What podcasts do you listen to?

I currently listen to:

Welcome to Night Vale- a radio broadcast detailing the weird (an understatement) happenings in a town called Night Vale.
Turned Out A Punk- Damian Abraham of Fucked Up talks to people about how they got into punk music.
Live Audio Wrestling- It's pro-wrestling in heaping handfuls.
Rachel and Miles X-plain the X-Men- For the comic book lover who can't keep up with decades of twisted plots.

And I listened to Serial. I work with lawyers all day so it was a joy.
"I'd like to see 1984 redubbed with this in the soundtrack."- Furrypedro.

Ludology - a podcast all about boardgame design (and sometimes other kinds of games). Awesome.
Occasionally, "Lexicon Valley" about linguistic stuff, and BeerSmith about homebrewing.

"Stop Podcasting Yourself" is great.

The "Cracked" podcast is currently my favorite but sometimes I think they're spinning their wheels.

There's one main podcast I listen to, but they haven't put out any new ones since 2011, The Yoda Squirts Podcast; it's kind of disgusting, but kind of funny. Fart sounds, sex jokes, and kooky stories about fictionalized versions of celebrities, all put together in a sickly funny mess. There used to be a podcast (from September-December 2013) called the Awesome Text Adventure Gaming podcast, but it looks like we won't see that anymore. I also like the podcasts on The FuMP site.

Nerdist is good most of the time. They talked to Sir Paul a few weeks back and had Joe Perry recently.

They mentioned Song Fight on the first episode of MC Hawking's Podcore Nerdcast, which I liked. You songfighters may remember that MC Hawking was on a 2003 fight titled What We Need More Of Is Science. Well, MC Hawking interviewed MC Frontalot, and of course they brought up Song Fight since they were both on there. MC Hawking was so out of the loop that he had to ask Frontalot if Song Fight still existed, and Frontalot, who stays in touch, replied, "Yes, and still going strong!" It's nice when we get mentioned in a podcast. That was in 2013; I'm not even sure if that episode is available anymore; it seems like these days, only the latest one is available, so you better get 'em while they're hot, but maybe I scrolled past the archives.

Song Exploder
This American Life
Serial

and yeah seriously MC Hawking, what's the deal? first you hotlink to your way-too-popular site for your entry here (which, incidentally, is why we have anti-hotlink protection now), and now you don't even bother to see if we still exist?

Well, you know what they say about one-time participants; one-hit wonders; they come onto the scene; they disappear. Sometimes they regret doing it! I don't think that was the case, though. But back to podcasts; I remember the Uncyclopedia podcast, which always posted parodies of news articles which, if deciphered intelligently, would be hilarious. I believe the old podcasts are here. Uncyclopedia is still an active website, but their podcast doesn't really seem to be active. Then there are the sexual-themed podcasts; not sure what I'm allowed to talk about here on this site. Yes, I did a thread about sexual movies, but the clips I shared were very edited; these podcasts I speak of are not.
