    Mutants in the Now: The Russian Job

    Sponsor: ARBCo, the creator of Mutants in the Now, is currently Kickstarting its first supplement, Mutants in the Next. This book adds a lot of new options to the game, including human mutants, wild mutations, and more exciting player options like new species, weird psionics, fighting styles, and more! You can get both books by backing this Kickstarter. Check out the campaign now to learn more.

    Mutant animals live in the shadows, scavenging and stealing what they need to survive. One team, the Pit Stops, gets a job to steal a package from a shipping company. The money is too good to turn down, but there's more to this simple heist than meets the eye.

This should be actual FM radio instead...

This podcast has range if I've ever seen it. These folk really make it fun for not only themselves but the listener too!

Pros: range of games I've never even heard of, great humor, amazing collaborative story telling

Cons: it can be hit or miss with audio quality, (especially the early ones) also it's hard to follow an arc that you like

Overall though, probably the best actual play podcast I can think of.

Great podcast

Great group of players who had humor and drama. The delta green games are the best of the actual plays out there

RPG in real life!

Love these, those some are a bit long for a single sitting. I have read a few reviews complaining about loud noises from the table. They clearly have never gamed after a long day at work, where you skipped lunch for a meeting and need to game and eat at the same time.

Welcome to to the reality of gaming life!
