I found out I'll be taking the train a lot more soon, about 2 hours back and forth...plus extra time in the metro. 
 
This is my current lineup, and some of them are daily, while some are weekly.  Some I watch at the night before, so it'd be pointless to watch them again on the train. 
 
Anything else I can add onto my list?

I listen to all the other Whiskey Media site podcasts. I like them. 
 
It's nice to know that someone else on Giant Bomb still listens to the Hotspot.

Also the Sarcastic Game podcasts are really funny, and somewhat informative, I'd definitely recommend those.

"Stuff You Should Know" is pretty fun and interesting. 
 
Related to gaming, I'd recommend " Irrational behavior", "A Life Well Wasted" and "Weekend Confirmed".

Dude...don't mock me.  Those idiots haven't updated the podcast RSS in half a year, I'm forced to go to the site.  >.> 
 
Still love those bastards.  Co-Host is the man.  :P 
 
@ZanzibarBreeze: Thanks for that list, I shall check them all out.

Well, I would certainly place Weekend Confirmed miles before the Cheap Ass Gamer podcast. Weekend Confirmed is from Shacknews, not 1UP, though headed by ex-1UP editor Garnett Lee. The top three gaming podcasts at this time are the Giant Bombcast, Weekend Confirmed, and The Oddcast, without question, and if you have a quota of three gaming shows I would throw out your other two and convert to those. But that's just me. :)

Not really. They just don't cover the Wii a whole lot. Some PC but mostly 360 and PS3. But they are still a blog site. So they are no industry geniuses like GB. Still. A listen can't hurt. They do have a PS exclusive podcast and an all lady podcast and lots of community podcasts. So good variety,
#16 Posted by Marz (5666 posts) -
@KaosAngel: 
nah, i think only Garnett Lee is the only former 1up employee, Brian Leahy and Jeff Cannata have different origins.

Drunk Tank podcast by Roosterteeth. IGN Gamescoop. And for something really entertaining and occasionally informative in a crazy sort of way: The Alex Jones Show.
#18 Posted by TheSilentTruth (1136 posts) -

Diggnation and The Totally Rad Show.

#19 Posted by SethPhotopoulos (5359 posts) -
@KaosAngel: They changed the itunes thing a while ago.  It's still a bit irregular though.
#20 Edited by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -
@SethPhotopoulos:   They need to get on it, Spill is the best movie site for reviews and their daily podcast shows are hilarious to no end.  Fucking love Co-Host, best robot mankind ever made.

@ZanzibarBreeze: I'm friends with David from CAG, so I like hearing his points, and GameSpot cause I don't have a problem with 'em and been listening since day one.  I will try the other two, and hold you do it. 
 
@TheSilentTruth: I watch Diggnation Live when I can, or just the stream...and I hate the Totally Rad Show...Alex is an idiot.  >.> 
 
@McGhee_the_Insomniac: Alex Jones has a podcast...well then, I shall have to check that out.

Mysterious Universe 
 
Its about the paranormal but even if you don't believe in that shit (like me), its still pretty interesting. Plus they sometimes talk about videogames

#28 Posted by TomA (2531 posts) -

Outlandish is funny, it's suppose to be about WoW but there's three of them on the show and all three don't play that much and one doesnt play at all. And they have a great off topic segment called 3.5. The Gary Roman Rob podcast is my favorite podcast of all time. And it has no regular subject. The CBC podcasts are good. I might listen to more news shows and stuff but I can't stand the American stuff it's all full of crap.

The only other Whiskey Media podcast I listen to is Screened, and yeah, I still listen to the Hotspot too.  No shame. 
 
Other great podcasts (in my personal opinion) include ESPN's Pardon the Interruption, Weekend Confirmed, Gamers with Jobs, Idle Thumbs (although it's ending soon), and IGN's GameScoop.

MBMBAM!  

 "My Brother, My Brother and Me is an advicecast for the modern era featuring three real-life brothers: Justin, Travis and Griffin McElroy. For about one-half to two-thirds of an hour each week, with new episodes dropping every Monday, the brothers McElroy will answer any query sent our way, each fielding questions falling into our respective areas of expertise. We operate like a streamlined, advice-generating machine. It’s both terrifying and humbling to behold."

I like Idle Thumbs although that podcast may be ending soon.

