1''The Drunk and The Ugly'' is a podcast featuring actual plays of {{Tabletop RPG}}s and occasionally other content like interviews and reviews.

Games played include ''TabletopGame/MonstersAndOtherChildishThings'', ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'', ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'', ''TabletopGame/LittleFears'', ''TabletopGame/WildTalents'', and several home brews.
