I currently have a big commute to work so podcasts have become my life saver on the journeys to and from work, a few that I religiously listen too are....
Talking Comics The IGN family of podcasts ( Keepin it Reel, Channel surfing, IGN. UK) Nerd of mouth Answer me this (UK fact based podcast) 'No such thing as a fish' podcast (and if you listen to this podcast you'll learn that this is an actual fact - great for silly trivia)
Comic Tango/Echo Rift Talking Comics Comic Geek Speak Word Balloon Two-Headed Nerd Comicvine Pop Culture Hounding 11 O Clock Comics War Rocket Ajax Fantastic Fourcast Fantasticast Rachel and Miles Read the X-Men More to Come (Comics Beat/Publishers Weekly comics podcast)
I like podcasts. I sit at a desk all day.
and my podcast, Saturday Morning Comics! We've been retooling it to try to be a bit shorter, quicker and fun. We also try to stay positive (at least I do!).

I have a long commute, so i listen to a lot. Looking forward to trying some of these new ones that I have not heard about before.
So I will list them by how I listen.
Tune in for every episode: Talking Comics - though I have not listened to a ton of the back catalog because i am trying to catch up on a lot of titles. Talking Games Rooster Teeth Podcast and Patch Flophouse Podcast - genius bad movie podcast. One of the hosts, Elliott Kalan is going to be writing Spiderman and the X-Men. How did this get made? Joystiq IGN - Podcast Beyond, Podcast Unlocked, and Scoop DLC - Jeff Cannata and Christian Spicer formerly of Weekend Confirmed Garnett on Games - Garnett Lee also formerly of Weekend Confirmed, though I think this one is defunct We Have Concerns - Jeff Cannata and Anthony Carbone. Fun, clever, and well worth a listen. Isometric - a unique perspective on games - some smart dev and journalist types talking about the games business. Comics Assembled - insider look at the comics industry from a creator. Gamer Tag Radio - great group of gamers who have fun, and manage to get some amazing interviews.
Defunct Weekend Confirmed - excellent gaming news and conversation Irrational Podcast - from Irrational games, talk about dev process for Bioshock Infinite and some very interesting interviews.
Pick and choose based on topic: Comic Geek Speak - I never miss the spotlights, but I am not much for the preview episodes Nerdist Chewin' it with Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan Gamers with Jobs - more PC focused, but great discussion on games and game industry Pointless - Kevin Pereira from G4 Playstation blogcast Major Nelson Radio Spawn On Me - indy podcast about gaming, some music. Adds some diversity into the gaming conversation. Giant Bomb Indoor Kids
You show me a calendar that says "In July" and I'll make cheese for you.

I just learned about The Worst Idea in the World podcast after it was mentioned on the latest How Did This Get Made? minisode. Basically, two New Zealand comedians are watching the Adam Sandler movie Grownups 2 every week for a year and podcasting about it. I've just started the podcast but already their slow descent into madness, including developing elaborate conspiracy theories about the movie's production, is delightful, and has been one of the few things to make me smile lately during a very bad spell.
I second many others that have been mentioned: Talking Comics and Missfits Nerdist Nerdist Writers Panel (especially when they do comics writers) Rachel and Miles X-Plain the X-Men Fatman on Batman The Bugle Star Talk
I'm not sure if I saw these mentioned, but would recommend them:
1) Batgirl to Oracle (reviews on Batgirl, Birds of Prey comics; classic and new ones) 2) 3 Chicks Review Comics (Sue from DC Kicking Ass and Kelly Thompson from CBR) 3) Women of Marvel Podcast (this is pretty new) 4) Out of the Fridge (usually two women and one guy from a comic shop in WA) 5) Fan Bros "the voice of the urban geek" 6) Double Page Spread, similar to fan bros 7) Mission Log: reviews every episode of Star Trek, in order, complete with trivia because they have access to Roddenberry's papers. TOS and TAS are complete and so are the first 6 movies; they're now on Next Gen. 8) Thrilling Adventure Hour--performances in the style of an old time radio show.

It's not really a podcast, but "Dark Adventure Radio Theater" does really impressive adaptations of HP Lovecraft stories. Each adaption is done in the style of radio at the time the story came out. You have to pay for the CD or mp3 file, but each comes with a lot of goodies. These have helped me get through some long car trips and commutes. Website is: cthulhulives.org/radio/DART/index.html
11 O'Clock Comics is my favourite - I've been with it since the beginning and my bookshelves groan with their recommendations. Great balance between the mainstream and the left field. The Orbiting Pod is a comics podcast put out by the guys from Orbital comics in London. It's pretty good on the whole - sometimes I think they enjoy their sense of humour more than the listeners.

Anybody listening to Let's Talk Comics? Every Monday, Jim Viscardi has a discussion with a comics editor/colourist/letterer/writer/penciller etc, talking about how they got into the business. They're super informative and just plain fun to listen to. Did you know that Scott Snyder was scouted by 2 editors (one from Marvel and the other from DC) who were on a date? Did you know Fiona Staples was hooked on Top Cow comics when she was growing up? Every creator has a different story and it's wonderful to hear each and every one of them.

I probably listen to a bit too many podcasts, as I keep having to delete some from my laptop, just so that the amount of space I have left on the computer doesn't reach dangerous levels. Anyway, here are the podcasts I listen to:
The Orbiting Pod - comics podcast by the shop Orbital Comics in London;
One of Us- not a podcast but a network of geek podcasts, with podcasts about all aspects of geek culture including sports (?!), board games, film, general geekery (The Original Gentleman podcast), life in Japan, geekery in the UK and others. They also have columns on things like animation, The Simpsons, movie make-up, Freudian analyses of popular television and more. Additionally, coming soon on One of Us is a geek podcast based in Hong Kong.
Double Toasted- again not a single podcast but a website full of podcasts (a very new website). This one mainly deals in humorous film reviews, film news and trailers etc. But they also talk about anything else, from video games, music, and pop culture to absolutely anything. One of the guys behind the website, Korey Coleman, was the creator of the website Spill.com, but once Hollywood.com decided to drop Spill, Coleman and one of his cohosts from Spill, Martin Thomas, went on to make Double Toasted. Other Spill alumni went on to make Rage Select and One of Us.
Rage Select - vidya games and other important matters such as the ultimate sandwich filling and how many millions of dollars it would take for an arachnophobe to get into a bath full of spiders.
BBC's History Hour BBC's Documentaries Africa Today BBC's From Our Own Correspondent Dan Carlin's Common Sense Dan Carlin's Hardcore History Slate's Political Gabfest The Podcast History of Our World The British History Podcast Junkfood Cinema Welcome to Night Vale (started listening after Rage Select/Hacking the System extraordinaire Jason Murphy recommended it) The Comics Alternative Radio Dispatch BBC's History Extra Need to Consume's 3 Bods 1 Pod
I may have missed out one or two but yeah, as I said, I should probably cut down on the amount of podcasts I listen to.
1) Batgirl to Oracle (reviews on Batgirl, Birds of Prey comics; classic and new ones)
Forgot to mention it, but that's a great podcast! Even though i haven't read much of Barbara Gordon(just getting into Batgirl Year One)i think she's a very interesting character, especially as Oracle.I think this podcast does a good job on educating people on the character.
I especially loved the Killing Joke episodes that featured a great interview with John Ostrander, the writer who came up with Oracle.
