Update on my previous post: Alt Text went away. I removed Best of Youtube because I got tired of it. Stopped listening to FootballGuys.com podcasts because I stopped having time for them, and they were the least interesting. Stopped listening to Late Night JengaJam, The Triple Feature, and the Digital Pimpcast because I realized I was no longer interested in them.
I still miss Joe Vs. The World.
At some point I added The BS report into the permanent rotation. Also added You Look Nice Today, a humorous conversation between 3 quick-witted individuals. Added Living Under Marshall Law to the permenant list when it started updating again. Hijinks Ensue continues to be awesome, but I sometimes forget to listen since my podcatcher has some problem with it.

Aw man, if you're talking about Steve Czaban, I might have to come smack you upside your head. If you're talking about anybody else (and you probably are since Czabe would be on from 3-6 AM in your neck of the woods), then we're okay.

*This American Life (usually listen to it) *Wait Wait Don't Tell Me (always listen to it) *The LOST Podcast with Jay and Jack (always listen to it and look forward to it) *All Songs Considered (almost never listen to it) *Real Time with Bill Maher (always watch the show live, no idea why I bother downloading the podcast)

The Steve Dahl show - funny stuff

"The MOTH" has people from various background telling interesting stories about their lives. It's usually 10-15 minutes.
"2 in 1 Showcase" is a great comic book podcast. I haven't listened to any of the newer episodes as I've been making my way through the early ones. They take a character or sometimes a broader concept and talk about it, highlighting certain story arcs. It's been a great way to get recommendations on new stuff to get or to hear enough about something I'm mildly interested in that I don't feel the need to spend money on the book just to 'read' it.
By the way, AWArulz, thanks for mentioning Old Jews Telling Jokes. I have a Jewish grandfather who loved the same kind of jokes. He's been getting a bit of dementia over the last few years, so he doesn't joke around as much. But, the last time I was visiting, I brought my laptop and played a bunch of videos from that site. We all had a blast.

Amending my list to include my holy trifecta of comedy (which are now pretty much the only things I listen to):
COMEDY DEATH RAY: Scott Aukerman and some funny people are funny. Half straight interviews, half character work. (I'm not sure who does Ice T or Jesse Ventura, but they fucking kill every single time.)
DOUG LOVES MOVIES: Stoner icon Doug Benson hosts a few guests, ostensibly to discuss movies although conversation veers all over the place. Then they play games - The Leonard Maltin Game has become my official work timewaster. (I'm pretty good.)
THE NERDIST: Chris Hardwick's podcast - an interview with what has yet to not be an awesome guest - always funny and the show's name is appropriate. (Guests thusfar include: Drew Carey, Jim Gaffigan, Andy Richter, Rob Zombie, OK Go, Stan Lee, Craig Ferguson, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Jon Hamm, Ozzy Osbourne and the Muppets.
The BS Report (sports) This American Life (NPR) RadioLab (NPR) All Songs Considered (NPR) The Moth (NPR) Savage Lovecast (sex-culture advice) The Mike O'Meara Show (comedy) Coverville (music) The A/V Club Hatecast (pop-culture commentary)
"To be the man, you gotta beat demands." -- The Lovely Mrs. Tracker
Science... Sort Of ( http://www.sciencesortof.com ) This is a show hosted by a bunch of grad students that talk about science in (mostly) layman's terms, as well as movie trailers and often comic books. I'm also a science grad student with very similar interests, so the topics and the humor are right up my alley.
FactCheck Radio ( http://www.factcheck.org/radio/ ) This is a short (5-10 minutes) podcasts put out every few days by the website FactCheck.org. If you're familiar with the site, it's usually just a summary of the major points of their most recent articles. I often listen to this and then go to the site to read any of the articles that sounded particularly interesting to me.

I also listen to: -Extra Hot Great, a pop culture podcast with Tara Ariano (co-founder of Television Without Pity), her husband Glark, and their friend Joe Reid of Low Resolution. This is possibly my favorite podcast nowadays. -The Baseball Show with Rany and Joe (because I haven't plugged Joe Sheehan enough lately -The Jonah Keri Podcast (because I have to support any crazy enough to be an Expos fan) -The Pozcast with Joe Posnanski (because I love his writing so much that I might as well listen to him) -The Dan LeBatard Show with Stugotz (because if I can listen to a DAILY TWO HOUR podcast that goes up for a year without removing it from my rotation, then it must be good).

Season 1, Episode 4 of the UK version of "The Office". A simple training seminar goes to shit because of David Brent's incessant need to be the center of attention and the world's foremost authority on everything.
