Does anyone have any suggestions for Game Design Podcasts?

I currently listen to "Drive to Work", by Mark Rosewater and was looking form some more things to throw on my iPod as we get into the holidays.

The Ludology podcast has been focusing some of their episodes toward designing a game publicly... It's kind of interesting.

Ludology is great for in-depth discussions of board game design theory

Games With Garfield doesn't show up very often, but it's quite good and has an impeccable pedigree

Plaid Hat Podcast and Dice Hate Me's State of Games are by up-and-coming designers/publishers

Building the Game is by two newbie designers who are already having some early success

Flip the Table will teach you how to NOT design games--and the show is a blast

Funding the Dream is required listening if you ever plan to do a Kickstarter project

The Boardroomers, Paper Money and Law of the Geek cover industry news that designers might benefit from knowing

The Game Design Round Table and Game Design Theory are both new, but they seem like promising complements to Ludology for theoretical topics (though both cover video games as well as board games)

Other gaming podcasts that often have interesting interviews with designers and publishers include On Board Games, Boardgame Babylon, The Spiel, The Little Metal Dog Show, Cardboard Jungle, the G*M*S Magazine Podcast and Not Just Another Gaming Podcast.

By all the known deities Cardboardedison you are are a great contributor to the meta brain of designers.

Massive thanks to you. http://cardboardedison.tumblr.com/ is the single best collation of design materials I've yet found. I've been lost in its archives for weeks.

I know podcasts have their place and your list above is a great summary, but for me a well written article or interview is just so much more usable. I can skim it, search it, go back to a specific point in it at a glance, collate text from multiple articles easily etc. Maybe its a time thing.

Thanks for the kind words. Just sharing what we've picked up from others!

You're right about the usability of written materials over audio.

The big benefit that podcasts have is that you can listen to them while doing something else: traveling, for example, or if you're lucky enough to have a job that lets you listen while you work.
