  • What podcasts do you listen to?

    I was just listening to the latest Gamers With Jobs podcast, and was thinking I don't have enough podcasts to listen to. In the spirit of sharing, I thought I'd post the shows I listen to, and in return, some of you could share with me what you listen to. Isn't that special?

    Here's the two I regularly listen to:

    Gamers With Jobs Conference Call - An everything-games podcast. They talk about consoles, PC, handheld, everything. They have an incredibly good chemistry, and are hilarious at times. Great production values as well. It can get pretty long and drawn out though.

    FPS Weekly - The name says it all, it's a podcast about First Person Shooters, produced by the new website Gamefire, which spawned from the ashes of TSN. The hosts of the show are brothers, I think, and they also have really great chemistry with one another and use sort of a deadpan humor, which I love. This covers FPS games pretty broadly, but pretty much stays away from sim or tactical FPS play like ArmA or PR. Sorry guys. Still, a really great podcast that hits on all the major FPS game news, and is very succinct and short (in a good way).

    I also listen to and watch the weekly Tales of Heroes podcasts and videocasts. This is a show dedicated to the game Company of Heroes, so if you have no interest in the game, obviously you won't want to watch or listen to the shows. But if you are even slightly considering buying CoH, please watch some of the video replay shoutcasts, they are outstanding!

    What are yours?

    Very good idea.

    http://www.twit.tv General tech talk with multiple net casts. Has many of the personalities from Tech-Tv

    http://www.dotnetrocks.com Focuses on development with the .Net framework. (also see http://www.dnrtv.com)

    http://www.CrankyGeeks.com Dvorak and guests get cranky about tech.

    http://www.hanselminutes.com/ Eclectic show that does some coverage of development on the Microsoft platform.

    http://polymorphicpodcast.com/ another .Net development thing.

    Any body know any good ones that covers development about other platforms? I have heard a couple but they, well, sucked.

      Ricky Gervais
      The Onion
      Penny Arcade - though I'm finding this one pretty boring so far

      I am curious about other funny ones which might exist.

                An excellent funny one is Harry Shearer's 'le show.' My favorite segment is the apologies of the week.

                          Not for the Glory. Not for the Honor. For the Team.

                            http://www.keithandthegirl.com - At least one hour every weekday you'll get a show. There is a ton of content that I can barely keep up by listening during the commute to and from work. They talk about all sorts of issues in the news, their personal lives, and friends. They have celebrity gossip on Thursdays and guests on quite a few shows. I confident you'll be laughing harder than any of the other podcasts listed here.

                            They've won this past year's Podcast Awards for best mature podcast and the people's choice award. This is essentially how podcasting should be done. It's a couple from NYC that have quit their day jobs to do podcasting full-time. I find that other podcasts just aren't funny or don't give me the news that I want.

                            I've listened to Twit and it's got professional quality but the content is rather dull. They cater to listeners that don't know much about technology and the news isn't really conveyed in an interesting way.

                            The PC Gamer podcast is horrible. They talk crap for a bit and barely say anything interesting. It's mostly the reviewers trying to be funny when I want gaming news. Unfortunately, gaming news is reserved for the magazine that has old content by the time it gets to me.

                            - It's who you game with.
