One of the best podcasts out there!
Pocketoid is a fantastic podcasts about handheld gaming as well as other nerdy things. Here are a few reasons why it's so great:
The chemistry between Jordan and Addison is so organic and perfect. They have such a great dynamic that you will want to hang out with them in real life. There's no drama, fighting, bickering, etc.
It's super easy to listen to: the conversation isn't dry, the jokes are great, and even the off-topics tangents are enjoyable as well. Pocketoid may not be as organized as 'professional' podcasts, but it's much more fun to listen to Pocketoid.
You don't need a lot of background knowledge to keep up with the conversation. Some podcasts assume you have all the knowledge the hosts have, and sometimes you have no idea what they're talkinga about. Pocketoid is highly accessible for all audiences: new gamers, veteran gamers, older gamers, younger gamers, and everyone in between.
There are a few things that you might not like which I should point out as well if you're new to the show.
First, the episode release periods aren't set, so sometimes they come out on time, but other times they can take a while. If you're caught up, it may take a few weeks before a new one is released.
The episodes can be kind of long. I personally don't mind this, but many episodes go on for an hour or more. If you're listening to this while you're working out, driving, etc., long episodes are fine, but if you're sitting at a computer, you may be sitting for a while.
Sometimes the hosts can be tangential. This doesn't bother me either, because those tangents are usually video game-related. However, if you're expecting it to be about handhelds 120% of the time, you may be disappointed.
Overall, Pocketoid is a fantastic podcast, and if you're interested in getting much more involved in handheld gaming, you should check this one out.
(Plus, Pocketoid was recently rebooted as Pocketoid SP, which is essentially an extension of the original Pocketoid. In any case, it's still really good, but you may want to start with the original Pocketoid before you dive into the reboot).
