I'll admit, i'm an NPR junkie.  They have a push this month to get people to promote their podcasts, so i'm going to do that here.  In no particular order, here are some of the podcasts I listen to:

Wait Wait Dont' Tell Me
  Basically the weekly show in podcast form

Ask me Another
     Basically the weekly show in podcast form

TED Radio Hour
     Clips of TED talks, usually a few minutes of 3-4 per episode, all on a common theme, like "networks" or "The five senses"

Marketplace Morning Report
      a ten minute report on economics, the stock market (primarily U.S.) and politics related to business

NPR Politics Podcast
      a weekly discussion of recent events, with the occasion bonus episode when big news breaks

Planet Money
      Interesting stories on money, the market, and economics. Last episode I heard was an economist gives advice on love and dating (it was REALLY interesting)

Make Me Smart
      two people from NPR's Marketplace dive a little deeper into some of the week's political, economic, or tech industry stories

The Way I heard it with Mike Rowe
      Very much like the old Paul Harvey "The Rest of the Story"

Hidden Brain
      Shankar Vedantam stories about how the mind works, and how we THINK it works may not be correct

FiveThirtyEight Politics
      Another group of folk talk about the weeks political stories

How I built this
      Discussion with various company's founders, and basically, how they created these massive companies (Kate Spade, Sam Adams brewery, Lyft)

What do you listen to?

The Documentary from the BBC. It's really just  their documentary radio programs remixed as MP3. They cover topics from all over the place.

In out time, BBC podcast about history.
Pat Condell's blogs. And more stuff in that direction.
Korean language lessons and not really a podcast but vocabulary downloaded from Forvo.com, a sort of pronunciation dictionary. Focusing on Korean and English.
