Questing for RPG Podcasts

by Ken Newquist / September 8, 2016

It's time to hit play again. After a summer spent listening to novels, I've burned through my reserve of audio books. While my queue at Audible slowly refills, I'm looking for podcasts to listen to.

My intent is to listen to one or two podcasts a week during my morning workouts -- a far cry from the days when I'd listen to that many just driving to work -- but enough to keep somewhat current with the scene and provide intermissions from audio books.

Radio Free Burrito #28: Felicia Day and the Guild

by Ken Newquist / June 18, 2010

Episode #28 of Wil Wheaton's Radio Free Burrito is dedicated almost entirely to an interview with Felicia Day about her web series The Guild (Wheaton appeared in Season 3 and will return in Season 4). They talk about their characters on the show, and offer some insights into the work that goes into producing it. Great for anyone who's a fan of The Guild or is interested in producing a web series of their own.

Cover: Against the Giants

My gaming group recently returned to D&D 4th Edition with a megashot of the Revenge of the Giants supermodule. I talk about our experiences with Wizards of the Coast's homage to the original 1st Edition Against the Giants tournament modules on Episode #121 of The Tome Podcast.

I'm joined by Quinn Murphy of the excellent At Will 4E blog and regular Tome host Jeff Greiner. Check out the podcast.

The Stars Are Right for A Very Scary Solstice

by Ken Newquist / December 22, 2009

Winter is here. The nights have grown long, and while they're broken by the beauty of annual Christmas and holiday light displayers, they merely hide a daker evil. Talk of Christmas stars and Hannauka lights gives way to memories of another set of stars ... those who lock away the Great Old Ones in their watery grave, and who's proper alignment could bring about the endtimes.

Thus we have A Very Scary Solstice, an album of holday music inspired by the insanity-inducing, reality-sundering (and yes, entirely fictional) Cthulhu Mythos, and giving the question "Do you hear what I hear?" an entirely new connotation.
