    My boys for life
    Every day if I don’t listen to the adventure zone, it is not a day worth living. But on a more serious note, this is my all time favorite podcast. If anyone ever needs a podcast suggestion, it’s this one. The family is so unique, fun, and will make you genuinely laugh and cry at the same time. Every night before bed, if I’m doing chores, or driving, this is always my first choice to put on. Each season is amazing whether they are playing d&d or other game systems. If you’ve been thinking about listening to the adventure zone… DO IT!

    You made it! Stop searching! Come on in.
    This is hands down the most entertaining dnd/rpg podcast. Highly recommend, start today, do yourself this favor, you’ve earned it.

    TAZ is so well done!
    Started listening after I was a fan of MBMBaM. I just went back and relistened to Balance, and then listened to Amnesty and Graduation for the first time. It’s so amazing to me how the boys can be so creative in so many different ways. Absolutely love this podcast!

    Disappointing story telling
    The first season ‘Balance’ was great. What I’ve noticed over the last several seasons is a trend that there is not a full story. It feels like the brothers play with an idea, background story, new system play for severe months and then rush to the end of the story. It makes the overall plot feel disjointed and disappointing despite the fun interplay. I would like for there to be a coherent beginning middle and end to the seasons.

    TAZ is by far the best D&D Podcast
    I just finished listening to Amnesty (again) and no matter how many times I listen to the finale, those last 10 minutes always makes me cry. The story telling for all campaigns are amazing, plenty of voiced characters (sometimes too and an abundance of family interactions all make this podcast the best. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, for all that you do.

    Best D&D Podcast
    I’ve listened to Balance 3 times. And their other campaigns are incredible, too. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves dungeons and dragons or those looking to get into it!

    I was in the middle of the day I had a lot more fun than my other one but it wasn’t really a lot to me but it wasn’t a lot to me but it

    Continued content appreciation
    Listening back through and realizing each time how much I enjoy their content! In the middle of Graduation now and forgot how good it was!
  • ricKauffman
    I am not enjoying SteepleChase
    The storyline is nearly impossible to follow. I have had no idea what’s going on for months. It’s a GM problem. If you’re a new listener, try out the seasons where Griffin is GM, not Justin. In regards to their other seasons and live shows, guests they invite are annoying; thus, Dust is hard to listen to, despite being a world & characters with potential (sans the guest).

