Viewing that I can only conclude that perhaps Tom and Mr Oswald related.

I think Apocalypse World would make for a great one-shot since character creation takes all of 15 minutes, the PDF is all of $10, and it's not a very crunchy system.  My group ran Dungeon World almost on a lark with the GM only getting a couple days notice and we really didn't have any problems with the rules.  We were able to dive into Apocalypse World two weeks after that with no problems.

The main benefit is that we'd get to hear Aaron play a tech-centric character who gets helpful(?) advice from the swirling psychic maelstrom of the world and give other players bonuses to rolls but only if they follow his advice about something (A move/power called 'Oftener right').  That's a recipe for hilarity if there ever was one.

Is it somewhat based on Tom's idea from "We Three Games" or was it something you came up with yourself? Sounds like it could go real funny real fast.

It sounds like the predecessor of the Hotline Miami game, can't wait!

I hope we get a scene with an Agent trying to get the crawling chaos to sign a three picture deal.

Oh god, that was brilliant.  Was this directly inspired by Shadow of the Vampire, or is it just a parallel? 

I imagine that if you had actually pitched it as "this is a Cthulhu game where you all play cultists," it wouldn't have gone half as well.

I'd like to see how the RPPR crew does with http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product/113064/ViewScream

Though it's a new and odd interface for storygames.

I second the suggestion.

Yup, It was a Fear Itself game with Tom and Cody. I'll admit it wasn't "around" number stations as such but they did feature in there. I think it was mentioned in Episode 50(?) in 2010. I'm not sure where to find the AP but it was pretty damned good.

It was one of our first recorded AP episodes: http://slangdesign.com/rppr/2008/10/actual-play/in-case-you-missed-it-fear-itself-actual-play/

I used a number station recording but it was only part of a larger plot. I could focus a game's plot around number stations.

The first? I was way off. Damn fine game though. I bought Fear Itself and the book of unremitting horror after listening to that.
