Jacob Aremark ,

A super high quality, authentic, back to the roots realplay podcast

What makes this podcast stand out is not the 1000 voices (and moods) of the out-of-this-world GM, and the amazing creativity of the players and their ability to run with whatever ball they are being thrown, but the fact, that these guys are genuinely just a group of really good friends having a blast!
It’s a great story, really high quality audio, great music - and it’s also a bunch of guys goofing around in some basement.
Unlike many of the more “professional" realplay podcasts, I really feel, that these guys are doing this because they want to, and I just happen to be listening in - and that makes the whole difference!

A great podcast run by great people

Over the last two years or so i have returned time and time again to this amazing podcast, whether it is to re-listen to old podcasts or to find out what happens to our favourite boys.

I truly hope PTBP will blow up some day and gain the recognition it deserves.

Greetings from cold and miserable Denmark!
