The results of this poll are hidden until it is manually edited by the user or site admin.

Over the last couple of weeks, we've been taking nominations for this year's Favourite RPG Podcast Poll. Last year we had 99 nominations; this year we have over 150! This poll is the final poll for the ACTUAL PLAY category. The TALK category poll can be found here.


Actual Play podcasts are podcasts where the podcasters play an actual tabletop RPG for your listening enjoyment. They range from hour long one-shots to multi-year campaigns; some have voice actors, while others are hobbyists sharing their love for the game. While many are D&D podcasts, there are many podcasts for a wide variety of game systems, in a wide variety of styles. I personally enjoy the podcast format for AP, as I find it a lot easier to consume while walking my dog or driving than watching a video.

Can't see the poll? You need to be logged in to the website. Also, Tapatalk and similar mobile apps don't support polls.

Don't forget to also vote in the TALK category!

You may vote for as many podcasts as you like. The poll will remain open for two weeks, closing on January 1st (New Year's Day!) -- the results will be announced in a January episode of Morrus Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk podcast with an article later.

Last year's winner of the Actual Play category was The Adventure Zone. You can see last year's Top Ten for both categories here. Previous winners are not eligible in the poll.


Why wasn't [my favourite podcast] nominated?
Unfortunately, I have no insight into why you didn't nominate your favorite podcast. You can see the nomination thread here.

[A podcast] was nominated, but isn't in the poll. Double check it was nominated correctly (name, plus link to the actual podcast), and also check it isn't in the TALK category. If I've made a mistake, let me know ASAP so it can be added. Also double check name variations - sometimes they have the word "the" in front and sometimes they don't, so check both! Unfortunately, if it wasn't nominated correctly (name, plus link) then it isn't eligible this year.

The podcast is in the wrong category. I've tried my best to put them in the correct category just to make it easier to vote on, but occasionally I had to guess. All votes, whichever poll it is in, count though, so just be sure to vote for it wherever it is. Some fit into both categories, so I placed them in the one I thought they did more of, but don't worry about it - just find it and vote!

What about the [podcast network]. This is a poll of individual podcasts, not networks. Nominations needed to be for a specific podcast on that network, not the network as a whole. If you can't find your favourite podcast network, try looking for the names of some of their shows.

Well, that was fun

I can see the stats, and it's fun to watch the waves of votes come in as various podcasts' communities become aware that the polls are live.

If anyone is looking for a lot of amazing content to listen to, I can't recommend Dungeons and Randomness enough, they have over 1000 hours of amazing content made up from multiple groups all in the same shared world working upon each others actions and consequences.


So happy that The Stubborn Heroes made the list, they are an amazing table top DnD podcast with an awesome and active discord where the fans get to interact and chat with the Heroes themselves.


Dungeons and Randomness has a beautiful formula. A sharp, intelligent and relatable cast. Jason and Briannas world continues to blossom and grow. A perfect mix of storytelling, role playing and mechanics.


I don't listen to a lot of actual play podcasts, but i really loved what happend when the "terrible warriors" tried out the Noirlandia game

Happy listening !
