Podcasts

Thought it might be nice idea to get some discussion on what podcasts you guys listen to. Gaming or otherwise.

The few I make sure I consistantly listen to:

CAGcast - CheapyD and Wombat always amuse me.
Smodcast - Kevin Smith & Scott Mosier, it's like a weekly Evening With...
Joystiq Podcast - Obvious
1up Yours - Again, obvious. Though to be honest, this one is starting to annoy me. Either due to the N'gai love affair or the "I'm such a gaming fanboy" attitude.


Anyway, what are yours?

I've listened to every single episode of GFW Radio. I MISS THAT SHOW. I'm currently exploring GJW and PC Gamer. So far the lulz are not as epic as in GFW :/.

The http://platformbiased.com/ podcast is pretty good.

I fixed that for you. You can thank me later.

I try to listen to our show when I can; I think you can learn a lot for seeing it from the listener viewpoint.

Other than that, I jump around. I try to sample one a week; it just gives me a perspective on where we are compared to others. I will say that I really don't like Joystiq's podcast; I'm not sure what it is, but i really don't enjoy listening to that one.

I listen to This American Life- all the time. I have a 30 minute commute to work so one episode gets me there and back. And I love Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me.

I change up what gaming podcasts I listen to, the most recent and regular on my list have been The Moofcast and The Superhappyfuntimeshow

And of course, In-Game Chat.

Kefkataran's old radio show was the only podcast style thing I ever regularly frequented. Don't really have the time, these days.

I will add to my original list now that I am home and can look at what I actually have subscribed.

Retronauts - Decent show, but I could live with out it.
40k Radio - Pretty good podcast about Warhammer 40,000
Achievement Junkie - Use to be much better, less about games these days. Natalie is a cutie though.
Downloadable Content - Wish this was updated on a more regular basis. Cracks me up without fail.
Giant Bomb - Pretty good overall, I do not use the site at all though.

I have been trying out a few new gaming podcasts of late for a bit of variety:

Player One Podcast
Extra Life Radio
Podtoid
Film Junk Podcast

Nothing outstanding here, probably because I miss most of the in-jokes, and I have only listened to them an episode or two each.

I've also listened to the Dennis Miller Show in podcast form quite a bit, it is generally a pretty decent show and I have always enjoyed Dennis Miller to a degree. I also enjoy that HBO has put out previously aired episodes of Real Time with Bill Maher, they have their moments.

TWiT, 1up FM from time to time, Major Nelson.. and of course, In-Game Chat.

It isn't a podcast anymore. They turned Crash FM into Crash TV - the vidcast of Criterion games and all things Burnout.

I see Giant Bomb coming up a lot here... has anyone else been really frustrated with that site post-launch? The little blog style thing they had going before their site was completely finished was awesome. But that nonsense they have now is just agitating, and it feels to me like they're trying really hard to be edgy just for the sake of being edgy. I don't get the feeling they're being genuine in the least, but I could be wrong. I've gotten completely turned off to that site lately.

Also, they don't put "read more" breaks in their news posts, thus clogging up my google reader. Maybe that's just why I'm angry.

AND ME. Dammit, I promise, I WAS THERE. I edited almost every damn episode, anyhow. LOL

As for me, I really only listen to IGC live (and now the Thursday one), and I listen to This American Life when I'm at the gym. Other than that, the only stuff I get to occasionally is All Songs Considered with Bob Boilen, and The Onion Radio News.

I usually listen to In-Game chat, Penny Arcade's Downloadable Content when it's up, and 1Up Yours or 1Up FM when I feel like it. Pretty short commute means not much time for all that much.

The only podcast I never miss is NPR's All Songs Considered. They play new music that I would never hear anywhere else, and I really recommend it.
