Hello from the Magic Tavern gave Dear Dark Lord a shout out on their 11/06/17 episode, titled "Pulcifer the Unassuming." Listen to the entire episode below. The web series shout out (i.e. the part where I smiled like a dumb child and then numerous victory fist pumps) comes at minute 20. 

Thanks, Arnie, for reading out my entire email and playing along with my dumb jokes. For real, it was very sweet. And it was great to get a moment of recognition from a Chicago-grown podcast phenomenon.

If you aren't listening to Hello from the Magic Tavern, you should be. And if you haven't watched our teaser yet, may the Dark Lord consume your soul.

Dear Dark Lord Featured in Stareable Newsletter


The teaser for Dear Dark Lord was featured in last week's newsletter after our trailer won their weekend pitch party. We racked up them sweet, sweet likes for our trailer on facebook in order to secure the victory, making Stareable the second institution to recognize us pre release. Wow!

Thanks for the shoutout, Stareable — and thanks to everyone who liked the trailer on facebook.

In their own words, "Stareable is the largest community of web series creators and fans," and they are "building the future of television through collaboration and discovery." Seems pretty cool to us!

Stay tuned for more updates! Editor extraordinaire Ryan Eakins has been piecing together the 'sodes, and he told me that they're pretty tasty!

We love content!

Matt Besser Shouts Out Dear Dark Lord

Upright Citizens Brigade founding member Matt Besser gave Dear Dark Lord a shout out on a recent episode of improv4humans — his improv comedy podcast. While plugging our benevolent website providers, Squarespace, Besser showcased our website as an example of what you can do with the Squarespace platform. 

Thanks, Matt, for saying our name with your mouth!


We also appreciate that you said that even if our web series ends up sucking, our website looks good.

Listen to the i4h episode below. The Dear Dark Lord shoutout comes at 38:02, but we encourage you to listen to the whole episode — especially if you are an improviser or improv fan who likes when rules are flagrantly broken. Or if you just enjoy funny shit.

UPDATE: Due to bullshit, this improv4humans episode is no longer available for free on the internet, so we cannot embed it here. I don't really wanna give more buzz marketing to the platform that now houses the archives for this episode — but if you happen to know it, you can go hear our little shout out there.
