I would like to lodge a complaint.
« on: September 25, 2013, 12:46:45 AM »
I am broken.

Prior to discovering RPPR, I muddled through poor production. Cranking the volume to hear the nasally delivered ruminations of thirteen year old nerds that count the boobs in the latest Sci-Fi/Fantasy movie or the general, almost half-heartedly maintained, hubris of older gamers waxing philosophical on how they like or dis-like some setting or mechanic without discussing the actual reasoning behind their opinions. As if the fact that they colored in the numbers on their first set of dice imbues them with some absolute authority that need not be questioned but simply accepted. I too used that black crayon on a set of orange-ish dice while lying in plush, shag carpet under the watchful eyes of Farrah Fawcett. Doesn't that gift me with absolute authority? My wife says "no" and she won't get drunk enough to agree with me until the holidays so we'll just leave that on the table for latter consideration.

And now? Their icons lie at the bottom of my phone's screen, forgotten and their episode counts crawling towards that day when my phone notices I have so many un-played episodes that it decides it shouldn't download anymore.

I am broken. I demand to be compensated!

Either produce more content or point me in the direction of another group of fellows with similar tastes, critical thinking skills and production values. If you cannot or will not do so, please bring me your manager.

Have you listened to *everything?* I mean we have a lot of episodes in the archives. Plus, RPPR B-Sides if you're an AP fiend.

Right...I may have a slight podcasting addiction. 
So I'll share some of my links.

Fist of a podcast that's just as good as RPPR.  Because it's actually the RPPR guys under another banner.
http://theunspeakableoath.com/home/?feed=tuo-actual-play

Then there are some good, but not quite as good as RPPR actual plays.
http://drunkandugly.com/ (They have run all of Calebs games)
https://www.wizards.com/dnd/archive.aspx?category=newsresources&subcategory=podcasts (Because listening to Patrick Rothfuss roleplaying tickles my fancy)
http://jankcast.com/ (some actual play and a REALLY good RPG podcast)

Then some good RPG podcasts without actual play
http://www.kenandrobintalkaboutstuff.com/ (Good stuff)
http://bs-radio.com/ (home of the now finished Bearswarm RPG show and the generic BS-radio show)
http://www.feartheboot.com/ftb/ (One of the grandads of RPG radio.  Now on it's 312th show)
http://2d6feet.com/ (a really good RPG industry show)
http://podcast.sharkbonegames.com/ (Movies and RPG mashup show)
http://narrativecontrol.libsyn.com/ (mostly podfaded, but great stuff in their backlog)

Happy Jacks has great production quality, with a matching amount of infantile humor which you may dislike. They also have some ap's however some of the later ones seem to have dropped in quality but the main podcast has remained constant.

I've finished off the listing on iTunes and I'm currently working through the backlog from the website. As for the Actual Plays, I've listened to some but I'm more interested in theory than practice. It's a great product by the way, I don't know if I made that clear last night.

And thanks to everyone for your lists, I'll start working my way through those as well. I have quite a bit of time on my hands at work and home so I appreciate it.

I also enjoy listening to the folks of IPMM (I Podcast Magic Missile). They're in central Virginia (Blacksburg), so the accents remind me a little of home (I grew up a little south of there). I especially enjoy listening their Monsterhearts AP sessions.

Fear the BOOT!

I have listened to the whole 300+ episode archive three times now; and I get something out of it each time... if only a good chuckle.

I've really gotten into the Rag-NERD-Rock podcast recently: http://ragnerdrok.com/

They're generally pretty funny, particularly in their Actual Plays -- especially since they're all from New York City, and their accents sound super hilarious to my Missouri ears.

And -- no offense to Randall Terducken & company -- but they're the first group that I've listened to that seem to really understand how you're supposed to play Fiasco: http://ragnerdrok.com/tag/fiasco/
Check out the Technical Difficulties Gaming Podcast!

Of all my podcasts(Originally I only listened to RPPR's big two) I now have a list of things to work through

Nerdist
Star Talk
Nightvale
We're Alive
RPPR

I have new episodes of all of them today.

I always save RPPR for last, it's like saving your favorite parts of a meal so that they can be the last bite.

Soon. Soon.

If you can't fix it with duck tape you haven't used enough.
