Freakonomics
Criminal (a little uneven, but has some interesting, obscure stories)
Death, Sex & Money
Fresh Air
Strangers
Question of the Day

Plus a bunch of other more sports or hobby-specific ones. The amount of truly excellent free content available is nothing short of amazing.

I read a daily paper but other than that I get most of my news from outside the US. That includes BBC Documentaries, BBC Business Daily, Tagesschau.de (daily video news in German) and france3.fr news in French, also video.

Also love In Our Time in BBC, in which Melvin Bragg and 3 academic experts discuss a subject in depth- anything from Plate Tectonics, Aggrippina the Younger, Fermat's Last Theorem to St. Thomas Aquinas.

I like UBS's morning podcast (plus their weekly one in French) for investment topics, as well as Cramer's Mad Money.

Oh, yeah- add Planet Money and Freakonomics. I listen to podcasts while working out, weeding, mowing the lawn, doing household chores and when I'm driving alone- so I go through a lot of them.

My favorites are:

The Thomas Jefferson Hour: Portrayal of TJ by a Jefferson scholar concerning historical issues and current issues of the day viewed through the eyes of TJ.

The Bowery Boys: Discussion of various New York City historical topics.

History Extra Podcast - From the English BBC regarding various historical issues usually European in nature but not always.

Although I understand only half of the discussion TWIV - This Week in Virology, scientists who know their stuff and have a sense of humor. Download #373 for an interesting discussion of the polio vaccine backstory.

Many of the aforementioned are also on my list.

I'm a latecomer to NPR, began listening just a couple of years ago it when my brother and SiL invited me to go see a taping of "Wait Wait". I have to admit I'm hooked, NPR now accounts for more than 3/4 of my radio time and all my podcast subscriptions but one.
