Great Big Story
A podcast about the delightful, the surprising, and the untold true stories all around us. Hosted by Drew Beebe.
The year is 1982. The first compact disc player is released. George R. R. Martin’s book A Game of Thrones is still 14 years from being published. And a teenager named Robert Wardhaugh starts a game of Dungeons & Dragons. Thirty-eight years later, Wardhaugh and his group of friends are still playing the same game of D&D, quite possibly the longest continuous game of the popular fantasy role playing game. Wardhaugh has altered the rules to his liking and created a sweeping storyline that keeps his dozens of players coming back year after year.
