I always listen to the Bombcast on my long runs. I'm training for a marathon in the spring, we'll see if I actually go through with this! This show is great to listen to while working out, it takes your mind off the monotony that can be running. The length of the show is usually the amount of time that my long training runs are, so it works out great! I'm also a busy student, during the school year I don't really have that much time to browse for gaming news. The Bombcast is awesome because I get news, entertainment, and exercise!
" Personaly, whenever the bombcast hits on Tuesdays, I download it on my Ipod (usualy through the RSS feed because the itunes version isnt usualy up until later on or the next day) and I listen to it while doing my excercise. I walk 10 laps around the park (which takes me about a hour, so I have plenty of Bombcast left usualy afterwards) then later that day I walk the dog 6 laps around the park (which takes me about 30 minutes or whatever), that total being about 5 miles a day of walking and usualy im doing that while still listening to the podcast. So Jeff, Brad, Vinny and Ryan are actualy benefiting my health in a way. So good on them. "I do almost the same, except I jump around on my trampoline while listening to the bombcast. The thing is if my neighbors see my laughing while jumping on a trampoline they probably think I'm crazy... :D
Yeah, I don't listen to it on Tuesday. Will basically download Wednesday afternoon most weeks (since I'm in Australia and it doesn't get uploaded earlier) then it'll last me for the rest of the week during my daily bus trip to Uni. Used to just sit and listen to it in one hit on a Wednesday while working on computer stuffs though.
I either play FIFA--since it's the only game I feel comfortable playing while ignoring the audio and that allows me to focus on both the gameplay and the Bombcast--or go running/working out in the gym. I don't like doing it during other activities, because I always fearing missing some parts of the Bombcast. I used to lay in bed listening to it, but I found I kept falling asleep after a while and missing some portion of, which forced me to try and find the part where I left off. Therefore, I only listen to music in bed anymore.
I might listen in the car going to work on Wednesday, but usually I pump it through the Xbox on Tuesday night. I have a few "Podcast games" like Puzzle Quest, Forza, Castle Crashers, and Geometry Wars, and it's a good way to get the Bombcast and some gaming at the same ime.
I usually don't listen to them until Wednesday when I am out delivering pizzas. Now that I have an hour commute each way to my college classes three times a week I think I am going to need to find some more amazing podcasts. Any suggestions? I already listen to all the Whiskey Media ones except the anime one.
