Crypto-Gram - a monthly security-themed digest podcast (it is actually an audio version of the identically titled Bruce Schneier's newsletter):
And, of course, "Hardcore History". It's just teriffic, Dan Carlin has a talent in painting live historical pictures using just words.
The host and a panel of professors talk about subjects ranging from ancient history to nuclear physics.
It is good though, but I find subjects I knew something about already were dealt with in a somewhat obscurantist manner that didn't really impart a high level understanding.

Masters of Scale
How I Built This
Only podcast I listen to, the Bodega Boys, to guys from the Bronx that started out as amateur comedians on Twitter and ended up with a TV show: https://www.viceland.com/en_us/video/thursday-august-10-2017...
Film Sack - Film reviews of bad, strange or unique movies. They only do movies that are currently available via streaming sites and encourage their listeners to watch the movie before the episode.
Judge John Hodgeman - Two people, usually a couple, call in to the show with a disagreement. John Hodgeman will listen to both sides and cast his judgement. Both sides agree to abide by whatever he says.
Worth considering, Dave Asprey's Bulletproof Radio > https://blog.bulletproof.com/bulletproof-radio-episodes-dire...
It can be listened like a podcast as each chapter is self contained and 10 mins or so with first hand accounts from actors etc.

Planet Money is well produced and entertaining.
