D&D Audio and Video Actual Play

In my quest to really dig into the game of D&D I've been listening to (and watching) a lot of actual play lately. I can listen to it when I'm doing light editing and research work without it being too interruptive. Here's what I've found lately:

Expedition to the Ancient Academy is a raw recording of an OD&D campaign. I'm about half way through, and it's completely unedited. Expect 40 minutes of dice clattering sounds and muttered numbers as they make characters. Nevertheless there are some great moments of old-school fun.

Wil Wheaton, the Pvp guys, and the Penny Arcade guys play D&D. I haven't listened to this yet, but it has been billed as a great look at 4e.

I Hit it with my Axe is the new video show of Zak's D&D group (from Playing D&D with Porn Stars) playing. They're porn stars, but at the end of the day they're just a D&D group. That's pretty cool. Episode 1 OK, but I expect it to get much better with the upcoming episodes.

You'll enjoy the PVP & PA podcasts. Wil joins them for the second season.

My goldmine for unedited actual play recordings is, which started out a 40 episode play recording of the World's Largest Dungeon, played in D&D3.x. But they've since expanded to a large number of different campaigns and game systems. The group that played WaLD is very entertaining to listen to.
