I follow two: RoosterTeeth's video podcast that gets put out every Tuesday and my friends' gaming podcast- Eight Bit- that goes out every... Sunday night? Monday morning? idk somewhere in there. I like both of them because I like the people involved and the stories they tell more than anything. I totally wouldn't listen to my friends' if it wasn't theirs because I have very little interest in gaming/technology news. But I do listen because I like to hear them banter because I can't much since they're at college. And they mention me sometimes. <3 They've tried to get me on but I'm scared so yeah no.
Naw. I'd rather watch a whole series all at once (relatively-speaking) than regularly come back to the same thing 'for the latest events to unfold' or whatever. I just don't understand the excitement for that sort of thing, and since the episodes tend to be long (from what I've seen), it's not something I can watch like I would a television series.
I only listen to two different podcasts- one done by a couple of sportscasters here called the Jay and Dan podcast, and one that's done by a few of the guys I'm in a fantasy hockey pool with. The latter only averages 50-100 listeners each time, but I have been asked to go on it in the future, which I though was kind of neat (even if I don't think I'd be much of a guest).
