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.


2.4: What Goes Around Comes Around

Rion helps a friend run an errand, but they both get a little carried away visiting the neighborhood.

Because this episode takes place on a rainy day, it has more background noise than usual. The transcript for this episode can be found here.
