My gaming is so much better

Plenty of content providers in the tabletop RPG scene sit around and pontificate about world building, storytelling, combat, rules, editions, and complaints about “bad” GMing or playing. These guys do all that AND entertain the audience with junior high locker room antics. I f#<*^~ LOVE these guys!!!
Seriously, these are a group of men and women for whom RPG fun is Rule #1. RPG players, rightly, demand a good time from their gaming experience. That’s the ongoing theme for this podcast, leading to loads of actionable information in every episode. I recommend it for any RPG game master, judge, dungeon master, or what have you, who seriously intends to run a mutually-satisfying RPG for themselves and their players.

Friends Around a Table Talking RPGs

Dean and the guys are great! I've been listening to the show for years. The various hosts fluctuate every so often, but the talk is always casual and about topics of interest to both referees and players of role-playing games.

Strong Roundtable Discussion Show

Fear the Boot was the first RPG podcast I listened to, and hosted the first gaming convention I ever attended. This show is responsible for my reconnecting with the hobby as an adult, and showed me the first inklings of what an RPG could really be.
Now I'm so deeply entrenched in games I can't imagine my life without them. I've always been deeply enthralled by the hobby, but the scarcity of local players made that fascination a lonely thing. This show was my first affirmation that other people cared about RPGs - enough to make a podcast about it, with decent equipment and sound mixing, even!
Anyone looking for another perspective on what games can do, or even just some fun table stories, should give this show a listen
