Podcast Spotlight: The Adventure Zone
By chance, I came across a new podcast this week. The Adventure Zone is hosted by the McElroy brothers, also the hosts of My Brother, My Brother and Me. It's a part of the Maximum Fun family of podcasts. I decided to give it a try because I enjoy the sense of humor on MBMBAM so much, and I loved it!
The premise of the adventure zone is that the McElroy family starts a Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Each episode follows them on their adventure. Honestly, I've never played D&D. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy listening to a podcast version of other people playing it. It is hilarious though! The brothers, and their father, bring their characteristic good humor and charm and rather than being dull, the whole affair is highly entertaining. The focus is on humor and fun rather than close adherence to the rules. A couple of the players are new too, so they explain the basics for anyone who is also unfamiliar.
I'm really pleased that I managed to find this one early as the story will progress from week to week, so it'll be helpful to have listened to them all. I'm already looking forward to the next episode! It has definitely made it into my podcast rotation, and I encourage everyone to check it out and follow along with Taako, Merle and Magnus!
