i honestly didn't know what i was getting myself into when i listened to the first episode on a whim, but i'm so glad i did! even if you've never played D&D--which, disclaimer here, i totally haven't--it's accessible, incredibly hilarious, and totally compelling. i'm always looking forward to every other thursday, especially right now that were hitting the end of this arc. this latest episode was a DOOZY.
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!
And still the best. A friend recommended this to me ahead of an 18 hour solo road trip. I became an instant fan and had a tough time keeping the car on the road at some points because I couldn't stop laughing. Griffin's amazing imagination drives the story as his brothers and father do their best to steer it in hilarious directions. 100% recommend.
A lot of fun to listen to, I can't wait till the next episode.
Having a great time listening through the back catalog. They do an amazing job of focussing on the fun aspects of the game and breezing over the tedium. Silly voices and entertaining situations abound.
This podcast takes you on an amazing and hilarious ride of fun from a family of good good boys and their father.
It's 3:00 in the morning and I'm listening to episode 21 and crying from laughter
This is by far the podcast I get the most excited to when I see it pop up in my "unplayed" list. Between Griffin's (The DM) masterful narration and story creation and the fun gameplay and chemistry from Justin (Taako), Travis (Magnus), and Clint (Merle), each episode is jam packed with super wet stunts and side splitting goofs. *Great job* & keep them coming!
I love this podcast. Please please listen and donate.
The storytelling in this podcast is next level. I honestly can't imagine why a person might dislike this show. Whether you're a D&D nerd or have never wanted or tried to play it, it's simply the medium for the brothers and their dad to tell an exceptional story.
I binge-listened to this podcast even having never played D&D before. I won't give any spoilers but there were even a few "twists" that Griffin threw out there that had me loudly exclaiming, "NOOOOO!!!!" It's sooo good!(For the record though, I just started a D&D game with my family and it's way harder than they make it look.)
I was never a fan of DnD until I listened to this podcast! These lovely lads bring laughs and excitement with every episode and the hour goes by in what feels like twenty minutes. Love these magic boys!
You will be hard pressed to find a more charming, exciting, and gripping podcast than this epic tale of magic marauders. I wish I could give it a 6/5 stars.
Anything they do I enjoy and this is not an exception. Also I love the gays!!
Best dnd podcast bar none! Give this podcast a good binge listen. Some of the best storytelling you could expect from the McElroy brothers
I binged listened to the whole thing in a week and started it up from the beginning almost immediately after catching up, its so good and I'm already trying to rope all my friends into listening to it with me
I love where this D&D adventure has gone, and should be looked to as an example for story telling and D&D podcasting. Tres Horny Boys 4 life!
Never even played D&D but it wasn't an issue at all. Super funny, and later on, it has great music and can be surprisingly feels-inducing. I definitely remind it.
everything about this is good and i love these boys.
Some of the best storytelling I've ever heard in any context. I can't recommend it highly enough.
More Clint please.
Absolutely love this podcast, so sad that I caught up!
This podcast is absolutely 1000% worth listening to. I've been doing homework all day and I have yet to get bored, and you really don't even have to like d&d to enjoy this. I love it.
You guys are hilarious. I wish I had found this podcast sooner. I absolutely love what you're doing. Keep up the good work fellas.
Honestly just a fantactic podcast. The characters are amazing and funny. The DM is top notch with his creativity and witty humor. 10/10 would recommend!
Love the McElroys!
This show is dope
Came for the goofs, stayed for the extremely well thought-out story arcs and character development
The McElroy Brothers and their dad Clint are simply hilarious. Clint is my new spirit animal, and I wish my D&D players were just like Travis and Justin, and I aspire to be more like Griffen every day. Listen to this podcast...
I tell everyone I know to listen to it and they're never disappointed because they are so hilarious.
Started listening a couple weeks ago at episode 1 now on episode 54. I'm going to have to wait for the episodes to come out. Very entertaining and comical! Keep being you Merel, Taako, Magnus, Angus, and DM.
Couldn't get past the first 3 mins of the first episode because some idiot couldn't find a better time to eat than during a podcast
My friend told me about this and i listened to the forst episode, not believing it would be that good, and it changed my life, keep it up boys, LONG LIVE BARRY BLUE JEANS
I binged to ep 54 in the bare number of days one can binge 54 hour long podcast eps. I love this show, everything from the NPCs, the humor, the PC, and the overarching story of the Adventure Zone. Even the music is awesome as heck. I would completely recommend to anyone with even the slightest interest in D&D.
dropping by to give my boys 5 stars because they deserve it, this is the greatest most well written podcast they put so much character and so much love into it and it gets better every single episode
I love The Adventure Zone. These guys are so funny and really make me want to start playing D&D (by which I'll be super disappointed because no one will be as good a DM as Griffin). The dynamic between Griffin, Justin, Travis, and their dad reminds me a lot of my own family, which makes me like the podcast even more. 10/10 would recommend.
I listened to the first 7 episodes in a single weekend. I regret not being more productive while listening, but I don't regret making time for this podcast. There's big laughs in this one, and its great for begining McElroys listeners or begingers to D&D. Thanks to thesnadger from tumblr for recommending it.
The quality of this podcast cannot be overstated. Everyone present is truly hilarious and incredibly creative, and the story as crafted by Griffin McElroy is more complex, vivid, and detailed than I could have ever imagined. It is as entralling as a novel while as funny as can be. My deepest recommendations.
I tried listening to this podcast before I ever played D&D and thought, âhuh, cool,â and now that I DO play I caaaanât get enough! Griffin is an excellent DM, even in the earliest episodes heâs a great story-teller and makes the intricacies of the rules easy to comprehend. I have loved the McElroy brand of humor for a long time and itâs magical to hear them interacting with Clint as well. GREAT JOB!
Doesn't drag too much, particularly for working with newer players. Good mood and comedy.
Do yourself a favor & give this a try! As someone who's never played D&D, I can confirm that no experience is necessary to thoroughly enjoy this hilarious fantasy adventure with this beautiful family of sassy adventure boys.
My DM turned me on to this podcast a few months ago, and line a thorny vine to Merle's a impeccable Pan fueled swagger I was hooked and moderate to severely aroused. I flew through the first 20 episodes in a week and am already all caught up and eagerly awaiting the next episode! It's an amazing show and has inspired me to write my very own original adventure that my test subjects (adventurers) have just started playing! Thanks for the inspiration and the hours of goofs I can only get from the McElroy's!
Best podcast, best boys, love it !
I'd say this is more about cooperative story telling then playing a game. The McElroy's have excellent hilarious chemistry. Just listen chances are you'll love it
Seriously my favorite D&D podcast of all time, keep up the good work boys!
Hail and we'll met my dude! I'm completely addicted to The Adventure Zone.
