Any good podcasts to recommend?
The Dorktones Podcast out of the Netherlands. A M A Z I N G Officially, they stopped doing it about a year ago, but they still do about a show a month now. It doesn't matter. The music is eternal, and the entire series is archived so that when you subscribe to it via iTunes, you have the option of downloading any past show. They play an amazing mix of popular music covering pretty much everything from the 60s through the 80s, all ripped from original vinyl. They are "enhanced" podcasts so that you get record cover images and artist data for each song. There are some DJ in-jokes that go on a bit much sometimes, but trust me, this thing is a total gem.
If you like or have a passing interest in contemporary Latin music, Ritmo Latino is outstanding.
I also like Mark Kermode's BBC movie reviews. Hilarious and smart.
Also the NPR "Left Right and Center" show for entertaining political debate.
The Dorktones Podcast. Best. Podcast. Ever.
Gamespot's Hotspot is really amazing, Jeff Gershman and crew have great personality...
But only if you like video games. So yeah, if you are into video games check it out.
kevin smith's smodcast
This American Life. I love this show...
+1 - best thing on the radio.
#2 is Morning Becomes Eclectic on KCRW.
I do enjoy This American Life most times, not the david sedaris segments though & ira glass voice can be annoying at times.
The Kasper Hauser podcast is awesome, check out this TAL parodoy.
dissonance radio podcast has a few good shows/interviews on it.
the ED BANGER one is ok, not much stuff on it yet, but theres a cool 40+ minute mix by busy P
The only one I pay attention to is GameTrailer.com's Xbox 360 Spotlight. It's like the lazy and easy way of watching new game videos without having to find them on a web site.
rusirius and co are great.
If any of you are tabletop rpgers I have a ton
TAL and Kevin Smith's Smodcast are part of my weekly rotation.
I also like Creative Screenwriters podcast. Interviews and Q&As with screenwriters:

WNYC's Radio Lab. Format is similar to This American Life but themed toward science. Check out "Who am I?" episode.
im new to the podcast stuff
i like on stonesthrown and brooklyn radio:the rub podcast
but im looking for other genres of music, not really into talk show stuff
Stones Throw is great! The new Thank you J Dilla 3 is simply mind blowing.
Anyone know how to get older Fresh Air(NPR) podcasts? I wanna hear some of the interviews from The Wire cast members.
Point of Inquiry
I really like both though they aren't for everyone.
contemporary art podcast with artist interviews, art nerd stuff for weirdos.
i used to listen to the deathwish inc and GQ podcast but i gave up due to laziness.
I like the garagepunk podcasts though they can be a bit overwhelming since there are a ton of ongoing series within the podcast.
There were two general podcasts threads so I picked the older one to revive. It's been almost 8 years since anyone has replied to either thread, so I think it's about time. Podcasts seem to be enjoying a kind of revival themselves these days. Does anyone want to recommend a podcast or share which podcasts they are currently listening to? Discussions on individual podcasts are welcome too! Anything at all related to podcasts really...

+1 for the Proop dog! Recent eps are heavy on the boring preachy stuff. I miss the shows from a few years back where there were more laughs, but I enjoy his take on the serious stuff.
Nerd poker: funny people playing D&D. Seems like it might be boring, but it works. They have been on hiatus for quite a while. I'm listenting to back episodes

Jordan Jesse Go
The Beef and Dairy Network (sublime, absurdist)
