Great podcast

In an ideal world I would play every single RPG out there; but in reality that's impossible. I just don't have that kind of time so I have to be extra judicious in my choice of games. That's why Character Creation Cast has become one of my favorite podcasts. Their informative and in-depth dive into the character creation process of RPGs is a fantastic way to judge whether or not a specific game is for me. I decided to try Traveller and Blades in the Dark just because of them. On the same note, I don't really like the episodes where the creator of the game is also a guest. They can't be objective or critical of the game they're discussing, so it ends up feeling a lot like a promotion. Most episodes are not like that, however, and so most guest are great at pointing both what makes a game great but also what makes it flawed. That makes for the most interesting discussions, imo. I strongly recommend the show.

The Nicest Show I Listen To

Character Creation Cast is both extremely chill and listenable and full of useful insights into games and the character creation process. Amelia and Ryan manage to wrangle some of the most interesting guests into deep, meaningful discussions on the games they are passionate about. The process of making characters and their advice on certain aspects of playing rpgs are some of the most useful and actionable advice I’ve ever heard for players. I really love this show.

This show man...

This really is the best. Character evolution cast can stand on it own. The episode with James D’Amato should be required cited in the introduction of the PHB 6e. I've picked up almost all of the live plays they have had on as a guest. The others I was already listening to.
