Podcast addiction

For the past few years I have been what I would have to describe as a Podcast addict. A quick glance at iTunes tells me that I currently subscribing to over 50 podcast feeds. A few of those are no longer updated but nevertheless it's quite a large number. The majority of them are video game related podcast. It never ceases to amaze me that such a niche topic such as video games has spurred such a large quantity of Podcasts.

They are of course of varying quality, many offer what you would expect when you put a microphone in from of a bunch of radio amateurs. But others are extremely entertaining, not necessarily because they very professionally produced but because they have real personality. If radio icons such as Howard Stern have shown us anything it's that radio is best when it's personal. When you start thinking of the broadcasters as something approximating friends, even if you have never met them or even talked to them.

For the longest time RetroforceGO was my favorite Podcast, the way they communicated on the Radio made me think of them as old friends. Which probably is the highest praise you can have for a Radio show or a Podcast. Their topic of discussion; old video games was very much secondary to the personalities on the show. Sadly RetroforceGO is no longer updated, even if I will always keep all of their episodes on my iPod.

I have not too long ago stumbled upon a new favorite podcast; the Snatchcast, the official podcast of Pixel Snatch, provocatively named after Japan's censorship of genitalia. The show is really just two friends hanging out talking about video games while making borderline racist and homophobic jokes under various stages of intoxication. It's the close friendship between the two guys and the way they talk with each other as if the microphone wasn't on which makes the show interesting. The video game discussion is really secondary, which is if anything proven by their non-video game spin off show being just as amazing.

I was very pleased when they mentioned me and this blog a while ago on URA Snatchcast episode 20, I took the liberty of making a little sound clip of the mention to share with you guys.