I also recommend Common Sense and Hardcore History.  The one thing that repels me from most politics related shows is the fact that the hosts tend to support their party, right or wrong. Dan Carlin, on the other hand, is independent, and because he has no alignment with the major parties, he can hold them to an equal level of scrutiny, and I find that even when I don't personally agree, I still find he leaves me something to think about.
 Hardcore History is just pure excellence, just listen to the episodes about the Ostfront.

Thank you so much for pointing out this great podcast!
#35 Posted by gunslingerNZ (1921 posts) -
@KaosAngel: Listen to the Tested podcast. Also check out Stuff You Should Know, the podcast from howstuffworks.com. If you don't mind adding another gaming podcast I'd suggest the joystiq podcast or weekend confirmed.

I still listen to the hotspot as well but I increasingly wonder why. I kind of liked when Tor was the host but I find Brendan Sinclair is a bit dull, nothing against him personally though. If it wasn't for Tom Mcshea, Kevin Van Ord and Justin Calvert's occasional appearances I'd probably drop it.

Skeptoid is my podcast of choice. I can't believe some people actually believe the sort of stuff he dispels.

Smodcast and blow hard.

#39 Edited by Boogey131 (46 posts) -
Radiolab is my personal favourite podcast. It's a public radio show similar in tone to This American Life, based out of New York about science and other such stuff. I can't think of a way to explain it to make it not sound geeky, because it pretty much is. If you're into story-telling though, you should definitely check out one of their hour long podcasts up on iTunes, some episodes are better than others, but just take a look at the subjects and pick whatever one picks your fancy. 
 
My Brother, My Brother and Me is probably the funniest podcast out there. Justin, Griffin(both from Joystiq) and Travis McElroy give advice to mostly absurd questions from Yahoo Answers, formspring, email and occasionally voicemail. When it's your run of the mill advice question, they twist it and create weird ass scenarios. Good chemistry between them and the insanity of the internet makes it a hilarious 40-60 minutes. 
  
Smodcast used to be the funniest show around but has recently been lacklustre. I recommend if you are going to check it out to go back to the earlier episodes, anywhere between 1 and 80. Goofy conversations that can turn hilarious. 

And just to throw one video-game related podcast out there, if you haven't already listened to Robert Ashleys A Life Well Wasted, check that out. It's only got like 6 episodes out, but it's not your typical gaming podcast. Covers ground no other gaming podcast has even attempted to and the production on it is great.

The Nerdist Podcast is awesome for any fan of nerd culture or stand-up comedy. Chris Hardwick does an amazing job as host and they've had some surprisingly big names on (Jon Hamm, Rainn Wilson).
#41 Posted by mcwingstar (76 posts) -

"Stuff You Should Know" Is good for learning EVERYTHING on random junk you never knew you found interesting. 
"WTFpod with Marc Maron" super-insecure comedian interviewing other insecure comedians, not for everyone, but I kinda diggit. 
"This American Life" you guys might know this from NPR, but a really solid set of true emotional stories. 
 
Those are my non-whiskey picks.

#42 Posted by dpedal1 (191 posts) -
This American Life is the best non-gaming podcast in my opinion. 
 
The other whiskey media podcasts are really good too, with the Giantbombcast, Behind the Screened Door, and the Comic Vine Podcast, my hobbies are covered, with the exception of literature (if anyone has a good podcast about books a recommendation would be much appreciated).

The Complete Guide To Everything:  http://tcgte.com/ 
Not actually an informative podcast about everything, but rather a couple of dudes shooting the shit about various topics on a weekly basis. Unlike most podcasts featuring two random dudes (there are a lot of them), I find these two guys to be genuinely funny and entertaining. You should give some random episode a listen and see what you think. For a not so random episode I recommend listening to Sleuthing.

#44 Posted by DeF (4955 posts) -
Out of the Game with Jeff Green, N'gai Croal, Shawn Elliott and  Robert Ashley is a very excellent podcast (although they only do episodes every now and then - just one this year so far, for example but they did 17 last year). They talk about a lot of different things, games are just a part of the mix. And the best thing is: it's usually quite an intelligent discussion and less of a frat boy chitty chatty affair

I know a lot of people like Garnett Lee, but this guy is the Roger Ebert of the game industry. He picks everything apart... and then he plays Yakuza.
 
I would recommend the Idle Thumbs podcast... but I think they're done.
#46 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

Out of the Game- listen to the backlog 
 
This american life was not bad 
 
I highly suggest everyone in this thread listen to My Brother, My Brother and Me(MBMBaM for short) great advice podcast with justin, travis and griffen McElroy
