The Sword & The Stoner: Season The First
February 21, 2020 8:06 AM - Subscribe

The Sword & The Stoner is an audio drama about a modern day, stoner comedy adaptation of the King Arthur legends. But instead of a legendary King and his Court Sorcerer, somehow 2019 ended up with an average-at-best stoner and an over-the-top reality TV magician. Join Arthur and Merlin as they try to get stoned enough to forget their destiny, even as it comes for them with a vengeance.

Did this podcast originate from the joke in the title? Probably. Does it transcend the one-joke premise ("What if a modern King Arthur was kind of a burnout loser?")? Absolutely.

The voice talent is amazing, with every character distinctive and immediately recognizable in their Arthurian archetype. And the writing keeps the story moving (kind of a problem in creator Marissa Tandon's previous podcast, Super Ordinary) while letting the jokes land.
