The best podcasts to Laughing about Video Games and history

Who am I?

I am a Social Worker, father and husband that enjoys video games and history. My journey with having cancer about 10 years ago had me sitting for long periods of time with nothing to do so I started listening to podcasts. That prompted me to start a video game podcast. This podcast is for dads (and moms) by dads on what to play, what the kids should not be playing, and finding the time to do it all. I enjoy almost all kinds of history of any subject, time frame and kinds. I’ve always been into the history of things, how it played out and the people involved. As a social worker, I’ve always wanted to hear people’s story and where they came from. This is what gets me so interested in history are the people and what they must have been thinking

What is my podcast playlist about?

My co-host John and I will play a game one of us recommends to the other, and then talk about what we liked or didn’t like and if you should buy it in our humble opinion. Just two old friends from NY living in California and having ENTIRELY too much fun doing it.

The podcasts I picked and why

1. The Dollop with Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds

Why this podcast?

This podcast is great and one of my favorites. If you want to laugh at history’s most famous stories then this is a must.

2. Get Played

Why this podcast?

What started as “How did this get played” which was about horrible video games and how it got published is now just a video game podcast. This podcast is a great time because of the comedy that each host brings to the table.

A podcast about myths we think are history and history that might be hidden in myths! Awesome stories that really (maybe) happened!

4. My Dad Wrote A Porno

Why this podcast?

While the title says it all, this podcast will keep you laughing all the way through. They aren’t in production as much as they used to be but you can start at the beginning and laugh all the way to the current episode. I got to see them live while in NY and they did not disappoint.

4.9

Every scandal begins with a lie. But the truth will come out. And then comes the fallout and the outrage.

Scandals have shaped America since its founding. From business and politics to sports and society, we look on aghast as corruption, deceit and ambition bring down heroes and celebrities, politicians and moguls. And when the dust finally settles, we’re left to wonder: how did this happen? Where did they trip up, and who is to blame? From the creators of American History Tellers, Business Wars and Tides of History comes American Scandal, where we take you deep into the heart of America’s dark side to look at what drives someone to break the rules and what happens when they’re caught. Hosted by Lindsay Graham.
