Tabletop GMing podcasts

ReznikReznik Registered User regular
Can you guys recommend me some tabletop podcasts? I'm specifically looking for GMing tips/tricks/advice. System independent would be ideal, but otherwise D&D, Cyberpunk, and Shadowrun are relevant to my interests.

    For a start, check out the main DnD podcast/feed from WOTC. They typically have interviews, Q&A, and tips/tricks that could help. The Adventure Zone is a great DnD/RPG based podcast, but it's just play sessions and not general tips/tricks (though you can certainly take ideas from how play sessions progress).

    It's been a while since I dove deep into that segment, so I'd have to do some digging on what I used to listen to.

    Are you looking specifically for podcasts ? There are a lot of videos on GM advice. To me, the golden standard of those is Adam Koebel's Office Hours youtube serie. Unfortunately, I can't think of an equivalent podcast. For something a little more DnD-centric, check out Matt Colville's youtube channel.

    Thanks for the recommendations. I'll check out the videos for sure but I'm more looking for podcasts so I can listen to them at work and not stream a bunch of stuff on the company network.

    Inside the Masters Studio is a gm interview podcast which I think is pretty good.

    RPG Academy is a GM advice podcast (with a lot of branches into other things) They just did a great "Master class" series where they went over One Shot Podcasts's L5R series - the GM of that game and one of the players played the episodes, pausing frequently for commentary.

    Speaking of One Shot, it can be a good tutorial by exposure to a wide variety of systems and improv techniques and some of the other podcasts on the network might be worth checking out.

    The Glass Cannon podcast (Pathfinder) has a "behind the scenes" series (Cannon Fodder) where they have a lot of GM advice as well - discussing what happened in the previous episode and answering listener questions.
