Audio Noise: It Might Be Undrinkable But You Can Always Just Listen

Hey everyone and welcome to a laser printed installment of Dispatch!

While the rest of the country is covered in snow, we are going to head over to sunny California where these douche bags play their game in the backyard. This isn't as easy as it sounds when it gets down to a frigid 50 degrees sometimes. So throw on something warm as we take a look at Happy Jacks RPG Podcast.

Focus: Role playing advise for new game masters along with a little bit of song and a whole lot of beer.
Audio Quality: four and a half of five bottles of microbrew
Content Quality: four and a half of five douche bags
Average Length: an hour and a half to two hours
Release schedule: pretty much every week

I was recently trolling through iTunes looking for a new podcast to listen to when I found Happy Jacks RPG Podcast. Lots of positive reviews so I decided to give them a listen and I'm glad I did. Geared toward giving advise to new GMs, Happy Jacks is a great blend of solid content and humorous anecdotes with the occasional burp thrown in to keep things honest.

In addition to the podcast, they also host a pretty active forum on their site and they also have their own albums. Yeah, not only are these guys podcasters, they are also musicians as well. Talk about being a talented bunch of douche bags, right?

So go check them out. Even if you aren't that into role playing games, all of the tangents and asides make Happy Jacks a very entertaining listen.

The Parting Shot...
