Sure, but I don't listen to as many as I used to.

BoardGameGeek is my favorite one of all. It's all about board games, but I just love playing board games and they have extremely interesting guests. Plus the shows are nice and long.

I really enjoy all of the podcasts by Leo Laporte. He has so many podcasts that it's actually hard to keep up with them all, but I try.

Thanks to Lord Janus I now listen to GeeksOn which is pretty funny. They talk about a lot of great geek topics and they're pretty funny. However one word of warning. I just listened to their detailed talk on World of Warcraft and almost had to stop listening to them they knew so little about the game and got so many details wrong, which is really scary considering that one of them had a character in his mid 50s. But overall they are pretty funny.

And ... that's sort of it right now. I used to listen to a few others, but I stopped after a few episodes because they weren't talking about anything new in their episodes.

I also listen to a lot of DVD commentaries where I rip the commentary off my DVDs and listen to them on ipod, so that takes up most of my time (I just finished listening to ALL of the Lord of the Rings commentaries, which is like 40 hours long in total).

What do you guys listen to?

The Dawn & Drew show (sometimes)
This Week in Tech
VideoGameNews Radio
Formula Pod

and 3 WoW podcasts:
Warcraft World
World of Warcast
TaverCast

I also use to listen to a bunch more, but started to remove the ones that I just wasn't listening to anymore. And the problem with the WoW casts is that most of them are from an alliance viewpoint, while I play Horde, so its not always relevant for me, but still interesting. Also they seem to repeat topics, for example, one might discuss the Auction House one week,  then two weeks later another podcast will cover the same/similar topic.
But they all have their pros and cons.

Hey Steve, gotta say it here: my favourite show is yours!
Other podcasts I enjoy (in no significant order):

GeeksOn
The Widget  - like GeeksOn, fun with games, tech and geek stuff
Daily Source Code - news from the podcasting universe
Cinecast - movie reviews etc.
The Real Happy Hour - comedy (absolutely hilarious)
Sam and Jim go to Hollywood - about two guys that leave Minneapolis and go to California to become scriptwriters
Herro Flom Japan - funny and interesting show about life in Tokyo, highlights were a soundseeing tour to the barber's and a visit                            to a noodle restaurant
Coverville - covers of pop and rock songs

They have a hole lot of things wrong but they are still fun.

GeeksOn
(if you count it as a podcast) The Hotspot on GameSpot

PALM: Oh face, come closer. I've needed your touch since I heard that fundamentalist Christians were being stupid again.
FACE: Not again! Quickly Palm, come to me!

far out, where the hell do you find time to listen to all that?

I struggle to keep up with the small number that i listen to. Make sure to let us know when you release your first podcast.
