Podcasts I Like – Updated

I’ve been listening to a lot more podcasts recently, filling my car journey to and from work with interesting & amusing discussions on MMOs and I thought it was about time I shared these with you. Will I ever stop giving?

Massively Speaking: I started listening to this one just as the long running host was leaving and although I’d never heard of Massively before I was an instant convert to both the blog and the podcast which covers all the developments and news in the world of MMOs. The hosts, Justin & Bree, are great – funny, knowledgeable and always entertaining so grab their RSS here: http://massively.joystiq.com/category/massively-speaking/rss.xml

MMO Reporter Network: A great series of podcasts covering general MMO news as well as specific games such as LOTRO, Rift, SWTOR & Guild Wars. Chris and Bill are the main hosts and have a great relationship together, but their other guest hosts are just as good too and all of them bring a lot of enthusiasm for, and love of, MMOs to their podcasts. All in all, you should be listening to these guys here: http://feeds.feedburner.com/mmo_reporter

Casual Stroll to Mordor: Probably the best LOTRO podcast out there, Merric & Goldenstar cover every aspect of LOTRO from game play through festival guides and all the way to developer diaries and class discussions, all whilst looking after a baby hobbit, beating off bats and reminding us married listeners just how much fun being married can be 😉 Their feed is: http://casualstrolltomordor.com/category/episodes/feed/

Sally Forth in Middle Earth: Although Doc hasn’t released one for a while, when he does they are a great source of information from a very experienced gamer who really knows how to put a podcast together: http://docholidaymmo.com/category/podcast/feed/

LOTRO Beneath Your Feet: Quite simply the best podcast about LOTRO that *isn’t* about gaming. Shipwreck puts together a very professional product that expands your knowledge of not only the game but Tolkien’s lore that underpins it. You *must* listen to all of these now! http://www.cyberears.com/podcasts/podcast_5931.xml

LOTRO Cast: A great podcast that stands out for the series of lore driven episodes that explain the background to the Middle Earth setting of the game. This is another that all LOTRO players should listen to: http://www.cyberears.com/index.php/Show/audio/5890

LOTRO Academy: A great podcast from newbies rather than seasoned end-gamers: http://lotroacademy.com/?cat=3/

Through the Palantir: A very interesting series of podcasts centred on the Player vs Player aspect of LOTRO: http://feeds.feedburner.com/ThroughThePalantr

Secrets of Middle Earth: A charming series of podcasts from a priest (really!) who plays and discussed his journeys with friends. There’s no other podcast quite like this one: http://middleearth.sqpn.com/feed/

GuildCast on Gamebreaker TV: Although the original GuildCast (covering Guild Wars 1 & latterly 2) was audio only it is now a videoblog over on the really spiffy Gamebreaker TVhttp://www.gamebreaker.tv/mmorpg/guild-wars-2-mmorpg/

Too Long Didn’t Listen:  Merric & Justin bilther on for 30 or more minutes about two topics in the MMO world. Always funny, always informed, always free next time – listen to them all now! http://mmoreporter.com/category/podcast/too-long-didnt-listen-podcast/

Relics of Orr: A great podcast that focuses on Guild Wars 1 & 2 and I’m addicted! The hosts are funny and the show makes me laugh every time. The show RSS feed is: http://www.cyan-studios.net/relics/?feed=podcast

Contains Moderate Peril: Last but certainly not least is probably my favourite of all. CMP is presented by Roger & Brian (with occasional co-hosts) who are two very funny, sceptical old buggers who know a lot about MMOs, films and stuff in general – most entertaining. I’m in slight mourning as Brian is taking a break but I hope he’ll be back soon. In the meantime do what I’m doing and devour their entire back catalogue now! http://www.containsmoderateperil.com/category/podcast/
