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

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

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 rejuvenated dullahan interrupts the party’s attempt to fulfill their geas.

Here’s the link: Episode 189: Lance Lance Retribution 2: Lance Like Nobody is Watching.

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:

As a mold storm sweeps across the jungle skies, the party must make quick decisions on how to survive.

Tune in to Episode 40: Baby, It’s Mold Outside.

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 continues their kaleidoscopic journey through the world of Overlight by Renegade Games.

So close! The Skyborn almost broke Shatu Hak out of prison, but nothing ever goes off without a hitch. Can Kyrus and T’haucli defeat the Warden and his goons or is the home court advantage too much for them to overcome?

Here it is: Episode 15!

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:

After a night on the beach, the team makes their way south, encountering a rather quirky character along the way.

Here is Episode 12: A Goat Based Adventure

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 39: The One With all the Strange Laughter.  Here’s the synopsis:

Welcome Pathfinders! The Doorkeeper’s search continues for the missing priest Ptemenib, but now they have to deal with more thugs and their laughing pet! Can the party make another animal friend, or will the Silver Chain have the last laugh?

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

Happy listening!
