My favorite podcast ever is Filmspotting. A spin-off dedicated to streaming movies and television was recently launched, Filmspotting: SVU.

For another movie podcast that's much more rough (i.e., less production and polish), I know the hosts of a small podcast called Oops, All Movies!. I also know a few people who just started a video game podcast called Co-Op Mode. For comic books, I know the hosts of Distinguished Comic Book Podcast.
I used to Listen to Filmspotting, took some time off, and now I'm listening to it again. Apparently, they got a new host, but the format of the show is pretty much the same. I enjoy it, and I also enjoy the SVU episodes so far.

I listen to mostly sports podcasts so I don't know if I can offer any good ones. I guess the one that's somewhat close to both sports and other interests is the BS Report (He even interviewed the President a few weeks ago). There are some really great interviews there, like the recent ones with Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.

Re: Podcast suggestions

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

That has given me PLENTY to try.

So far:
Love of 6 - too odd, thumbs down.
Overthinking It - too noisy, thumbs down.
Mark Kermode - only listened to some of an ep, but I think it's a thumbs up... I like their presenting style which is key for me.
Life After Trek - know it wasn't a suggestion, but I remembered reading about it on TrekToday - really enjoyed Natalia Nogulich interview and look forward to more.

All these suggestions really reinforce my decision to drop Smodcast. Why labour through hours in the hope of the odd gem when there's so much out there.

I miss Matty, but once upon a time I missed Sam too. Josh Larsen was a worthy choice to take up the second seat when Matty decided to move on, and Michael Phillips now guest hosts once a month too.

I know. Larson does seem to bring some very interesting insight (especially this last week's episode when they were talking about Pulp Fiction) and I respect Phillips as well so it's cool that he's on at the end of the month. I think the thing I don't like about the show is I'm not sure if their humor is forced or not. Some of the jokes they say come across as kind of lame, but that's a minor thing.

Re: Podcast suggestions

I enjoy the How Stuff Works group of podcasts, as someone earlier in the thread mentioned. There are about 10 different ones to choose from, on a variety of subjects. I prefer Stuff You Missed in History Class and Stuff Mom Never Told You. They have about two episodes a week, but they are usually only about 30 minutes long and very self-contained to one specific topic, so I often skip the episodes on topics I am not that interested in.
