Podcast Traveling Companion Issue #1

Let me first say that I do a lot of traveling. It is not out of the ordinary for me to spend 3 to 8 hours driving in a single day. Last year I was listening to some Podcast episodes while I would drive. Let's keep in mind that I only put one earpiece in so I can still hear what is going on around me. It wouldn't do much good if I enjoy listening to some Podcast fun but don't end up making it to my destination in one piece.

To make a long story short, I forgot about this entertaining past time until I recently seen a tweet about an overly long six hour plus Podcast about Gencon. I had a trip planned to Greensboro, NC last week which is about a 7 hour drive once way so I quickly did some searching for D&D and RPG Podcasts to download and toss on the Ipod. I ended up finding 3 that sounded interesting and was very pleased at what I heard.

I made it through episodes 1 through 10 of the Dungeon Master Guys and it kept me entertained for almost the entire drive down. It was a great mix of various different RPG table top games. I really enjoyed the interviews while at conventions as well as the answering of questions sent in by other readers and listeners. If you happen to have been as clueless to this fantastic Podcast you can find it here:

I also was able to listen to a single episode of Chronicles Pathfinder Podcast which happened to be number 9 in that series. It was considerably longer and was extremely informative and entertaining as I am just beginning to find out about Pathfinder. There was a ton of different topics covered including a min-max build for a Barbarian that sounded amazingly fun to play. If I ever get a chance to get into a Pathfinder game here I just may try to make it and see how it turns out. You can find the Chronicles Pathfinder Podcast here:

I have already downloaded several more episodes of Chronicles: Pathfinder and several Flagons and Dragons. If anyone knows of some other D&D or RPG style Podcast I should check out, please drop me a line here or on twitter @cfallsgamer


  1. Hey Chad, the podcasts I like are Gamerstable, start with the episode,"gaming with strangers".
    THACOS HAMMER is a cool 2E. RFI(roll for initiative) and SAVE OR DIE podcasts are 1E. They are O.K. The actual play I like is called SKYPE OF CTHULHU. Search iTunes under podcasts for warhammer and there are a lot.

  2. Thanks for all the suggestions Marc. I will certainly look them all up. I travel enough to give me plenty of time to listen to a lot of different ones!

    I actually cut my teeth with warhammer (40k specifically) podcast last year. I got rather involved with that online community but I just ran out of steam both cash (damn expensive hobby) and time to play.

    My work travel is starting to settle down a bit so I am enjoying getting back into the D&D group and having some gaming fun.
