Podcast17 is a weekly Podcast about news, reviews, interviews, gossip, rumors, websites, maps, modifications, and media releases relating to the Half-Life community, Valve and the Half-Life universe. The name is a reference to "City 17", a fictional location and city in Half-Life 2. William McMahon (AKA CubicVirtuoso) is the main host and owner of Podcast17.

The first official Podcast was posted on October 18th, 2008 in which William and Phillip Marlowe (of PlanetPhillip) introduced their new website and vision for Podcast17. Phillip has since retired as a co-host of the show and now only appears periodically. The Podcasts were originally recorded weekly using Ventrilo on Sundays at around 3:00PM GMT and then were released a few days later depending on scheduling. The recording is now done using Skype and CallBurner.

The name was originally going to be "About That Beer", a reference to a phrase Barney says in Half-Life 2; however, the user-based poll on PlanetPhillip pulled ahead for Podcast17. Based on the poll and a decision between Phillip and William, it was decided to be named Podcast17.
