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

For the week ending December 7, 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!

 

The larger picture begins to come into focus as the party plunges headlong into the waiting darkness.

 

Here’s the link: Episode 184: Lance Lance Retribution

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:

The yaruk stampede pushes the heroes deeper into the dangerous depths of the Castrovelian jungle!

 

Tune in to Episode 35: War Figs

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 already two episodes deep into their actual play and review of Call of Cthulhu from Chaosium, and plan to play, review, and compare all of its various spin offs afterwards!

Tune in this week as our heroes discover the terrible truths of “The Darkness Beneath the Hill”. Can their minds withstand the knowledge?! Put down that copy of the Necronomicon and tune your RCA Westinghouse to WHP-28 for this week’s episode of “Call of Cthulhu”.

 

Here it is: Episode 10!

 

4 Titans of All’Terra

Titans of All’Terra

The Titans of All’Terra is a podcast brought to you by Joshua Lorimer of Sneak Attack! fame.  This DnD 5e actual play podcast is brand spanking new, so get in on the ground floor now!  It is also 100% family friendly, so round up the kids and make this a family event.  This week’s episode’s synopsis:

Reports of wizard attacks have stirred up some trouble in the Four Kingdoms.  Winnie and Bordu have been arrested!  Relnor, Joan, and Dalfin head to the High Captain’s office to see what’s going on.

Here is Episode 7: A Girl and Her Orc!

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 34: The One With The Mummy Fight.  Here’s the synopsis:

Welcome Pathfinders! The undead onslaught continues as the Doorkeepers face their greatest challenge yet and soon come to realize that, perhaps for the first time, they may truly be outmatched…

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

Happy listening!
