Also, a shameless plug: I've been interviewing developers ranging from Mark Shuttleworth of Canonical to Frederico Knabben of CKEditor. I want to learn from experience. How'd they start their businesses and what knowledge have they accumulated over time? So far, I've racked up 10 interviews. Highlights include:
- Mark Shuttleworth, Canonical
- Mitchell Hashimoto, HashiCorp
- Jeff Haynie, Appcelerator
- John O’Nolan, Ghost
Here's the latest show: http://www.binpress.com/blog/2014/09/09/binpress-podcast-epi...
+1 For No Agenda. The best podcast in the universe!
- Rich Roll Podcast (Lots of life inspiration & healthy eating advice)
- Tim Ferriss Podcast (Interesting random people and perspectives)
- An occasional episode of Joe Rogan Experience. I don't find Joe all that highly-intelligent, but I find his views, questions, and interviews interesting and thought-provoking.
- The Nerdist (Good, informal interviews)
- Trail Runner Nation
- Zencast (Everything by Gil Fronsdal)
I don't really listen to any tech podcasts anymore. I'll catch ATP on occasion, but for me they're all a bit of a waste of time, immersed in minutiae. I can catch all of the important bits I want with a 5 minute glance at my Twitter stream, or Techmeme or The Verge or wherever.
I also don't listen to every episode of the above podcasts. The only time I have for podcasts is during commuting and I take frequent breaks from any podcasts/music as a form of commuting meditation, left alone with my thoughts. That happens at least one day a week, and I've gone as long as 3 weeks of commuting in silence, with nothing playing.
I like Tim's style, very insightful and I think he gets some great guests.

Entrepreneurship: Stanford's Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders lecture series
"Every two weeks Bad Voltage delivers an amusing take on technology, Open Source, politics, music, and anything else we think is interesting, as well as interviews and reviews. The show is presented by Jono Bacon, Jeremy Garcia, Stuart Langridge, and Bryan Lunduke."
* Security Now: http://twit.tv/sn
Something you can listen while jogging or cycling, when reading is practically not an option.
- Forever Jobless
- Mad Marketing with Marcus Sheridan
- Smart Passive Income with Pat Flynn
- Empire Flippers
- The Nathan Berry Show
- Kalzemus Podcast (like twice a year there is a new ep.)
Those are the ones I haven't got tired of yet.
I used to like Startups For The Rest Of Us and The Foolish Adventure, but I sort of grew out of both of those as they got repetitive or I started to dislike the hosts (familiarity breeds contempt).
Rich Roll Podcast - Cool if you're into endurance sports, health, spirituality in a general sense.
MTNmeister - Outdoor related podcast (backpacking, climbing, etc.)
Enormocast - Rock climbing podcast, interview style.
BS Report with Bill Simmons - Sports focused.
Debug - Tech related.
DLC - Gaming related (video and tabletop)
* All Songs Considered: http://www.npr.org/blogs/allsongs/ - another good music podcast
This is a series about what happens when someone who knows nothing about business starts one. It's called StartUp.
I use node regularly for side projects and this podcast is both educational in Node's history and use, as well as inspirational.
Radio Lab (science) -- http://www.radiolab.org/
THE science show to listen to. If you're going to listen to anything from this list, this is the show to listen to. It's very well produced and always interesting. Their most controversial show was Yellow Rain (http://www.radiolab.org/story/239549-yellow-rain/).
Freakonomics (science/economics) -- http://freakonomics.com/
I often consider this show to be Radio Lab's counterpart. Their headline is "exploring the hidden side of everything". Every single episode is fascinating (here is the show "Cobra Effect" to get you started: http://freakonomics.com/2012/10/11/the-cobra-effect-a-new-fr...). The shows all lean toward a very economist-like way of looking at things, so unless you're in the field, you'll enjoy much of the insights that come about because of this.
Planet Money (economics) -- http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/
Just a well-produced podcast about money and its long-reaching tendrils. Shows usually focus on interesting stories about money/finance that are in the "background" and go otherwise unnoticed by the population at large.
TED Radio Hour (everything) -- http://www.npr.org/programs/ted-radio-hour/
Basically a radio version of TED talks. However! It's very well produced and every show is basically made for radio. It's not just TED talks with the video part stripped out.
This American Life (everything) -- http://www.thisamericanlife.org/
The most downloaded podcast for a reason.
The Irrelevant Show (comedy) -- http://www.cbc.ca/irrelevantshow/
Fantastic comedy sketch group from Canada. Their most famous cast member is probably Mark Meer (Shepard's voice actor in the Mass Effect games). While some of their sketches can fall flat, more often than not they make me smile. Their humour has a very Canadian slant, so unless you're living in Canada, sketches about, say, Canadian law and politics, might be a little more difficult to decipher. :)
Wait Wait Don't Tell Me (comedy) -- http://www.npr.org/programs/wait-wait-dont-tell-me/
The only show that actually manages to consistently make me laugh out loud in public. It's a news trivia show with a panel of well-established comedians and writers that participate in the game. Highly recommended.
Honourable mentions include:
To the Best of Our Knowledge -- http://www.ttbook.org/
Snap Judgement -- http://snapjudgment.org/
Intelligence Squared -- http://www.intelligencesquared.com/
Science Friday -- http://www.sciencefriday.com/
Ask Me Another -- http://www.npr.org/programs/ask-me-another/
Give it three episodes because you'll hate it after one.
Great Lives - 20 minute biographies of famous dead people
Those two alone are more than sufficient to fill your time and fill your brain.
