I do not know about you, but I love to listen to podcasts while I am exercising or driving long distances. One of my favorite weekly podcast is Idle Thumbs.
In 2008, a group of friends who worked in the game industry decided to record their regular conversations and release them into the internet. Maybe it is because I lack real life friends to talk about video games or maybe it is just because these guys are entertaining. I'm not entirely sure. Irregardless, I enjoy listening to these friends sit around and talk about all things games. If I had a bucket list, it would be to be able to sit in the same room with these guys and discuss video games.
I highly recommend that you give them a try.
