The Campaign Trail


The Campaign Trail is a Dungeons and Dragons podcast where the quest is to win a general election!

Join our team of fantastical adventurers as they head to marginal constituencies and face puzzles, monsters, intrigue and maybe even a dungeon and a dragon.

Exit polls. Sorcery. Economic policy. Ancient curses.

It’s like no other D&D game you’ve ever heard.
