In the spirit of old-school tabletop role-playing games, a collection of super-nerds engage in Actual Play podcasts of Paizo's Pathfinder Adventure Paths. Interweaving immersive storytelling with irreverent, improvised humor, the Glass Cannon Podcast delivers like no other the experience of what it's really like to sit around a table rolling dice and ball-busting with your best buds. In May of 2022, the original Pathfinder 1E Giantslayer adventure came to an end and the previously unreleased podcast episodes of the Strange Aeons live tour were added. In September of 2023, Campaign Two begins as GM and Glass Cannon Network CEO Troy Lavallee leads a crew of network founders Joe O'Brien, Skid Maher and Matthew Capodicasa along with fan-favorites Sydney Amanuel and Kate Stamas through the Pathfinder 2E Gatewalkers Adventure Path.

Awesome shows, good creators

There is a vast number of shows (free or otherwise) across the GCN(Naish), ran by so many different personalities and styles that even if one isn't your speed, there's probably another you'll enjoy.
Troy's current drive to emulate TECH CEOS with his 'content' and 'self described narcissism' gets tiring on the behind the scenes shows, but they're free and I can skip them if I bore of them. I'be never felt like a GCN episode was stalling or going through the motions or trying to do anything but their best. Most of your reviews are positive Troy.

I didn’t even know what Pathfinder was when I picked this up

I love the show. My friend recommended that I listen to it thinking I’d like it. Well, she was right. I listened to the first six or seven episode of season two, and then since there were no more in that season yet, I started over at episode one and haven’t stopped listening to it since. The sheer number of episodes I’ve binged is unhealthy, but I don’t care.

Now I’m GM’ing a Pathfinder campaign and slogging my own way through all of the rules with joy.

Thanks for doing what you do!

Once iconic, now not so much

If you love character development and high quality production….you should have listened to this when it came out before you were forced to slog through ads and modern eggshell tiptoeing.
Once built around character development and story now dedicated to massive casts and pandering.
Giantslayer is incredible (but for the new edits and ads) everything else is a pass
