    Matt Slick's podcast is great. It was from that that I first learned of the Doctrines of Grace and verses supporting eternal security.

    Recently I've been listening to The Comfort Zone with Ray Comfort. It's the audio version of his web show which is broadcast live on The Comfort Zone Live and can be watched later on YouTube. They deal with current events and also answer questions that people send in.

    Also worth a look is Wretched Radio by Todd Friel. You can get a short segment (around 15 min) for free, but the full 2 hour show (which is streamed live for free) costs $5.95 per month to get the podcasts.

    I also thoroughly enjoy listening to Dr. Strange and Rev. Buchanan.

    Would heartily second In Our Times, with Melvyn Bragg. The range of subjects dealt
    with is enormous, very informative, erudite panelists , controversial on occasions,
    and really exercises the mind.

    Zack I couldn't agree more, I used to say 8 years ago only listen to 'big names', more recently I literally never listen to such, I listen to men of my own denomination, men I have met, and really I have found them every bit as edifying, and often more so than the big names. One of the reasons I stopped listening to some of the big names at conferences etc. was because so often you got rehashed stuff, or similiar stuff whereas the 'ordinary' man in the pulpit expounds the text, week-in and week-out. Plus I just grew to dislike intensely the celebrity status some of these men were given (even where they had no such desire).

    Andrew,

    I used to listen to lots of podcasts but got a bit bogged down after a while. However, one podcast I have never grown tired of is EconTalk, I've even gone back and listened to all the past archives. Russ Roberts is an economist that has libertarian leanings but has interviews with all sorts of people, from hairdressers to baseball players to politicians to dietitians, I've never come away from an episode without learning something. His interview styles is very non-confrontational (he's there to learn from the person, not debate them) and he asks really, really good questions. Really cannot recommend the podcast highly enough and it's broadened my views considerably. I learn that things are a lot more nuanced and difficult to define than we often think they are.

    Here's a good sample episode, though the entirety of the podcast can be found on iTunes
    Munger on Price Gouging | EconTalk | Library of Economics and Liberty
