Maybe you can help me flist!  I recently realized that I could get radio streamed to my Blackberry that isn't Pandora (shhhh, I am slow) so I've been listening to NPR and other news/progressive/political stations at work via Stitcher radio.  I was using TuneIn which I liked better, but it stopped working midway through my shift Wednesday for some reason and so I found Stitcher, which is also quite nice and actually quite a bit better in terms of how much they offer (the interface is just annoying to me).  

So I've been able to listen to the Rachel Maddow show the next day and NPR's various programs, but I'm looking for other stuff too, mostly because the Marketplace guy on NPR gives me a weird vibe (I am discriminating on his voice, woe).  Suggestions?  Podcasts?  Places to download said podcasts?  Anything you listen to on the radio, via Stitcher or anything else?  Anything else that you can think of that might occupy my ears during my mostly ten hour shifts at work every day?

I haven't started listening to it actively, but there's a podcast my professor has been playing periodically for my Cultural Creation of Identity class called Radio Lab. It's pretty tight and discusses a lot of really interesting topics. One of them was about cities and population science, and how the beats-per-minute of people walking was related to a city's population, median income, etc. The other was about race and DNA.

So yeah, you might check that out if you haven't already. ^^
