Default What are your OTHER podcasts?

I listen to TWiT and the CAGcast, but I guess those are usual suspects for us nerd folk.

I've recently discovered Dan Carlin's Hardcore History, which seems excellent so far. It's a history podcast that focuses on the human peculiarities and sociological implications of historical events, as opposed to the dry academic approach that seems to be more common.

This American Life.

TEDtalks audio.

And sometimes I listen to travel podcasts, though I haven't found one I really like yet.

GFW Radio always. Retronauts when we get it. 1up Yours sometimes.

Edit: I knew I was forgetting one. 1upFM.

GFW Radio, 1Up FM (they should drop the normal part and just do backlog), 1Up Yours, and Giant Bombcast.

i really don't like 1upfm. It's just not doing it for me.

I listen to the other 1up casts, Coverville, XLR8R, SolipsisticNation, Electronicast, Yo La La (french hip hop!), and a handfull of other music podcasts.

Twit stuff, specifically The Tech Guy and Macbreak Weekly. NPR shows like Wait Wait Dont Tell Me, Radio Lab and of course This American Life. I've been really into You Look Nice Today with Merlin Mann and friends as well as Smodcast for comedy. Then of course Retronauts and 1upFM. Suttnet and Kohler are great. Since I don't have cable, I listen to Around the Horn and PTI through podcast. I listen to more but these are my favorite. Total podcast nerd here. I do podcasts rather than watch tv. I literally dont watch any television except for when Lost is on or when Playoff sports comes around. Except basketball, I wary that all season long.

The Bugle - Audio Newspaper For A Visual World
Jordan, Jesse GO!
WNYC's Radio Lab
You Look Nice Today

The Bugle is a couple of brits doing a weekly satirical "audio newspaper" which is really great, usually runs about a half hour. Jordan, Jesse GO! is a couple of guys talking about stuff for an hour, usually a lot of pop culture talk, very funny. WNYC's Radio Lab is a very interesting very well produced science show for the layman, even if you're not too interested in science it's still fun to listen to. You Look Nice Today is three guys talking about stuff (never heard that before!), a lot of pop culture stuff and kind of obtuse humor. (I'm sure I didn't do any of these justice, so I recommend just trying them!)

I used to have a ton of podcasts on my playlist, but I didn't have enough time to keep up with them so the list got trimmed down.

My current favorites are Retronauts and the Penny Arcade podcast. As they both pop up pretty rarely I save them for good long stretches of data loading/book shelving.

I also will listen to the Wizards of the Coast D&D podcast from time to time, and I'm trying out a letterboxing podcast. Listening to a bunch of people playing D&D in The World's Largest Dungeon podcast amuses me and is a good time killer. After reading "The Areas of My Expertise" I downloaded the Little Gray Book Lectures podcast. I like it, too bad it doesn't update any more. I like the 1up show, but I always have battery issues when watching videos. I also keep some Strongbad and Making Fiends on the ipod for cartoon emergencys.

1up Yours, GFW Radio, and Retronauts. Honestly, I want some non-gaming ones, but can't seem to find any that make me like it enough ot subscribe.

Like Shivam said, 1up FM is really not doing it for me.

Talking Time should have its own podcast where we throw a group of posters in and they fight to the death.

Episode 1: Brickroad and Tomm discuss snaking, double meat and the finer points of Mega Man

May I suggest the name: Tyrant Cagematch.

I'll agree 1Up FM isn't that great, but I really like Backlog so far. We'll see how it develops.

I didn't mention Retronauts because I thought it was a given, but whatever, Retronauts.

I don't listen to any podcasts ever, but I would listen to one where Tomm and I just bitched at each other about whatever.

Most of the 1up podcasts, minus Sports and GFW. I also like the Penny Arcade casts (those guys talk funny), and recently the D&D walkthrough podcast with the PA & PvP guys. The seemingly defunct Ask Mike mini-cast over at Rifftrax was good while it lated.

And that's it! I'm actually surprised I keep up with as many as I do, since I'm not a huge fan of talk radio in the first place. Are there any really funny ones out there? I'd be really into a John Hodgman podcast.

I've thought about pitching this idea for awhile, but I can't really justify going through the motions because it would either a) be some of us talking about games and doing absolutely nothing new from every other podcast, or b) be about stuff going on in the forum, which, duh, you can read the forums for. Seems entirely pointless (and yet, my heart longs for it...).

You tried the Little Gray Book Lectures podcasts? There's not too many, but I was very happy for about a week there.

Take out Legendary Thread too and this is me, since I'm still not convinced that GFW doesn't just talk about PC games. Since I have zero interest in PC gaming, the ratio of noise-to-signal in GFW should better skew towards noise for me to try it

Um, the Harvard Business Review video podcast? It's not exactly an easy pick for the treadmill or the gym bike, though.

I'll be mining this thread for suggestions. I'd especially like World News podcasts, science-stuff, and movie podcasts. And on that last subject, since my only experience is with 1up's stuff, a similar approach would be great.

Yeah. Just being a profanity-free, alcohol-free version of 1up Yours won't cut it much longer for the Kid's Table. I liked it when EGM Live had Shoe and Jennifer, because it had an actual structure which gave it a tighter focus, but that's long in the past now. I like the Backlog, especially since I can (so far) relate to their subject, but I'll probably lose interest in it in a hurry once they tackle games I don't care about.
