Podcasts: What do you listen to?


#41

Radiolabs latest episode “The Cathedral” talking about That Dragon, Cancer.
It completely broke me.

My favorite podcast at the moment is probably We Should Be Friends, which is a podcast mostly about alt comics and sometimes about video games. The episode about the work of Annie Mok is one of my favorites. https://soundcloud.com/we-should-be-friends

I also really like Woodland Secrets, by merritt kopas. merritt has conversations with writers, artists, and friends and they are really fascinating and wonderful. http://woodlandsecrets.co/

One that just started is Morgan M. Page’s One From The Vaults, exploring trans history. The first episode is terrific. https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/one-from-the-vaults/id1071270085?mt=2

The guys behind the CinemaSins YouTube channel have started a new movie podcast called, SinCast. I’m a fan of CinemaSins videos so I’m hoping to get so actual insight into their thoughts and opinions on films rather than the usual mix of playing up over analysing things for laughs.

If you’re at all interested in interactive fiction (particularly Sorcery or 80 Days), the guys over at Inkle have started publishing some curated table discussions on game design and the wider objectives of games:

(Or on their own blog pages)

I met Joe and Tom at a boardgame meetup recently, and they seem like great guys - and obviously 80 Days is absolutely worth the hype

Awesome! Subscribed on Overcast :slight_smile:

I do love listening to some science podcasts.

My two favourites are The Infinite Monkey Cage (if you’re a fan of QI you need to check this out), and Startalk Radio. Some of the Startalk stuff is a bit uninteresting, but I do love it when they get a science angle interview with celebrities you generally wouldn’t link to science.

just realised that nobody’s mentioned vitriola or my dad wrote a porno which i was sure everyone listened to at least one of

and my current favourite is imaginary advice

Not quite a podcast, but you may get some joy out of History Respawned a (historian) host and specialist guest historians play video games (badly) and talk about the artistic licence taken to make video games set in historical settings, or whatever takes their fancy about the time period.

Highlights are usually the Assassin’s Creed games, because of the large amount of actual people that are used/remixed into the game to give it a sense of historical realism. Today’s episode is on Red Dead Redemption, which could be great. Diablo III, Papers Please, Tropico, Dragon Age: Inquisition and Fallout 4 have also featured

Oh my goodness I can’t believe I didn’t hear about this! I went to a talk by the Inkle at the National Videogame Arcade in Nottingham and chatted to them for a while afterwards, I love hearing their design thoughts.

Erik pointed out The Myths And Legends podcastto me a few weeks back. Ever since Lore failed to quite hit the spot, I’ve been hunting for a really good folklore podcast (to the point that I was thinking of starting my own), and this one is good enough that I’ve paid for the extra episodes and research notes.

I’ve also been binging on music analysis shows. The standouts have been Between The Liner Notes (fascinating music history stuff), Song Exploder (musicians talk about a single one of their songs, including talking about the inspiration and playing individual stems and such), Song by Song (discussing Tom Waits’ music, one song a week in chronological order, with lots of odd digressions), and Tuner (really in-depth, but not especially technical dissection of what makes particular pop songs work).

And I’ve finally got round to listening through a bunch of The Memory Palace, which is just incredible oral portraits of various historical figures who don’t get enough attention. Really affecting stuff.

Bumping this to point out that some of our favorite Canadians (Loading Ready Run) have several podcasts that are a total bitch to link to. Seriously, LRR, you could make it easier.

Here’s one. It’s a fake small-town radio show, and it just charms the hell out of me. It’s adorably silly, and possibly a hidden gem for hardcore LRR fans.


#51

Have just recently discovered I Was There Too.
In depth talks with peripheral actors from some of the most famous movies in history…giving their first hand perspective of the weird stuff that went down while shooting “that famous scene”.
I haven’t listened to a bad one yet.

The Nerdist also hosts (or used to) some episodes of the Alton Browncast, there’s a great one with him and John Hodgman.


#54

Freakonomics’ 12th May Episode - “How to Win Games and Beat People”

Not the kind of place I’d normally expect to hear talking about board games.


#55

I’ve become slightly addicted to Emperors of Rome - if you’re into history, and want to hear two lovely Australians talk about Caligula sleeping with and then officially deifying his sister (a very specific niche, I grant you), this’ll be right up your alley.


#56

I’ve started listening to Mike and Tom Eat Snacks. So far its good, reminds me of We Have Concerns. It’s about snacks.


#57

Pretty much the only podcast I’m listening to lately is The History of English Podcast.

It’s a excellent and very detailed chronological look at the historical events that shaped the modern language, as well as the history of English words and grammar. It starts with how we can use the various relations of English to work backwards to Proto-Indo-European and then use that to identify who these people were and were they lived.


#58

If you are interested in the Star Wars Force and Destiny role playing system*, then I can recommend the Dice for Brains podcast. A snappily edited playthrough that is surprisingly engaging in it’s own right. There is a bit of a magical dynamic in the group that is really inspiring for me.

*or just Star Wars in general, or just role playing, or just a rip-roaring yarn that makes me forget that IRL I am actually wielding a dish cloth and not a lightsaber

  • SUSD Obviously.
  • Daft Souls Also somewhat obvious. Not actually a Dark Souls podcast!
  • One Shot Podcast A podcast where talented, and very funny improv types from Chicago play a variety of RPG systems. Very good stuff.
  • Campaign Podcast Originally a spin-off from the One Shot Podcast, Campaign Podcast is an ongoing campaign in the Star Wars Edge of the Empire system. Also very funny, but great storytelling with a masterful GM.
  • The Worst Idea of All Time Podcast A couple of Kiwi comedians watch the movie Grown Ups 2 every week for a year. Listening to their anguish is delicious.
  • Hello, from the Magic Tavern A man from Chicago accidentally fell through a portal into the strange magical world of Foon. Regular interviews with the creatures of the world.

@Illessa have you listened to the newest Invisibilia yet? The first of the second season?

I really really liked the first part about the oilrig people, the second one was amusing, which is nice but didn’t make me want to share it, unlike the other.

Also, to stay on topic:
Two Dope Queens has been my favourite comedy podcast as of late. You might know Jessica Williams of the Daily Show, who is a co-host here. Basically what happens is that the hosts are funny and make jokes and then they introduce you to other people who then continue being funny while standing. One of the cooler things is that the stand-up guests are always a diverse group of people. They make sure that there’s at least one woman on each show and I’ve heard several LGBT people on there too.
Listen to the first one if you’re curious.
