Best Actual Play Podcast out there- hands down

This podcast is incredible! The cast of talent improvisers, variety of gaming systems (including indie systems), new episodes on a reliable schedule, and charming host makes this show my go to gaming podcast. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found myself laughing out loud at funny moments in the adventures. You should especially listen to the Numenera episodes and for something more serious, the L5R episodes.

The Best Actual Play Out There

Listen, I love D&D. However, let's be honest, there are enough D&D podcasts. Furthermore, a lot of them end up sounding very, very similar. On the other hand, One Shot is different with every single adventure, showcases a variety of playstyles and, best of all, showcases a bunch of really cool systems, most of which you probably don't know. If you want to become a better player, GM, improviser, or just more knowledgable about the world of tabletop roleplaying games, One Shot is for you!

P.S. My group played Everyone Is John because of this show, and now my life is 63% better.

Gold Standard of Actual Play

I only have so much space in my listening schedule for actual plays, but One Shot has never left the rotation. Between the variety of games and the professionalism of everyone involved, I never have to wonder whether the next series is going to be worth listening to - it always is.
