- Drunks and Dragons (drunk D&D... I found it loses its charm quickly)
- Hello from the Magic Tavern (absurd and hilarious. I mentioned it in a previous e-mail)
- Nerd Poker (professional comedians play D&D)
- One Shot (A rotating group play a one shot campaign, usually lasting only a few sessions, of various indie RPGs. Neat to hear about new games and interesting takes on mechanics.

- 99% Invisible ("Explore the hidden side of everything.")
- Freakonomics Radio
