* PutOnABus: Pretty much the entire podcast after a series of layoffs and crucial contributors leaving the website. Coupled with a [=GamesRadar=] manager pretty much canning the show after hearing the content, TalkRadar has pretty much been decommissioned.

Unfortunately, after series of employee layoffs and restructuring of the website (including closing the forums) TalkRadar has essentially ended after Episode 198. Games Radar will apparently have a new podcast at some point, but it is unlikely that it will be called TalkRadar or truly resemble the original podcast. Thankfully, [[http://www.lasertimepodcast.com/ Laser Time]] is still going strong and they hosted an unofficial "200th" TalkRadar (they did not call it that, specifically, but nearly the entire original cast reunited) [[http://www.lasertimepodcast.com/2012/03/19/laser-time-200/ here.]]

* SignatureSoundEffect: Some sound effects and voice clips have become synonymous with segments of the show ([[RandySavage PHONECALLS ARE READY]]) with some hosts having sound effects directly related to them like A Current Affair to Mikel Wikiparez or Brett's Baby Laugh.

The podcast was split into three segments: The Top 7 (where hosts discuss the website's weekly Top 7 list), New Releases (covering that week's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin new releases,]] as well as other relevant gaming, and often non-gaming, news) and Community (comprising of a segment on Game Deals, Question of the Week for the site's forum dwellers to answer and phonecalls to the ''Talk Radar'' hotline). For four months beginning from Episode 150, after three years of late nights and nervous breakdowns, the podcast was split in two, one on Tuesday containing the Top 7 and New Releases and another on Friday with News and Community stuff. That didn't go well and four months later, the podcast reverted to its weekly format.

* RefugeInAudacity: The gamut of the show's humor runs from just how far the hosts would often go to cross several lines and vault back across. Chris Antista is often the worse offender, having interrupted the podcast at one point to test gay porn on the company iPad.


* PutOnABus: Shane Patterson, Paul Ryan, Brett Elston and Tyler Wilde, though the latter two promises to continue to appear on the cast semi-regularly given that Elston is now working with Capcom who are on the same highway as Future US and Tyler is literally a hallway away over at PC Gamer.

''Talk Radar'' is a weekly video game podcast from Gamesradar.com. It focuses on video games but tends to go on long hilarity filled tangents. Anyone looking for an entertaining, if filthy, circus of a podcast, will enjoy. On top of that it also provides an insight into the field of games journalism, and will frequently give advice on how to get into the industry, even if the hosts complain that that's the most-asked question on the podcast.

The podcast is split into three segments: The Top 7 (where hosts discuss the website's weekly Top 7 list), New Releases (covering that week's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin new releases,]] as well as other relevant gaming, and often non-gaming, news) and Community (comprising of a segment on Game Deals, Question of the Week for the site's forum dwellers to answer and phonecalls to the ''Talk Radar'' hotline). For four months beginning from Episode 150, after three years of late nights and nervous breakdowns, the podcast was split in two, one on Tuesday containing the Top 7 and New Releases and another on Friday with News and Community stuff. That didn't go well and four months later, the podcast reverted to its weekly format.

Within the breaks between segments, old commercials, interviews, community stuff, sketches either made by the hosts themselves or other people, ridiculously inappropriate promos shilling the podcast to the people already listening or just any old funny nonsense are played. More often than not, any attempt to curb the podcast into a relatively professional course is derailed by free-flowing booze.
