List: Podcasts I listen to

January 3rd, 2009

To celebrate the fact that I’m up to date on all my podcasts. In alphabetical order, from iTunes:

  • 1UP FM. Weekly review of new game releases and previews.

  • 1UP Yours. Weekly discussion of new games and other video game industry things.

  • Apple Keynotes. Yes, I’m a fanboy. So sue me.

  • Battlestar Galactica. The audio quality is normally terrible, but Ronald D Moore’s episode commentary does make up for it.

  • Coverville. One of the best music podcasts out there, dedicated (duh) to cover songs.

  • Crikey. Production needs some work, but still some interesting political commentary from some of the people behind the newsletter.

  • Downloadable Content. The Penny Arcade podcast. Hardly ever updated (they’ve done two since June 2008), but a must listen when they do – a horrifying glimpse inside the minds behind the webcomic.

  • Escape Pod. A Science Fiction short story podcast. Short SF is a perfect fit for audio, although I seem to end up skipping about half the stories these days for one reason or another.

  • gdgt weekly. Gadget nerd podcast. Lots of discussion of new cell phones and such.

  • Irregular Podcast. Pretty much impossible to describe. Weird and insane.

  • Joystiq. Computer and console games discussion.

  • Lan party. PC games discussion.

  • Lyrics Undercover. From the makers of coverville, a 5 min dissection of some song. The only paid subscription podcast I have.

  • Napoleon 101. A detailed (~45) episode history of Napoleon’s life. Now finished with the main run, and doing some special topics. If you’re interested, start at the start.

  • Retronauts: History of computer games, going into a different title each week.

  • The Talk Show. Mac and Apple discussion.

  • The Biography Show. From the maker’s of Napoleon 101, each episode looks at the life of some historical figure.

  • Wall Street Journal. Technically pay, as this is a freebie with my Audible.com subscription. The front page and selected stories from the WSJ. A good way to start the day.
