Whats your favorite podcasts?

I spend most of my work day on my own wiring up portable cabins so i have started listening to podcasts as i have grown bored of my usual music.

The ones i am currently subscribed to are

Mysterious Universe - A lot of nonsense about paranormal stuff including aliens, bigfoot conspiracies etc - i know most of it is bullcrap but it is entertaining and the presenters are pretty funny

BBC Inside Science - talks about the latest science discovery and news, really interesting show and not to dry

BBC radio 4 Friday Night Comedy - mostly political satire and comedy

Wired podcast - not the best show, talks about technology and gadgets.

Tech Fetish - bunch of guys talking nonsense mostly, something to pass the time


So what do you listen to on a regular basis?

This is Only a Test
Adam Savage (Mythbusters) and the Tested crew talk about random stuff once a week. It's pretty good.

99% Invisible
A design podcast that tells the remarkable stories about the design of everyday stuff all around us. It's pretty awesome.

Hello Internet
CGP Grey (of youtube fame) and Brady Haran (Numberphile, Periodic Videos and more) talk about random stuff. It's pretty alright.

This Week In Tech
I haven't been keeping up with this lately. Who hasn't heard of this one, though, right?

This is a great video game podcast, but I think it's more or less over now. Either the guy lost interest or ran out of stuff to talk about. Olly Moss did posters for it too. So bummed that aren't more updates now.

Hands down the best podcast ever is:
Hardcore History
Dan Carlin is an epic (his)story teller. Nothing comes close in my opinion. Only the past year is available and the rest is downloadable for a price.

In Our Time
this a Radio 4 show. A topic in Science, History, Philosphy or other is talked about with 3 top experts in the matter (usually university professors). No attempt whatsoever to dumb things down so be ready to rewind.

Inside Health
Another Radio 4 show. They pick a health topic and go around the NHS interviweing top experts. Really well done.

Guardian Science Weekly
Science show. Well done, and they cover most of the science news you need to be aware of.

More or Less
Debunking of statistical nonsense and headline abuses. Very funny.

And plenty others, but these are a good start.

I've always liked Kermode and Mayo's film reviews from 5Live, but I don't seem to find the time to ever listen to them, let alone all these other interesting suggestions.
