  1. Have you tried listening to Cadmium2 and ScutterCast?

    C2 is a podcast about British cult TV with every other episode being a review of a Dr Who storyline. They started the Dr Who at season 1, Episode 1 and are going through in order of airing…if no video is available, they are listening to the available audio….really good

    ScutterCast is a Red Dwarf podcast that is doing indepth episode analysis, also starting with episode 1 and working through. At the end of the episode review, they do a Red Dwarf latest news segment and then a general chat bit. Season 1 was dodgy, but they really hit the floor running when they started series 2…

  2. Since you and I seem to have very similar tastes in podcasting, I think I will definitely check that one out. Thanks!!

  3. Anyone who likes podcast stories must listen to Scott Sigler’s “Infected” and then “Contagious” in that order because there part of a trilogy (3rd book not written yet) and then Nocturnal. These are amazing books. Also Phil Rossi’s “Cresent” and “Harvey” and also “Eden” and lastly but not least “Notes from the Vault”. Every one of these podcasts are brilliant and i can’t stress enough how good they are. All available on itunes or on the authors websites.

  4. Those are two podcast authors that I have on my list to listen to, especially Scott Sigler. I have heard trailers for Infected and Contagious. They sound great. I just need to find the time. A couple other podcast authors that I have listened to in that same genre are Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff and Myke Bartlett. Check those out if you haven’t heard them yet.

  5. One of the first podcasts I listened to was the 7th Son Trilogy by J C Hutchins. Scott Sigler is a favorite. He’s put out all his books on podcasts, even after he got a book deal with a publisher, part of the deal was that he could still give them away as podcasts. Good stuff.
