These are the podcasts I listen to in order to get through my generally grindy, shitty workdays.  I'm not getting paid to endorse them, humbly and obviously admit that they are produced by individuals with leagues more talent than myself, and just want to spread the good word. 



Xone Bros.


Despite the name, it's not all about Xbox One.  Mostly, but they're not fanboys or anything like that.  "Positive gaming", aka the complete opposite of Grunt Free Press.  The three hosts are funny and knowledgeable about sports games, anime, MMOs... again, this is pretty much the anithesis of Grunt Free Press.


Video Game Outsiders


Unfiltered and conversational banter about random games and news, this is always entertaining.  A nice mix of honest talk about the industry and off the wall ribbing and comedy.  It can venture into morning zoo territory, but the hosts seem self aware enough that it never crosses the line into overly obnoxious.  Great personalities to keep you company.


Free Domain Radio


A hardcore philosophy show usually dealing with current issues.  There's a good variety in both topics and the length of the shows: could be a ten minute rant or a four hour marathon that begins with a history lesson then weaves into self help/dating advice.  Stefan Molyneux is harsh, intelligent, and can be brutally honest and humorous.  If you're looking for some truth to cut through the sugar coated bullshit, here you go.  Just be warned that the truth can hurt.


Game Blitz


Current game news with some random retro shit thrown in there, Game Blitz covers the topics I usually don't touch (JRPGs, Metal Gear, etc.) in an entertaining way that makes it interesting and tolerable.  Good banter with the hosts, usually making fun of each other.



The Ben Shapiro Show


The "Number One Conservative Podcast on the Web" sounds pretty dull, right?  At this point in time it's acually one of the funniest, most controversial podcasts I've heard.  For the most part it's just presenting facts to dispute the mainstream narrative of victimhood and race baiting, which is unfortunately shocking and brave these days.  There's also running jokes like taking pop culture songs and deconstructing them to point out how objectively awful they are.  It's sad that a political conservative show is now one of my main sources of comedy, but when the rest of the entertainment industry is so focused on political correctness and is culturally dead... there you go.




A short but informative show about dark folklore tales from around the globe and throughout history.  Well produced and not afraid of the grizzly details, topics range from torture devices to fairies and witchcraft.  I really enjoy the format: half legend, half historical fact. 


The Retro League


Weekly roundup of re-releases of older games, spotlights on random games from the past, and a generally informative and entertaining show about all things retro.  The two hosts know their shit.


Bizarre States


It's sometimes about the paranormal, sometimes about dick and shit jokes.  Hosted by Jessica Chobot and Andrew Bowser.  The talk is loose and ranges from the hosts directly reading stories off the internet, to guests giving first hand accounts of their "spoooky" experiences, to long and questionable listener stories, to movie pitches about dismembered sentient serial killer dicks.


Podcast Evolved


This is pure (well, kind of...) talk about the Halo series.  I've tried getting into a few podcasts about Halo, and this is the best one I've found.  There's a nice mix of lore, current events, and off topic discussions.  Hosts are very likeable.


Retro Obscura


As the title implies, this is a show about more obscure retro games.  It's nice to hear the knowlegable and entertaining hosts have long form but random discussions about the games they've dug up.  Good music, great listen.



2 Dudes and a NES


I'm a sucker for the NES, so a game-by-game podcast about the system is required listening.  It's published rather infrequently and unfortunately goes out of it's way to be "family friendly", but I still look forward to each and every episode. 


Horror News Radio


Weekly news and reviews from the world of horror films.  The dispositions of the hosts are refreshingly varied so they play off each other extremely well.  I've tried multiple sources for discussion of horror related entertainment, and this seems to be the best, most consistent choice.
