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

For the week ending December 28, 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!

 

Physically and mentally impaired, the party returns to the mountain tomb seeking vengeance against the corpse of a false giant hero.

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:

Meisyun and Dax must fight off a horrifying infection as a creature stalks the party deep within the jungle.

 

Tune in to Episode 38: Figment of Your Insemination.

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.

Kyrus and T’huacli need to keep their eyes wide shut as they maneuver through the opulent party of the debauched Matrux Karamag. Will they manage to finagle the key away undetected or will they join their friend in the cells of the Hanging Prison?

 

Here it is: Episode 13!

 

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:

Titans are in Lestraad!  Winnie tries leading her parents to safety.  Dalfin and Relnor try to help the monks.  Joan goes toe to toe with a monster upon the wondering mountain.

Here is Episode 10: A New Perspective Part 3

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 37: The One With All the Saffron.  Here’s the synopsis:

Welcome Pathfinders! Having located the entrance into the lair of the Silver Chain our heroes push forward and wont let anything distract them… except perhaps for fine spices and ancient treasures!

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

Happy listening!
