As you might know from my list of podcasts for .NET devs, I’m a big fan of podcasts to help make travel time less… [annoying | mind-numbing | wasteful].
As my recent work has focused more on game development, I’ve been keeping an eye out for relevant podcasts. Here are the ones I know of that focus primarily on game development and the gaming industry.
