I love the various views of the guests that Joe brings onto his show! I also enjoy seeing where their styles match up. I’m glad that there’s a solid mailbag-based D&D advice show on the air now, and I can’t wait to see what other guests and questions (also wacky characters from the character generation section, lol) Joe has in store!
Incredible advice

Joe is an amazing host! The episode with Matt Mercer taught me as much about GMing as like a year's good experience, maybe more. I also really dig the theme music, that's a small thing but an important one.
Really enjoying the start!

I’m loving this, especially the middle segment of the random character and the different perspectives on DMing! I actually am learning a ton as I start my own first home-brew.
