About

Role Playing Public Radio presents a weekly Actual Play podcast of tabletop role playing game sessions. We play a wide variety of RPGs, from popular classics like Dungeons and Dragons and Call of Cthulhu to indie hits like Monsters and Other Childish Things and Don’t Rest Your Head. Some of our episodes are stand-alone scenarios and we also feature a complete 4e Dungeons and Dragons campaign called “The New World’.  Give us a listen if you want to hear a great gaming crew fight evil, try outrageous plans to save the day and joke about it.

Each episode is a full game session recorded at the table with a Zoom h2 digital audio recorder. We are adults, so keep in mind there will be some profanity.

Check out our Campaign Index to see a list of our completed campaigns.

    Great listening!

    Player bios might be cool…

    “Some” profanity?! Surely you jest!
    Seriously though, I am really enjoying listening to these, particularly D&D and CoC.

    I came for the Eclipse Phase and stated for… everything else, really. Including _Omar Shakti Must Die!_ (which left me in stitches). Please keep up the good work – more Eclipse Phase games would be welcome! Have you considered running any adventures from The Laundry RPG (http://shop.cubicle7store.com/The-Laundry-RPG)?

    These guys have become a weekly staple of mine. I’ve listened to no less than five different actual play rpg podcasts, and if I were to recommend a single one to introduce this hobby to somebody unfamiliar with it and who wanted to know what RPG’s were all about, and I wanted them to understand the hobby in the way I enjoy it myself, it would be RPPR. By a LONGSHOT. I hope they decide to continue doing this for a long time.

    Love your site, reminds me of when friends and I would spend weekends roleplaying. Especially love the CTHULHU episodes, always wanted to hear how other players would handle situations. Thanks, and great job.

    Thanks for the awesome podcast. I started listening a while ago and immediately got hooked; I particularly enjoy the A Dirty World and CoC episodes. You guys are what get me through the school week, and I can’t thank you enough. Also, seconded about player bios.

    I love this podcast. I thought it was funny when Ross noted on the RPPR about how a podcaster forum or something suggested podcasts no longer then one hour but that the RPPR fans eat up 6 hour ones and scream for more, more more! Yeah, that about sums up my feelings 🙂 You guys have helped me loose over 50 lbs this past year as I listen while I hike (through the woods at night so sometimes I get a little freaked out on the CoC ones).

    Keep them coming and keep them long!

    Love the site.

    And I, too, support a biographic section with photos of those involved [or simply one group photo, if you prefer].

    Regardless, thanks for everything and keep up the great work!

    Hey guys, found you by accident a couple of weeks ago (Google knows everything). Anyway you guys have helped me through tedious workdays since then and have given me a ton of inspiration for my own GM:ing 🙂 My favourite indie fantasy game is transforming into a fantsy/horror game 🙂
    Kind regards one of your listeners from across the pond.

    I second the idea of Player bios! Also, do you upload the character sheets used in your campaigns after they are complete somewhere? and if so…. where?

    Wow, I got directed here because of the Night’s Black Agents actual play, but I think I’ll stick around. Lots of good stuff here.

    This could quite possibly be the best Actual Roleplay podcast out there. Besides the amazing amount of different systems played the entire All Star cast and their crazy play off each other keeps me wanting more. I truly hope they never stop adding content.

    ….and I wish my weekly gaming group was as imaginative as them

    I was lured in by Know Evil abd have been addicted ever since. I’m fortunate enough to be able to listen to podcasts all day at work. Know Evil filled many hours and all the rest since. Keep up the great RP guys!

    I love your podcast & it is very informative but please tell your players not to eat potato chips so close to their mics. It’s gross & distracting 😉 Thanx

    I’ll just say that I recently had to take two 17-hour flights, and the two podcasts I chose to fill up my phone before the flight were this one and Ken & Robin Talk About Stuff. Pretty much says it all right there.

    Could you guys play Magical Burst, Magical Fury, or the Sailor Moon RPG? You can find Magical Burst and Magical Fury on Yaruki Zero Games. Thanks for the Podcast and thanks for the great laughs!

    I’d really like to use a photo (Cold War bunker) I found on your site, it’s for an upcoming album in releasing. Please get in touch. Thanks.

    Hey love the podcast guys, haven’t been able to game with my D&D group in a while so this is a good fix. Also shoutout to Cody for the Uncle Buck joke on Slender Man episode 2. Priceless!

    Finally managed to listen to all of A Very Thorough Murder. Great fun.

    Came in for the Upwind initial playthrough during the kickstarter, stayed for other casts like the Mutants and Masterminds. Slightly sad that Hc Svnt Dracones hasn’t come up yet, but the breadth of RPGs covered is quite nice.

    I discovered the RPPR podcast recently and am enjoying it immensely! Have listened to a handful of Delta Green and Base Raiders episodes thus far, lots of fun. I am a long time player and GM of RPG’s myself. Keep up the great work!
