"Sometimes people ask us 'how do you guys write the comic?' The answer is that we sit around and look at game news and we talk about it until we start laughing at something. It sounds boring and I think it probably is. The writing process behind one of those comics is recorded and made available for your listening pleasure. We call this Downloadable Content." - Gabe (Gabe and Tycho create the web comic Penny Arcade 3 days a week. New episodes are released on Wednesdays)
 
Humanoid Resources is an improvised podcast about the operations of the HR (Humanoid Resources) Department aboard the fictional U.S.S. Spaceship, in the year 2667.

Told through the lens of crazy professors, rogue government agents and sensible graduate assistants finding tapes in the present day, this podcast is worth every penny. Because it's free.
