What Is Kill Every Monster?

We are an award-winning Dungeons and Dragons podcast about every monster in the manual.  

Why Monsters?

Dungeons & Dragons is many things to many people, but at its heart lies a system that rewards players for killing monsters. In each episode, we examine the lore of classic D&D creatures and ask a central question: are they really a monster?

What Is The Show About?

On Kill Every Monster, we are joined by a guest for a DM-deep-dive into the creature catalog of Dungeons and Dragons. The first part is a discussion, and the second is a one-shot actual play encounter where our guest takes on the role of the monster.

Each episode is a contained story, so you never have to worry about being caught up or listening out of order. Pick any creature you like and dive right in.

Kill Every Monster is free to anywhere you get your podcasts. The show is supported by listeners like you via Patreon where you can get ad-free versions of each episode a week early, and Patreon-exclusive bonus episodes like our DM Notes and and Cutting Room Floor series.

Kill Every Monster won three Audioverse Awards in 2022: Best Players (Mimic and Aboleth) and Best Improvised Production.
