    I've recently started listening to a lot of podcasts while I work and play on my PC (which is a lot of the time), most of them have been WoW podcasts so far which are good, but I'd like some focused on PC technology and gaming. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    EDIT: Oh, I have PC Gamer UK podcast of course.

    Gamespot. While there are tons out there, thats my top dog, you can actualy listen to it without listening to 3-4 people trying constantly to talk louder and funnier over each other... which gets anoying as hell when you're on headphones at work.

    The bane of most gaming podcasts, ign/1up ect.

    Check out gamers inc, and td gaming, they do a decent job of covering the generic weekly grind.

    Another vote for giant bomb, might be light on pc content but the guys are entertaining enough that it doesnt really matter :).

    Trance around the world
    Tiesto's clublife
    A state of trance
    Gareth emery podcast

    All good in my opinion :p

    Edit... not really PC related but worth a listen
    Edit 2... also just noticed this is in the PC Games section (thought it was GD :p )

    Avoid twit.tv! I decided to give their general 'Week in Tech' podcast 3 chances and I just barely made it through the 3rd one. Its the most annoying podcast I have ever listened too! I don't even know where to start, first of all it should just be called 'Week in Apple' because they will talk about the tiniest bit of news from Apple for up to an hour while going off on annoying tangents every now and then. The people they have on the podcast seem to know very little about technology (Unless its Apple). There are ads where the host just tells you about how amazing audible.com is and then the guests will chime in with comments like 'OMG yeah its like so awesome, I havent read this much in years' (Its audiobooks your not even reading!!!). At least every 5 mins someone says something completely retarded. Okay I'll stop now, I needed to get that out of my system.

    Annnyyyyway podcasts I like
    Engadget - http://www.engadget.com/tag/podcasts/
    Good and to the point tech news that seems to focus quite a lot around the mobile platform.
    4guys1up - http://www.1up.com/do/minisite?cId=3176640
    Can be quite funny some times
    Bit-tech - http://www.bit-tech.net/blog/podcasts/
    Just started listening to these podcasts and they seem good. The hardware one is great but they only do it every couple of months or so
