Dungeons + Drama Nerds

Dungeons + Drama Nerds is a podcast produced by Todd Brian Backus, Percy Hornak, and Nicholas Orvis, three dramaturgs interested in the intersection of theatre and tabletop role-playing games (TTRPGs). In the summer of 2019, they decided to take a break from sitting in the corner of rehearsal asking 'But why?' and turn a Twitter thread into reality. Dungeons + Drama Nerds is mixed and edited by Anthony Sertel Dean.


Each season will feature three different TTRPG systems alternating between Actual Play and Commentary episodes. As our players explore these adventures we’ll dissect what sorts of storytelling each system fosters. In our first season we’ll be examining Dungeons & Dragons, Apocalypse World, and Paranoia.

Episodes release weekly on Wednesday.

Eye to Eye:
        The Digital Renaissance Podcast

Eye to Eye serves as a window into the projects happening within the Digital Renaissance Project and a chronicle of the work being created when children and adults work eye to eye at Andy's Summer Playhouse. I interview various members of the Andy's community, both youth and adult artists, and share their stories as well as our findings about making art in the time of COVID-19.

Season 1 is available on Spotify.
