I do a podcast (or rather, am part of a rotation of hosts these days) with my brother and a friend of ours with the ridiculously overcomplicated title of Please Do Not Turn Off Your Console. It’s over here, and so is the RSS feed. Our early episodes are pretty bad as we figure everything out, but we find our feet somewhere around episode 60. Usually we post every week, but real life has gotten in the way recently - we’ll pick it back up next week.
The main page also has some stream archives on it, because we do streams. Most recently, my brother has been going through Dark Souls 2, and I have been going through Mass Effect 1. It’s all here.
Personally, I use Simplecast, which handles RSS feed creation and gives you a nice clean website. Klepek used it for his Lost Rewatch podcast, back in the day. (It costs like $8/month, less per podcast if you have more than one.)
As for audio recording and editing, I use Audacity (which is free), recording from a Blue Snowball USB mic. We record two people on one mic, which is less than ideal, but it’s worked for us so far.
I’ve been working on a half-podcast/half-let’s play of the Baldur’s Gate series over on YouTube for about half a year.
We’ve done the first game, Siege of Dragonspear, and we are now a little way into the second game. It’s been a really great experience to take some time with these games, and if you like those games then you will probably enjoy our longform ruminations on the series, role-playing, and the role of the state in a refugee crisis on the Sword Coast.
I do a podcast with my friends! It’s called Fireside Friends! It’s our little book club-type thing where we choose something to watch, read, or play and discuss it. Doing it has expanded my tastes a lot and has helped me get out of the Gamer Hole that I was in for a while. As it turns out, exploring different art forms is cool and good!
Hello humans! I do a weekly podcast about PlayStation stuff. It’s me and my best friend doing some goofs, talking about games we played, and some news. Some of our jokes don’t stick but we try not to hurt anyone.
But they’re all in Norwegian, so it wouldn’t be applicable for most of you guys. Specifically Sesongarbeiderne (seasonal workers), we watch seasons (geddit?) of TV shows and talk about them one episode at the time. Started off with Firefly, and recently went through Legion.
What’s up everybody! I am a staff writer for the audiodrama ars PARADOXICA. We’re a Cold War-era time-travel show, starring a woman who zaps herself back to 1943 and promptly into the tail end of WWII on the homefront.
We currently have two full seasons available on iTunes, Stitcher, and multiple other platforms; we just released a mini-ep that I wrote that was previously only available to Patreon backers. We release monthly, and are currently on hiatus for the moment. If you want to start listening, this would be a wonderful time to do so! It’s a big, complicated show but stick with it!
I did a few test podcasts of a show called Daniel Wastes Your Time. The premise of the show was I would just blather about a pointless topic for an hour or so by myself. It was fun and I need to get back to it. Strange alchemy as to what stuff worked and what didn’t.
An hour spent going over every single item in a Denny’s menu, fun times. Trying to describe everything going on in an episode of NCIS, with the sound off, torture.
I would honestly love to make a podcast. I’ve put all the time into looking for the best hosting site ans trying to learn how to mix, a mic. I even recorded two episodes of a sports podcast with my friend but I then lost focus and held us up. My friend went on to do other things. I was also trying to create I podcast about comics, anime, movies, music, games but the friend I was trying to create it with was constantly flaking. Leaving me with nothing but concept art and an intro song I bought off someone on soundcloud
Recorded 2nd episode yesterday and I’ve just got to edit and upload it.
I was partly inspired by Patrick’s piece right here on Waypoint on how to start a podcast. That and listening to GB for all these years.
i’ve got a concept for an ttrpg podcast i think would be a lot of fun, sort of a hybrid between your standard actual play podcast and a review podcast, and i’ll probably be starting it this summer if things pan out.
i know some folks think the market for actual play podcasts is a little oversaturated at the moment, but that’s such a silly idea to me, being as the whole point of both APPs and podcasts in general is getting peoples’ unique takes on them. like, just bc there’s a lot of books already doesn’t mean its pointless to make new books, yknow? theres so many good books just waiting to happen! except the books are nerds making high fantasy dick jokes
I was on the Indie MEGACAST, the Indie MEGABOOTH’s podcast, which is unfortunately no more but is still worth listening to imo if you need a recommendation for a dope indie game to play (or very not dope game to play).
I’ve been putting out a podcast called Honourable Mentions,
The concept of the show is for me to chat with guests who have interesting ideas & thoughts about video games and speak to them about a game that would not necessarily make their greatest games of all time list but really does, in their eyes, deserve an Honourable Mention for whatever reason.
I’ve had some amazing guests join me for season 1 of the show including Justin McElroy (Polygon), Julian Murdoch (Gamers with Jobs) & Laura Dale (LetsPlayVideoGames).
Here’s The iTunes and RSS link if you’d like to listen to which games my guests chose as their hidden gem game:
I co-host a movie podcast called After The Hype, and we discuss movies after the hype cycle has died down and people have moved on to the next big thing. Last week we took a look back at Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion for its 20th Anniversary and this week we’re talking about Rogue One.
One thing that we do that I particularly enjoy is we have our guests do 30 second breakdowns of the films we’re talking about. Many of our guests succeed, but sometimes we get some really fun and unique failures. For Romy and Michele, we had our two guests breakdown the movie at the same time.
Me and my mate just left games retail and were kind of worried about how the lack of being able to chat all day about games will impact our enjoyment of them so decided to start up a podcast with some others. Got the first episode recorded, but any tips for the future would be sweet!
