Yes, it's the return of the Quick 6, my method of quickly running down...well, 6 of something. Today's topic for the Quick 6 is 6 Podcasts I Recommend. Whether you're staring down that long daily commute or doing chores around the house, gaming podcasts can help the time go by while keeping you engaged with one of your favorite hobbies.
Now, Fear the Boot is likely the most popular and well-known of the gaming podcasts, so I won't rehash what folks already know. Here are some others of varying popularity/notoriety that I try to listen to when I can:
1) All Games Considered--This is one of the best general-purpose gaming shows, with
news, reviews, and a couple of discussion topics each show. This is a fairly veteran entry in terms of podcasts, and I'm a happy long-time listener.
2) Atomic Array--This is another great all-purpose show, excelling at covering new products. Also has a great sense of community among listeners and contributors.
3) The Tome Show--I've been privileged enough to be a guest on this show, and I am amazed at how the keep up the quality episode after episode. If you want a podcast with some good guests and reviews, this'll be a good stop for you.
4) Animalcast--Crude, loud, and susceptible to lengthy non-gaming tangents. I still dig it. When they do actually talk about games, it's usually funny and enthusiastic, and occasionally priceless.
5) The Game Master Show--As a Game Master, I really appreciate this show. Aside from the good interviews, they often break down a GM's issue or topic and really discuss it at length.
6) RPG Haven Podcast--Released on a monthly basis, this podcast nonetheless does a great job of presenting 1 or 2 topics per episode, and really covering them. Often does features a bit off the beaten path, which I like.
Of course, theren are many other gaming podcasts out there to browse through, if you're so inclined. And if you're still hungry for more podcasting, there's always our show, RPG Circus. But I'll let you decide on that one for yourself.
