Rolling Misadventures is an improvised collaborative audio fiction podcast. Originally starting as an actual play podcast using the tabletop game Fiasco, Rolling Misadventures quickly evolved by utilizing audio fiction sound design elements. This blend gives tabletop banter that most TTRPG podcasts are known for, but also sets it apart with immersive narrative scenes.

As we focus on shorter story arcs, within two episodes, this allows us to hop between multiple genres. We’ve been able to play within a wild west soap opera, an ‘80s drug heist drama, and a sci-fi future clone murder mystery. The shorter story arcs and wide range of genres means that listeners can hop in at any point.

    Themis Rising - Act 01

    Olly and Dennis are two, fairly inept, science engineers on Sorbot Space Station. After they make a quick round of checks to prepare for an upcoming audit, and accidently ruin the reactor core, Kaz shows up with a brand new android to help out with things.


    Once the new ship AI makes a quick scan of the area, to notice the ruined reactor, the crew quickly realizes that there may be a bigger threat as Olly has started to mutate.


    Will the space station hold out until after the audit is finished? Will Olly adjust to his brand new leathery wings? Can any of this really make sense? Find out as we dive into a playset that mashes over a dozen settings together to create a brand new sci-fi story.

    The Sound of Fiasco - Act 02

    The initial critic reviews are in and the show could be a success. As we reach opening night, the crew doubles down on Radford's last minute song and double doses on the face powder drug. While finding enough cannon dogs for the show, a local animal protest starts to form outside of the venue. Can our performers keep everything going smooth or will this show go up in flames? Find out as we finish up our rock opera inspired story arc.

Whose Line is it Anyway meets RPG

What a fun ride! I often find myself needing an emotional break from serious RPG podcasts and searching for something fun, and, I think that search is over. These people are really flippin good at improv roleplaying and I want to laugh with them and learn from them!

Great intro to actual plays

Okay, so I've listened to a bunch of "actual play TTRPG podcasts." And while I love them, it's often hard to tell if people with zero TTRPG experience will enjoy them. Not here! The short, contained stories (usually 2 episodes) and narrative structure of the game they are playing make this show a GREAT way to test the waters with your buddy who do far only listens to news and "two to three friends talking" shows.

Plus this show is, ya know, good.

The Misery Machine ,

Excellent find! We came across your show on IG and decided to give it a listen - very glad we did! The hosts are a breath of fresh air and a joy to listen to - the topics are interesting and bingeworthy. Keep up the great work - cannot wait to binge more content <3 Yergy & Drewby
