I've been using the new(ish) NPR One app to catch some stuff that I usually had to dial up on podcasts, including Freakonomics. It is quite convenient.
But I do like listening to Behavior Gap on podcast, and also the occasional Longest Shortest podcast.
I read Five Thirty Eight on Flipboard--thanks for the tip that they have a podcast as well.

I'm a huge podcast fan - and I've got a bunch more to try out based on the responses here.

My current favorites:
Left, Right, and Center
FiveThirtyEight Elections
NPR Politics Podcast
Intelligence Squared US Debates
The Torch; The Great Courses Podcast
and I've just started to listen to Stacking Benjamins

A couple that I used to listen to frequently but don't anymore (but would still recommend)
Wait Wait Don't Tell Me
Planet Money

I didn't expect a twit head here, but since many of us are tech folks...

I only listen to Security Now on twit lately, and not every one any more now that I don't commute.

I like science Friday, freakonomics and NPR tech. Hidden brain gets the heave ho sometimes, but still on the list.

I never listen to news, so wait wait would wait forever for guys like me, lol!

Curious as to when you all listen to these podcasts. I used to listen on my half-hour to and from work. Once the commute ended, so did my listening. (Also, since I pulled the trigger I've been less interested in the personal finance ones.)

I'm new to podcasts. The only one I've listened to is:

The History of Rome (recorded in 2008-2012)

and it has been very entertaining and educational. I'm on about episode 130 out of about 180. I listen on the commute home from work for the most part (not driving).

I rarely just listen to a podcast. I usually listen while doing something that doesn't take my full focus.

For me that's when I'm mowing the lawn or at the Y exercising or taking a walk. If I'm going on a long drive I'll try to make sure there is one or two in the queue. Need to be picky though so that DW isn't bored with it if she's along.

I save them up and I listen to them when I'm driving out of good radio reception and also when I'm camping.

When I'm taking a long road trip somewhere or when I'm walking/running on the treadmill. Really passes the time.

Same here- during workouts, when I'm in the car by myself and also when I'm cleaning the house. I even mow the lawn with podcasts through my Bose headphones.

I listen to them when I'm playing video games, surfing the internet, working out at the gym, doing crossword puzzles, cooking dinner, doing chores, and so on.


I don't listen to the personal finance ones as much any more, either.

Any of the NPR podcasts
A few hobby-related ones
TED Radio Hour
Serial
Stuff You Should Know
Stuff You Missed In History Class

And I don't use it often, but Sleep With Me is really great if you need something to help you drift off to sleep.
