  • Summary

  • Alice Levine presents Very Modern Quests - a role-playing game set in the excruciating awkwardness of the real world. 

    In each episode one celebrity will become the protagonist in a choose-their-own adventure game with a difference; no goblins, no elves, just the nitty gritty of everyday life and no idea what’s about to happen. 

    Join Quest Master Alice Levine as she guides our guests through an everyday adventure with the help of character comedian Emma Sidi, embodying the everyday individuals we’d rather avoid.

It's just dead funny init

Everything Alice Levine is involved in is an automatic 10/10 in my book, and this is no exception. Her presenting is top shelf and she just seems like such a nice person!

Have recommended to everyone I know today hahaha.
I mean, how could I not? The writing is fantastic, Emma Sidi does a great job bringing the characters to life and those guests?! Amazing line up.

Personal highlights include the origin of Garry, Gary and Gari's nicknames, and learning that Greg James sleeps like Pooh Bear. In a top and no knicks! Scandalous stuff.

Hope there are more quests on the horizon 🤞🏼

Laugh out loud content

In the saturated podcast market this is a truly original idea. Really funny, hope they make more.

Crying with laughter

The best podcast I've listen to on a very long time. Every episode had we laughing out loud in public like a crazy person

I must have missed the funny bit

Why is everyone else writing that this is funny?
I'm glad this book was free as I gave up after the 1st episode.

solid entertainment

Each episode length is perfect for funny listening while walking the dog! The rapport Alice Levine has with each guest makes it much more entertaining than it otherwise would be and the character acting and improv is hilarious! I was just sad it didn't have more episodes!

Fun idea well executed

While the cast of comics are all a bit Taskmaster, this series is none the worse for it. It is engaging and amusing and I look forward to hearing more.

Great craic.

Listened to them all a couple of days. Really funny. Alice on form as always. Rose Matafeo’s quest was delightful.

Excruciatingly poor format

Made little to no sense and made even funny likable celebs like Greg James sound dull and awkward. I hope Alice is being paid well for her to stick with it.

Definitely worth a listen

I just want to say first of all this is nothing like D&D and it genuinely annoyed me throughout how they kept referring back to it. It's improv, can they just say it's improv?!

Aside from that I love Alice and genuinely laughed out loud in a few of the episodes. Entertaining and worth a listen, especially the Rose ep.

This is episode 3.

This is episode 3. It is excellent. Episode 2 is in episode 3's place. If you like you can listen to them whatever order you like.

Well done Alice and Emma!

All of the participants were a joy, especially Emma Sidi who runs the NPC’s. And I was delighted to find Alice has a true talent for storytelling. A DM after my own heart

Absolutely Hilarious!

This is absolutely great! Been a fan of Alice and her humor for a long time, and this entire ensemble is an absolute treat!
