Just found a very entertaining podcast: The Conspirators

The Conspirators is a weekly podcast about strange true tales from history. Each episode examines a different dark story about unexplained mysteries, conspiracies, tragic events and strange places, and they’re all true.

Perfect material for Halloween :)

Econtalk, depending on the subject discussed -- it's not all economics, because the host has broad interests. Economics, food, technology, science, politics, health, they've all come up.

Skeptic's Guide, again depending on the subjects discussed. I used to listen to them all the way through, but these days my time is limited so I'll listen to the parts of it which catch my eye, whether it's the interview or one of the news topics. Science, skepticism, some tech.

Nvidia's AI podcast, depending on how approachable the subject sounds. They can get well over my head. Focuses on AI/machine learning/deep learning and its potential.

Tom Woods podcast...probably the most regular. History, politics, and economics.

Wired.co.uk podcast depending on the subject. General/pop tech .

ScottHorton -- depends on the guest/subject. Foreign policy analysis.
