Are you a fan of these digital wonders? If so, which one(s)?

I subscribe to:
Friday Night Comedy from BBC Radio 4 -I especially like The News Quiz and Sandi Toksvig's sense of humor.
Star Talk Radio - Neil deGrasse Tyson! and all things astronomy. 'nuff said.
The Nerdist - An interview program that is sometimes excellent. The hosts can get a little to boys-club for me at times but there is such a wide range of interviewees and the format is not the usual Q&A session.
Alan Davies As Yet Untitled - I'm a fan of British comedy in general and listening to a group of interesting and entertaining Brits (mainly) riffing off each other is fascinating.
No Such Thing As A Fish - A very nerdy show from the QI elves. I love it. (Did you know that Pandas poop 40 times a day? Now you do!)
The Infinite Monkey Cage - Another very interesting (and often funny) science program with Brian Cox and Robin Ince.
The Danny Baker Show - BBC Radio 5 Live - Sports-based banter with the brilliant DB. I hate sports but love listening to DB and am eternally grateful he survived cancer unlike many other much-missed others.
Front Row Daily - BBC Radio 4 - Daily arts update
Filmspotting - kempenaar & Larsen WBEZ - Film reviews, analysis and chat from Chicago's finest
The Film Programme - BBC Radio 4 - Slightly uptight but brainy film reviews, sometimes featuring the delicious Kirsty Lang and the fabulous Neil Brand doing music stuff
Radcliffe & Maconie - BBC 6 Music - "Northern" nonsense from the two most charming and funny men alive. Find New Music Here (actually, not here, on their show which can also be listened to afterwards on their website)!
Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo - BBC Radio 5 Live - I only listen to this for Kermode's film reviews - Mayo is an utter tit - one day I'll stop when Mayo's bleating finally crosses an invisible line that I'll recognise when it happens
The Empire Podcast - Empire - Film review chat full of "norn irn" charm and good natured speculation, good interviews, reliable appraisal, fun.
The Word Magazine (archived) - Sadly-missed favourite podcast now regrettably a museum piece; the excellent Mark Ellen and David "Dave" Hepworth talk old man bollocks about rock music. Fantastic.
I find these hugely comforting; I travel between London and Scotland and find listening strangely grounding, also helpful when walking a medium-sized spaniel in horrible weather. Instacast my medium of choice.

I'm a podcast agnostic, but once in a blue moon, I see something that catches my eye (and ear), usually on the Atlantic and New Yorker sites. But I stumbled on a fascinating Beatles-related documentary that brought back some really pleasant memories:
Mare: sticksman1...Hey Terry! Thank you so much for sharing! Thanks to The Fossil Fools and all who helped get the show off the ground with a thoroughly enjoyable performance! I'm excitedly awaiting the release of your set after post winds up!
