    The Memory Palace is now part of Radiotopia! Which is great for fans like me and some of you because they'll have more episodes. If you're considering of listening to it, listen to the Ferriswheel episode. It was also mention in last week's 99% Invisible episode.

    The episode of This American Life this past week was one of the better ones I'd heard. Check it out if you have the time.

    Yes, as a follow-up to my March post, The Memory Palace is my favorite new podcast. It's easy to fit in to a variable schedule as each episode is only 4-8 minutes.

    Lots of great recommendations here. Too many almost as I'm running out of time to listen to them all. Heck when do you guys find the time to listen to them all? For me it's generally in the car, but I'm not driving a lot these days so finding the free time is getting harder and harder.
    [MENTION=11793]jrue[/MENTION] You've inspired me to check out some live broadcasts. The Welcome to Nightvale live podcast sounded awesome. Trouble is many of them don't make north of the border.

    I recently saw Snap Judgement live in Brooklyn - it was awesome. Can't wait for the next one. Missed the radiolab live just by a week.. Still contemplating on whether I should get tix for Criminal live.. These are the podcast I'm obsessing about although I've listened through radiolab already.

    I also listen to:

    How did this get made
    This is actually happening

    Stuff to consider:
    Strangers
    Storycorp
    The case against Adnan - this shit is tough to listen to. I hate the lawyer talk. It's terrible.

    I am a total podcast junkie. I just had to trim back my rotation since there were more episodes than I had time to listen to each week. Besides the niche Wisconsin sports podcasts these are what are still around...

    Dan Carlin's Hardcore History
    Dan Carlin's Common Sense
    Fw:Thinking
    Stuff You Should Know
    Tech Stuff
    The Bugle (John Oliver's podcast)
    Podcast History of our world
    Startalk Radio
    Guys we F*cked
    How did this get made

    Always looking for a new good one and I've enjoyed Radiolab, TED, and the other how stuff works podcasts in the past, but had to cut those.

    Others:
    Sporadically listen to AoM, Welcome to Night Vale, HBR Ideacast, and Nerdist.
    Recently started to listening to Catholic Stuff You Should Know and Econtalk.

    Econtalk is my all-time favorite. I find Planet Money interesting and quirky for sure, but frustratingly shallow (due in part to the shorter format and in part because the hosts are journalists and not economists).

    I also really enjoy How to do Everything, the various Fangraphs podcasts (baseball and sabermetrics), and the Razzball podcast (fantasy baseball).

    What I would really love to find would be a finance podcast that is neither about personal finance nor cheerleading the stock market. The closest I've found though have been specific Planet Money and Econtalk episodes.

    I'm a huge Planet Money fan. Great way to learn about economics in short little snippets of information.

    Freakonomics is great if you're new to the genre, but Dubner rehashes a lot of his own content. Maybe that's because I've been following them for 10 years.

    Planet Money, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Star Talk Radio are my current favorites.

    Edit: Intelligence Squared, you get a temporary 10 IQ point lift after listening.

    The only podcast I listed to with any regularity is The Tom Woods Show. It's a daily (weekday) podcast. It focuses mostly on politics and economics from a libertarian and Austrian school prospective but occasionally branches into other topics as well.
