Let Me Tell You About Podcasts

Hey so there are these things called Podcasts. People talk into a mic about some stuff, and then upload them to the internet. And, get this, then other people download and listen to them. Sounds crazy, I know, but it really works.

If you wanna give it a try yourself here are some suggestions from the four major types of podcast:

The Watching Stuff Category:
  • The Flophouse - Some friends watch bad movies, then talk about them**
  • We Hate Movies - Some different friends watch bad movies, then talk about them*
  • Til Death Do Us Blart - The most important rewatch podcast, it's an annual, eternal recap and review of seminal Thanksgiving classic Paul Blart Mall Cop 2. (Warning: also features the McElroy Brothers)**

The Video Game Stuff
  • The Giant Bombcast - The guys from video game website Giant Bomb talk about video games.*
  • The Giant Beastcast - Some other guys from video game website Giant Bomb talk about video games.*
  • Waypoint Radio - Some other guys and gals, some formerly from video game website Giant Bomb, talk about video games.*

The Tabletop-and/or-Improv Cast
  • Friends at the Table - A Dungeon World game run by Austin Walker*
  • Hello from the Magic Tavern - A guy from our world fell through a magic portal and chats with magical folks from other worlds*
  • Flip the Table - A different sort of tabletop thing, in which the hosts play board games, like a VCR game featuring Rich Little*
  • Comedy Bang Bang - Funny man and U2 Enthusiast Scott Aukerman and a merry band of guests perform improv sketch comedy for your amusement.*

The McElroy Family
  • My Brother My Brother and Me - An advice show for the modren era. Three brothers give advice to listeners.
  • Rose Buddies - A husband and wife recap and review episodes of The Bachelor series of reality television.
  • The Adventure Zone - Three brothers and their dad play D&D.
  • Sawb- okay you know what, just go to http://mcelroyshows.com/ for the full list. There's a lot.

Wanna talk about one of these podcasts? Wanna tell us about a podcast that's not on this list? New to podcasts and unsure where to start? Welcome home.

Edit: It has come to my attention that there are flaws in this post. For the sake of transparency I feel it is only fair to be up-front about the following changes:
1. Tabletop category modified to include improv, as there is significant cross-over between the two formats
2. McElroy presence in other categories properly labeled.
3. Implimented McElroy Alert system. * = No known McElroy Affiliation. ** = McElroys have appeared in this show before.

Thank you for patronizing my thread. Your understanding as we endeavor to serve your needs is appreciated.

    I go back and forth on CGI, it really varies for me

    I don't really enjoy the episodes where they are talking seriously about what they think would be a good game idea instead of doing goofs, largely because I don't think I like the same things they like

    That Lodge game sounded really bad and they were so excited about it

    I consider Deathblart to be a Worst Idea of All Time project that managed to rope in the McElroys, but it's not tied to their empire. One day the mantle will be passed from them to other poor souls.

    When CoolGames Inc isn't firing on all cylinders it can be kind of boring, but when it hits it hits pretty hard. They really need to start bringing in third parties to pitch their ideas to again, though.

    CGI burned REALLY bright at the beginning of its run, and was a must-listen for me

    it kinda tapered off somewhere around when they had infrequent releases, and despite believing in the comedic talents of both boys involved it runs really hot and cold for me now

    barely bringing on guests nowadays is a huuuge downgrade from the fun of hearing them excitedly explain their bad shit to rotating execs, and changing from twitter to reddit actually lowered the quality of their suggestions I feel? maybe it's just less novel, but the format doesn't feel as fresh. I don't know what in particular I can point to here other than it syncing up with my own lessened interest in the show.

    I actually really like when they hit upon a genuinely good game, but of course the best is when it's both a goof AND a good idea, like

    The McElroy flavor is unique enough that I won't dispute its validity as a "category" of sorts, but it's this proprietary flavor which should include Deathblart under its umbrella. It's not about who created the show, nor the subject matter, when it comes to the McElroys--I feel the McElroy presence is the only criterion which can substantiate the creation of an entire category devoted to them, as Rose Buddies is nominally a "Watching Things" podcast, and "The Adventure Zone" a tabletop podcast; I present no argument to reorganize these latter two, in accordance with my aforementioned view on that "je ne sais MQuoiCelroy" quality. Thank you for your time.

    Your obedient servant, T. Floosevelt.

    I haven't gotten very far into CGI yet, so I don't know how it'll end up. I can definitely see how it could have some problems later on, but hopefully I'll keep enjoying it.

    I think one of the things that hurts CGI a bit is that there are other outlets for that coveted Nick Robinson/Griffin McElroy pairing now so you can scratch that itch with Car Boys and Touch the Skyrim which have the added bonus of visuals. For me, at least, a little bit of that combo goes a long way.

    Too late I abandoned all hope as soon as you told me to. Well, time to continue my death march through this podcast.

    I think they gotta do shorter cycles of Touch the Skyrim anyway. As great as BONE DOGG was, they hit critical mass on funny confluence of mods well before the end of his part and while there were still funny moments in his final episode, it wasn't really worth going that long for.