    Customer satisfaction
    I just want to say this podcast is one of the funniest podcasts I have seen for a while. Their beloved antics, the campaign, and the mockery… oh the Jenkins and the candy station scene had me dying. The boys practically have vicious mockery as a bonus action. Amazing podcast- and thank you for reading. Btw sharing the podcast is cool.
  • GN_:)
    Everyone is wrong about graduation
    Grad is and always will be my favorite season listen to grad, balance, and amnesty for sure but idk about ethersea I don’t like steeplechase it’s I don’t like tik tok and it feels like Justin is pandering to the way he sees gen z so overall first 3 seasons are awesome but season 4 and beyond are suffering because of them going weekly they did great when going biweekly please go back to a biweekly show thank you ok peace oh yeah ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 stars
  • TechWitchNeon
    Hit and miss but when it’s good it’s good
    Balance: Loved it. Amnesty: Good but flawed. Commitment: Fine but didn’t have time to pick up. Dust: Barely remember this one. Graduation: I fell off the wagon at this season because I hated it.
  • Ohohohohohohohohohohoh
    I enjoy, but I want Upsy to appear more in the episodes
  • forrrestfae
    amazing just amazing
    quite literally my favorite piece of media of all time i mean every episode every campaign straight up if you're reading this and deciding whether to listen or not, please just do yourself a favorite and go do it you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll not want to think about anything else ever
  • Sucky dm
    Review from a fellow dm
    I LOVE this show. My dad introduced this as way to get ideas for campaign. Me my brother and my dad play together which is probably more pathetic then 4 people playing. It’s so pathetic that the dm has to play too. But I love this show. I just started listening and I’m excited to continue.
  • Stinie215
    My forever podcast
    I will never get tired of this podcast, it’s stories, and the genuine laughter and tears I’ve experienced while listening to TAZ.
  • Sheina Sim
    A hilarious journey that comes alive in your mind through Griffin’s word pictures
    I am not a podcast person. Up until last month, my podcast intake was limited to what I happened upon on NPR. Adventure Zone was recommended to me by a friend because I showed interest in DnD, and I am addicted. I started on episode one and now I’m on episode 41 after listening every chance I get. The McElroys roll a critical hit tickling my funny bone.
  • Some theatre kid
    Great show, addictive stories
    I have listened to all of Balance, Amnesty, and Graduation and this stuff is fantastic. Grad is probably my favorite but I just love how these idiots can do roleplaying as if they aren’t idiots. It’s amazing. Also the Steeplechase intro music is such a bop along with the wonderland theme in balance. Such lovable characters I stg this is some kind of witchcraft because when I first heard the McElroys were playing dnd, I thought those goofballs could never pull it off. However, they did and in the best way possible.
  • RintzPrebus
    I’m a big fan of these boys
    Three horny boys and and their hornier dad, with a penchant for casual cursing and no shortage of social anxiety, play TTRPGs and sometimes it’s funny but most of the time it’s hilarious. While the quality of seasons will fluctuate, the characters are always carefully made and played sincerely.
  • WA PAT
    Toot sweet!
    I credit the balance arch as what got me through 2020. Genuinely the best podcast ever.
  • pseudonymys
    Amazing and funny
    The phantom sea coast co got me chuckling started listening late last year and it has supplied all my podcasts needs
  • jeremybeaudry
    The best podcast ever
    Amnesty and Balance are my favorite. But that sure doesn’t mean I like the other ones!! (I’m probably the only listener under 20.) Funny stuff!
  • CoriFace
    are you guys okay
    you know like in general
  • purpledolphinassault
    Funny, but…
    This Roll for Sandwich knock off is funny, I just wish I could figure out what food they’re trying to make
  • imn98
    Thank u
    This new season is so good thank you Justin I love theme parks and I love these boys
  • jezwhatever
    But the background audio
    A quiet plea to turn down the background noise in Steeplechase. I love this story, but my adhd is absolutely wrenched by the distracting little songs that signal certain locations? I can’t focus them out. Just me? Probably
  • D&D enjoyer
    Cash money
    If I had a dollar every time I laughed at this podcast I’d be very wealthy. Must I say more?
  • fartwench
    I just want to laugh, not have my vibes harshed by problem characters
    Great podcast. Balance will always be the best. I’m midway through Ethersea. Not my favorite just because of Travis’ character. Bad vibes all around. I hear enough of personal problems in real life, I don’t want to hear it when I just want to laugh. Please bring back the levity and lightheartedness of Balance. This is my favorite dnd podcast and I really don’t want to find a new one. :(
  • Lodse_Rahns
    I stg I'm addicted.
    I can't even count how many times I've relistened to this entire show. I've consumed so much McElroy media it's insane. I cannot fathom why anyone wouldn't like this show or any of their content. Please please please listen to this amazing podcast!! ❤️❤️❤️
  • Murdo42
    Re listenable
    Hello all, Balance is amazing and the storytelling there keeps me coming back. Also, the Sherlock Holmes mini-experience was ridiculous. You will want to hear about A certain spectral horse too. The new stuff is also very good. You should listen to these now.
  • McBroom rules!
    I started this podcast to stay connected with my son after he moved out. He introduced me to MBMBAM, the McElroys were so funny! Then one day he mentioned the Adventure Zone, he is on the current campaign and I am on the Suffering Game. We laugh over funny scenes, and quotes all the time. He talks to me about ideas for his cosplay of Taako for a Con, and a lot of times we start talking about deeper feelings. Thanks boys and Clint for helping my son and I connect as adults, and be friends!!❤️
  • CaesarVVulpes
    Something here for everyone
    Been a huge fan since the first season. There’s something for everyone here, be it genre, system, or story! Even when a new season doesn’t hit with me right away, I always love it once I’m in the right zone (ha!).
  • Greyman_
    Trying to drive listeners away?
    I used to love this podcast, but it seems the brothers are trying to drive listeners away. High pitch carnival music playing in the background. "Steeple Chase" is another "Hey, let's not play D&D, instead lets play another D6 only game."
  • txrharvey
    love this new season!! This has been a reliably wonderful show I’ve returned to for 5 years. Thanks for the adventures, zone!!
  • Snowman910
    So fun

  • kdibs83
    My first DND podcast!
    1000/10!!! So many good episodes and characters! I’m currently working through Graduation while being stuck in an airport and this podcast really helps pass the time!
  • BreeManteau
    Never Stop
    My first real exposure to D&D and play podcasting, and my favorite thing to wake up to on a Thursday morning (I still love you Crit Role). These boys bring me joy.
  • PoppaWheelie IH8MUD
    This is heavenly
    I just love this podcast. I am a Greek mythology nerd so it is interesting that they called that Grand relic the Gaia sash.

    an amazing experience for anyone and everyone.
  • Chefdippy
    Good show!!!!
    Balance is my favorite arc but Steeple Chase had quickly become my second favorite because of the successful themes/bits. Always a solid time!
  • chtntkalbdus
    The best.

    Extremely Funny

  • Richard KL
    Really effective storytelling
    This is exactly what you want out of an actual play podcast. Goofs, laughs, earned poignant moments. There are several arcs/campaigns and the characters in all of them are a ton of fun. They have a fun, easygoing dynamic and don't get too bogged down in the rules of the games they play most of the time.
  • famousamous25
    This is the best podcast I’ve ever listened to in my life. You must listen to this podcast
  • fine content in fact
    This is great
    Steeplechase is quickly becoming one of my favorite campaigns due to the fantastic worldbuilding, I’m interested in seeing where this arc will go. Also, I’M SHROOG
