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

For the week ending December 21, 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!

 

Attempting to follow the urgings of an animated dwarven skull, the party’s progress through the mountain tomb is suddenly cut short.

 

Here’s the link: Episode 186: Curse Your Enthusiasm.

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 search of the area surrounding the Rune Obelisk reveals clues to its past significance, but as their jungle trek continues, the party soon realizes they are not alone in the wilderness.

 

Tune in to Episode 37: Eat.  Prey.  Love.

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.

This week, the Fortunes Untold gang sets out on a kaleidoscopic journey through the world of Overlight by Renegade Games.

Join our heroes as they travel from distant lands all the way from the Sea of Stars to the jungles of Quill making their way to the market world of Haark.

 

Here it is: Episode 12!

 

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:

The party is split.  Winnie heads for home, Relnor goes to talk with Captain Harris, Dalfin sees about the monks, and Joan lies unconscious on the floor of the grey temple.  All the while, monsters roams the streets of Lestraad!

Here is Episode 9: A New Perspective Part 2

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 36: The One Where They Meet Qasin.  Here’s the synopsis:

Welcome Pathfinders! Having found signs of that their old foe, the Silver Chain, might be involved in this undead madness our heroes begin to investigate, but soon learn from a new ally that an old friend is in desperate need of their help. Can they make it in time?

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

Happy listening!
