    I've got a new gig at my employer, nice quiet analysis work, and I've got time to listen to more podcasts. What's out there? I like the WTF@TFW vibe, and don't need another Transformers related one. I heard Harry Shearer's Le Show was good, so I'm checking that out now. Streaming audio is also good, it doesn't need to be downloadable.

    Just looking for general topics, current events, music, finance, science. Whatcha got?

    I can't recommend "You Look Nice Today" enough. Just start at the beginning and enjoy. I have a feeling you would appreciate the humor. :)

    I recommend the Giant Bombcast, its about games but they handle the subject in a quite light-hearted and funny manner.

    Drunk Tank is my favourite. Its done by those who make Red vs Blue & Achievement Hunter. I really like the humour and random topics they end up on.

    I second the Drunk Tank. The humor is great and they cover everything. Gaming, movies, current events and just stuff in everyday life.

    Great stuff. In fact, they're close to their One Year Anniversary.

    I catch Wait Wait most weekends, it would be great to dig into the archives. Sometimes it's really gutbusting, to the point I almost pull a Tiger if I'm driving.

    Ok, what video game podcasts are considered to be worth ones time? Generally podcasts that are upto date on modern stuff, not ignorant/hardcore fanboys of just one company and are entertaining?

    I have on my subscribe list:
    Giant Bombcast
    Player One Podcast
    Rooster Teeth Podcast (formerly known as Drunk Tank)

    What else am I missing? Thanks.

    If you grew up in the 80's then try the UnderScoopFire.com Podcast.
    I just found it the other day. It's pretty funny.

    I like "Stuff you should know" a lot.

    So much great stuff you might not normally think about or take the time to research on your own. There is a broad range of topics every week, from climbing Everest, going over Niagara falls in a barrel, LSD experiments, lobotomies, rubber, and even Cthulhu.
