Anybody have any suggestions for some good seasons that they are currently listening to?

I listen to a bunch of film podcasts but have never really found any gaming ones that I have stuck with.

I love these guys. Two series running at once, epic battle axe and epic battle cry.

Any gaming podcast I listen to is simply terrible. The last 2 I listened to was one from Joystiq which is supposed to be excellent according to a few online sites, but it just had annoying Americans saying "oh that is super cute" and" this is pretty" and were not very critical of anything.

And I listened to the The Mature Gamer Podcast and it was terrible, 4 people trying to be funny and they simply were not, the audio levels were up and down. They had no notes on most of the questions the annoying host asked so it was dead air after a lot of his questions, and the gaming knowledge in general was poor. One of them started talking about "the *super* Gianna sisters which was on the spectrum" and somebody else started to question what it was. I mean your on a Gaming podcast surely basic gaming history would be a necessity, especially The Great Giana Sisters. For those who dont know The Great Giana Sisters was a direct rip off of Mario, the first level of GGS is a carbon copy from Marios, it was released on Amiga, Amstrad, Commodore 64 and a few other computers (never on spectrum). The game was pulled off the shelves due the legal issues with Nintendo creating a collectors item and a place in gaming notoriety.

So I have yet to hear a decent gaming podcast.

I'm yet to hear a good one, most of the ones I stumble on are annoying hipster fanbois who are so far up people's backside they actually come out of their mouths.

I used to listen to quite a few gaming podcast but I don't bother anymore. They spend 90% of the show talking about games that aren't out yet or games that hardly anyone will play. I prefer amateur podcast because they don't get sent early releases and they buy games with there own money and because they are not in bed with the publishers they can speculate more about future games and give honest opinions about current games.

abandofgamers.com do a great multiformat podcast every fortnight. Hosted by Joel and Bill, they discuss new releases and gaming related news in a very relaxed manner.

Joel is a former host on the psnation.com podcast, which is also very good.

Likewise -- I don't generally watch/listen to the whole thing, unless the guest is particularly entertaining, but I never miss the first hour of random banter and discussion about what they've been playing that week. All three regulars are great -- TB's daily(ish) "Content Patch" is pretty good for news, too (as is Dodger's show).

My two regulars are PS Nation (long, playstation only) and Big Red Barrel: Boom (formerly Sarcastic Gamer Brown, which hardly ever talks about games but is funny and does good parody songs when they can be bothered.)

I don't go for the mainstream ones like IGN, when I have I've found them pretty unlikable.

Joel was a good co-host of PS Nation until he got a bit ill, so I'll have to give abandofgamers a listen.
