Welcome to the Critshow
The Critshow is an actual play podcast where the main story is set in a world using the Powered by the Apocalypse game: Monster of the Week.
Every Wednesday Jake, Tass, and Teej try their best to solve Rev’s mysteries, protect the innocent, and hunt monsters along side their allies at the Indiana Paranormal Task-force (IPT). Their intentions are good, their dice rolls…not so much.
The Critshow debuted in May of 2018, and has since launched a Patreon where they create a bonus weekly podcast for their subscribers where Tass runs a game of Worlds in Peril, another Powered by the Apocalypse game
On this site you can find everything from swag to upcoming events to episode transcripts of The Critshow.
I just started the actual play podcast @thecritshow and it’s very sharp… The players have good chemistry and table sense but special shout-out the GM @RevDeschain for keeping things moving, presenting smart hard choices, and illustrating how to GM a 7-9 result better than I’ve ever really understood it before.
As an experienced player, this is the best Monster of the Week podcast I’ve found to show what real play looks like. The guys have a great group dynamic and know how to be interesting and funny while also advancing a serious storyline. If you want a good real play podcast or want to see what Monster of the Week looks like when it’s done right, this is the best podcast around.
