Today we are presenting Inn Between! Inn Between is an adventure that takes place between adventures, wherein our five heroes (who may or may not be player characters in a fictional Dungeons & Dragons campaign) relax, regroup, and shoot the breeze in the conveniently located Goblin’s Head Inn. The show intentionally leaves details of the adventurers’ escapades to the imagination, with the only information provided to the listener in the form of “Previously On” and “Next Time On” segments at the beginning and end of each episode. This unique format allows for the kind of character development and team building that isn’t facilitated by the mechanics of most Actual Play podcasts (and even D&D campaigns themselves).

Hey friends! We’re still slowly working our way toward bringing new Greater Boston minisodes to your feed, but in the meantime, we’re excited to introduce you to our friends over in Visionaries Audio Drama. Set in the year 2185, the world is distinguished by two races – the Visionaries and the Dead-eye slaves. The Visionary race is the next step in human evolution. They have unique eyes which endows them with special abilities. Humans unable to evolve are slaves to the Visionaries because of their powerless eyes. These Dead-eye slaves open rebellion against the Visionaries. Greater Boston fans will love Visionaries for its political intrigue, incredible ensemble cast, and utterly killer sound design. It’s a massive show with rich interpersonal relationships and deep worldbuilding thanks to creator and star Richard Seneque.  With two complete seasons under their belts, now is the perfect time to get into Visionaries. Take a listen to their first episode right here, right now, and go find them on the podcast player of your choice to marathon the rest! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
