What to Listen to this Weekend: The 5 Best RPG Podcasts
For the week ending December 14, 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
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!
A headless rider threatens to end the party’s journey through the depths of the frozen tomb!
Here’s the link: Episode 185: Dead Head Redemption.
2 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:
In the shadow of an ancient monument, an unknown force lures Meisyun and Pigi towards a mesmerizing predator.
Tune in to Episode 36: Lure, Serious Wounds.
3 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 three 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!
Will Hank and Aidan escape the coils of the serpent priest? Can they find Josh in time? 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 11!
4 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:
The gang reunites at the Grey Temple only to find it in chaos. Dah’ve tells them the history of the strange glyphs and shares a secret with Joan.
Here is Episode 8: A New Perspective
5 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 Back Alley Battle. Here’s the synopsis:
Welcome Pathfinders! Our heroes escort Onuris’ mother to the safety of the temple where they learn the extent of the danger facing Wati. However before they can move on to their own concerns they have a mystery to investigate, one that only leads to new questions…
Enjoy the episode here, and tell them NoE sent you!
