Don't just read about D&D's latest news and announcements -- listen to them as well! And where better to find inside information than from the very halls of Wizards of the Coast. Presenting Episode 30: D&D for the Holidays.

In this episode, we wander the halls of Wizards of the Coast asking our co-workers how exactly did they end up here? With the holidays fast approaching, we wanted to know if a special package under the tree got their start in the world of Dungeons & Dragons.

R&D’s Chris Youngs, Peter Schaefer, Andy Collins and James Wyatt, plus Brand’s Kierin Chase and Shelly Mazzanoble all tell their tales—discussing the strange confluence of older brothers, JRR Tolkien, and holiday presents. Plus, Kierin explains why Hermey the elf isn’t the only dentist involved in holiday gift-giving.

About the Host

Bart Carroll is loathsome beyond description and has no redeeming features. His body resembles that of a huge, bloated buffalo and gives off an offensive odor. The author's neck is long and thin, and perched atop it is a big head uglier than that of a warthog. His legs are thick and stumpy, much like a hippopotamus. The author's tail is strong and snakey, however, and moves with amazing swiftness to strike enemies.
