One Up Show.

I don’t reguarly frequent audio podcasts so I’ll get back to you with one of those.
One video podcasts that I do watch frequently is the 1UP Show, which is basically gaming reviews/previews/news from various gaming magazine editors/writers.

I think it is produced very well and a lot of the people in it are pretty intelligeble gamers. Episode 41 covered Quakecon which was an event that happened in Dallas that I attended and they also interviewed the designer for the upcoming game Okami. Episode 42 covered a really cool ryhthm game I want to get my hands on. And the most recent episode was more a filler since the staff was out covering an event. It was a taped podcast session with different people from the 1up community showcasing old games and discussing.

Out of curiosity, why do you choose videocasts over podcasts?

    I choose videocasts over podcasts mainly for the obvious reasons. The media is a lot richer (not necessarily the content). And I find that with videocasts it seems a lot more entertaining, especially when the production is above average or excellent just like the 1up show, in my opinion.

    Another reason (for me at least) is that with a lot of podcasts its more like NPR or talk radio and I am not a fan of either. Radio DJ host voices makes my head want to explode.
