Shameless podcast plug extravaganza

by

Regrettably I wasn’t around last weekend, so I didn’t have time for my usual malarkey. In lieu of this, I have devised a plan, one so cunning that I couldn’t have even thought of it myself. Ladies and gentlemen, it is time for SHAMELESS PODCAST PLUG #1. Sounds like my bangin’ Portal 2 pun will have to wait a bit.

The Rock Paper Shotgun Electronic Wireless show
Good honest chaps talking about good honest games. There are a lot of gaming podcasts out there, but these guys have a certain comforting rapport that makes British chaps blathering about games sound like listening to some fine jazz.

Gamers With Jobs Podcast
This feels like a genuine, spiritual cousin of RPS in which a bunch of passionate gamers, and game journalists alike share their thoughts on games, game design and everything else imaginable including technology, board games and lamenting the fact insulting anyone would forego their journalistic integrity.

Giant Bombcast
Okay. I haven’t actually listened to this one, but I was put onto it by Gamers With Jobs. From what I hear, it’s a great podcast packed full of awesome content – weighing in at around a hefty 2.5 hours. Giant Bomb have great material, so this one is bound to be entertaining.

Insomniac Games Full Moon Show
I was a little hesitant to include this, not because it isn’t good, but because it’s specific to a certain, awesome, company. This is a great podcast. Obviously, I’m into game design, so the thought of an entire podcast, packed to the gills with developers talking about development is very exciting news indeed. This one might not be as appealing if you’re not an Insomniac fan, as they tend to talk about what they’re up to a lot, but it’s definitely worth a listen.

Australian Gamer Podcast
A very entertaining podcast filled with variety, crushing criticism and occasionally Yahtzee. I like this podcast for a number of reasons, but primarily because they let their discussions rampage in which ever direction they see fit, leaving little room for closeted opinions or factual accuracy

Rum Doings.
Well, this isn’t a gaming podcast but I don’t really care, it demands your ears. This one is made up of soothingly spoken John Walker of Rock Paper Shotgun fame, and impassioned aristocrat Nick Mailer as they don’t talk about pressing British topicality, and instead drink fine rum and engage in off-topic discussions of great import.
