    Ludonarrative Dissidents Season 3 preview: Hole in the Sky – Dungeon Crawl Classics

    Ludonarrative Dissidents Season 3 preview: Hole in the Sky – Dungeon Crawl Classics

    The Kickstarter for season 3 of the Ludonarrative Dissidents podcast is now live! Back it today to help us fund another full season of this podcast.

    The Lady in Blue, a mysterious figure of cosmic power, enlists a band of simple peasants for a strange task. They are to follow an invisible bridge until they arrive at a hole in the sky – and then jump through. Death awaits all but the bravest, strongest, and luckiest, but the Lady offers a reward beyond all the riches of the world: the chance to change the very stars these peasants were born under, and thus change their destiny.

    We’re reviewing our first adventure for this season! We played it as the finale of last season and now you can hear what we think of the adventure as a published scenario.

    The Mixed Six: Hot Takes on Ice – The Flash

    The Mixed Six: Hot Takes on Ice – The Flash

    The Flash is a spectacularly bad movie. Caleb, Spencer, and I got together to discuss exactly WHY it was so bad. I was part of a podcast called The Mixed Six for nearly 6 years. I had a blast making it and I’m proud of the episodes we made. It ended a year ago, but we came back together recently to record a reunion special episode. This is Hot Takes on Ice, a shorter podcast we did on a single take. I’m sharing it here because I think if you missed the Mixed Six when we were making on a regular basis, now is the perfect time to binge the series. I’ve mirrored the entire catalogue of the podcast on archive.org so you can listen to regular episodes, formerly Patreon-exclusive episodes, and mini episodes like Hot Takes on Ice. We’ll have a full new episode out on Monday.

    Don’t forget to back The Night Clerk on Backerkit today! A full color 44 page scenario zine of architectural horror!

Awesome podcast

I've been listening since it first started, years ago. It's great, the variety between different systems is awesome, and the overall cast is great.

Miss the “skits”

I found this podcast on Google (sorry Apple) and it has the older stuff. I loved the content until it suddenly switch format from parodies and skits to just another podcast of hosts talking. Went from something unique and funny to dime a dozen podcast format.

RPPR Something for everyone, and everything great quality

I started listening a few years ago because of some specific content that I was interested in. I have gone on to consume their entire library. There is enough variety to spark interest, and everything is good enough quality that you will find yourself enjoying things you would not have thought to listen to previously. On top of that, they have a good cast that plays well together and is interesting in their own right.
