This is an amazingly entertaining podcast that uncannily provides incredibly insightful information in a fantastically fun form. Every episode makes me cry with laughter and betters me as a person. Thanks to Chad and William for making such an awesome show that I will cherish forever.
This is the single best D&D podcast out there. The hosts are charismatic, funny, and have an excellent rapport. Audio quality, pacing, and editing are top notch, with great production values - music interludes, etc. The suggestions are useful and the anecdotes are entertaining and relatable. I would love to be a player at their table. The Exemplary DM Podcast is not just instructive to would-be exemplary DM's, but to podcasters as well.
Great for any GM
By far my favorite podcast for GMs by GMs! Gadgets of the podcast are great! Is there any way we can get the missing episodes from seasons 1 and 2 on iTunes though?
