Knights of the Night normally play WoD, but they have a significant collection of podcasts that catalog their two Dresden campaigns. They run a nice balance between role playing and explaining mechanics to their listeners, and the shows are pretty well edited.

I found Rick Neal's set of blogs about DFRPG to be enlightening and instructive. He also has a few playtest sessions ( an early version of the game, however).

The guys from Penny Arcade and PvP have more than 30 podcasts under their belt: series 1 & 2 all podcasts (newest first)

As for software, I've used Audacity to record and post-process play session audio. It's well-suited to the job as it handles with ease the very large file sizes that you'll get recording hours of audio. As an editor and post-processing tool it is also quite powerful.

Actual people, Actual Play is a good one. Here are some more collected by John Kim.

There's a list of podcasts at rpgpodcasts.com, and you can filter by tags like actual play.

To record, one of the best tools I used is Audio Hijack Pro (costs money, but well spent), coupled with a good omnidirectional microphone I inherited from my past as a musician. Alternatively, you can use the same strategy with a (large) iPod touch or iPhone, which can record audio input. For sharing I strongly suggest a different strategy. Keep notes ...

Someone contacted me about this elsewhere; It is the PaizoCon 2013 Special 13: Secrets of TSR episode of the Know Direction subpodcast of 3.5 Private Sanctuary.

My group started recording a Dresden Files FATE rpg campaign about 6 months ago. You can check it out here: http://burneverythinggaming.podbean.com/category/moonbucks/ We would love to get some feedback.

A good podcast of sessions (with an interview afterwards with Jim Butcher) were run by the people over at The Walking Eye. Fandible has a longer running campaign of The Dresden Files, and the thing I like about it is seeing the evolution of their games over time as they gain a better grasp on the rules and how to use the storytelling tools.

If it's just one person solo, I am not sure either is all that interesting; I probably wouldn't watch such a thing myself. Certainly the narrative flow wouldn't really be, and the technical would only be useful inasmuch it's an instructional "how to play D&D 101." If going for that, I would definitely show how the game fiction and rules interact. I might ...

@ladenedge's suggestion of Knights of the Night is excellent. I also found another decent set of podcasts from Actual People Actual Play. If you look through their back episodes, many of them are focused on Dresden. Ironically, they don't record the actual play sessions, but give good commentary on the game and how to effectively run it.

Episodes 5, 6 and 7 are here: http://rpggeek.com/rpgpodcast/7082/robertson-games According to various blog posts in late 2011, the "first half" of the series is not available for sharing. PS the free one-page dungeon is here: http://www.lulu.com/shop/robertson-games/the-ancient-academy/ebook/product-4860255.html

Vimeo has a video Sons of Kryos 1. I messaged the account there with a link to this thread. Maybe someone who could/would help will see it :)

That podcast was compiled into a playable adventure and released as Storm Tower in Dungeon Magazine #166, with minor changes. As it's a regular article on the D&D Insider site, you can download a PDF copy if you have a D&D insider subscription. A month of D&D Insider subscription costs $10, so you'll be able to download that and whatever else ...

The Walking Eye is a mix of discussion and AP, but I believe AP is the heart of the show. The Gamemaster Show (sorry, I'm still limited to one link per post but it's easy to Google) seem to be having some hiccoughs, but they're rooted in AP shows too. But my favourite, hands down, is Actual People, Actual Play, mentioned above.

I used to subscribe to Radio Free Hommelet, that podcast is part of d20 radio network and includes a pathfinder specific podcast called Chronicles as well as several other d20 based podcasts.

I'd like to advertise for Nerd Poker. Brian Posehn & his friends are absolutely hilarious, playing a mishmash of 2e and 4e, and Sark's storytelling and descriptions are stellar. It's a fun and entertaining romp that's had me hooked since the beginning.

You will need a conference microphone (omni-directional) and some way to connect it to your recorder (i.e. computer). Conference recordings will necessarily have some echo that will diminish quality; unless you want to pad your playing area, you can't avoid it. Making it listenable to others will involve some post-production (filtering and especially ...

Neither the narrative or the technical are as important as the second word you added to both. Flow is what you should focus on. Whether its you and the players fooling around or everyone thumbing through the rule books you need to keep a smooth flow to your recording. Don't be chatting up a storm and suddenly have everyone become quiet as they start looking ...

Middle, leaning a little toward technical — if I'm listening to a "Let's Play," I'm most interested in hearing how the systems work when used.

Think about your goals and needs. If it is primarily a personal recording and tool, audio quality isn't important and you could record directly on a laptop or something (Audacity is great for Windows; if you have a Mac you are all set out of the box). If your goal is listenability, better quality cardioid or omnidirectional mics are a good investment. We ...

I would like to recommend Brian Posehn's Nerd Poker on the Earwolf network as well. He has a great group and they are all very funny. They have been playing together for years. Critical Hit from the Major Spoilers Podcast is great too. Dan Harmon also has a podcast called Harmon Town. They usually play DnD at the end of the episode and they have some ...

There's an incredible wealth of RPG Actual Play podcasts available at http://www.rpgmp3.com/. Pretty much every game setting and system is represented, from mainstays like Pathfinder and the various incarnations of D&D, Savage Worlds etc., to old-school games and indie newcomers. They've got a HUGE back catalogue of recordings, contributed from several ...

For actual play sessions on varied systems (specifically non-D&D), you have: The Gutter Skypes: from Spirit of the Century to Leopard Women of Venus with anything from Fiasco to Wushu in-between. Very story-oriented, not always rules-accurate. Monkeys Took My Jetpack: a spin-off with just as much good spirit and variety Porcelain Llama Theater

There's actually lots on archive.org. Sometimes you find parts out of order but you can generally click on the artist/composer to find the rest.

The Podgecast is one i really enjoy. Great mix of fun! and useful rpg stuff. They're mostly on pretty solid release schedule, so there's always new episodes. The show is a bit heavy on the burning wheel side (which i really don't mind), but they cover all kinds of useful things aside from that. another new one i really enjoy are the Jennisodes hosted by ...
