Critical Role Cast Recommendations from Signal Boost! – Glorious Goods for the Holidays

Critical Role is Geek & Sundry’s live Dungeons & Dragons show, featuring Dungeon Master Matthew Mercer and his troupe of fellow voice actors. Catch them every Thursday night at 7:00 PM PT on the Geek & Sundry Twitch channel and on AlphaSignal Boost! is our love letter to all fandoms, be it books, podcasts, indie games, Etsy shops, soundtracks, websites, or events.

Need something to tide you over during the Critical Role hiatus and you’re stumped on what to get your friends for the holidays? Vox Machina is here to rescue you!

Catch up on past Signal Boost! episodes hosted by the Critical Role cast to get both holiday ideas and get to know a little more about the people behind your favorite Dungeons & Dragons characters. All of their episodes are filled with favorites handpicked by themselves, so you won’t find a better way to learn something new about the people you enjoy spending time with on Thursday nights.

Laura Bailey

Laura stopped by Signal Boost! with Travis Willingham, and the pair were shown around by Marisha Ray as she took them on a tour of things they’ve never seen at Geek & Sundry before. (If you think you can’t be surprised by Signal Boost! anymore, this episode proves you wrong.)

Laura tells you all about her favorite urban fantasy novels, a beloved video game called Child of Light, and gives tips for how to shop at a flea market for fun and profit. Who knows what one-of-a-kind gifts you might find there?

Ashley Johnson

If you’ve got a bookworm on your shopping list, check out Ashley’s episode of Signal Boost! for some authors and titles you might have otherwise missed. Among her favorite titles are the Bitch Planet comics, a coming-of-age novel series, and a sublime book of poetry.

This episode is also a bit of a hilarious love letter to fellow Vox Machina member and Signal Boost! host, Taliesin Jaffe.

Taliesin Jaffe

Signal Boost! viewers were treated to a few episodes with Taliesin at the helm, as he shared everything from his favorite books and bands to annual gatherings of Santas. You’ll hear all about the website Atlas Obscura, which has companion books and calendars that make the perfect gift, want to binge-read the Wicked + Divine comic book series (also great gifts), and learn about goth awareness.

Liam O’Brien

If you or someone on your holiday list want to get into voice acting, check out Liam’s episode of Signal Boost! for resources that can help you on your journey. Liam also recommends a classic movie that would make for a cozy night in this winter, Kenneth Branagh’s Henry V, and a graphic novel for comic book fans who seem to have it all.

This episode also has some of the most wacky moments in Signal Boost! history, so watch it any time of year when you need a laugh.

Marisha Ray

Marisha isn’t just the original host of Signal Boost!; she’s also written episodes and works as the show’s producer. She’s boosted amazing comics like Rat Queens, non-fiction books like Me, Myself, and Why, and gifts for geeks like video game art shadow boxes.

Check out Marisha’s picks not just for gift ideas, but to learn more about yourself and the world around you.
