The banter between Greg and Shelly is fantastic - both of their laughs are contagious. Definitely agree that the regular bits are the best. The interviews are great - even those I don't like are informative and I learn a lot about stuff I don't know about. All in all, a great podcast to keep on in the car or while at work. They deserve all the poddys!

Such fun...

Rank #4: Joe Manganiello on Arkhan & Critical Role

Podcast cover

We begin by welcoming this week's guest…Bob Ross? Shelly Mazzanoble (@shellymoo) and Greg Tito (@gregtito) let their imaginations soar with the possibilities of Axis & Allies & Bob Rosses! Tremble in fear at the thought of an all-out assault of legions of evil little trees upon your forces! After this flight of fancy, we come back to reality to present our actual interview with actor, director, author, and Emmy Award winning narrator Joe Manganiello (@joemanganiello). From the age of ten, Joe has had a love for tabletop gaming and storytelling. When he got the chance to play as a guest on the massively popular live-stream D&D game, Critical Role, he stole the show in an astounding act of betrayal during the gripping finale of the first campaign. Sage Advice – Jeremy Crawford (@jeremyecrawford) explains the sometimes-tricky subject of mounted combat on the podcast today. Riding into battle atop a mighty steed or even soaring through the clouds on the back of a dragon is a mainstay of fantasy narratives, but in D&D there are specific rules and limitations to consider.
