For some time I have been listening to a few WoW related podcasts. There are many out there ranging from what sounds like people just recording their in-game conversations on vent to shows that have top-notch production values rivaling any FM radio show. These are a few that I like:
The Instance: Scott Johnson, Dills, and Turpster – Although The Instance may not be the best place for in-depth information, this show’s polish is beyond compare. Imagine your favorite morning radio show, but about World of Warcraft. The Instance has 3 main segments: Big News of the Week, Rumors and Scuttlebutt, and Towne Crier. The first 2 seem self-explanatory to me and Towne Crier is a listener Q&A segment. The main show is usually followed by several short segments from others in the WoW community. These segments include comedy skits and informational bits.
Convert to Raid: Pat Krane and the CtR Crew – Another show that is high on entertainment value and polish. As you may have guessed from the name, this one is all about raiding. This show is also divided into segments. Raiding News covers the latest rumors and news that affects raiding. The War Room is all about in depth Boss Strats. The Scouting Report spotlights different classes and specs. Most often they have a guest on the show who is an expert at playing that particular class and spec. Leading the Raid discusses leadership issues within guilds and raid teams. CtR is also followed by mini segments, many by the same folks as those on The Instance (just different subject matter).
The Hunting Party Podcast: Euripedes, Darkbrew, and Frostheim – If you love Hunters, you will love this show. While not quite as high on production values as The Instance and CtR, this show is extremely well done and professional. It is jam packed with the latest hunter news and info. And the guys even throw in a wee bit of comedy too!
Team Waffle Podcast – This is a Podcast about Druids in World of Warcraft. If you are scratching your head at the show’s title, listen to the first episode for the explaination. While this show is definitely a more amateur affair compared to the previous 3 shows, it does have lots of great information about druids. There aren’t many druid podcasts out there and Team Waffle is the best druid podcast I have found by far.
So if you have a long commute or work from a computer and can have earbuds in, I recommend hitting I tunes and seeing what the podcasting world has to offer you!
