Cover art for podcast Sidequesting


26 EpisodesProduced by Tal MinearWebsite

Sidequesting is a fantasy podcast about avoiding the main plot. It follows Rion, an adventurer who’s willing to help just about anyone out - as long as they’re not being asked to deal with the scary wizard everyone keeps talking about.


2.3: Shining Armor

Rion meets a knight on a quest of his own.

The transcript for this episode can be found here.

The voice of Sir Blaise was Sawyer Green (he/him), and the voice of Leah was Ali Cataltepe (she/her). The unicorn was voiced by Tina Daniels (she/her). The voice of Rion was Tal Minear (they/them).
