All of us here on Giant Bomb are familiar with podcasts to some extent. There a wonderful way to pass time on you're way to work, when you travel, or otherwise have long periods of time to spare. I listen to quite a few podcasts, but have a few that are considered my favorite. Obviously the Bombcast is a given.Besides that, what are some of you're favorite Podcasts? Can you recommend any good ones? Also, it doesn't have to be strictly gaming. A few of mine are The Comedy Button, Weekend Confirmed, Laser Time, and Rebel FM. All can be found on Itunes

I really only faithfully listen to the bombast. But once in awhile I do,listen to gamespot gameplay and I think it's quite good most of the time.

#5 Posted by Peacemaker (1104 posts) -

Bombcast (obviously). This is Only a Test, Joe Rogan Experience, Still Untitled: Adam Savage Project, and the Comedy Button. Radio Lab too. There's a lot of podcasts I would listen to but there's just not enough time.

#6 Edited by Christoffer (1816 posts) -

I listen to these podcasts during my weeks:

  • The Bombcast (of course)
  • Mike and Tom eats snacks (Michael Ian Black and Tom Cavanagh. Used to be weekly but it's quite Irregular now, sadly)
  • Stuff you should know (I've been listening to every episode since forever. It's just a habit now. I like the guys and I like learning about random stuff)
  • The Atheist Experience (I almost left this out becuase of political correctness. But I actually think it's a great podcast whether you're religious or not. If you like debating that is)
  • Freakonomics Radio (I think I will stop following this. It's been really hit or miss lately. Mostly miss.)
  • This is only a test (no need to introduce this one)
  • 8-4 podcast (it's about japania)

I also listen to a few swedish podcast that I wont bother to list.

In that order

Stuff You Should Know and Car Talk are the best podcasts of all podcasts.

+ Mysterious Universe.

I'm getting tired of the Bombcast, too many boring tangents.

Sorry. I tried to look up if there we're any other threads and couldn't find them. I think it's still good to bring it back up though.It might let somebody find a podcast they never would've.

Bombcast

This is only a Test

Sill Untitled: The Adam Savage Project

My Brother My Brother and Me

The Spill Podcasts: ACOCO, LDT, and LEOG. Remote Viewing would be too much for me and I don't listen to the Loading Bar because nobody there seems to know a lot about video games.

I just recently started Second Funniest Podcast because of this.

#14 Edited by ThePickle (4182 posts) -

Harmontown, Comedy Bang Bang, Professor Blastoff, and Call Chelsea Peretti.

It was more of a "the podcasts I listen to haven't really changed that much" thing.

#16 Posted by Alta (3 posts) -

Bombcast, Comedy Bang Bang, In Our Time, The Football Ramble and Filmspotting

I'll probably need to start listening to more than these thanks to my Euro Truck Simulator 2 addiction, perfect game to go with podcasts.

#17 Posted by Sergio (2122 posts) -

I only listen to the Giant Bombcast, 8-4 Play, /Filmcast, and Sword & Laser. Rest of the time I'm listening to music or audiobooks.

#18 Posted by RecSpec (3816 posts) -

Man, this has changed quite a bit. I'll listen to the Bombcast regularly. Then sometimes This is Only a Test and the BS Report.

I feel like we have this thread once every three months. Anyway,

  • Comedy Bang Bang
  • Art of Wrestling
  • My Brother, My Brother and Me (though I'm really behind on this)
I used to listen to 8-4 Play and This Is Only A Test but when my time for listening to podcasts got dramatically reduced I had to cut both of these.

  • Bombcast
  • The Dave Dameshek Football Program
  • Adam Carolla Show
  • Vergecast
  • Sklarbro Country

    Have stopped listening to This is Only a Test a while ago as I found it to be too slanted towards Apple talk though I like the personalities.
#31 Posted by JEC03 (900 posts) -

The Axe Factor they have a real passion for gaming and most of the time there interested in the same games as me they having really good discussions.

IGN gamescoop is ok usually just watch it then listen to it.

Marcus Beer the annoyed gamer not really a podcast but one of my favorite video segments.

PC gamer podcast really boring sometimes but other times great.

#32 Posted by PillClinton (3291 posts) -

Bombcast

This Is Only a Test (although increasingly less often, as Gary's been gone fucking forever, Will's on paternity leave, and while I like Norm, Wes, and Joey, none of them have enough personality to make the podcast listenable for me.)

