What Are You Listening To? – The Married Gamers’ Chris Brown

I already know what podcasts Dorktown listens to. That’s boring. I’d rather hear what other podcasters are listening to. This time we asked, Chris Brown of The Married Gamers podcast, what he listens to. Take itthemarriesgamers away, Chris!:

Podcasts are cool! Whether you have hundreds of thousands of listeners or thirty, podcasts are an audio version of cave paintings. It is a DIY (Do It Yourself) way of sharing
things you hate or love and hopefully informing or entertaining you and a collection of others. No hyberbole, if it wasn’t for podcasts, my wife and I might have gotten a divorce. For my wife and I, podcasts were better than freakin’ couples therapy!

I have a long list of shows I listen to, but I’m going to highlight four that I am always eager to tune in for each new release.

* DGRadio ~This was my first podcast I started listening to. John, Moe and Hilden have been through names changes, shifted their focus from video games to entertainment of all types, and have created music and soon their first movie. Sadly, the heart of the podcast, Hilden passed away suddenly just a few weeks ago. The just released their last podcast honoring their late friend and they have their entire history of shows archived to be enjoyed for the ages. Episode 391: For Hilden

* Some Other Castle ~Elaine and Leah do a side-splittingly funny video game podcast that is easily one of the best podcasts out there. There’s a lot of boob and penis jokes, and they may have talked about John Madden in ways that would make even the closet-fetishist blush. That said, these two ladies are informative and passionate about games so much it has me trying Person 4 on my PS Vita, and I despise JRPGs (Japanese Role Playing Games). Episode 78: Vodkacast

* The 40cast ~Hosted by four guys from different parts of the country, the 40cast covers a wide-swath of topics from video games to politics to race relations. I don’t always agree with them but on several occasions they make me question my likes and beliefs. Their shows are lengthy and because of their mature content I only listen to them in my car so I often will keep to surface streets to make my “drive-time” longer. Episode 172: Vaginal Knitting, Really?! gamongirl

* Game on Girl ~I often refer to this podcast, hosted by Regina McMenomy (Ph.D.) and Rhonda Oglesby, as the NPR of video game podcasting. This is a show that will make you think about gaming in a larger sense. They have frequent guests on each episode that speak to the show’s topic. Intelligent discussion, passionate about gaming, and inviting personalities make this one of my favorite podcasts. Episode 91: 2014 Films and Wonder Woman on the Big Screen
