If you like This American Life then you'll probably like The Moth - it's described as "real stories, told live on stage, without notes". A bunch of Moth recordings have actually been featured on This American Life in the past.
I also like Dan Savage's podcast- The Savage Lovecast I think it's called. If you like him & his columns/books then you'll like the podcast.
I'm a huge movie nerd so there's a film review podcast I like called Filmspotting.
Plus I listen to a few other NPR podcasts like On Point, Talk of the Nation, and Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me.
That's all I've got for now but thanks for posting this thread... I'm always interested in new podcast recommendations!
