Two Highly Recommended Podcasts

Attention Gamers . . . The Black Panel’s podcast can now be subscribed to on iTunes.  Click Here.

If you love games and great conversation with people who know what they’re talking about then this is definitely for you.  I’m not a gamer so listen to Miztres who is:

The Podcast was pretty techie as you know, really above my level, but they kept the conversation to my level so I could follow along well enough.  For example the talk about a rumoured massively big Xbox360.  As soon as I heard that I went “Why?  What for?”  Well they told me what for….not that it’s really useful for most of us and certainly not useful for me. I can now speak confidently that I do not need to upgrade to the new Xbox if it ever turns up.

I liked the conversational style, I felt I was also in the room with them…just not contributing to the conversation.

The segments are cute.  Did you hear the one about screen names:  Metal Finger!  Tumourous Pizza?  I was laughing as I listened to the podcast and then had to explain myself to Catherine who couldn’t hear it.

I love Good Game on ABC and don’t miss an episode.  When the podcast reviewed games I’d seen on Good Game I could follow their review.  Their review brought out different aspects of the game that the Good Game guys hadn’t mentioned for whatever reason.  Pretty cool.

I will be listening in the future.

Now, if you love Star Trek, you love humour and you are a bit of a geek (hey dude, you just admitted to being a Star Trek fan), then you should listen to Wil Wheaton’s Memories of the Future Podcast.

I first started reading Wil’s blog after I thought I caught a glimpse of him in Nemesis (Don’t get me started on that film).  Wondering what Wesley Crusher was doing at the wedding party and in Starfleet uniform, I immediately hit the net.  I found that Wil Wheaton had his own blog.  I figured it sure to have something about the film in it.  I thought it would be just another celebrity blog that the actual celebrity has nothing to do with, but it was worth a shot.  It turns out that he writes it himself.  He turns out to be a really cool guy (for a geek).  I had no illusions he’d be like Wesley Crusher (in fact I never really gave Wesley much thought, not even enough to hate or like the character), but I didn’t expect him to sound just like any one of my friends.

Memories of the future is a book he is about to put out about The Next Generation.  He says it’s not a tell all book.  It’s more like going through a high school year book.  But if you listen to the first episode, he’ll describe it much better than I can.  Go on, go listen. Go!  Trust me, I’m a geek.

Here’s a link to the first three episodes (because that’s all there is at the time of writing) after that you’re on your own.

Episode 1

Episode 2

Episode 3

Oh, and just by the way.  I was walking through the park on my way to work (by myself) listening to episode 3.  He made me laugh out loud!  So not only was I the crazy laughing lady in the park, but snot came out of my nose!
