Liam Listens #8: “Encyclopodia” and “Forest Guide”

Whoa! Some really excellent shows with some really excellent episodes this week! And here we go talking about them again!

Encyclopodia: “Dungeonmaster (Dungeons & Dragons Role) With Greg Henderson”

Encyclopodia’s a show about learning, in which we the listeners learn about a subject with its host, Danny Pirtle. And this week, we learn a lot together! Danny interviews the Dungeon Master Greg Henderson, and takes his viewers on a journey of understanding the game of Dungeons and Dragons. The interview is insightful and enjoyable, and I at least learned a lot about the role of Dungeon Master, and how to get the most out of the role at the table both in and out of game. I will definitely be taking what I learned from Greg into future games of Dungeons and Dragons, as well as the other RPGs I play!

Forest Guide: “Chapter 4”

The finale of this show was heartbreaking and amazing. The beginning was pretty heavy emotionally, and I had to pause and walk around the house for a bit. Once I did that, I was ready to continue, and the finale, it felt so raw and real and important, and I was really amazed and impressed by Shiloh. He was a really strong character and learner, and he did so much that was so good. The conclusion to the Guide’s story was also really well done and so good too. Having her going back to her wife was just…gah. So good. The performances were brilliant, I love Jack Pevyhouse and Julia Schifini in their roles. It’s an amazing conclusion to an amazing miniseries. I obviously would love to see another story take place in this universe, but if this the end, I don’t think this could have been better. Also I love the references to other Audio Fictions, that’s so good. I love this show and it’s so amazing! From beginning to end, it was fantastic.

Gosh! What a swell pair of episodes! Dang! So great.
