Most Intellectually Simulating Podcasts

Some might rightly say that “best” and “podcasts” in the same two-word sentence is a contradiction in terms, let alone calling any of ’em intellectually stimulating, but let’s soldier on. While I still have a total of maybe 30 songs on my iPod/iPhone, I have become a fairly regular listener to a few podcasts, like Fresh Air, Science Friday, On the Media, Material World, The Economist, In Our Time, etc.

There is a nice Metafilter discussion here of the subject, with oodles of listening ideas.
