It has been seven month since my last podcast list. I still walk to work and back, each trip taking maybe half an hour. I enjoy listening to podcasts while I walk.
- The Canon Puncture Show – I still like the show. The Game Advocates episodes have inspired me to push for certain games in our all systems considered biweekly group.
- Chronicles – I’m still listening to this Pathfinder discussion, review and interviews show. Episodes are around 4h long, which is terrifying. Once I start listening to an episode, that’s not a problem. I just continue listening where I left off. But I must confess that it scares me off when I haven’t listened to them in a while. The spoilerific section is always elicits mixed feelings: Should I skip it and hope that GM James runs it for us? Or should I keep listening? I also happen to think that podcast hosts should use their real names and not some forum nicknames.
- Fear the Boot – I’m still not sure what attracts me to the podcast. I keep listening anyway.
- The History of Rome – I haven’t listened to the podcast in a long time. There are 26 episodes queued up.
- In Our Time – This continues to be the most awesome mix of science, philosophy and history.
- Material World – I’m not too happy with it, but not unhappy enough to stop listening.
- Norman Centuries – I love these, even though episodes are rare and short.
- Roll For Initiative – I’m starting to loose interest in old school D&D podcasts. I can’t really say why. It’s just not as captivating. Not funny enough? Not informative enough? Not short enough? I’d try producing shorter episodes, maybe.
- RPG Circus – Still an interesting mix of topics. I guess the inherent tension of having old school, 4E, and Rifts on the podcast keeps me interested.
- Save or Die – Similar to the RFI podcast, I find that my interest is waning. I’d love to provide some advice, but I don’t have any. Perhaps explore new territory: This is what happened in our last game, this is how we resolved it, use these examples of play as starting points for a discussion of rules, monsters, and magic items? That would provide some insight into the various modes of play for old school play.
- Sounds! – Eclectic music, Swiss radio. Win.
- Thinking Allowed – Social science good. But I haven’t listened to it in a while.
- 2d6 Feet in a Random Direction – I like their discussion of products, their retail perspective, and the tension between old and new school.
- 3.5 Private Sanctuary – D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder RPG win. (Currently on hiatus!)
Any podcasts you are listening to you’d like to recommend?
I’d also like to promote the One Page Dungeon Contest 2011 via podcasts. Should I just mail a host for each of the RPG shows I enjoy and ask them?
