If you’re like me who is pretty into music whenever I’m creating the next ‘big’ LEGO Idea concept (perhaps like a massive 18,000-piece custom LEGO Fortress of Solitude), or simply while sorting out my long, neglected LEGO bricks, having something to listen helps focus your energies at any task at hand. Perhaps an even better alternative is to listen to a podcast – much more if it is geared toward everything LEGO. As the BrickBlogger aptly observed, there are not many very dedicated podcasts for LEGO fans around, but there are some that are faithful to the craft. Here are some of them that are not just informative, but kind of funny and entertaining as well.
Though their last episode was aired way back in 2018, the content that these two stay-at-home Canadian dads are just classic gold. If Jeff and James are not busy taking out the garbage or mowing the lawn, you can find them chatting their way and running three separate podcasts back then: Breaking Dads which ran every Monday dealing with the lighter side of parenting; Epic Gumdrop which talks about video gaming and airs every Fridays; and of course, All Sorted every Wednesdays. For their last episode, this dynamic dad duo focused their sights on everything LEGO Helicopters. And though it’s quite unfortunate that they are no longer running this podcast, All Sorted still deserves a spot on our list of best LEGO podcasts out there. With topics that are thoroughly researched, Jeff and James can communicate them in a way that is uniquely LEGO: fun and engaging. You can listen to their past episodes via YouTube and iTunes.
Beyond the Brick
Joshua and Matthew started Beyond the Brick back in 2011 with the goal of having a thought or two from the world’s leading LEGO builders and designers and as a platform to showcase awesome LEGO MOCs.

Each episode is around 30 minutes to an hour and features some minimal video and images depending on the topics being discussed. You may catch them through their YouTube channel. Though Beyond the Brick seems to have replaced their usual podcast with the video interview format, you can still catch their collection of podcasts from 2013-2016 via their YouTube channel’s playlists.
