Diggnation is one of the most popular podcasts on the Internet. Each week, Diggnation covers some of the top user-submitted stories from the social news networking site, Digg.com. "That's D-I-double-G dot com." The show has been hosted by Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht since it premiered on July 1, 2005 and was one of the first three shows on Revision3 (and the longest lasting of those three).

In each episode, Kevin and Alex enjoyed a drink (usually beer) while discussing stories submitted to Digg.com. Quite often, especially in later episodes, the stories were secondary and the other unrelated discussions seem to take up more time of the show.

The show ended in a two part live finale released respectively on January 9th and 18th, 2012. There was talk that Kevin and Alex may rejoin for live show reunions in the future, although those would happen on a case-by-case basis.
