Are People Interested In Listening To Sessions?

I was on Youtube watching Chris Perkins DM the staff of Robot Chicken and another one of the Penny Arcade crew. I'm just wondering how interested people would actually be to listen to a recording of gaming sessions? Particularly when it's not of people who are established in the industry or have some sort of "celebrity" status.
We read through session recaps on other's blogs all the time but if it's an audio file running, would it still have an appeal? When reading we can read as much or as little as we want, skimming here and there, etc. Just something that's been on my mind for a few days and I don't think I'd be interested in uploading hours of videos onto Youtube.


  1. I ran across podcast recordings of sessions about five years ago and have listened to a couple. I particularly enjoyed recordings of a British group styling themselves "the Bradford Players" playing through the Call of Cthulhu mega-adventures "Masks of Nyarlathotep" and "Horror on the Orient Express".

    I wrote some thoughts on the benefits and attraction of audio game recordings here.

  2. Thanks for the link to your article. Haha I think I'm waiting for some kind of reassurance due to a fear of hearing myself with all of my "uhmmms" and "errr" along with juvenile humor that always seems to surface at the gaming table. Among other things.
