List of backlogs, including podcasts.

I have a fair amount of podcasts that I listen to on a regular basis. Sometimes there are periods where I don't listen to anything new (except for the BBC one...despite me not being British), and the. The backlog builds up. Other times there are podcasts that I jump into the middle of and want to catch up on older episodes for a variety of reasons (specific interests, continuity, development of style). I guess this can extend to other subjects as well (video game, movie, music, tv, anime, webcomic, etc). What do you all have on backlog that you are trying to kill through?

I am currently going through the old RPG Backtracks right now. I got into them for a few cool ones (Legaia, FFX, Phantasy Star) and decided I wanted to hear them all. Just about to start episode 28 a 4 hour marathon of Super Robot Taisen information. But if I can't fit that into my schedule! then I will jump to the latest episode, 110 about Marvel Ultimate Alliance and then jump backwards into 28 just to keep things going.

    That is not a bad idea. I have heard other people talk about listening to podcasts on 2x speed before, just as they listen to certain types of music at 2x speed. BeyondPod is the podcasting app of choice for me too. I heard about it early last year when I got into podcasting through my phone. Prior to that, rather, I would use the podcasting section on Winamp and then move the podcasts to my MP3 player for listening at work and on long drives at my previous job. Ounces that I would recommend to you would be (without knowing personal preference):

    RooterTeeth podcast (formerly the drunktank, slice of life recently instead of that and gaming) by Roosterteeth productions
    The Patch (spun off of the Drunktank but it is only a so-so gaming podcast, works better if you have that backlog of regular podcasts under your belt.) also by Roosterteeth
    Mission Log (serious critical review of old Star Trek episodes)
    BBC World Service (good to hear world news from a slightly different point of view)
    and then I have a few economics/business and tech podcasts I listen to as well and could recommend.

    I hope you can find something good out of this list to listen to.

    In terms of podcast backlogs, I really only have The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe, who are up to their #444th episode. I'm on their #89th, and have listened to the last recent two months or so of episodes. It's quite entertaining and informative, being as much a science news podcast as it does on covering woo woo. I want to start listening to Writing Excuses since Brandon Sanderson is on that one, but I haven't yet.

    I have a smallish anime backlog to get through. There's the last few episodes of Star Ocean EX, the last half or so of Stellvia, I just started on Ultra Maniac, completing Chrono Crusade, as well as atually starting on Steins;Gate. I'm sure I'm missing a title or two there.

    Oh, no, those are just anime series. The title of the thread has "including podcasts" in it, so I assumed that we could list other things we had a backlog of that aren't podcasts.

    Gaming: *TILT*

    Podcast: I'm trying to get through the Discover Music Project and finish a relisten of the Player One Podcast. It's kind of hard to do that when you have your own show to edit.

    Smacd, I believe they said that they were going to do TAS then move to the movies. After that they were deciding whether or not to alternate TNG and DS9 as they aired or what not. We will all know about Memorial Day or so when they finish the TAS section.

    A full breakdown of the podcasts that I listen to are:

    (News)
    Global News - BBC

    (Tech)
    Tech News Today (suspended this since the change from Tom Merritt....just not the same anymore)
    NPR Tech podcast

    (Science)
    TED Radio Hour
    Astronomy Cast (been slacking for a month now)

    (Entertainment)
    The Nerdest (I pick and choose from there)
    RoosterTeeth podcast
    Mission Log (finally all caught up)
    Talking Toons with Rob Paulson (picked and choose but with the intent on going all the way back)

    (Business/Finance)
    NPR Planet Money
    Motley Fool Money
    Freakonomics Radio
    WNYC RadioLab

    (Gaming)
    The Patch
    RPG Cast
    RPG Backtrack (at #28, but listened to about 40 total)

    (Hobby)
    Anime Addicts Anonymous (haven't started it)
    Anime Pulse (haven't started it)
    Beer and Battle: A D&D podcast (just started this in the middle to see if it was any good)
    Critical Hit: A D&D podcast (just started this in the middle to see if it was good)
    Thursday Knights (haven't started it yet)
    If I don't make it home, tell my wife I said Hello.

    Just poking around the forums. The topic interest me, as a big backlog person (both in games and podcasts...as well as some other things). I agree that a good podcast player with speed settings help.

    Then I saw that you were listening to RPGBacktrack. WOOT! I love RPGBacktrack. And I'm not biased. No siree. I will say that in editing it, at some point I learned to use the filter that kills dead space. In any given hour of normal podcast convo, there's at least 10 minutes of dead space, give or take. My filter eliminates 80% of that.

    On top of my podcasts, I recently bought a Humble Bundle of like 7 audio books. So, now, I have an audio book backlog as well, hahahahaha :)

    There is a breaking bad podcast? XD I hope it only has good things to say for those of us in Albuquerque!

    Plus I have finished episodes 1-35, 50, 61, 63, 66, 71, 76, 97, 100, 102, 104, 109-112.


    I have also added Terra and Lightning's RPG Roundup to my list of podcasts. Their first episode is not that bad. I have a good feeling about it so far.
