The best there is

Absolute best-in-class actual play podcast. You won’t find a better or more thoughtful GM than Austin Walker, and the players are all incredible.

Be sure to check their twitter for a guide on where to start, if you’re intimidated by backlog. My two cents is that I started with COUNTER/Weight and fell in love with it, and that Marielda is one of the best pieces of collaborative storytelling I’ve ever heard.

The BEST

Okay so if you have trouble focusing for long periods of time, this podcast MIGHT not be for you. BUT I started off as someone who has a hard time getting invested in something with long episodes (I’m talking “needs to be playing three different games on three different devices to be able to sit through a 20 minute sitcom episode”), and now when I see an episode upload from this group and it’s less than 2 hours I’m like, “aw, I wish there was a little more to listen to”

EXCEPT: There is ALWAYS a little more to listen to because this podcast has a few different plotlines and they’re all GREAT and you should listen to them ALL. It took me about three weeks of absolute dedication to get caught up on the Hieron arc, and I’m trying to digest the sci-fi stuff more slowly so that I don’t run out of stuff to listen to. BUT it’s so good I’m already thinking about relistening and learning things about the ingame universes that I missed before. IT’S THAT GOOD!

The Friends are all so creative and funny and they work SO hard to make a good show, and they’ve totally succeeded. Even better, you can tell how much FUN they all have creating it. SO GOOD!
