I love podcasts. I guess I wouldn’t have one of my own if I didn’t.
I thought I’d list my current favorites as they relate to this website:
The Dice Tower – Actually this one is new for me. It covers board games. It seems to have an absolutely enormous following. Whenever I find a site like this I wonder what other podcasts I’m missing that I just haven’t found. It gives me hope for the podcast ‘industry.’ I’m not sure how much I’ll follow this one yet but it’s off to a great start for me.
Fear the Boot - This is possibly my favorite podcast. It certainly is the one I immediately listen to when it is released. I feel like I know those guys so well. It’s a community I sometimes want to plug into, but haven’t. It usually drops on Wednesdays and I like listening to it while driving over to Sean’s in Pearland for our game. It puts me in the proper mood.
Gamers with Jobs – I like this video gaming podcast. These guys are kinda in the same position in life that I am – that is to say older and with kids – and I can relate to the things they say pretty easily.
Reckless Dice – Sean recommended this podcast and it is a good one. They are just starting out, and I hope it sticks. I have listened to all 4 episodes and they make me think that Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is the rpg that I should be playing, not hack and slash endless battles 4e.
RPGMP3 – This one is old faithful. Except Hal isn’t hosting at the moment, and those are the best ones. I guess he had drama and I hate that because the Texans podcasts were so good. Still, the community actual play sessions are worthwhile. I’m enjoying the Pathfinder series right now, it has good production values and a good dm, plus I have some interest in Pathfinder.
Wizard’s D&D Podcast – I still listen to this, when it is released. I used to think that D&D was the only worthwhile rpg, but that has changed in the past year.
2old2play – another video gaming podcast. I love this one, although these guys are pretty raw. Another one I listen to immediately when it drops. I rarely agree with Codemonkey but I sure enjoy listening to his crazy rants.
Final Score – This is the third video podcast I listen to. I’ve followed Scott Johnson for about 6 years now, and I really like his stuff. I’m nervous he is spreading himself a little too thin.
So those are the gaming type podcasts that I listen to. Maybe you will enjoy them as well.
I do listen to lots of other podcasts, but this is a good list for this site. I’m very lucky in that basically it is my job to drive all around Houston stopping periodically to fix stuff at hospitals. So I just cruise around all day listening to stuff…..it’s nice.
