I'm biased to my personal favourite, my own; Beyond the Wall, also available on Itunes, that airs every Monday. But in the interest of fairness (and some other great content) but there are also 3 other English-language based casts; Banter Behind the Throne (Thursdays), The White Book (Fridays),  formerly 2champs1chump, and the video cast Summer is Coming.

The White Book is the only one I've listened to and it was decent enough. Though it seems more geared towards Thrones 1.0 players moving into 2.0 than new players to the system--which makes some sense since I guess it is just a rebranding of a pretty popular Thrones 1.0 podcast.

 

The episodes I listened to had some mic and level issues for a couple people though, which made it a little hard to listen to via headphones (having to constantly increase and decease volume between speakers). I will probably try to listen to some more of their stuff when I am more versed in the game--by then I should have a better grasp of some of what their talking about and their content should be less focused on comparisons to Thrones 1.0 cards and meta. They seem like fun guys with a lot of experience though so you could check them out. 

 

Honestly for a half second I was considering trying to start a Thrones 2.0 podcast myself from a new-player perspective since that was what I was kind of looking for but then I realized that A) I don't know anyone else that plays the game and B) I don't know if anyone but me really wants that. If you're trying to learn the game and immerse yourself in the emerging meta to become a better player you WANT to hear from the veterans.

I would be interested in a podcast / video cast centered around  being new to the game / LCGs and about build a local community to game with / get support from. That fresh perspective is often more interesting then a group of grand champions explaining their latest 'perfect' deck.

+1 here.  I'm relatively new to the LCG format and held off on GoT until 2.0 specifically to experience the game's evolution as it develops and discover it's nuances along with the community.

I've been listening to the more recent episodes of Beyond the Wall and The White Book, and while their veteran perspective and insight has been very beneficial, I would also love to hear a podcast from new players who are learning the game without any preconceptual baggage.

Beyond the Wall - Season 3, Episode 6

 
Yes. More Lauren. And to be honest it is because she is a intelligent and personable voice that works well in a podcast AND has a strong working knowledge of the topic that offers another perspective to the topics that, often, Istaril and Darknoj tend to agree or have similar opinions. 
 
Lauren would make a great third voice for BtW.
