heh...I just decided to check out Broadcast Gamer.  On the January 10th 2006 show he recommends other podcasts, including Gaming Steve - which he describes as "too long...WAY too long!" but otherwise very good.

Funny...my first impressions of Broadcast Gamer is "too short...WAY too short!" but otherwise pretty decent  :D

Of course, I'm used to Epileptic Gaming's 3-hour live shows with call-ins.

Way too long eh? It's so strange, I listened to a week's worth of podcasts (other peoples) today and I was thinking to myself the whole time, "wow, these are good, but they are just so damn short!"

Someone tell me why a 30 minute good podcast is "better" than a 90 minute good podcast? All my favorite podcasts are at least 90 minutes or longer (in some cases, much much longer).

It might be because of the short attention spans of the digital age. If I were you, I would say something completely random every 5 minutes or so to keep us listening.

"You know what Microsoft's problem with the 360 overheating is? They aren't anointing enough goats. If they used Crisco to anoint more goats, all of this would be over and done with. Now on to Spore talk!"

Actually, the long podcasts are interesting. I enjoy when Steve goes into detail about things, he gives out alot of extra information about things that we may not of known about or how things work or why the don't work.  It's also not like the podcasts come out every day, its weekly or longer so by the time they come out again, your ready for more. A two hour podcast every two weeks is not bad at all.  Don't change a thing Steve.

I'd like to recommend This Week in Tech, Chatterbox Video Game Radio, Diggnation, and, while not gaming or tech related, The Ricky Gervais Show

Also, all of these are available via iTunes.

I agree. I'm really liking the alternating long show/interview thing youve got going. The insider interviews are very cool.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Wow no one metioned Dreamstation.cc

I listen to

-Gaming Steve
-Video Game News Radio- They don't have much "exclusive sneek peeks" but it is funny
-Dream Station.cc- It is nice because sometimes they have multiple people reviewing the same game


Plus I do my own podcast. The hosts are teenagers and I sound like a 3 year old. If you still want to listen after that go to www.gamingbuzz.blogspot.com

These are not directly podcasts....they are live shows with downloadable archives.

Epileptic Gaming at www.radioitg.com (Friday evenings....but very irregular lately.  Due back around end of January...probably...with video!)

.pxl at www.radioitg.com - one of the original Epileptic Gaming hosts split and did his own thing. Usually Thursdays.

The Bridger & Harlock Show at www.tsncentral.com - TSN is the original home of Epileptic Gaming.  Comes on Saturday evenings.  I haven't seen archives for this show in a long time, unfortunately.

Both Radio iTG and The Team Sportscast Network (TSN) do game commentary for clan matchups, pro gaming, and sometimes just for fun.  The Epileptic Gaming forum is where I found out about Gaming Steve :)

Couldn't agree more with T-Bird on Epileptic Gaming and pxl.  I also found my way here thanks to iTG.

Other podcasts/iPTV shows i listen/watch:

This Week in Tech (TWiT)

Security Now

Inside The Net

1up's Vidcast

All the Revision 3 stuff:

DiggNation

Systm

InDigital

Infected

I defiantly enjoy the longer podcasts.  I would have to say mostly I listen to your podcast for your thoughts on the news, not really the news it's self.  Basically the industry insider take on things us gamers read everyday.  This is what I think the longer format allows for.

I seriously hate it when a podcaster says something about running out of time.  Time?  Why?  My job requires I drive quite a bit and up until recently I listened to a lot of talk radio.  The worst parts of talk radio are the constant cutting to commercials and the shows running out when there are still things to be discussed.  Some days are big news days (Katrina, elections, E3, GDC); other days are not.  This has to be one of the best things about podcasting.  It's scalable. 

If you have more to say, say it.  When you're out of things to say, publish.

Also make sure to check out this review of gaming podcasts, it's really good:

http://virginworlds.com/index.php?/archives/71-Pod-is-the-new-Blog-A-complete-review-of-MMO-Gaming-Podcasts.html

They also have my podcast in there as well, here is the review:

Quote
Commentary: Gaming Steve is billed as "a vortex of gaming knowledge." Is he ever. This man knows more about games, gaming, gamers, game companies, and game systems than anyone I've ever heard. Only the Will Wrights of the world could listen to Steve's podcasts and (perhaps) not gain enormous amounts of information and insight into the gaming universe. Gaming Steve's listeners have the opportunity to gain the perspective of a prolific, intelligent, and studied gamer. Gaming Steve covers EVERY kind of game on EVERY gaming system known to man. Everything from World of Warcraft to Need to Speed to Legend of Zelda is reviewed and discussed in depth. While details regarding Steve's background are scarce, he is an industry insider who has owned and operated his own gaming company and has served as a consultant in the game industry. He has many friends and contacts within the industry and seems to be very well respected. He schedules interviews with key personnel at major game studios on a regular basis and executes those interviews with grace. Steve's production skills are second to none. His professionalism is second to none. His knowledge is second to none. His podcast is second to none.
(5 / 5)

Do you think he likes it? ;)

Not sure if you read it or not, but they also mention Steve in the commentary for World of Warcast, which I also listen too:

Quote
Commentary: World of Warcast stands out as the most complete podcast amidst its peers. Producer and host, Starman, takes his podcast rather seriously while still managing to enjoy the process. The sound and editing quality is superb and the show format is casual, yet precise and organized. In fact, precise and organized sums up Starman to a T. For anyone who listens to both Starman and Gaming Steve ... what would you give to hear them do a podcast together? If I discovered that these two guys were twin brothers, I wouldn't be surprised for a moment. Anyway, this is one of the few, if not the only, podcast on this list that utilizes the AAC format, which allows us to skip from section to section of the podcast as one would with a CD. MP3 podcasts do not have this capability. This sounds trivial, but you'll realize how great it is when you accidentally bump the iPod buttons when half-way through a three hour podcast that isn't in the AAC format. Fast forwarding through a couple hours to get back to your spot on the iPod isn't much fun. If you listen to podcasts on your PC, this is a non-issue. (Again, I would pay money to hear Gaming Steve and Starman debate this topic.) Starman's new co-host, Renata, is an absolute pleasure to listen to and she wields an impressive amount of knowledge about the classes as well as the instanced content. She is a tremendous addition to Starman's show. All in all, this is a first class podcast.


And I think it would be a great idea if Steve and Starman did a podcast together!
