What are your favorite podcasts?

So I'm gearing up for quite a bit of road/air business travel in the next couple of months and am looking for some good podcasts to listen to and wondered what y'all like to hear.

I don't download that many and so I generally don't have many stockpiled for future listening.

My daily/weekly downloads include:

The Mike O'Meara Show
Tech 411
Big O and Dukes
The Marc and Lowell Show

These are all related (some of the same cast members in all all of them, most of the time) back to the Mike O'Meara show, which is the modern day version of the Don and Mike Radio Show from back in the day. Podcast website

I've tried a few others, and try to stick to the hour-long format for the most part. I've tried (and didn't really like) the Nerdist but on the otherhand, have loved Ricky Gervais' audiobooks..

What else should I give a listen to?

Coverville, a podcast dedicated to covers. Pretty big fan and I've been listening since 2007. If you like music and you like covers, this one's a treat.

Kevin Pollak is a favorite. He has like a hundred shows so far, and they are free on iTunes.

Re: What are your favorite podcasts?

I find Subpop Records podcast to be a bit of fun. Nothing really heavy - just a video or a track...but it's a good way to check out some new music.

I also like KEXP Seattle - Music That Matters and KEXP's Song of the Day.

Re: What are your favorite podcasts?

This thread seems strangely familiar.... I just started a similar one about a month ago. I like to listen to This American Life, Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!, BackStory with the American History Guys (doesn't come out very often, but very interesting and informative; run by three historians, one from each century of American history), Stuff Mom Never Told You, Stuff You Missed in History Class (this one and the previous one are from the How Stuff Works website), and RFF Radio (a reality tv podcast, mostly Survivor, Amazing Race, and Big Brother).
