Coming off his first podcast, BLANK TAPE, Kurt decided to try his hand at a solo, niche podcast. Thus, Sidekicks & Sidequests was born.
Kurt played his first D&D campaign starting on Halloween Night 2010 using 4th Edition. His first character's name was Otto Von Krieg, human wizard. After college, he fully converted to 5th Edition, and has been running and playing this version of the game since then (roughly 2015).
