Re: What podcasts do you like to listen to?

IGN Movies' Keepin' It Reel - Geek-centric movie news discussion, some reviews of new movies.

F This Movie! - A podcast about movies, generally one in-depth discussion per episode.

Slate Political Gabfest - informed and lively discussion of national and notable politics.

Slate Culture Gabfest - the hosts (especially the main one) are at times gratingly drippy towards each other, but their discussions are interesting and intelligent.

Slate Spoiler Specials - in-depth discussions of new movies with film critic Dana Stevens.

The Dissolve podcast - film discussion from the site's writers, almost all of whom were top AV Club writers until last summer.


... And I've been listening to parts of the Screen Rant movie podcast lately also.

Last night I discovered Nerd Poker, a Dungeons & Dragons campaign starring comedian Brian Posehn and his friends. It's awesome.

I listen to a bunch. WTF is great. But, one I'm surprised hasn't been listed: The Thrilling Adventure Hour. It's great fun.

Re: What podcasts do you like to listen to?

When people say lots, how much is lots? I always wonder if I'm a podcast addict and listen to too many and I have 14 subscriptions. Does anyone have more than that or even more than 20?

I have it down to about 8 active ones just now, maybe 10 episodes a week? Most podcasts are 30 minutes to 3 hours though, so there's a limit on what's possible.

I have 20 subscriptions. But, I'm behind on some. I have a son that I take for a walk in a stroller... prime podcast listening time.

That's true. There's just so much out there it's hard to limit yourself. Sometimes I want to cut back and sometimes I just want to listen to more. I think I just decided that anywhere between 10 and 15 is just enough. Also, a lot of the shows I listen to are once a week shows, or in the case of Filmspotting SVU, every other week.

Three of the podcasts I listen to are on the Trek.fm network: Earl Grey (TNG), The Orb (DS9), and To the Journey (VOY). That network does have great hosts.
