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

For the week ending November 16, 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 five podcasts are the best of the bunch, and should be at the top of your weekend listening list.

Tune in to hear what you’re missing!

What to Listen to this Weekend

1 The Glass Cannon Podcast

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 Pathfinder adventure path, Giantslayer!

 

On the brink of total annihilation, the party licks its wounds and regroups for a second chance at two deadly foes.

2 Androids and Aliens

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 stranger may know more that he’s letting on, but the information comes at a dangerous price.

 

Tune in to Episode 32: Singing in the Zane.

3 Fortunes Untold

Fortunes Untold

Fortunes Untold is a show where a group of gamers get together and review different tabletop RPGs. But they don’t just tell you about the games, they show you how they play. The crew tries out the rules, test drives the setting, and at the end of the adventure they hand out Experience Points and see if the system levels up.

They’re currently playing Alternity; a tabletop RPG engine from Sasquatch Games designed for science fiction adventure across a wide range of genres from hard sci-fi to space opera, or post-apocalyptic wastelands to alien conspiracies.  In this week’s episode, they finish their adventure and review the system!

We’re hitting the gas and barrelling to the end of the Thunder Run! Will Doc Turbo and One-Eyed Jack get the vaccine to Gonzo University in time? Or do the Scabland Marauders have other plans for them?

 

Here it is: Episode 7!

 

4 The New Path Podcast

The New Path Podcast

The New Path Podcast is dedicated to the Pathfinder Play Test created by Paizo Publishing, Doomsday Dawn!  The crew began Part Three of Doomsday Dawn this week in Episode 10: Affair at Sombrefell Hall, Part 1.

Join our Game Master Matt as he runs Hannah, Adam, Wes, and Casey through Paizo’s Pathfinder Play Test – Doomsday Dawn!

5 Find the Path Podcast

Find the Path Podcast

We’ve written before about our love for Find the Path, so I’ll point you there.  But the tl;dr version is that it is a live play show that is playing through the Mummy’s Mask Adventure Path for the Pathfinder RPG from Paizo. If you aren’t familiar with Mummy’s Mask, think ancient Egypt and you have the general vibe!

This week they dropped Episode 31: The One With The Date Montage.  Here’s the synopsis:

Welcome Pathfinders! The party has reunited and now have to share some of the revelations that occurred during their time apart! After learning of a new threat to the party our heroes do the only sensible thing… help Sitra get ready for her date with Falto!

Enjoy the episode here, and tell them NoE sent you!

Happy listening!
