Sidequesting

4.7/5

Critic Rating

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.

"While not every character we meet is likeable, they all feel realistic and interact with Rion in interesting ways. No two episodes feel the same, even while the show keeps a familiar tone and feeling. Overall, Sidequesting is a fun adventure story about what we miss along the journey. I would recommend it to fans of Inn Between or We Fix Space Junk."

"The word I use most to describe Sidequesting is ‘delightful’. Each episode focuses not only on Rion helping people, but also people they meet helping out others in their community. It’s a wholesome, family-friendly show, focused on kindness, friendship, and exploration."

Michael Bergonzi • Audio Drama Reviews Jun 12, 2020

"...light-hearted and fun...This may be a fantasy world, but the focus isn’t on the originality of the setting. The fact Tal Minear can write from experience in a fantasy world is great for people who want to understand the mindset of someone in a minority. It’s the first step, but a necessary one in today’s divisive climate. Where this story truly shines is with creating empathy for a marginalized group in a way children can enjoy and adults can learn from."
