December 2, 2019

They each come in with different expectations, but it's safe to say that no one is getting what they signed up for. When the spears are raised and the arrows fly, will they learn to work together to survive, or will this be the shortest podcast series ever recorded? Find out in the first episode of Dungeon Dads!

Jonas, Filnyr, and Abel are given the task of rooting out the mysterious "Hank," the enemy agent convincing new recruits to desert. It's a counter-espionage extravaganza as Jonas spies a new business opportunity, and the gang has trouble telling lies from the truth, not because they're in too deep, but because they're just not very good at this.
