First podcast discussing wargmes that I remember listening to was Point2Point. Tried to find a list of wargame podcasts, but couldn't.

I don't think there are many pure wargame podcasts: probably only nine out of the 15 or so listed here (please add to this list). However, the group of wargame podcasts do have collectively over 500 episodes (with Point2Point, Three Moves Ahead and Half Squads having the preponderance of those)...over 500 hours of content: that will keep you company for quite awhile.

Also, when putting together the list, the only way I found to do the list was via thread (no option to add podcasts that I could find).

Podacsts are listed as podcasts (in the browse tab of BGG) and guilds (in the misc tab of BGG) for some reason.

The stats listed here (# of episodes, etc) are as of FEB 1, 2016; five new wargame podcasts have appeared since early 2012. A number have ceased operations: they come, they go, they are replaced by new content.

Comment: A fabulous development for our tribe: Jason White - of Point2Point fame: the guys that started this all - back on the air with his own podcast. Decent banter & good discussion on 1st episode; really looking forward to more episodes. Really liked the discussion around whether or not you can actually convert someone into becoming a gamer (I also think not - they have to take the first step).
