Dave and Matthew from Effekt share recordings of their home games. If you seek a polished improvised adventure, with professional actors, music and sound effects, look elsewhere. We seek to share the authentic experience, with rules discussions, asides and digressions just as they happened around the dining table. We also try to play RAW so you can learn with us as we try out new games.
 
Your teenage years? A tragedy. But that was long ago. In Roast of Your Teenage Self, host Alise Morales combines tragedy and time to get to the comedy of errors that was your -- and hers -- and everyone’s teenage years. Each episode, Alise and her guest break out some teenage talisman -- whether an old photo, a high school heirloom, or other knick knack associated with adolescent anguish -- and use that as a way in to roast the unique, but somehow universal, tribulations of being a teen.
