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

It's basically just Kevin Smith talking bullshit for an hour with Mosier being his foil, but if like Smith's humour it's great.

For the most part I don't, or just barely scrape by.

On my main desktop computer, I have something like 250 unlistened to podcasts (most of them entire semesters of audio from Princeton/Harvard/Berkeley courses). On my work laptop, I have about 60 unlistened to podcasts (most of them tech/project management related), and on my personal laptop I have about 125 unlistened to podcasts (however, most of them are video podcasts like Mahalo Daily, Rocketboom, and Triggerstreet TV).

I do a lot of travel for my job and do a lot of listening on airplanes. I also do a lot of tech gruntwork that doesn't require what we call "thought" (for example, today all I'm doing is reformatting huge chunks of data for this database I designed, so all I'm doing is running Excel spreadsheets through a reformatting script). This is perfect for audiobooks and podcasts. Last summer when I was doing a lot of travel, I was averaging 4 to 5 hours of audiobooks/podcasts a day plus one DVD/movie-in-a-theater each evening, five days a week. The weekends were totally devoted to the wife, so no iPods or movies were allowed.

Polyamory Weekly - "Tales from the front of responsible non-monogamy from a pansexual, kink-friendly point of view".

Even if you don't think you are interested in any of the categories above, it is a good 'cast for general relationship issues.
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

This reminds me that I do also listen to the Savage Love podcast (I already deleted this week's episode off the iPod when I wrote the above list).

Nominally,it is a sex podcast, but more often than not it is a podcast about relationships. Plus he says some really funny things about people who overuse trendy buzz words like "Polyamory."

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
I have a bit of a problem with Elvis and his interview style, but he gets some really good people.  I also hate how he constantly annouces the call letters to his station every two minutes.

Yeah, he gets great people in. It is annoying that he announces the call letters - I don't blame him for that though; I'm sure he has to do it. Interesting that you don't like his interview style; I like it because he seems to me so genuinely interested in the person across from him - the questions and flow of conversation seem natural, not at all stagey. I like that.
