Fear the Boot is essentially one of the old guard in the podcast community, especially in the tabletop gaming niche. Their podcast catalog goes back 12 years and they have released over 500 regular episodes of their show. For the most part, they are a round table discussion type podcast with a focus on roleplaying games. Some of the hosts have changed over time, usually because peoples lives have changed in the past 12 years, but they’ve always maintained a positive feel to the show. This was actually one of the first podcasts I discovered, years ago, and have stuck with it ever since. The backlog is huge, but you can jump in anywhere. The guys, and occasional girls, of the show have been gaming for decades and will hop on the mics whenever a topic comes up between them that they feel they can talk about at length. Subtly and over time, this show can teach you a lot of the do’s and don’t’s of being part of a role playing group. The show has also spun off into an actual play series, which has given them countless more topics to talk about now that they have topics to pull from directly related to games where the audience can get context for the “you had to be there” stories and discussions.
