A group of friends have their lives turned upside down when they find themselves placed as the last line of defense between the everyday world and the things that go bump in the night.

damn. Jake should have flavored his Invincible talent as further protection from Odin. Maybe have it represented as like Nordic tattoos

From the ever entwined stories to the amazing editing, this group never ceases to entertain. I couldn't be happier to have been introduced to this podcast! This campaign has been a great companion when I drive, particularly on long trips. Now that I am caught up to current episodes, I'm not sure what I'm going to do. If you enjoy tabletop games and comedy, I highly recommend this player podcast. Every adventure is full of surprises that will keep you on the edge of your seat and wit that will offer plenty of laughs! Though if you tend to react physically to stories that move you, use caution if you listen in your car.

Not a bad show. If you ever miss the days of hanging out with your dorky friends, playing games this is the podcast for you. The guys are skilled in improv and are having fun and you feel part of the group just by listening. What is great is, I have a feeling it will also get better with time.
