Just the thing for the love of RPGs

A conversation that feels like you're in the middle of. Exploring all things RPGs from a positive platform, looking to not only broaden the world for the audience, but for Scott himself. GREAT GUESTS!

SGreenwell ,

A delightful show!

RPG University has quickly become one of my 'go to' weekly podcasts, thanks to the hosting job by Scott and the quality of the guests. It's delightful to hear both parties get in-depth on the various games, and they do a good job of balancing staying on the topic of the game and exploring the branches that came up naturally from the discussion. Highly recommend!

F&G Podcast ,

Sharing the joy of RPGs!

Great conversations with enthusiastic fans! A nice mix of facts and personal experiences giving a succinct portrait of all kinds of different Role Playing Games. Whether the topic is a game you love, or one you've never heard of, once an episode is done, you immediately want to dive in to that game!
