Security Now and FLOSS weekly are both part of Leo Laporte's network and are excellent. I have enjoyed NPR's Planet Money podcast that has been trying to explain some of the goings on with the economy since August last year.

The TED talks are also very interesting.

Thanks for the tips! I'm trying out all four with the expectation that I'll get through them faster while exercising.
