    I just recently got into these, and I"m looking for more.

    I currently have:
    Adam Carolla
    BS Report
    Mike & Mike
    A couple local sports/news talk shows

    What else do you all listen to? Any suggestions?

    I really enjoy some of the Slate.com podcasts. The culture one is good, though sometimes a little high brow for me. The political one is really, really good. So is the movie spoiler podcast.

    I've cut my podcasting intake a lot, but the two I really find remarkable are Dan Carlin's Hardcore History and the video game podcast A Life Well Wasted. Episodes come months apart though.

    Now Playing, a movie review podcast, is pretty good. They'll review a series of films, usually tying in to one new one that's coming out. They've done a lot of the horror series, like Friday the 13th and Halloween, but also take on different ones once in a while. They're wrapping up a Phillip K. Dick retrospective this week, with "The Adjustment Bureau" the final one.

    Carolla and Simmons are always reliable. I like Steve Czaban, too, although that's his radio show and not a podcast per se.

    Firewall and Iceberg for TV criticism
    Sound Opinions if you're a music nerd
    It's cliche, but This American Life is really great in a generalist sort.
    Sklarbro Country is a guilty pleasure.
    I like The Nerdist, as well.

    It's already been cited, but I was turned on to Hardcore History the last time this thread came up, so it deserves still another mention:


    Other good history shows:

    http://thehistoryofrome.typepad.com/the_history_of_rome/ (Exhaustive.)

    Science stuff:

    http://www.astronomycast.com/ (One topic per show, be it a person, object, or phenomenon.)
    http://www.theskepticsguide.org/ (News stories, good regular features, bad puns.)

    General humor:

    http://www.gregfitzsimmons.com/ (Whether alone or interviewing his friends/colleagues.)
    http://www.adamcarolla.com/LMBlog/ (Larry Miller has turned into a self-aware Abe Simpson, rambling on about whatever crosses his mind.)

    Simmons is good during football season, or when he has an interesting guest (Patton Oswalt, Matt Stone, and Al Michaels were surprisingly insightful, I thought).

    Carolla is fine on his home turf (traffic, sports, mundane frustrations), but his shtick wears thin. He's also unpleasantly bigoted and sexist.

    I listen to Kornheiser every morning during my commute.

    I really like Slate's sports podcast -- Hang Up and Listen.

    If you are an EPL/Euro soccer fan, Football Weekly is great.

    The others in my rotation are Simmons, Firewall and Iceberg, Freakonomics, Si's soccer and cover story podcasts and Slate's political podcast
