What to Listen to this Weekend: The 5 Best RPG Podcasts

For the week ending June 1, 2018

There is a glut of great RPG podcasts out there for nerds. So many, in fact, that it’s hard to know where to begin! But we’ve got you. These four podcasts are the best of the bunch, and should be at the top of your weekend listening list.

Then we have a rotating 5th slot where we’ll highlight a podcast that had a particularly great episode on something related to one of our favorite RPG systems. It could be news, reviews, DM tips, or it could just be a particularly good episode.

Tune in to hear what you’re missing!

What to Listen to this Weekend


The Glass Cannon Podcast

What is the Glass Cannon Podcast? Well, in the spirit of old school Dungeons and Dragons, a collection of five super-nerds (Joe O’Brien, Grant Berger, Matthew Capodicasa, Skid Maher, and Game Master Troy Lavallee) emerge blinking from their parents’ basements to engage in an Actual Play campaign of Paizo’s epic new Pathfinder adventure path, Giantslayer!

This week’s synopsis:

While hailstones mercilessly rain down upon the escaped slaves, the heroes struggle to survive as the cliffside battle comes to its thrilling conclusion.

Here’s the link: Episode 157 – I’ll Hag What She’s Hagging.

Androids and Aliens

The aforementioned GCP crew take to the stars in an all new campaign in Paizo’s newest system: Starfinder. As a direct result of the Patreon support for Glass Cannon, they’re working through the Dead Suns AP in an all new podcast, and they’ve brought along a new cast member, Ellinor Dilorenzo!

This week’s synopsis:

A mysterious invitation leads to a strange meeting and a possible new mission for the Starfinders.

AnA continues to deliver excellence in Episode 8 – Opportunity EOX.

Sneak Attack!

The Sneak Attack Podcast is a D&D 5e campaign that is set in Brannis, a world DM Reid imagined and designed himself. Sneak Attack is one of the more light-hearted, joyful podcasts on the Internet. In fact, its the only podcast in our standard four that doesn’t come with an E for explicit, and we love them all the more for it.

This week’s synopsis:

This is the last episode of Sneak Attack! Vol. 1, and we could not be more thankful to all of our amazing fans who helped us get to this point. It’s because of your amazing faithful dedication that the story of the Heroes of Highrock is worth telling, and all of you have played a special part in getting to the finale. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it for you.

Sneak Attack! ends the first season of their campaign in Episode 156 – The End, Part 3.

Don’t worry, they’ll be back soon with season 2!!


The Called Shot Podcast

The Called Shot Podcast is playing through the official Skull and Shackles Adventure Path from Paizo. Called Shot includes all the gloriously dense Pathfinder RPG rules but presents them in a swashbuckling pirate adventure!

This week’s synopsis:

It’s a. little something different this week and next. Join the crew this week as they are hot on the trail!

So much fun I’m sure we’re in violation of some maritime laws…here is Episode 43 – Hot on the Trail

Critical Role

For our rotating fifth slot this week, we might as well point to the most popular live play podcast out there: Critical Role. The sheer length of Critical Role episodes means that large swaths of humanity simply don’t have time to consume it all, but for those who do, may we suggest the beginning of season 2? The synopsis:

In Wildemount, seven adventurers coalesce in a tavern before finding themselves drawn to a mysterious circus…
