Taking Initiative is a Dungeons & Dragons 5e actual-play podcast.  The game is primarily centered around the storytelling and role-playing, but it certainly doesn't shy away from the humor, both in and out of game.  The DM and players range from beginners to veterans, giving it a wide spectrum for both the group and its audience. Podcast episodes release every other Monday.
