laugh, you will cry, you will laugh some more. It even inspired me to try playing DnD with my own family.The family that slays together, stays together. Thanks Adventure Zone!
A jokey, ridiculous, epic-fighting heart! The McElroys do it again. Perfect for experienced and inexperienced gamers alike.
This is most definitely worth anyone's time who enjoys any type of storytelling. Griffin is one of the best storytellers of our age.
