It’s that time of year again! Nominate your favourite RPG podcasts of 2019. As a reminder, here are last year’s Top 10, and here's 2018. Who will take the crown for 2020?

As always, the podcasts are divided into two categories: ACTUAL PLAY and TALK. 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.

Hall of Fame
Last year's winners were Tablestory (Actual Play) and The Grognard Files (Talk). These two podcasts joined The Adventure Zone, and The Good Friends of Jackson Elias in the Hall of Fame, and are not eligible to enter this year.

How it works
This is the nomination thread. In this thread, anybody can nominate their favourite tabletop RPG podcast in each of two categories (Actual Play, and Talk).

Once the nominations close, they will be compiled and the full (valid) list presented in a poll for public voting.

The Top 10 in each category will be announced first on Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk, and then later posted here to the website.

Rules for valid nominations:
  • podcasts, not videos
  • must have released at least 3 new episodes in 2020
  • the main focus must be tabletop RPGs
  • must not be your own podcast
  • must include a link to the podcast’s web page
  • if a group puts out multiple podcasts, they are combined into one nomination
  • say why
  • podcasts in the Hall of Fame are no longer eligible
  • one nomination per category per person only

Nominations open for two weeks, until Sunday 29th November. The poll will come shortly thereafter. The results will fittingly initially be announced in our podcast and posted here as an article later.

Nominate your favourite by posting in the replies. You only get to nominate one in each category (Talk, Actual Play). Make sure to check the rules above or your nomination may not valid.

Mythguided: Forgotten Lore
Actual play
D&D 5e podcast
Original world with well developed lore.
Great role play, players stay in character with minimal out of character interactions. Interesting characters and storyline.
well paced. GM provides solid atmosphere with strong NPC’s, personalities and well voiced. Very fun to listen to, good immersion.

I would like to nominate the LordGosumba stream for the "Talk" and "Actual Play" categories but if I can only submit it for one category then I would choose "Talk"

Lord Gosumba

Having streamed 95 episodes in 2020, the LordGosumba stream has delivered amazing special guests from the RPG industry - in no particular order; Luke Gygax, Erik Mona, Lenard Lakofka (RIP), Jason Buhlman, Sean K. Reynolds, and Bruce Cordell just to name a few! The podcast offers engaging conversations focused on Greyhawk but including other areas of TTRPG, hours and hours of exciting actual play (55 sessions in 2020 in a campaign that has spanned 40 years!) with amazing landscapes of miniature scenes, and a faithful dedication to his fans shown through his engagement to the chat. Everyone on the team shows a strong passion to the hobby... and the appreciation given back to the fans through amazing giveaways are just icing on the cake. This is one that deserves to be in the Hall of Fame for sure.

Note: this is NOT Live streamed off of YouTube. More episodes can be seen/heard here also:

The League of Ultimate Questing
Actual Play Podcast
www.theluq.com

An incredible original world, a delightful cast of players, a marvelous mix of action and comedy and drama, and a dungeon master who continually inspires. The League of Ultimate Questing is hands down my favorite actual play podcast, and one that I highly recommend to any fan of DnD.
 

Actual Play: The House of Bob Podcast
House of Bob Podcast
This podcast has everything: Hilarious one-shots, extended campaigns, multiple game systems (including D&D5E, Og: Unearthed Edition, The Sprawl, and Paranoia), impeccable and professional audio quality and production, and a great cast of players.

Talk: The Tome Show
The Tome Show
Lots of TTRPG topics are covered here, including reviews and retrospectives. Their Edition Wars series is really interesting; two gaming veterans look back over the history of the various D&D editions and compare and contrast. They also have an actual-play series, but I don't find it compelling.

Podcast: Wrath and Story
Category: Actual Play
Why: It brings two goofuses into the grim darkness of 40k, where they wander trapped in a pillow labyrinth of their own making. It's a competent representation of the universe in spite of the often comedic tone and will even jerk a few tears on occassion.

Okay, then if Lord Gosumba's channel isn't considered a podcast,
I would like to nominate the channel for the Category: Actual Play.

Would this be acceptible?
The entire poll is about podcasts. You need to nominate a podcast. :)
 


Category: Actual Play
Podcast: New Crits on the Block
Why: They have the key ingredients for a great podcast.
1. Storyline - The DM is great a crafting an addicting storyline that leaves you wanting to keep listening and gives you all the feels. You will definitely enjoy all the character development from each player as the story evolves.
2. Humor - Literally laugh out loud stuff. If you like to laugh and enjoy way too many pop cultural references this podcast is for you.
3. Production quality - Great audio, professional set up, audio editing is awesome, and they produce their own music for every episode.

I Nominate "New Crits On The Block"!

Why? I am not a podcast person, not at all. I have a hard time paying attention and really creating a world just listening to Podcast. Its why I can't do Audio books. However, with New Crits - i'm hooked. From the first episode where 20 seconds in the DM Jake is Roasted, you are set up for a loveable, hilarious adventure where you don't know what the party will do next. Be warned: Do Not Do Dishes When Listening. I have accidently broken a glass drinking cup from laughing so hard!

Actual Play - www.newcritsontheblock.com
why? an amazing podcast which has grown from strength to strength and has grown throughout 2020 and become one of my favorite podcasts. The characters are well thought out and the campaign is brilliant. they have also made a wonderful international community which just shows how good their podcast is. The theme song is one of the best ones ive heard.

New Crits on the block - have you heard the news about these guys?


Funny, gripping and full of heart, this adventure takes you through CHAD INFESTED FORESTS, ski resorts and sweet sixteen dance parties while keeping it real and keeping it DND fantasy.

If you like a laugh and something just full of personality and love, please go check these guys out. You won't be disappointed.

Actual Play - Very Random Encounters
They keep it lively by trying many different game systems.
They take randomly generated characters and breathe life into them with wit and empathy.
This is a team of people who support each other so each can shine.
And, there is good production quality.
