Praise for Ethan Gilsdorf

Just the other day, Ethan Gilsdorf shared the video of his TED Talk, Why Dungeons & Dragons is Good For You (In Real Life).  I have watched it several times and and applaud every time.  He has spoken to the world what I want to tell all around me.  Especially those that shun it and those that don’t know me because I’m too “in the closet” about this wonderful thing in my life.

Right after I read his book, Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks: An Epic Quest for Reality Among Role Players, Online Gamers, and Other Dwellers of Imaginary Realms, I posted my 2010 blog post about the game that I relayed here again in 2015.

I’m glad his message was short enough so that most will watch to the conclusion but deep in my heart, I know there is at least another 40 minutes more that he could have expanded on.

I do love what Acquisitions Inc, Critical Role (although I have only watched a small amount) and many podcasts (Critical Hit, The Adventure Zone, Board with Life and others) are doing for the game.

I praise Ethan because he has risen to the top and shouted to the world what is good and wholesome about this misunderstood tool of understanding.
