Second Best: A DnD Adventure

Second Best: A DnD Adventure

Second Best: A DnD Adventure is a comedy podcast where a bunch of New York City improvisers play D&D.

Second Best follows the adventures of Bug, Yolanda, Gail, and Hue in a fantasy realm called Milarien. They’re not the finest adventurers in the land - a fact they’re reminded of a lot - but that won’t stop this determined bunch.

Stephen Buckley is your dungeon master, the players are Ali Gordon, Glo Tavarez, Marty Scanlon, and Stephen Kelly.
