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

rpg_podcast.jpg


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!

I'd like to nominate Unplaytested for the Talk category. Drawing from a random result on their big list of game ideas, Lara and Alex (along with their guest designers) riff a new game into creation, coming up with the core framework and system on the fly. They then follow up by giving the game a whirl on their live stream to see whether it holds up or if the game falls apart in an epic disaster.

Podcast: Unplaytested
Website: Unplaytested
Episodes: Episodes — Unplaytested
Twitter: @unplaytested
Category: Talk

Note: While they also have an Actual Play, that's on their live stream; the podcast itself belongs in the Talk category.
 

Eyes of Nine

Everything's Fine
TALK: Gaming and BS
Why? Two guys great repartee, solid community, funny interplay, GOOD SOUND.
Talk about a large variety of RPGs and try to be a force for good in the TTRPG space...

Actual Play Podcast
Questward

Questward is one of the most enjoyable actual play podcasts available, and one of my favourites I've ever listened to. They have excellent production qualities and a diverse cast of players and characters with great chemistry. Their stories are exciting, charming, funny, and have a real emotional weight. They are the only podcast around that I listen to as soon as it drops and they absolutely need more eyes and ears on them.

Who: The Old Ways Podcast
Web: The Old Ways Podcast
Why: The Old Ways Podcast is a brilliant long form actual play of established campaigns. Rich character backstory and forward development shows just how much the Keeper and the players are devoted to the craft of their story. On top of two long form weekly releases, there are side quest episodes that give listeners a taste of other systems that show spectacular diversity. With news of the upcoming third campaign, I cannot recommend this show more.

Nominating:
Dice Shame

Category:
Actual Play

Why:
This show is funny and heartfelt. I have literally laughed out loud listening to this on many occasions. The characters are fun and the DM, Jo, makes the plot and NPCs come alive. The slow reveal of the characters as we follow them on their journey is exciting and as fun as the adventures they experience.

I can't recommend this podcast enough!!

I am also nominating Gaming & BS in the Talk category.

Brett and Sean foster a great community and positive influences. As they have mentioned before, they like to think of themselves as two guys in a bar talking about gaming. Casual and very informative. Always exploring new ideas and discussing input from their community.

Website: Home (gamingandbs.com)
Episodes: Episode Archive and can be found on almost all podcatchers of choice

Podcast: Gaming and BS
Category: TALK
Site: Home

Another nomination for “Gaming and BS” in the Talk category.

Sean and Brett have consistently produced excellent content for 7 years. They present discussions on a wide variety of TTRPGs as well as insight and conversation on TTRPGs in general, running games, playing in games, and being a positive force in gaming. They have also cultivated a strong and welcoming community of supportive, experienced, and insightful listeners and participants.

Podcast: Tabletop Talk from Third Floor Wars
Category: TALK
Why: Craig interviews creators and insiders from a wide breadth of the TTRPG industry. These interviews provide amazing insights to the design and inspiration behind some of the best games in the industry. These conversations are casual and natural, but well-thought out well-organized. If have deep thoughts about RPGs, this podcast is for you.

Third floor wars has "tabletop talk" podcast, which has the best interviews with rpg and gaming creators I've heard (mainly RPGs). The polish is incredible for what is basically a one man host and production team, with a varying cast of guests. Craig's questions are always so insightful, and both his intelligence and incredible humanity and empathy are on display.

I would also like to nominate for the actual play category his "fear itself" series. .
His feel for the horror genre is killer, and the "Lincoln's Lincoln" commercial was a bit of genius.

Podcat- Fear of a Black Dragon
Category- Talk

Amazing in depth examination and analysis of adventure modules from The Gauntlet folks. Tends to focus on OSR titles, but plenty of variety and the discussion is generally system agnostic. Fun, useful, and a great way to expand a person’s gaming horizons. Sheds a light on classic adventures while also bringing attention to the most interesting things being released today. Also provides companion materials to enhance the gaming experience and create the perfect mood. Best way to lose yourself in a run a person could ever hope to find.
