The Drunk and The Ugly is a podcast featuring actual plays of tabletop role playing games and occasionally other content like interviews and reviews. The group generally strays from dungeon crawlers, opting for more character driven pieces. Games played include Monsters and Other Childish Things, Eclipse Phase, Call of Cthulhu, Little Fears, Wild Talents, and several home brews. Their most popular game, Mrs. Friedas Halfway Home for Terrible and Freakish Children, is run in Monsters and Other Childish things and is about a group of supernaturally "gifted" teenagers living in a halfway home in a small midwestern city.
They also have a let's play channel.
