Thinking Critically: A D&D Discussion

Thinking Critically: A D&D Discussion

A discussion show with different guests each episode. We take a single concept or idea and discuss what that means within the D&D framework to help you get the most out your sessions, whatever side of the screen you sit on. Consider it an NPR-style, bitesize mix of thought-provoking analysis and humorous anecdotes!

Host

Hey, I'm Danilo! I'm from Southampton in rainy ole' England. I love D&D, video games, and K-Pop (ONCE, ReVeluv) - talk to me about any of these things! I've been playing D&D for five years as both DM and player, and I'm currently two years in to running a fully homebrew campaign with six friends. I love sharing my NPCs, plot hooks, and other collateral so if you're in need of some inspiration, just let me know! This podcast is my passion project, and the best bit has been interacting with a whole bunch of talented and creative individuals. I also play the insufferable Quinn in the Dungeons, Dice, and Dudes actual play podcast, click the link in the footer if you want to hear six handsome individuals play D&D and having a blast.
