The Adam Carolla Podcast is the best one I've listened to, Adam is one of my favorite people and a true Angelino.
The Beatles know Jesus Christ has returned to Earth and is in Los Angeles.

So I'm only just getting into listening to podcasts recently. Here are some that I think are particularly good...

This American Life
I'm probably the last person in the world to get on this bandwagon, but this show is pretty much the best thing ever, right? The amount of effort that goes into each show, the level of interest they manage to get out of even the most unpromising subject - this is a unique and infectious approach to journalism/real-life reporting. http://www.thisamericanlife.org/podcast

The Moth
A show featuring true-life stories told live in front of an audience, some of which get used on This American Life. The quality varies depending on the speaker, but more often than not they'll be really fascinating. http://www.themoth.org/podcast

The Bugle
A satirical comedy show riffing on the week's news, hosted by John Oliver from The Daily Show and his old writing partner Andy Zaltzman. Apart from anything I love the relationship and ridiculous banter between these guys. http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-bugle-audio-newspaper/id265799883

Savage Love
A sex and relationship advice show from Dan Savage, who has really great, often eye-opening, opinions on sexuality and the politics of romance. http://podcasts.thestranger.com/savagelove/

The Sound of Young America
A show featuring interviews with good guests (e.g.: Bob Odenkirk, Steve Albini, Louis C.K, The Hold Steady) being asked better questions than usual. http://www.maximumfun.org/tags/podcast
"Should I bring my own chains?"
"We always do..."

I absolutely love this show. I was listening to it on the radio last night while drivin around and I went from laughing hysterically to the brink of tears for an hour. Great show.

Intermixed with great music, sometimes darkly comical and always full of cutting edge information from all sorts of fields of science, psychology and other heady material, is this amazing program:

That cover is hilarious.

What are some good film podcasts? I mean real film podcasts. Stuff that talks about festivals and what's premiering and who's working on what. Nothing fanboyish. Sound on Sight is aight, but a bit pretentious. Any suggestions?

Don't know about real film podcasts but I enjoy listening to Hollywood Babble On feat Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman. If you hit Smodcast at iTunes there's a vast selection of podcasts feat Kevin Smith. There's also the recent podcasts pimping his next movie Red State which actually sounds interesting for a change. :yabbse-smiley:

There's a podcast for each episode which is posted the day after the episode airs so no not spoilery at all. The discussions are often very technical, i.e. how the hell did we pull off that crazy time lapse shot on such a shoe-string budget, which is cool to a degree but I like it better when they focus on story and the goings on in the writer's room. It's definitely fun to listen to when you're still reeling from last night's episode and desperate for inside scoop.

Yay, now we can all over-discuss the episodes and the podcasts for said episodes.  :yabbse-grin:

Very nice. I'm in.

And yes... this post was mostly just an excuse to link this extremely important information from the previous page:

Anyone who is remotely interested in podcasts needs to try this one:

Pop Culture Happy Hour

It has been my favoritest podcast for quite a while. To get an idea of what this podcast is like at its best, listen to this episode.

Listened to an episode of Breaking Bad Insider. It's superb.

Now I have a lot of catching up to do...

Dang it... I moved this to Idle Chatter, and someone must have moved it back.

This doesn't belong in Real-Life Soundtracks, because podcasts are not music.

Whichever admin moved this there, yeah, we're gonna have to take this out back.
