I loved this episode of The Megadungeon , Interview with Che Webster.
They talk about Caverns of Thracia (which also ran a few years ago ago, using D&D 3.5 at the time), but in the intro they talk about the benefits of B/X: Basic and Expert D&D from the early eighties! Character creation is fast, combat is fast, the rules are simple. That’s why my Halberds & Helmets is basically a house ruled variant of it (via Labyrinth Lord).

@Judd How do you go about looking for more podcasts? Is there a way to search them, or has somebody made a collection of them? Do you have a some more you'd recommend?
