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.

I’d love and he honoured to nominate the boys over at @DiceAndDesire @DiceAndDesire
Largely newbies to the world of D&D, they have taken the game in their stride and seem like naturals at the game. They have a brilliantly funny rhetoric and a really interesting array of characters, all with their distinct personalities and skills. They all gel together incredibly well and the podcast makes for a delightful listening experience.

Nate, the DM, is a brilliant leader and always takes the guys on a good adventure. Naturally funny and charismatic, he brings the whole show together. He’s a natural at presenting.
These guys deserve all the love in the world and they need a heck of a lot more followers!

Real Play Nominee: Dungeon Dad's
Talk: Dungeon Dad's


My nomination goes to these guys for not only being hilarious, but also playing the game correctly and themselves being rules lawyers.
And the Talk nomination also goes to these guys for their overlook into each episode as a bonus episode, as they describe their short cummings and failures, but also their wins (so be it far few and in between).

Dice & Desire (Actual Play)

‎Dice and Desire on Apple Podcasts

Group of friends who have hit the ground running to hilarious effect. Been really enjoying what I've heard. Fantastic DM as well!

First Post
Category: Actual Play
Who: Tabletop Roulette (Link)
Why: The organiser is a fantastic storyteller, and specializes in having a variety of rpg systems that they play - all great games, great stories and really good guests. Andy also works hard to make a safe space for everyone at the table, uplifting those from minority backgrounds.
 



I nominate Critical Bits! Hands down, this podcast is brilliant, all the way around. From PC performances, worldbuilding, improv interactions between DM, NPCs, and PCs, holy naughty word incredible plot construction, and groundbreaking approaches to what an actual play pod can do and be and I love it. Also: sarcastic driving.

Podcast: The Billowing Hilltop
Why: This series gets better and better and they really get into their stride after a few episodes. Some hilarious intros, great DMing, and it feels very honest like you're overhearing the game in a British pub with a pint of IPA.

The Glass Cannon podcast (actual play). The sound quality is amazing and these guys are some of the best Role players I have ever seen/heard and Skid Maher is the best of them!

Actual Play: CriticalDitto
Critical Ditto • A podcast on Anchor

They are more than a talented group of ttrpg players - they are incredible improv storytellers that make each episode so action-packed, hilarious, and emotional that you get hooked from the very first episode! They put so much love and joy into their podcast, and it comes through every moment.

Name: The Unexpectables
Category: Actual Play
Link: Why: This is the group that started my decent into the D&D world and I cannot thank them enough for it. With the people that formed my teenage years from humour to choice in pastimes from such places as Team Four Star, Culture Shock, etc they know how to entertain and they do it here and then some. Both their main show and their additional campaign the Prince Division has something for everyone and I honestly can tell you I remember the NPC's the DM makes better than main characters from actual TV shows and explores motivations and the why behind "villains" like no other so I implore you to consider them.

For the Talk category I would like to nominate the Dungeonmusings podcast:


Kevin provides thoughtful insights into running a wide range of tabletop RPGs. These range from discussions on merits of particular games, learnings from games played (ona separate YT channel) and advice to GMs.

He also runs an annual charity raffle to benefit a worldwide children's charity.

A very fun and educational podcast indeed!
