BkkSci Social, Jan 30, 2013, sparked a lively discussion about podcasts (and other sources of learning). This here thread is set up as a way to capture the various recommendations that poped up during the evening. Please feel free to share your recommendations. Science!

Dan Carlin's Hardcore History - Epic tales of bygone eras presented by Dan Carlin. These shows are long but well worth it. Highly recommended.

WNYC Radiolab - Science-themed stories presented by Jad Abumrad and NPR science correspondant Robert Krulwich. Radio doesn't get much better than this.

99% Invisible - Not a science podcast per se but rather about design and architecture. Roman Mars is the host and he's a fantastic story teller.

from my list:
You probably know the Book already, this podcast talks about the same type of things

Also This American Life

Those are really radio productions made available as podcasts. This one is closer to the original podcast idea and talks about underreported news:

I wasn't there but I am sure this was mentioned as the greatest intelligent radio series of all time:

The science part alone is astonishing...­

I listened to the Laws of Motion podcast just this week.

I've always been a fan of:

Stuff You Should Know: everything from physics to history. Best part is the super amiable and funny hosts Josh and Chuck. http://www.stuffyoush...­

NPR's Planet Money: super interesting topics that deal with everything from global finance markets to pyramid scams to a dude who patents different cuts of meat. Short and always very well done.­

The Nerdist: no technically about science, but always interesting. Usually an interview with a movie or TV star, famous musician or well-known comedian, but the emphasis is always on their inner nerd and pop culture leanings. Bonus - the podcast has expanded to a Nerdist mini-empire, lots of interesting stuff on their website.­

Last but not least, definitely nothing about science, but Doug Loves Movies is my favorite podcast. A game show about movies in front of a live audience with foul-mouthed comedians as guests. Awesome. http://www.douglovesm...­
