I like The Indicator and Planet Money.
Jill on Money and The Truth About Money are both good too.

I also like listening to podcasts while I walk each day.

I also listen to Millionaires Unveiled occasionally; each episode is an interview with a millionaire and how they invest, how they got there, etc. It's super interesting and I binge listened at first, but they got a bit repetitive so now I pick and choose those that seem different or unusual.

I used to listen to ChooseFI as well and like it, but they are a bit too frequent/long so I can't keep up.

For financial news/current issues I also like the daily Marketplace podcast with Kai Ryssdal and The Wall Street Journal daily Your Money Briefing (it's like 10 mins).

HBR Women at Work is interesting if women and finance/career issues are something you're interested in. Dave Ramsey podcast never fails to entertain, though I don't tune in often any more as it's the same questions and answers more or less on a loop and I try to branch out and learn something new instead of just feel better about my financial life by listening to the often crazy call in questions/debt horror stories on his show.

I'm somewhat picky because I cannot stand podcasts that interview a person over the phone (phone quality + compressed podcast quality = gross), but I really enjoy:

the Paul Merriman podcast
Sound Retirement Radio
The Dough Roller Money Podcast

Also, you can paste a link/URL to AirRead app on iPhone (there is one similar to that on Android eco system). It will read that web page for you. Especially useful when you driving/walking etc. This app enables us to listen to webpages instead of just looking for Podcasts only.

Also, Audiobooks borrowed on/via your local library app/overDrive.

Looking forward to this one but a word of warning....

There are already a number of Podcasts on iTunes with that name! Make sure it’s the Morningstar version.

If you like Choiceology, "'Financial Decoder" is Schwab's sister podcast that builds on it and is more specifically investment tied. I enjoy it sometimes.

I listen to every episode of the following:
Stacking Benjamins (I've learned when to skip the annoying ads)
Money for the Rest of Us (David's a real thinker, and his episodes are timeless)
Afford Anything (Paula's definitely a BH)
The Retirement Answer Man (as the name implies, very retirement focused)
Doughroller Money Podcast (not many episodes anymore)
Pete the Planner Show (funny guy but well-rounded and realistic)
The Financial Mentor (very few episodes, only a couple last year, but he's another real thinker)

I listen to many episodes of the following:
The White Coat Investor (Jim is a die-hard BH)
Madfientist (some episodes get repetitive, but some are still really good)
Radical Personal Finance (some of his stuff is really radical, but it can be thought provoking and interesting)

And occasionally I'll listen to Money in the Morning.

I got bored with ChooseFI. It mainly seemed to be the same stories over and over with a lot of pep talk about FI.

As you can tell, I listen to a lot. There are other podcasts I enjoy as well, like Lehto's Law, Hardcore History, and History on Fire.

My new favorite podcast is Masters in Business w/ Barry Ritholtz. I just listened for the first time because of guest William Bernstein (Four Pillars of Investing). Over 90 minutes of freewheeling and entertaining intellectual conversation that covered all kinds of topics (economics, history, neurology, ...). I was already impressed with Bernstein, but now also with Ritholtz who kept pace with Bernstein’s infectious intellect. First podcast I ever listened to twice, to pick up the juicy bits I missed the first time (I listen while doing chores).

While I still listen to the Stacking Benjamins podcast, the hosts, a current financial advisor and a former FA, are so pro-advisor that it's really annoying at times. They've had several shows with large segments dedicated to FAs (e.g. how to pick one, how to fire one, how to talk to one). Joe has said 'you need someone (i.e. a FA) in your corner' too many times to count. The rest of their content is usually funny and interesting, even if I often disagree with it (e.g. OG hates target date funds and eschews bonds in every circumstance, Joe is very pro-active fund).

I will give this a try, but some initial poking around on Ritholtz.com “the big picture” has revealed quite a few gross typo and syntax errors which is surprising to me as I believe he is a successful person. That’s not to mention his Thanksgiving day post which will offend many. Maybe the interviews will be valuable though.

MoneyLife w/Chuck Jaffe..... Great content Chuck asks good solid questions and actually lets the guest respond.

The Longview..... As others have stated from MorningStar

Paul Merriman Sound Investing

Masters in Business

Investing Insights..... Another from MorningStar

Bogleheads On Investing

The Knowledge Project.... Farnham Street

Stacking Benjamin’s..... I agree completely with willthrill81 I still listen but past the headline segment its usually a fast forward or a delete.

Bloomberg and some of Barry Ritholtz staff handle the web site and other material. Barry Ritholtz focuses on the interviewing. I'll let him know that the typos are annoying.

He doesn't insert his opinions to his guests in the podcast the way he does on other media.
