The best podcasts for Tabletop gaming inspiration

Who am I?

Content creator and chief story catalyst for The Old Ways Podcast, but more than that, a coffee and dog lover. My mission is to connect with other people who love amazing stories through the compelling narratives played out at our gaming tables. I've spent the last three decades at gaming tables (with and without all the podcast gear) and one truth I learned was that stories come from so many different places. Hearing those stories and perspectives offered, gave me the opportunity to expand my view of our world.

My Show

What is my podcast about and/or how does it relate to the playlist topic you chose?

The Old Ways Podcast is a series of stories told through creative, non-scripted, tabletop gaming. We delve deep into character storylines, transcend simple hack and slash combat, while working to deliver lasting memories for our listeners.

What is my podcast playlist about?

Inspiration comes in many ways. Looking around the amazing community we're a part of, I enjoy listening as much as I do making our show. The playlist I've put together is all about highlighting shows that bring that creative spark to me.

The podcasts I picked and why

1. The Good Friends of Jackson Elias

Why this podcast?

These three gents are a staple of the horror gaming community. Topics range from Lovecraft, current literature, movies, and more. They are can't miss for a creative person like me.

2. Dan Carlin's Hardcore History

Why this podcast?

Carlin's depth for historical events is famous, but listeners like me enjoy the consistency in quality and attention to detail. So much of our current events are echoed by the past that Dan covers so well.

4.8

In "Hardcore History" journalist and broadcaster Dan Carlin takes his "Martian", unorthodox way of thinking and applies it to the past. Was Alexander the Great as bad a person as Adolf Hitler? What would Apaches with modern weapons be like? Will our modern civilization ever fall like civilizations from past eras? This isn't academic history (and Carlin isn't a historian) but the podcast's unique blend of high drama, masterful narration and Twilight Zone-style twists has entertained millions of listeners.

3. StarTalk Radio

Why this podcast?

Tyson is a giant in his field and his impact on math, science, and space are still being felt. What StarTalk helps me do is dream. Thinking about how humans might evolve in the next hundred years and how we might travel further than we have so far keeps my creativity engine moving.

5. What Next | Daily News and Analysis

Why this podcast?

I'm not the sort of person who ignores the world around me, but I don't have hours and hours to sift through the current events of the day. Topics and show length differ here and that is another reason why this show is great.
