Thanks to everyone for the great suggestions. Since I originally posted the question, I have been hooked on…

The Atheist Experience
The Non Prophets
The Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe
A Christian and an Atheist

Also, Evolution 101 is pretty good. And if I want to get really depressed - Democracy Now! .

Podcasts

A local NPR station has a podcast series
http://www.scpr.org/programs/perspectives/lohscience.html
The Loh Down On Science.
Short interesting stories about science told in a humorous way.
There are about a million science podcasts listed on iTunes. That’s good, I think. None of them are as good as Point of Inquiry!

I can’t believe no one’s mentioned many of my favorites:

Infidel Guy
Bible Geek
Evolution 101
Atheist Voices
Other programs on Freethoughtmedia.com

.. they’re one of the reasons why I’m here today. Especially IG.

Good lists.  I’m a big fan of the Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe.  Skepticality just uploaded a “return” episode.

My wife and I have sort of a family/skeptical podcast called Will and Iris.  We talked about atheism and Christianity on the latest one.

I had not realized so many podcasts were available. I usually get mine from Podcastalley, but didn’t know about many of these.

From some of the lists people provided, I downloaded a couple of episodes from each of the following: Skeptics Guide to the Universe, Atheist Experience, and Non-Prophets.

I’ve only had time to listen to Skeptics Guide, but was really impressed. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and have added that one to my “must listen to each week” list. Now, if only I could find more time, which is another issue entirely.
