Now, the group dominates Thursday nights on Twitch, have billboards in the middle of Los Angeles, and have breathed a new life into Dungeons & Dragons. This week, we talk about the power of Critical Role and how it launched a wave of RPG table tops streams, how it gives back to the communities around them through charitable work, and how it's broken down stereotypes and gates that have kept so many away from role-playing games.
