Politics at the Gaming Table: An RPG and Politics Podcast

Fantasy & Science Fiction Podcasts

We know we are not your favorite podcast, but you do have a long commute."I don't play RPGs anymore because it got political! Artists should not be political! Oh, you whiney shitbirds. LIFE is political. Arts and entertainment have always been driven by politics." The above is paraphrasing The Bitchy Historian, but it is true.Some say politics do not belong at the gaming table, well we disagree. Politics is unavoidable and we feel they need to be discussed in the context of RPGs in a more productive environment than social media.

Bonus Episode 1 - 2020 Election and Dragonlance Lawsuit

11/10/2020
We had major technical issues with this episode and our recording software went completely against us. The episode is very choppy and cuts out at random parts.
