I had a request for podcast recommendations (This is just a list, not reviews).
So here are the ones that I listen to:

John Safran and Fr Bob Maguire talk race and religion with guests, also featuring amusing talk-break intervals. *This is no longer in production.

Stephen Dubner and Steve Levitt explore ‘the hidden side of everything’.
Headed up by Ira Glass, this podcast is split into 3 acts that each explore the weekly theme from a different creative angle.

A panel review pop culture movies, tv shows etc each week. Each episode is finished off with ‘what’s making us happy this week’ – where recommendations for apps, music, movies etc are given.
(Disclosure: this is my podcast) Conversations with different Christians about their life journey, what they believe and why.
Interviews with interesting people as well as some advice (not that I subscribe to all of it) around success and self improvement.
Interviews with interesting people from different spheres, from authors, to scientists, to actors and more.
Actually really uplifting and inspiring, as well as informative. Stories and interviews from persecuted Christians around the word.
