Listening Habits

As I've written about a couple of times in the past, I'm hooked on podcasts and there doesn't seem to be any let-up in sight. I burn mp3 CD-RW's and they fuel my 50 minute commute each way to and from work. I probably end up listening to about 3-5 hours of podcasts a week. Right now I'm fairly satisfied with the podcasts I'm subscribed to, but there are a whole whack of them out there. So there are likely quite a few that I would love but just haven't heard of.

I thought I'd share my listening habits with you, and by all means give me your comments and recommendations on shows that you think I might like, but don't currently know about. My interests wax and wane like the moon so some podcasts will arrive on my list and others might depart from time to time. So there's usually always a space for new things.
 
Here's a list of the podcasts that are currently making regular rounds in my car's mp3-cd deck (in alphabetical order):

43 Folders
60 Minutes Podcast
7th Son (Podcast Novel)
Diggnation
Digital Photography Tips from the Top Floor
Floss Weekly (Free, Libre And Open Source Software)
Gillmor Gang
Inside The Net (now called "Net @ Night")
KFI (The Tech Guy)
Linux Reality
Lug Radio (a Linux Podcast from the UK)
Matt's Today in History
The Bitterest Pill
The Digital Story (A Photography Podcast)
The Linux Action Show!
The Linux Link Tech Show
The LottaLinuxLinks Podcast
This Week In Tech
Web Design Podcast from Boagworld

And a few that are in my aggregator's subscription list but are not quite 'regular' releases:

Digital Flotsam
Morning Coffee Notes
RanchoCast
ReelReviewsRadio

Have you got some suggestions? What are *you* listening to?

I too am a podcast junkie. Some of the casts I listen to have a quality that has kept me listening for a long time. Some come for a while and then the signal to noise ratio changes or I change and poof - they are gone. Example - TLLT Show, too much drivel for my tastes. There has been some great stuff on the TLLT Show in the past, maybe I'll try them again.

Here is the list from my aggregator - BashPodder -
