There are other [podcasts] than Giant Bomb

Hey, did you know there are podcasts that aren't about video games that feature hosts that aren't inexplicably awful to hear people argue about? Why don't we talk about those?

Punch Up the Jam just had their final Miel / Demi episode with Neil Cicierega and Open Mike Eagle. It is a blast, and answers the question "What does make Ray Parker feel good?"

My Dad Wrote a Porno is back with Season 5. The identity of the special one has been revealed and there has been mention of a rusty prick. Win some / lose some.

Athletico Mince continues to probably be inscrutable to anyone that isn't British. The adverts for Stan Watson's Oily Wipes and the Kitty Batter this week were particularly good

Threedom just released an episode recorded in a hotel room on the CBB tour

Hello From the Magic Tavern is up to two spin-offs now, with EARTH GAMES! This week they played an improv game with Squibert the sort of evil frog. The season opener "Clue" was amazing

PFT has a new podcast "The Neighbourhood Listen" with Nicole Parker on Stitcher Premium. It starts soon and I'm excited!

Or just talk about the Giant Bombcast like usual, I guess. I'm not your supervisor

The one about the fucking space hairdresser and the cowboy. He's got a tinfoil pal and a pedal bin

    I've been super behind on podcasts actually, since the state fair happens in my town so I've been having to get rides to/from the train station, and a lot of my podcast time is from driving to/from there.

    Also I've been listening to the River City Girls soundtrack a whole lot.

    Metal Gear thread, I'm playing Phantom Pain again and it's a real shame about Quiet's whole thing, because her power set is very cool, with awesome visual effects, and I think her personal story, up to certain points, could be really compelling, and last night I got the scene where she shoots down the fighter jet at sea and it turns out that still fucking rules

    What a dang ol' shame about every single bit of sexualization of the character

    I just finished up the last episode of Spring in Hieron

    @Indie Winter , if you want those spoilers, click here
    So, early on they start a project to attempt to form a coalition with the Gray Duke in order to combat Galenika if it comes to it

    Then, someone draws a card, and according to the card "A project finishes early because someone has a brilliant idea" or whatever

    The "brilliant idea" they decide on is using Affective Magic, or Augury, to pretend that Galenika has already started reconfiguration, in an attempt to scare the Gray Duke into compliance. Those responsible (Hella, Adaire, Epharim, Sunder, Victoria Lake, and Corsica) do this without Benjamin's knowledge, and as soon as he realizes what's happened he feels betrayed, and vows to figure out who's responsible. Art starts a project, which is Benjamin's investigation.

    Benjamin's investigation finishes early (?), and he brings together basically anyone who wasn't at the meeting and lays out for them that he wants to potentially leave the University, as well as bring to justice those who used the magic he discovered in such a shitty way

    And literally after that discussion happens and things are at their most tense,


    The King of Winter is drawn. The Frost Shepard comes.

    The tonal whiplash I had from one of the really great cutscenes about her past, to then taking her on a mission in the chopper while she stretched and posed was just the worst.

    Serial the podcast. Or really just any fictionalization of a radio show

    The second season of the Wolverine podcast wrapped up recently and man it was so good

    I generally liked that first season as an opening move into this genre but season 2 improves on it in basically every way and leans into the fact that a radio play based on a comic is going to be inherently pretty cheesy

    Mild spoilers for the end of season 2
    hearing Richard Armitage and the guys who play Gambit and Wyngarde acting out very comic-y fight dialogue or scene descriptions and yelling things like YOU BROKE MY BO STAFF, DAMN YOU and AH YES LOGAN THERE YOU ARE, FROZEN IN MID STRIDE, LEANING FORWARD AT EXACTLY 15 DEGREES just really tickled me

    It also doesn't suffer from any plots that go nowhere - looking at you, cult from season 1

    Everyone should listen if they haven't! It's all out and free on the regular podcast feeds

    I sort of miss the "Logan is barely in it" angle from season one, but this is definitely plotted much better

    Aside from the pig episode I didn’t like Limetown very much. Felt like a podcast version of breaking the documentary format like in a found footage film

    they haven't talked about it since finishing DBZ, it sounded like they weren't sure if they were gonna go for DB, GT, or Super next

    Db is simultaneously so good and so problematic though. Gt is just....not great.
