So not only do I love Filmspotting, but I'm starting to love the message board peeps. I'm addicted to podcasts and was wondering what other podcasts people here listen to. Currenlty my rotation includes:

DL.TV - Video podcast on technology
Never Not Funny - Audio podcast starring Chicago-native, stand-up comedian Jimmy Pardo
Onion New Network - Video podcast of the satire gods
reason.tv - Video podcast hosted by Drew Carey much like Penn and Teller BS
this WEEK in TECH - Audio podcast also about technology (am I a nerd?)
Uncle Jay Explains the News - Funny, smartass video podcast

What else do you all suggest/listen to?

I subscribe to only audio podcasts since I'm limited to a Nano at the moment, but these are the audio ones I listen to regularly:

Book Panel with Simon Mayo - Simon and 2-3 readers review a couple of newly published books each week, and often have the authors in on the discussion

Daily Mayo - Simon Mayo again (he's a fantastic host/interviewer) - interviews with authors to politicians to film stars

KCRW's The Treatment - Elvis Mitchell is one of the best interviewers I've ever heard

Mark Kermode film reviews (of course!)

NPR: Movies

NPR: Fresh Air

This American Life

The Observer Film Weekly - UK podcast, reviews current releases and often has interviews with actors/directors

The Film Programme - another UK film podcast

Slate's Spoiler Specials - Slate's film critic Dana Stevens talks over a film with a guest

Watching the Directors - nice, long (1+ hour) conversations featuring various directors and their bodies of work

White Horse Inn - theology talks broadcast from my husband's alma mater

NPR: Car Talk's Call of the Week

Blasphemy!

Actually I listen to a number of other podcasts including:

The Treatment
The Hollywood Saloon - Pretty in depth but focuses mainly on American films.
Hardcore History
This American Life
Distorted View - Tasteless comedy but I love it.  I've kind of stopped listening though because it gets old after awhile.
Cinemaslave - Listen to this on occasion but the host is kind of annoying.

I don't know why I never listened to This American Life, but I just downloaded the latest episode.

The Treatment looks interesting as well.

The Totally Rad Show was one I was nervous about. Seemed like a bunch of college kids just having fun and no real show. Wait...that sounds perfect! Trying that one out too.

There is a definite structure and they (mostly) know what they are talking about. It's really fun.

Other than Filmspotting, the only podcast I listen to regularly is The B.S. Report from ESPN's Bill Simmons. I also listen to the Onion Radio News, but only sporadically.

I saw this and was really intrigued, but knew no one who listened to it. I'll give it a try.

I'm also now addicted to This American Life. What a great radio show. Are all stories semi-tragic?

Most of the best This American Life episodes have a good mix of tragedy and comedy.  It is so good.

My favorite podcast name is the one of Robert Krulwich's NPR reports.  It's called Hmmm....

Other public radio podcasts are:
This American Life
All Songs Considered
Talk of the Nation: Science Friday
NPR: Movies
On the Media
The Treatment
The Business
Studio 360
Only a Game
Garrison Keillor's The Writers Almanac
KEXP's Song of the Day
KEXP's Live Performances Podcast

And then I also get
Ask a Ninja
The Onion Radio News
I Should Be Writing
The Official Lost Podcast (new ones on the way!)
Ronald D. Moore's Battlestar Galactica Podcast

I've recently started listening to Watching the Directors, and I like it.
