Best TTRPG podcast

For me, simply the best TTRPG podcast there is. Informative, irreverent and insightful. The hosts have a great repartee and are clearly good friends IRL.

Mr Ian Stead

I am very new to Podcasts... Just started this one and one other. I thought I would not like them, 'eck I was wrong. I am so loving this, it has really cheered me up and re-egnited my mojo, that has been lacking in the last 2 months. It's fun, informative and nice to hear people I know only via emails and FB. It certainly helps pass the boring time on my little p/t job in the early mornings (4am eek!) The inormation is very useful as I am a freelancer the industry,,,
Keep it up people and I have a lot to catch up with.

The only place for RPG News

An excellent and hilarious take on the latest RPG news, our favourite game in all the world (about the latest RPG Kickstarters) and with insightful guests from across the industry. I’m so glad I found this podcast and get to hang out with the hosts and fans on Discord.

Also the sketches are hilarious.
