Both the podcast and the Diecast are awesome. The podcast is full of useful information and comical shenanigans. The Diecast is just plain fun to listen to.
Games, Books, D&D - Lot of fun!
Leaky and Cezzaria a lot of fun. Kyle and Jenn have great chemistry as players, and keep the story moving with antics, roleplay, and good mechanics discussion. The latter episodes of the regular show are really well done, too. The quality picked up as they went.
Deep, thoughtful conversation and utter chaos
The podcast contains two series: one discusses how books based on games relate to their respective game, the other is an exercise in madness as two evil characters navigate the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Both are entertaining, but in very different ways.
I don't have the time I used to have to read and play games, so I enjoy the book discussions as a substitute for playing the games and getting the story. Travis and Kyle clearly love the medium of games, and show that with their honest discussions of the good and the bad of both the game and the stories that expand the game's world.
In Dicast, the entertainment comes from the chaotic and terrible choices made by each of the characters. The conniving elf is forced to put up with a cannibalistic dwarf as he searches for his next battle/meal. Their purpose is a mystery. I think maybe even to themselves.
