About this podcast
Brett and Sean (BS) are two of your friends talking about roleplaying games and other related topics. Even though we come to you from Wisconsin, the origins of TSR and Dungeons and Dragons, we don't claim to be experts. Our approach is not only light, but it may even make you laugh... OR rip your hair out.
