Not current

While I enjoy listening to the podcast, it takes way too long to post to iTunes. Like months and months.

My favorite AD&D podcast

I'm a big fan of all of the WGP podcasts but THACO's Hammer is my favorite. Mostly, 2nd edition is my favorite edition of AD&D but also I think the guys do the best job of giving information. This podcast is great because it's evergreen. People can listen to any episode no matter when it was released and find value. I am a newer listener to the show and I haven't listened to every episode but I really like it.

Wonderful

All I need to say is that I don’t play 2e, yet I making my way through these podcast a second time. The chemistry of the host is amazing. They feel like they truly like and respect one another. In addition the advice and ideas has helped my basic D&D game a lot.

These guys: they grow on you.

Truly the best 2nd Edition D&D podcast out there. Not that they have much competition. Nevertheless they do a great job and they have brilliant chemistry.

Reconnect to 2nd edition

If you ever played 2nd edition D&D this podcast is like a slice of heaven. It will take you back to some treasured memories and it may even inspire you to pick up playing once again. The hosts are really knowledgeable and entertaining, a great mix. I should also mention that you can hear the ice in their drinks tinkle during the podcast, an appeal for drunks everywhere.

Malleus THACOris optimus est!

That's Latin for "THACO's Hammer is the greatest!"I've been approaching you guys a little slower, while I polish off the backlog of Vince and the Gang over at RFI, but at the same time, you've also been the ones who got me through many an overnight motel stay while I was doing repetitive work reports as part of my job. Having you guys streaming on the laptop was like having a cadre of gamers sitting at the table with me, talking about the finer points of roleplaying while I did the drudge work necessary to pay the bills. I've asked a couple of questions in the past, and you've answered them quickly and expertly. In fact, my wife is preparing to playtest the Monk class one of you sent to her; the character will soon be making an appearance in my Roman campaign world (Mundus Romanus). Speaking of Roma Antiqua, have you guys done a show yet on the splatbook, "The Glory of Rome: Campaign Sourcebook?" I noticed it specifically proscribes the paladin class, probably because their origin as idealized Christian knights comes essentially from the Romance literature of the High Middle Ages. Personally, though, I don't see why warriors dedicated to rightness and justice, and who serve a god or gods who represent such virtues, couldn't still exist in a Classical setting, albeit in modified form. I'm thinking of using the Mithraic Mysteries as a possible semi-historic channel for the Paladin class. Any of you have any thoughts on what changes in the class abilities/restrictions--if any--might best be made to reflect a pagan era Paladin [Palatinus paganus]?
