I like Doug Loves Movies and Sklarbro Country.  They are pretty consistently good. 
HENDERSON!!!!!

Another vote for Sklarbro.

Also, DEFINITELY check out How Did This Get Made.  It's hilarious.

I work alone and unsupervised in a noisy room, so I listen to lots and lots of podcasts. 

For films, I think Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo's film reviews are probably the best listen, though it is incredibly English. 
Old Time Radio is a nice collection of radio dramas and plays (broken up into categories) from the 50s and earlier.
Comedy Death Ray is a great improv/comedy show sprinkled nicely with comedy songs.
If you like John Oliver, he has a podcast called The Bugle which is just as topical and hilarious as anything he's done on the Daily Show.  I think it might even be the thing that got him the job on that show.
Anything on the SModcast network is worth a listen to.
Giantbomb is the best games podcast, though I quite like Joystiq's too.

I just started listening to my first podcast, Dad's Garage Radio. It features Amber Nash (Pam from Archer), Lucky Yates (Dr. Krieger from Archer), and Mike Schatz (Emory from ATHF). Only listened to the two latest episodes but it's been pretty entertaining.

Wait.... wasn't there a podcast thread somewhere else?  Oh well.

I listen to This American Life, The Moth, TED Talks and the SModcast Network (SModcast, Jay & Silent Bob Get Old, and Hollywood Babble-On).  I used to listen to the IFC Podcast, but that's discontinued. Oh! And The Tobolowsky Files. Some of the most heartfelt and entertaining stories I've heard. Stephen Tobolowsky and Kevin Smith are better orators than they are in movies.  Honorable mention: Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me.

And RadioLab is the greatest podcast ever. If you disagree, it's only because you haven't heard it [/snob].  Do yourself a favor, take the risk, and check out an episode (helpful hint: find the hour-long ones; you will wonder why you hadn't heard of it before).

I've got a few I listen to. I love Marc Maron's WTF? and Chris Hardwick's Nerdist, especially. I just seem to like meta discussions of comedy or various nerd things, and these two fill that need almost perfectly.

Another podcast I'm really starting to get into is Earwolf's How Did This Get Made? Long, hilarious discussions about bad movies? Hell to the yes!

And I swear I'm not mentioning this to kiss up to a certain mod: Conor's Citation Needed podcast is hilarious. I never knew how entertaining a skit based around a questionable Wikipedia entry could be. The guests on the show don't hurt, either.

My current list:

The Joe Rogan Experience - Stoner comics in a circle talking about comedy and absolutely everything else you can imagine. Like Joe's standup? You'll like the podcast.

Stuff You Should Know - Two REALLY nerdy guys tackle a new topic every episode and give you the basics on a huge range of topics.

Writing Excuses - Brandon Sanderson, Dan Wells, and Howard Taylor take 15 mins each week to talk about the writing process and often go into editing and publishing tips.

I Should Be Writing - The host is a bit of a downer sometimes, but the interviews are usually great and give you a glimpse into the writing process of people currently being published.

Adventures in Sci-Fi Publishing - See above

The History of Rome - Exactly as the description states. One dude, going through the entire history of the Roman Republic/Empire chronologically.

Dan Carlin -Hardcore History - Only updated every 45 days or so, but the show is well researched and produced. They're currently 5 parts into a 6 part series on the fall of the Roman Republic.

I just found the Joe Rogan one about a month ago so I'm really listening to that one a lot.
Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

RadioLab is okay, but I hate that thing they do where they'll have the interview subject say something, and then Jad immediately say the same thing afterword.  It's so irritating.

Interviewee: "So then when I opened the door, I found"
Jad: "But when he opened the door he found".

I can't remember if it's the same sequence, but they do that ALL THE TIME.

Also, when they do astrophysics shows, I really hate those.

Hey, thanks so much Dim. I'm glad to hear you've been enjoying it.  So far they've been really fun to put together, and have gotten a pretty good response.  Having talented friends never hurts either, in addition to Mike, Kevin, Bill and Sean lending their talents, Paul of Paul and Storm was on the last one and Josh Fruhlinger, The Comics Curmudgeon was on an ep as well.

If anyone else wants to check it out, here's a link to a page with all the eps and a RSS link:  http://citationneeded.tumblr.com/thepodcast

Haha... that is rather excessive when he does that.

After being on Pop My Culture I've really gotten into The Long Shot Podcast.  Though I can't decide if Eddie Pepitone's laughter is enjoyable or incredibly irritating.
