They Don't Speak Peaman!

An old putdown in Japanese translates to "You speak peaman". 'Peaman' means green pepper and as you know, green peppers are hollow. So if a Japanese ever told you that you speak peaman, you are being told that what you are saying is empty.

Well the hosts of Lostcast , a very new tech/HTML5/game dev podcast are the complete opposite of that old Japanese putdown. These guys just keep the useful information flowing.

I just found Lostcast a few days ago (I can't remember how) and out of the seven episodes so far, and because I'm interested in CoffeeScript, I chose to listen to 'Episode 4: Native Coffee' .

I was very surprised at the sound quality of the show. And not only was the sound quality excellent, the show was just packed with new and useful development-related information.

After listening to that excellent 4th episode I thought that their 1st episode would probably not be as good because they'd still be just getting used to podcasting. Boy was I wrong. I have seldom heard such a great first episode of a podcast. The hosts introduced themselves expertly and in detail, keeping my interest, while also teaching me a whole lot of stuff about HTML5 game development, and how they got Onslaught!, their HTML5 game, running on iOS. (that answered the question I had after finding Onslaught in the App Store .)

The pacing of Lostcast never lets up, and the hosts play off of and compliment each other like seasoned professionals. They are very knowledgeable and also entertaining without being full of themselves (like the hosts of so many tech podcasts, especially gaming podcasts). The hosts just want to tell you what they are up to, what they've learned, and are really sincere in passing on their knowledge and experiences to their intended audience.

Never have I listened to a better tech/game dev podcast. Excuse me while I go download all their other episodes so I can catch up.

HTML5 Game Development has a voice and it's Lostcast

I believe that HTML5 game development is still finding it's way as a technology and Matt and Geoff are giving this journey a voice. They provide informative news and detail there own experiences as indie game developers. Where others might hold back information for the sake of a competitive edge, they openly and honestly tell it like it is for the benefit of the community. Never boring and often funny, this is a podcast I never miss.

Thank you for the hard work!

Excellent Podcast

I was kind of amazed that there was a podcast specifically about HTML5 game development and since it was such a niche thing I didn't expect it to be a very professionally produced podcast. Luckily I was proven wrong, this is an excellent podcast (in both content and audio quality) and I would highly recommend it to anyone with any interest in HTML5 game development. The hosts are both entertaining, they consistently pick very interesting guests, and the length seems about right.
