Since the old thread hasn't been updated for a while I thought I would start a new one. If I ever stop updating it just send me a PM :)

Please list the most interesting podcasts you have come across, not only for language learning but also interesting materials in the target language. The URL and a brief description would be very helpful! Links to an individual podcast and telling us why you like it would be a lot more useful than a link to a site with 100 of them.

This got quite large so I'm going to do it in a few posts to give room to edit in new descriptions. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the last thread. Hope this is helpful! I am addicted to Podcasts :)
