"Nerd Poker" Shows the Humor and Fun of Dungeons and Dragons

Dungeons and Dragons can get a lot of shit sometimes, I myself used to think it was a ridiculous activity. I was wrong, and in the years since I have come to recognize it as a pretty nifty thing to do. It seems clear that D&D suffers from some societal misunderstanding and an easy way to alleviate this misunderstanding is though easily accesible accurate representations of gameplay. One such representation comes in the form of a recently begun podcast entitled "Nerd Poker". "Nerd Poker" follows the bizarre and funny D&D game of comedian Brian Posehn and his friends. NP shows D&D in the best way possible; all the players are creative in their decision making, a key element to D&D, while maintaining the basic gameplay of 4th edition D&D. If you have ever been interested in learning D&D, or just want a new podcast to listen to, check out "Nerd Poker" at
