Turning Up the Noise - Podcast Impressions - Happy Jacks RPG Podcast

Thanks to suggestions from YOU, the readers of this blog, I've been swapping RPG podcasts in the place of my usual XM/Sirius radio.  I've listened to a handful, and haven't heard a bad one yet, but Happy Jacks RPG Podcasts had me laughing out loud as I was driving home earlier tonight.

That says a lot.  The conversations didn't sound forced, instead they reminded me of my college  days of gaming and the non-stop joking around that used to happen before and after the game (and sometimes during).  I used to have a "No Alcohol Rule" during our gaming sessions, just so I could keep a tenuous hold on the group.  The fine folks at Captain Jacks are out of control, and it works perfectly.

They are also long.  Running at 2+ hours per podcast, it's going to take me a day and a half of commuting to finish an episode.  No complaints on my end, but that may be an issue for some.

Did I mention it's most certainly Not Safe for Work?  Hey, who listens to podcasts at work anyway?

On a scale of 1 to 10, this one goes to 11 (Spinal Tap for the win!)
