Can I Listen to Dimension 20 as a Podcast?

On Dropout, there's a podcast version of all the seasons without video. However, if you want to semi-listen to a video episode, you can do that, as the Dropout app supports background listening. Just start a video episode on your phone and lock your screen. You can still listen to a video episode without watching. And if you want to double back and watch a part that sounded exciting, you can do that, too.

Do I Need to Know How to Play D&D to Watch Dimension 20?

The answer is no. You don't need to know how to play D&D to watch Dimension 20. An excellent way to learn is by watching Fantasy High, where Ally Beardsley, one of the core cast members, had never played D&D before, so Brennan had to explain some things, and through Ally's experience, we all benefit.

A more recent way to learn D&D is by watching the much shorter Dungeons and Drag Queens season, which introduced drag queens to D&D. It is Four episodes long and will give you a good base understanding of how to play the game and some core mechanics.

Do I Need to Watch Dimension 20 in Order?

No, you do not need to watch Dimension 20 in order. The show is an anthology series, and most seasons of the show can be viewed independently from others.

Only a handful of the seasons are explicit sequels to others; in that case, you should watch those specific seasons in order. For example, The Unsleeping City and The Unsleeping City Chapter II. And Fantasy High, Fantasy High: Sophomore Year, and Fantasy High: Junior Year.

Is Dimension 20 Scripted?

Dimension 20 is not scripted. The only person around the table with plans for what's coming next is the DM, but the entire session is pure improv.

The Adventuring Party episodes are a good indicator of how much the players were excited and surprised by how things went during the episode. It's easy to decide something is scripted if that's the type of show you've always watched. Playing D&D around your local table is also not scripted - Dimension 20 is the same, only with cameras and mics rolling.
