Hey, yet another idea to post something when I'm out of ideas (OCD "served")

As I've blogged about before I go out and walk for about two hours every morning and then aim for another hour sometime during the day.

I generally do not listen to music, but rather use the iPhone the way it was an iPod and listen to podcasts.

What do I listen to?

Well, thank you for letting me pretend you are asking.

Generally comedy and history podcasts.

Some of you may listen to these, or possibly know of others in a similar vein you may know of that I don't.

I am open to suggestions.

Sklarbro Country/County
Doug Loves pot Movies
The Nerdist
You Made it Weird
The JV Club
The Bugle 
Comedy Bang Bang
Girl on Guy
The Dead Authors Podcast

Dan Carlin's Hardcore History
The History of Byzantium
In Our Time
Stuff You Missed in History Class

Star Talk w/Neil DeGrasse Tyson

History of England - great
When Diplomacy Fails - fair
History of Hannibal - good
History according to Bob - many short segments with five themes

and.. the Thomas Jefferson Hour.

I like the Pod F. Thomkast and NPR stuff (Radiolab, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, and--yes I admit it--the podcast of the monologues from Prairie Home Companion.)

Best of the Left (Aggregator of progressive leaning shows)
The David Pakman Show
History Extra (Brit history with lots of authors and professors)
WNYC Leonard Lopate (exceptional interviews)
Studio 360 (pop culture)
WTF (Marc Maron does interviews of comedians, rockers, etc.)

Audio books are the best - start with David Mitchell - Cloud Atlas, The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, and Black Swan Green are all fantastic.

Neil Gaiman reads his own book Stardust (nothing at all like the exceptionally mediocre film), and his books Anasi Boys and American Gods are wonderful.

If you enjoy more serious SF, everything by Richard K. Morgan is brilliant (I actually had to pull over to the side of the road because I was crying while listening to a particularly heavy passage in "Thirteen"), and nearly all of Alastair Reynolds incredible work is also out in audio. (Your local library should have these)
If you like SF then

Oh oh I forgot Charles Frazier, who reads his first book, "Cold Mountain". His second book, "Thirteen Moons" is also a fantastic book, and I enjoyed "Nightwoods" as well.
