i mostly listen to gaming stuff, i haven't found anything else worth of interest. I mostly listen to Gameinformer, a norwegian podcast Level Upcast, Podcast Beyond, Podcast Unlocked and MONG Podcast.

There are a lot of interesting podcasts out there, don't think i have heard gameinformers yet tho, giant bombs is pretty good but you can hear that its more a young crowd now then when Ryan Davis was there.

But if its gaming, eurogamers, ign UK, and if you understand danish, look for Harddisken, thats a great one, Also if Gamespot begins again they had a great one with Danny and the uk crew

Must listen to for non-Games podcasts-

Joe Rogan Experience (UFC, Psych yourself + science)

Hardcore History with Dan Carlin (History made amazing)

Tested (Tech)

Men in Blazers (Soccer)

Davey Mac Sports Program (Davey Mac from Ron & Fez on Sirius/XM)

The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe (Fav. Skeptic Podcast)

Weird Medicine with Dr. Steve (From Sirus XM O&A channel)

Startalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson (Amazing scientist of our time)

Only the Giant Bombcast, which is nice. I used to listen to the hotspot back in the day and it was fairly enjoyable. Also used to listen to Major Nelson's podcast.

Don't know any others so I'll b checking back here to see other suggestions.

Also: Anyone know of a good Android podcast app (with rss feed + download and streaming options).

Just the Giant Bombcast right now. Used to listen to more (This is Only a Test, GameSpot GamePlay, etc.), but it started becoming really difficult to keep up due to having too little free time to listen to them all.

The two I listen to regularly are:

No Agenda (Deconstruction of mainstream media/politics/tech) - Best Podcast In The Universe

Weekend Confirmed (Garnett Lee, old 1UP guy)

I've tried to listen to Giant Bombcast, but in general, although I like the guys, I find it to be too long, wander too far off-topic, and most importantly they seem to not give a shit about audio quality. Patrick Klepek's Bombin' the AM is usually pretty good.

GI podcast was the first one i started listening to

Hmm gaming podcasts.

Giantbomb might be good )the quality of topics and discussions swings alot sadly).

The Axe factor + epic battlecry are decent, the intros are a tad annoying, but they cover way more venues of gaming then I feal Giant bomb does, but they can end up as comming across as bickering constantly.

There were the GS podcasts, I liked pretty much all of them.

I only have time for one podcast in my life; Giant Bomb's Giant Bombcast. Still your number one source for all the hot topics from the world of video games.
