Here are some of my favorite podcasts.
I’ve been on quite a podcast kick recently, just striving to absorb information. I am subscribing to more podcasts every week with little hope to keep up, much less listen to past episodes. The best began to quickly surface for me.

Stories about the other 99% of things designed that go un-notice and exploring their back-story.

NPR: Stuff You Should Know(No longer recommended)

They talk very slow and information density is low I certainly recommend speeding them up. Topics tend to very from simple to things you’ve never stop to think about. Good for passive listening.
