Top podcasts for escape room fans

From actual-play podcasts to insider tips, there’s something for everyone here.

When I’m not playing escape rooms or writing about escape rooms or talking to people about escape rooms, I like to listen to podcasts about escape rooms.

The Infinite Escape Room

One of my go-to escape room podcasts, and not just because I’m a guest puzzler on there from time to time.

The Infinite Escape Room sees a group of geographically diverse chums each craft and solve a series of puzzles within a given theme.

The puzzles are challenging and their chemistry is great to listen to.

An excellent inside look at running an escape room from a Games Master.

Gemma is a great host who runs through the ins and outs of running a game and what does on behind the scenes.

3D Escape Room: Frequency

A superb audio escape room that plays incredibly well within the limitations of the format. You have an hour to decipher a series of alarming recordings before the government catches up with you.

There’s an intuitive hint system built into the audio itself. It’s a feat of puzzle design and definitely worth checking out.
