What is The Ordinary Epic?

The Ordinary Epic is an original audio drama, sound designed and scored by industry professionals, with stories that span both our world and a shared imaginary one that tabletop role-playing games make possible. How does one world bleed into and affect the other? What can you express as an imaginary character that you’re not able to as your “real” self? An epic, heartwarming, and playful game-based romp through both sides of the looking glass.

You can listen to the show at theordinaryepic.com! You can also find us wherever you listen to podcasts, including iTunes, Google Podcasts, and most other podcatchers.

Production & Expenses

The Ordinary Epic is created and written by Brandon M. Crose and executive produced by Jordan Stillman. Our crew includes Technical Producer Brad Smith, Composer Tiven Weinstock, Graphic Designer Hailey Thurrott, and Visual Designer Sangjun Lee, with additional music and music editing by Bradley Jordan, and audio by Matthew Lightbound. Each episode of season one was directed by Stephanie LeBolt and features the voice talents of Rachel Belleman, Caitlin Gjerdrum, Brandon Green, Michael Hisamoto, and Eliott Purcell.

The Ordinary Epic’s first season is entirely complete and will be released every other Monday starting April 15th.

Season 1 was produced mostly out of pocket; everyone involved made a giant leap of faith on this show for very little money because they believed in telling these stories with these characters. For future seasons, we’d love to be able to more fairly compensate our extraordinary cast and crew for their hard work, but also pay hosting fees, market the show, and in general just keep this adventure going. With your help, we can recoup some of our expenses on season one and confidently begin work on future seasons. Even as little as a dollar a month makes a huge difference.
