AND WHAT THE HECK THIS IS ALL ABOUT.
Hi! I’m Tess and I’m a giant nerd. I currently play in two Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition games (one in Ravenloft!), one Mouse Guard RPG game (I’m a tiny little Tenderpaw), one Star Wars Edge of the Empire game, and I also GM a Star Wars Age of Rebellion game. One of my favourite things about the RPG community these days is the resurgence of podcasts. I love that there are so many different ones to choose from. We’ve got a whopping 275+ podcasts listed on the site, 45 with female hosts, 85 with female players, 37 with LGBTQ+ representation, and 25 with people of colour represented. That’s a lot of podcasts!
HOW IT CAME TO BE
I started RPG Casts because I found I was always going to Reddit or to Twitter asking the community for suggestions of RPG podcasts. Why wasn’t there just one place that had a list of all the current ones?
The more I got into listening to these podcasts, the more I had friends asking me for suggestions. The kicker was when one friend asked if I had a list of podcasts I could send her and the idea for this website just sort of jumped out at me.
Something that I feel is important for you to know is that I was trying to listen to at least one episode of every podcast I have listed on my site. But with over 275 pods listed, that’s a lot of listening time. And while I have a huge love of RPG podcasts, this also means that I can’t possibly listen long term to every podcast on the site. So if you thing that I should be listening long term to a specific cast that I’m not right now – recommend your favourite episode from that podcast to hook me!
I’m working on adding as many podcasts as I can find to this site, so if you don’t see a podcast on here that you know about, that you run, or that you listen and love, let me know! I’d love to add it to my list.
