What podcasts do you listen to?

Phil and I are learning what makes for a good podcast episode and we'd love to know what other ones you listen to! Gaming or Otherwise.

I haven't jumped into Boardgame podcasts enough, mostly only Heavy Cardboard.

Other podcasts, The Dan Lebatard Show with Stugotz and Revisionist History are my go-to's

Hardcore History is so very good. I don't listen to it as often as I'd like because it's also so very long.

Yes they are long, but I love them. He doesn't pay very often, so it is possible to stay caught up.

Wow that's a long list hahaha. When do you typically listen to them? Is there such a thing as your "top" among those?

I have to spend a lot of time waiting, it is part of working in Central America. Waiting and while driving is when I listen to a lot of them.

I generally like Ludology where I get a small peek behind the curtain.

I really do enjoy "so very wrong about games." They do a pretty good job explaining in depth why they do, or don't, like a game. I often disagree with them, but they do remain informative.

I love listening to SuSd, this is probably my favorite of the gaming podcasts. They are just such consummate writers/producers. And while I disagree with some of their reviews, I do find them so helpful.

One fairly new one I want to give a shout out to is Solosaurus. I just started listening to them in the last month or so. I have listened to a lot of back episodes by now. They focus specifically on reviewing solo games. They are pretty new, and still sort of getting the hang of it. But, they are making a great effort, and producing great content. If you are at all interested in solo board-gaming, I highly recommend checking them out.
