Good variety, great personalities, and solid content.
All Games Considered is a biweekly podcast that covers a wide spectrum of games, probably one the widest out there. The hosts have a great dynamic between them and their enthusiasm comes across very well in the podcast, and they have consistent regular features such as "Games You May Never Have Heard Of" by contributer Ben Belestra. With RPG's, board games, card games, in-depth shows, and survey shows, there's something for everyone.
It's a great podcast
This is the best gaming podcast I've heard, and I've listened to a bunch of them. It's professionally done, with interesting, well-informed opinions.
Good Podcast with Great Rapport
I am actually listening to Mags and Mark talk about the State of the Gaming episode as I write this. I have been listening faithfully to All Games Considered since early in the Summer of 2009. I find the crew's enthusiasm for the hobby to be infectious. I also find thier insights to be helpful as I try to find my way through all the options presenting themselves to gamers on limited budgets. I listen to a lot of gaming podcasts and this is one that I always look forward to.
