Shocking Gasp is a serialized actual play D&D 5e podcast with a high fantasy theme focusing on a balance between comedic and dramatic character roleplaying. When an enigmatic being falls from the sky, four strangers investigate and find themselves on the run from a superhuman force. Now they must fight for their survival while attempting to unravel the mystery of who the being was and why they're being hunted.
Shocking Gasp debuted in September 2018 with five introductory "Prelude" episodes introducing the cast and main characters. Campaign One began in October 2018 and is ongoing. Periodically, a Shocking Spotlight episode will be released highlighting personal interests of the cast. As of August 2019, Shocking Gasp has 33 episodes and over 7,000 unique downloads or streams.
