What podcasts do you like to listen to?

I thought it would be good to have a thread where people share what podcasts they like, so others can know what's out there. I like:

Star Wars: Beyond the Films, exploring the Star Wars Expanded Universe.

Words with Nerds, a generic geeky podcast.

I love The Moth, it's basically life This American Life, but the stories are told in front of a live audience.

Re: What podcasts do you like to listen to?

I work nights alone so I listen to a lot.

Welcome to Night Vale, an eerie and hilarious radio show set in a fictional desert community.

Nerd & Tie, a podcast one of my friends is on in which they discuss a variety of geeky subjects.

Commentary Track Stars, a series of movie commentary tracks done with the intention that you don't have to be watching the movie to enjoy it. Unfortunately the primary show has ended its run, but its sister shows CTS Babies and CTS: Off Topic are still running. I love the dynamic between these guys.

Fanboy Versus, a comic book review show that is my absolute favorite podcast. Always entertaining and informative, they've unfortunately been on hiatus since June and insist that they're coming back, but their back issues are great listening.

Re: What podcasts do you like to listen to?

This American Life - The obvious choice.
Stuff You Missed in History Class - A short (about 30 minutes) podcast on interesting people/events/phenomena in history.
BackStory with the American History Guys - History podcast with three historians, each specializing in a different century of American history and discussing a weekly topic.
RFF Radio - Weekly reality TV podcast, mostly focusing on Survivor, Big Brother, and The Amazing Race. They often have great in-depth interviews with cast members.

Re: What podcasts do you like to listen to?

Filmspotting - easily the best movie review podcast I've ever listened to, and I've been listening for several years now. I've been to two of their three live shows.

Filmspotting: Streaming Video Unit - a spin-off focused on, as its name says, streaming video (movies and tv shows on various services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Crackle, online rental, movies on demand, etc.).

The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith - interviews and panel discussions with film writers, directors, actors, and producers.

KCRW's The Treatment with Elvis Mitchell - interviews with film writers, actors, directors.

Nerdist Writers Panel - interviews and panel discussions with various types of writers (television, movies, comics, etc.).

This American Life is a common, though not consistent, subscription, as is Kevin Smith's Fat Man on Batman.
