As December approaches, it's that time of year again -- where we take nominations for your favourite TTRPG podcast of the year!

Every year on the Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk podcast, along with this website, we hold a giant poll to find out what are the most favourite tabletop RPG podcasts of the year. The voting is divided into two categories -- TALK, and ACTUAL PLAY -- and each years, two podcasts win and enter the HALL OF FAME. Once a podcast has entered the Hall of Fame, it is no longer eligible in future years.

ACTUAL PLAY podcasts are podcasts where the podcasters play an actual tabletop RPG for your listening enjoyment. TALK podcasts include interviews, reviews, discussion, opinion, advice and news.

Here are last year's winners -- What Would The Smart Party Do?, and The Unexpectables. Who will take the crown and join the Hall of Fame in 2021?

How To Nominate
  • Post your nomination as a reply to this thread.
  • One nomination per person per category.
  • Must have released at least 3 new episodes in 2021.
  • Include the podcast name (tbe accurate) -- and a LINK to the show's website. If I have to search for it I’ll just move on!
  • Note which category your nomination is in -- ACTUAL PLAY or TALK.
  • PODCASTS, not YouTube channels or Twitch streams.
  • It cannot be your podcast or one you are involved with.
  • Its primary focus must be tabletop roleplaying games.
  • If a group puts out multiple podcasts, they are combined into one nomination.
  • Those which have won before are not eligible.
  • Please say why, as we read those comment out on the show.
Nominations will be open until Friday December 3rd. After that the shows will be put to the public vote and the winners announced on the Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk podcast.

Be sure to follow the above rules. I’ll only be compiling valid nominations which do so!

The Effekt Podcast
Talk: Chat about Free League/Year Zero Engine games as well as TTRPGs in general and occasional guests. The hosts are long time friends and gamers and listening to them banter about the latest games, and how Matthew never lets Dave get a word in, and who is the best GM, is so much like banter around a million tabletops, that you can't help but love it.
The Effekt AP
Play: From the same fellas as The Effekt Podcast. Actual Plays of Free League/YZE games featuring people from the Discord community. Always fun to listen to for the games as well as the friendly banter.

Effekt
Nomination: Talk (they do Actual Play as well)
Why: Entertaining and informative discussion on the topics we all face around the gaming table. Good friends having a yarn- taking the 'P^%%'out of each other (as we all do at the gaming table).
Well worth the time.

My nomination for Talkie is Orlanth Rex's Gaming Vexes where a group get together to run through a topic and attempt to put the world to rights.
AP is the Effekt podcast - variety of games but particularly liked the series devoted to playtesting the Wild West themed game they're developing.

This podcast is great! Jolene and Saul are not only informative but they are super funny. I really like the easy back and forth chat that makes it enjoyable to listen to and I do not get bored lol. Their voices are also easy on the ears which is definitely a plus :).

Many realms!
Actual Play
Link: Many Realms
Reason: Short campaigns and one shots that give a lot of visibility to small indie game, and genuine conversations about how their game is going and how its' emotional stakes are evolving.

Talk
Gaming Perspectives

Link: Gamingperspectives.com
Reason: Saul and Jolene have spent a couple of years talking about gaming from many... uh... perspectives.
They've discussed various rulesets, mindsets, genres; they've talked to game creators, convention owners, and even their own own friends.
Now, granted, Saul's recollection of certain events from back in the day don't match mine, but the conversation is always entertaining and thought provoking.

Actual Play - FIND THE PATH
RIck Sandidge runs his players through several of Paizo's AP's including MUMMY'S MASK, HELL'S REBELS and TYRANT"S GRASP and is one of the most entertaining, emotional, and fun Pathinfder Actual Plays that I've had the pleasure to listen to. It strikes that perfect balance between entertainment and the game without going too far in either direction. It's my Actual Play of choice these days.

Theatre of the Mind Players

This is a fantastic actual play that plays non-dnd ttrpgs. They blend drama, comedy and mechanics well in their games. They have both one shots, new arcs, and recurring games. In my opinion some of their best arcs in 2021 were their second season of Delta Green, a Mork Borg one shot and they just started releasing a Vaesen arc. You can tell this group trusts each other and enjoys playing together. One of the top actual play podcasts.

Who: The Old Ways Podcast
Web: The Old Ways Podcast
Why: The Old Ways Podcast features an extensive and growing catalogue of quality character-driven adventures in various compelling settings. The phenomenally talented producer/keeper leads an equally talented, diverse, and inclusive group of storytellers and players. The heart and dedication (and sometimes insanity) shows in every episode from this production's wildly creative and varied scenarios - from Call of Cthulhu to Aliens and Delta Green to the upcoming Coriolis and Vampire the Masquerade campaigns. Highly recommend!
