So I’ve gotten bored and ended up looking into subscribing to some of these podcast things. It’s been fairly good so far, I’ve subscribed to two. The first is Downloadable Content: The Penny Arcade Podcast. This is done by Gabe and Tycho who are as hilarious in the podcast as they are in the talks that they’ve given or interviews that they’ve done or the news posts. Very quality conversations as they hammer out comics. Sadly, it’s released fairly irregularly.
The other podcast I’ve subscribed to is The Rissington Podcast, done by Jon Hicks of hicksdesign and John Oxton. The two are fairly recognized (on the Internet at least) British web designers who work at a former air base RAF Rissington. The page has a snazzy design and they are also quite entertaining. They also have some spots that they do like a typeface of the week.
And with that, I’ve run out of things to listen to. While I’m on the subject, I may as well ask for more sites to track on my RSS reader. I’m a fairly picky reader; I don’t read a lot of the large blogs like Kotaku or Joystiq. I prefer small blogs, like 4 color rebellion or The Escapist, since they have this charm to them or reputable sites, like Ars Technica, since they’re usually not full of exaggerated opinion as bloggers are want to do. Also, I’m looking for gaming, technology, or design types of sites.
