Audio Noise: The Other Beast That Sleeps Beneath The Sea

Hello everyone and welcome to a truly non-Euclidean edition of the Dispatch!

For this issue, we are going to bend time and space to meddle with things that Mankind as not meant to understand. So without further ado, let's take a closer look at one of the longest running gaming podcasts out there...

Yog Radio

Focus: Roleplaying Games, specifically Call of Cthulhu
Audio Quality: four of five cosmic horrors
Content Quality: four of five cosmic horrors
Average Length: two to two and a half hours
Squeaky clean for your listening pleasure

Started back in 2005 by the creators of Yog-Sothoth.com, Yog Radio is an RPG podcast all about the game Call of Cthulhu and the world of H.P. Lovecraft. While this 'cast is deals more with news items (such as upcoming releases from Chaosium and other publishers, convention news, and the like) it can still be an interesting listen. The hosts have a good chemistry that makes the podcast fun to listen to and there are other segments that are less timely but just as interesting. Another thing worth noting is the fact that the hosts are also players in several Call of Cthulu actual play campaigns which are a real blast to listen to.
