206 - Dungeons and Dragons

Our first episode for Block 2019 (a month of our most requested episodes) is all about the world's most popular table role playing game... Dungeons and Dragons. When first developed in their basements in the 1970s, creators Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson could not have predicted that by the end of the decade they'd have a TV show, legions of fans and be living in mansions, all whilst creating a moral "satanic panic" across America.
