"Making Oprah" is a good 4 or 5 episode podcast on NPR that gives a lot of behind the scenes info when the show became huge

Both of those R1 & 2 interest me.
I like listening to old recordings of Desert Island Discs - I'm not sure if they're considered podcasts - but I'll link. They're fascinating. But, being England, many of the people are very dreary.
Now - to find them.

Thanks, R4. I was looking for something that wasn't about politics or current social problems...

Angela Rye has a new podcast. If you watch CNN than you know who Angela is. I will definitely be supporting her. That's my girl.

Another thing I love listening to are old radio shows from the 60s - so great hearing all those great songs being played on the radio in their own time.
This starts with The Monkees >>

I relax with an extended playlist of podcasts on weekends, so here are some favorites:
Nancy (gay themed, from WNYC)
Le Show (Harry Shearer)
Majority Report (Sam Seder)
Sewers of Paris (Matt Baume)
Larry Wilmore - Black on the Air
Understanding Today's Narcissist (Trump era essential!)
Gay USA (Andy Humm, Ann Northrop)
Rachel Maddow (audio)
Star Talk Radio / Star Talk Allstars (Neil Tyson, Eugene Mirman)
On the Media
Ted Talks (audio version)
And while not strictly a podcast, Hearts of Space's deep ambient show is free to stream from their website on Sundays. Intensely relaxing way to recharge ahead of the new week.

Two Dope Queens from NPR have some very excellent comics but the explicit "girl talk" between the hosts quickly goes from being kinda funny to kinda annoying.

Natalie Wood comes across as charming and she had a beautiful speaking voice. Perfect pitch.

I just counted, I'm subscribed to 68 podcasts but only listen to about 10 regularly because of time. When do people usually tune in? On the trail and in my car are really the only times.

Rupaul does have some of the best poscasts. He's surprisingly astute for being a high school dropout.

A must-listen podcast if you're into US politics is Background Briefing, available at IanMasters.com
Four days a week, plus one weekend day, the host has on Washington insiders. I almost always find it incredibly enlightening, because it goes into all the nefarious crap going on in DC that cable news either does not touch or does not go into depth on.
I can't recommend Background Briefing enough and just wish every American would listen to it because then we wouldn't be in the mess we are in.

Finding Richard Simmons is wonderful, even if you don't care an iota about him. Well-done and funny and the narrator has a great voice (I've scrapped so many podcasts simply because the narrator either has an irritating voice or simply doesn't speak well).

I really enjoy the Switched on Pop podcast. The hosts are a musicologist and a composer, and they break down contemporary pop songs musically. Like really geeky music theory stuff like chord progressions and studio techniques, but done in an accessible way. Really fascinating.

How Did This Get Made is wonderful, a show about terrible movies. I also love Gilbert Gottfried's podcast, with interviews with fringe Hollywood figures from the past.

Has anyone listened to the new podcast from the LA Times called Dirty John?
It is well done but so infuriating to listen to. How can that family be so stupid? I bet they all voted for Trump.

True Crime Obsessed hosted by Patrick Hinds and Gillian Pensavalle.
Patrick and Gillian review true crime documentaries and even if you don't like those kind of films, the two of them are hilarious. DL might especially like their review of "Casting JonBenet" a documentary about Colorado actors auditioning for a role in a crime reenactment movie.

Have you tried "Crimewriters On..." R36? Four crimewriters review true crime and mystery releases (TV and podcasts, mostly). Find them very entertaining.
I too like Gilbert Godfried's podcast, and miss his mini-episodes that you can only get by subscription.
For True Crime stuff, I just started the second season of The Accused.

My go tos are: Ru Paul: What's the tee with Michelle Visage

WTF with Marc Maron
Michael Ian Blacks's podcast
I listen when getting ready for work, driving, and to relax when in bed.

After listening to Marc Maron and RuPaul guesting on each other's podcasts, I could easily picture them hooking up or dating casually. They had a lot in common, and you could tell that Marc was very intrigued.

The Final Word Podcast with Frangela
Reid This Reid That with Joy Reid
TLo's Pop Style Opinionfest

Can their not be sort of a makeshift collaborative Datalounge podcast where various random users pick a thread and read the comments?
I would like to spend two hours lying around reading about the Italian American experience in Colorado, but I have a house to clean.

Wait am I missing something? Is there a pay option to get the mini eps? They’re my favorite and I noticed they hadn’t done one in a while. I’m “subscribed” on my iphones podcast app but I don’t pay anything.

What podcasts don't consist of excessive naval gazing or excessive self-talk? I tried listening to an episode of The Heavyweight (by accident, thanks Alexa) and the hosts narration of his own thoughts about some therapist he was interviewing for the story (about a car v. pedestrian accident) were so distracting I had to stop. The TAL approach was kind of novel 10-15 years ago, now it's an old hat. I'm sure it was a nice story, but instead of hearing about the victim finally meeting the driver, I mostly heard about the therapist's aftershave and the producer's treadmill desk. Get to the point, please. Same for podcasts with two hosts, the alpha geek one-uppance wears thin real fast.

For anyone who is a fan of true crime, I have to recommend the parody podcast "Done Disappeared". Hysterical. The episodes are only 10 minutes long, so it's worth it to give it a shot. It definitely mocks programs like "Up and Vanished", etc. but you may see the humor even if you haven't listened to the real stuff.
