And for those of you still playing our home game, the actual feed is

feed://feeds2.feedburner.com/heaven_podcast

Which when I looked at it has the first episode of War and the associated promos and God interviews at the top.

I'm not the only one, I know.  Where can I find a good Military Sci Fi podcast?

I'm afraid I gave up on Earthcore about a quarter of the way through it.
I gave it a second chance. It was pretty good after all.
Now I'm nearly finished with Sigler's "Nocturnal".
I feed The Pod.

I got al Siglered out.  High body count doesn't make up for weak writing.  When I was forced to purge my podcast list, he was one of the first to go.

I decided to ressurect this thread because it's always a good place to come for other podcast suggestions.  Here's some recent recommendations from another thread:

Sad to say, I have gone through the backlog already including reviews and meta casts. The only thing keeping me sane are the episodes of the Drabble cast and the new episodes of Pseudopod. Where are some other good podcasts of funny or unique scifi & horror? I already went through all the well told tales, and fear on demand. Not to mention you should be writing and classic tales so where do i go now? Any suggestions?

You should check out StarShipSofa. Its different.. its not purely fiction, they run fact articles and reviews too.. but its really really engaging, even the nonfiction segments they run are interesting. Plus the fiction stories they run there are by people like Paolo Bacigalupi, Tad Williams, Tanith Lee, Gene Wolfe, Bruce Sterling.. and that was just from a quick look at their webpage.

I'll add some more to the list:

Tor.com has two podcasts: Audio Fiction, hosted by Mur Lafferty, and The Geek's Guide to the Galaxy, hosted by John Joseph Adams & David Barr Kirtley.  I especially like Geek's Guide.  It is a lot of fun.

The fans of the Drabblecast have recently spun off their own podcast called The Dribblecast.  Basically, it is members of the Drabblecast forums reading stories that were written by Drabblecast fans and posted on the forums.  There are some good fun stories up their.  It is also remarkably easy to join in and try your hand at podcasting.  I have produced a couple entries myself.  I read one of Scattercat's stories, and the other one I just sent in last night so it hasn't been posted yet.  Learn about becoming part of this here.

Actually, I should back up, the whole idea for a fan run podcast started when Steven Lidster asked Drabblecast forumites to read for a new podcast of his stories: Clowns and Bunnies and Other Scary Things.  He has the first episode up featuring readings by Abigail Hilton, Liz Mierzejewski, and Norm Sherman.  Check it out.

I really like Tor's Geek's Guide to the Galaxy, except for the guy giggling.  Guys should not giggle.  It's a really cool podcast otherwise.

Is Mur's Tor.com podcast still releasing stories?  I haven't seen one in quite a while...I've been listening to tor.com/category/tordotstories...

Unfortunately, no.

Mur talked a little about it in this thread.

Yes, I thought Geek's Guide to the Galaxy with John Joseph Adams and David Barr Kirtley was going to die too, but this recent tweet makes me happy.

Attention Geek's Guide fans! We'll be ending our regrettable hiatus and relaunching the show soon. Stay tuned for details!

Two podcasts that are definitely worth checking out are Beneath Ceaseless Skies and Clarkesworld!

I've been very, very impressed by the Lightspeed podcast (what I've heard).

A friendly suggestion from Podiobooks - try the Shadowmagic books. The first one is now out in print as well and the second one is still being released.

I found Seigler and JC Hutchins a bit too breathless in their delivery for late night listening, but I enjoyed them for car trips.

The Levantian Chronicles are also pretty good, but unfortunately since they are more of a audio series rather than novel, they kind of leave you hanging at the end of the first season (not quite a who-shot-JR moment, but many threads are left hanging for next season).

Daughters of the Sun (also on Podiobooks) is worth a listen, but it is also in strongly in need of a sequel.

Chasing the Bard by Phillipa Ballantyne is really worth a listen. I enjoyed both her writing and her narration.

I really liked the Crown Conspiracy - recently released with Nathan Lowell as narrator. This is part of a larger series and the next book is to be released later this year (according to something I read somewhere....)

Can someone recommend a good science fiction news podcast?
I have been listening the Slice of Scifi, but the amount of fake laughter in that podcast is REALLY, REALLY getting on my nerves.

I like Sci Fi Dig, which is almost more of an opinion show, but Aaron Macom is an engaging host. I also just started listening to Completely Comics, which is obviously more comics oriented but they do touch on current TV and some film stuff. Both are laugh-track free, Sci Fi Dig has trivia questions and lists new DVD releases, Completely Comics was tied to The Cape for a few episodes. They both tend to run long, Sci Fi Dig is often 1-2 hours long, and Completely Comics hits the hour mark every now and then too.
