Sometimes, when you’re not reading Lightning Octopus, you’re in the mood to listen to a geek podcast.
If your pod has an itch that only a ‘cast can scratch, I’ve recently been introduced to a few Arizona based podcasts that cover certain fields of geekery.
And since I recently learned how Google Listen works on my cheap Android phone, I’ve been living it up podcast style the last weeks or so – giving my Deerhunter station on Pandora a well deserved rest.
Mayhaps these local podcasts may interest you as well:
Beer & Battle!
- Behold… adventure!
- Follow a handful of Arizona adventurers as they commence on a few campaigns.
- As a D&D and Pathfinder podcast, Beer & Battle! lets you listen in on their games (and their intoxication).
- Likable characters, easy to listen to, and the DMs do a great job bringing you in.
- So get some Mountain Dew out of the machine, load the latest episode, and pretend you’re gaming during your day job!
- Subscribe to Beer & Battle! here.
Inglorious Geeky Bastards
- Covering the full spectrum of geek culture, episodes tend to start with video games and end wherever the conversation takes them.
- These IGB’s have been cool enough to mention LO a couple of times on their cast. Thanks, fellas!
- And I got to meet Hong at Lightning Octocon!
- The guys sometimes bring on guests, have great chemistry with each other, and aren’t afraid to share their opinions.
- They’re fun to listen to, but fair warning, they are a bit NSFW. (Naughty swears!)
- Subscribe to Inglorious Geeky Bastards here.
- I only just learned about DAPs Magic over the weekend and haven’t had a chance to listen yet.
- Seems to be a heavy Disney influence, but with themes such as “Muppet Mondays” and “Trkkie Thursdays” the geek can’t be far behind.
- I’ll be checking it out this morning.
- Subscribe to DAPs here.
Fistful of Geek
- This is one of those newfangled video type podcasts from the future.
- Hosted by Thomas from Atomic Comics and famous Arizona cosplayer Jessica Nigri.
- Tons of guests, usually with big names, and a big focus on comics.
- Check out Fistful of Geek here.
Man, I need to get my own podcast going soon…
