Default Alternatives to diggnation

Are there any shows out there like diggnation? One that covers current tech news stories with a lot of ad libs for example. I'm sure I could google it but I'd like to hear the forum goers thoughts. Thanks.

I was wondering the same thing. I think what makes Diggnation so great is that almost everyone here have followed Kevin and Alex from TechTV and the beginning of podcasting. The pioneers of podcasting so to speak. At least that's how I feel about it.

But I am open to hear if anyone else has found something similar. I'm sure there will be some form of Diggnation like show to come around sooner or later.

I am yet to find a podcast like DiggNation.

There are tech podcasts. Look at how Leo Laporte has corned that market with TWiT ...

There are guys sitting on the couch bullshitting on various subjects - tech, sports, movies, etc.

But I am yet to find a podcast that does both in a way like DN did.

Most of the "couch" podcasts are terrible. They make public access TV look like Emmy nominated TV (one exception is music for some reason ... go figure).

Most of the "tech" podcasts are talking heads behind a desk, and again aren't that great.

So - I'll also say "If anyone knows a podcast ..." because I am yet t find a replacement.

NSFW seems like an alternative to me. Been watching it for a while now.

Different, but good

I don't think you will find a show that goes into as many areas as Diggnation does. I see it as three areas: tech, social\off topic personal times, cool videos. I've found lots of shows that touch on one, but not all. You won't see anyone on TWIT drinking more than one glass of wine or messing up an Ad copy (which shouldn't matter on referral based ones).

For a good audio podcast, try Stuff You Should Know by HowStuffWorks, its a great podcast with two guys telling random facts and personal stories. It usually is between 25-35 minutes long.

I really wish they would bring back the Digg Reel, just rename it and don't worry about the similarity to Tosh.0

Also I want Alex to come out with a Star Wars podcast for the new MMO like he did for SWG back in 2003.

I don't think Martin would quite fill the hole left by diggnation. Alex and Kevin were usually quite funny to me (especially) when drunk. Martin just seems a bit crazy. It's funny, just in a very different way.

Default Film Riot

I have been watching film riot for a while and while not being a film major or anything of the sort, I enjoy the humor of it and kind of 'mindlessly' watch the actual film lessons that go along with it. Totally Rad Show is also good and it has Alex and i've come to like Jeff and Dan as well. The one that's not a Rev3 show that I like is "Stuff you should know". Its from the how stuff works website in the same was Diggnation was to digg.

Yes "Stuff you should know" is good, too bad the website for the podcast sucks.
