I first checked this out while looking for more role play coc and was disappointed that they don't actually run campaigns in this pod. However it's become a favorite of mine. All three hosts are quite knowledgeable and entertaining. Especially enjoy the npc's from history episodes.

I was turning someone on to your podcast —because it’s awesome — when he noted that Scott sounds like Winnie the Pooh. I think he has the perfect voice for horror lulling you into a false sense idyllic comfort before... well, horror.