Star Talk Radio

Hospital Records Podcast

Toolroom Knights

Joe Rogan Experience

#33 Posted by Hunter5024 (5672 posts) -

My job gives me a lot of free time for podcasting, so I try out different stuff all the time. On my ipod right now are the Bombcast, This American Life, 8-4, both Comicvine podcasts, mbmbam, and Dungeons and Doritos. I've looked very hard for a movie podcast too, but I just can't find any critics who have good taste, and they often talk about movies I have no desire to see.

#34 Posted by natedawg_kz (234 posts) -

Podcast Beyond

TGS Podcast

Roosterteeth Podcast (not really game related)

MBMBaM. 
 
And I'm really warming up to The Besties.

#36 Posted by Nev (548 posts) -

I quite like the 'Giant Bombcast', I highly suggest it for anyone who is a fan of Giant Bomb.

But yes, I only listen to the Bombcast really, and I previously regularly listened to This is Only a Test, but the lack of Gary of late has caused me to get a bit behind on it.

Yeah, movie podcasts can be tough. I've yet to find a good regular as well; it used to be the Screened podcast, but that blew the fuck up, unfortunately.

Same here, I think the fact that they didn't come from movie backgrounds gave them a huge advantage because it allowed them to be more in touch with real audiences.

#44 Posted by DarthOrange (3861 posts) -

Podcast Beyond and Keepin' it Reel. Every once in a while I'll listen to Laser Time and Cape Crisis as well. The bombcast is waaay to long for me to listen to and it often drags on the most mundane topics.

#45 Posted by super2j (1683 posts) -

giantbomb, tested when they have cool 3rd wheels. Comedy bang band, caped crisis, lasertime, mbmbam.

and my new obsession: how did this get made. Its a hilarious podcast about the worst movies with Paul sheer, Jason Manzukis (i think he was Borat) and June,

so great.

#46 Posted by Zekhariah (697 posts) -

Gaming wise, I mostly like the obvious suspects (Gamers with Jobs, Weekend Confirmed, Quarter to Three, 8-4, Bombcast, etc).

Getting away from that, I think these are good:

The Skeptics Guide to the Universe - The topics are always drawn from science, skepticism, and general anti-quackery related to current events/trends. And sometimes particular scientific topics are covered in detail if they are items that are frequently misunderstood. Several of the people on it are MDs, so crackpot medical items tend to get mentioned (and appropriately bludgeoned).

Sword and Laser Podcast - Fantasy and Sci-Fi book coverage. Their main thing is a online show (that is also pretty decent), but you get a lot of good suggestions just out of the audio companion podcast.

Eh, well the bombcew often hates games I love and love games I don't care for, doesn't stop me from listening to them. For me, podcasts are all about personality, chemistry, and delivery instead whether or not their tastes line up with mine.

Behind the Screened Door just never did anything for me. For as good writers as Rorie and Alex are individually and as entertaining their video features were, I just never found the podcasting chemistry between the two to be all that entertaining. From what few episodes I listened to, I often found the conversations to entail Alex talking a long time about something and then Rorie going "yeah that is interesting" or "hum..." and then move on to another subject without pursuing further conversation on the subject. And each time either of them would try to make a joke, they'd just leave eachother hanging without a followup. Either Rorie will go "humm..." when Alex tries to start a joke or when Rorie tries to start a joke, Alex will think he's being serious.

Yeah I've been listening to their audio reviews. I find them to be the equivalent of Giant Bomb for movies in that they are 4 guys who are good friends and have good chemistry and have entertaining conversation. They all have different tastes and often have opposing opinions which leads to some good back and forth debate exploring different pros and cons in a film. Though they do play up for laughs more so than the bombcast. I listen to ACOCO and LDT too.

I can't fucking stand The Loading Bar guys though.

#48 Posted by Hunter5024 (5672 posts) -

@MiniPato: Yeah I definitely don't think it was perfect or anything, it was only on the episodes where they got a third person in the room that it really was everything it could be, because that would drum up the energy a bit. And I don't necessarily think that their tastes have to align with mine to make it entertaining, but listening to a movie podcast where they talk about movies I don't want to see, reference movies I haven't heard of, and gloss over the films I find interesting totally sucks.

#49 Posted by Juxter (3 posts) -

Giant bombcast, No agenda, the morning stream, security now. those are my four mainstays.

  • MonsterTalk
  • CAGcast
  • the JV Club
  • MBMBAM podcast

  • WTF with Marc Maron
  • Super Joystiq Podcast

Those are my favorites... I've got more, but I don't keep up with those. I loved walking around my University campus, watching people stare at me whenever I laughed. Too bad, I graduated.
