Taking the manager tools podcast out of the mix what are your favorite podcasts to listen to?

David Maister's Series casts are my next favorite. Great stuff similar to all of his excellent books.

Also, cranky middle manager from time to time as he often has great authors and guests on the show. Somewhat humorous sometimes as well...

My list has just been weaned down to the following (some of which are better than others and some of which are not on a regualr release schedule):

Business: Manager Tools, Manager Tools Members Only, Controlling Chaos, Despair, Inc. (it's infrequent and it seems stupid at first but despair.com has a point to make if you can deal with bitter irony and sarcasm), Harvard Business Review Idea Cast, The Economist, The Project Management Podcast, The Project Management Prepcast (a brand new one).

Others: Real Time With Bill Maher, GeekBrief TV, Lost Highway Records, National Geographic Minutes, Nolo Presents The Law in Plain English, The Abbot and Costello Show Podcast (no, really), The Onion Radio News, U.S. Senator Barack Oboma's Podcast

I'm still searching for others that tickle my fancy, as it were. There have been others that have come and gone from the list.

I would add The Welch Way with Jack & Suzy Welch and one that hasn't been mentioned yet called Killer Innovations 'starring' Phil McKinney (very good - on innovation and creativity and how to harness it and get more of it from your team).
