Be sure to check out WFMU's own podcast "Too Much Information."

It's like This American Life without so much smarminess and better stories, better music and... well... somehow great.

I started perusing CBC Radio podcasts based on recommendations in this thread and find Wiretape with Jonathan Goldstein pretty smart and funny.

I like Wire-Tap a lot, thanks for mentioning it.

SuperEgo I can take or leave. for all the praise it gets, it just doesn't do it for me.

I just got into Superego and listened to all of the episodes in just a few days. Shunt McGuppin crushes me.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

I don't know if someone already mentioned it, but the Filmspotting podcast is great for cinefiles. I've been listening for years, and it's just two guys who love film. But it's very well prepared, too. They take their time with the reviews, but they don't waste the listener's time.

I used to listen but I grew tired of it pretty quickly. I like their reviews but the show is just too long for me to listen regularly. I realize it's an actual radio show and needs to be the current length to fill a timeslot, but I'd enjoy it more if they took out the Massacre Theater, listener thank-yous, and upcoming DVDs and just left the reviews and top 5 lists. That would leave a solid 30 or so minutes.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

Just discovered AST Radio thanks to this thread.  It doesn't appear to have been updated in a year and a half, but there are plenty of good ones going back to 2006.

Also:

Democracy Now
Avant-Garde All The Time
Marketplace Money
Creative Screenwriting
The Business
The Treatment
The Cherry Blossom Clinic
Best Show Gems, TBS
The Dusty Show
Downtown Soulville
Mudd Up
Evan "Funk" Davies

When I'm going on long trips, I'll sometimes add selected episodes of:

Fresh Air
Leonard Lopate
Studio 360
On The Media

Often depending who the guests are.
Oh, good heavens. I didnít realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the OíConnor family.

Just keep posting, and someday something magical will appear to you.  When that day comes, but not before then, look up Moonshake's posts and all will be revealed.

Didn't that occur for NJL about 120 post ago?
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Will people discriminate against me if I listen to the Philosophy talk show? I have suffered enough beatdowns because of my math degree as it is.

Just go for it.  You don't have to tell anyone.

What, do you think I can count?  I actually come from a culture with a base 1 numerical system.

Hey Steve, is that even possible?  I don't know what I'm talking about.
