If someone is new to LARP, where do you send them? Where do they get information? Hopefully you send them here now – but Podcasts could also be a great place to start for someone new to the hobby.
The Fantasy Podcast is a new show looking at different aspects of Fantasy and this hour long discussion explores various different parts of the hobby. Oliver McNeil takes a look at the Treasure Trapped documentary (and heartily recommends it) has has a great segment on Skullduggery LARP explaining how the system operates.
LARP is such a visual spectacle in many ways, that it’s hard to get across what LARP is all about via a podcast. Comments by Oliver McNeil about the beautiful costumes that his interviewees are wearing are unfortunately somewhat lost on listeners, it’s hard to imagine what the costume looks like. Perhaps this medium is better suited to round table discussions of subjects within LARP, rather than a set of interviews with players. However it’s well worth loading up onto your phone to have a listen to on your monthly commute – and it seems like it might turn into another interesting podcast for fantasy fans to listen to on a regular basis!
Are there any other Podcasts that feature LARP? Or is this an area that is sorely lacking that people would like to see more of?
