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.

    Ep 2: Blackhollow - Part 2

    Our first fight! The team explores secret doors, secret passages, and make secret discoveries about Blackhollow's demon problem. After a nap Yolanda does a 'quick recap' for the police chief which goes as poorly as you'd expect.

    Note that sound is sub-optimal for about ten minutes, but after that it's crystal clear.
