Geek and Sundry (link) put together a Top Five Expert Level RPG Podcast List and Save or Die made the list.
If you have a profound passion to learn and know all the tabletop RPG things, allow me to share with you some of the best audio podcasts I’ve found that I think would be a perfect fit for an official RPG101 course.Now, mind you, I only heard of one of the four others on the list prior, and although I do listen to podcasts, there is only so much time during the day to listen (and less so since I no longer have a daily commute)
So, what do they say about Save or Die?
The Save or Die! Podcast (SoDcast) launched in 2010, with a focus on classic D&D games “from the first box set of 1974 to the last of the 1990s box sets.” SoDcast has also covered info on other RPGs, such as Swords & Wizardry, The Hero’s Journey, and Labyrinth Lord, to name a few. SoDcast is the podcast you’ll want to listen to if you’re interested in learning everything you can about the history of the Dungeons & Dragons RPG.
Critical Episode: Save or Die Podcast: Interview With Tracy HickmanSome things to note:
- The Critical Episode was hosted by Vince and Crispy
- Classic D&D and the Hero's Journey was the Liz, Mike & Jim era
- Swords & Wizardry can only be my recent ramblings
Which means they took a long and complete look at the Save or Die Podcast, which makes making the Top 5 even that much more striking.
Congrats to all, but especially to Liz, Mike and Jim for holding the torch high for as long as they did.
