Two of my favorite podcasts are also both webcasts on EdTechTalk. They are:

EdTechTalk is a great place to find other educational podcasts, and since they are "webcasts" if your schedule permits you can tune in "live" and participate in these shows in the live chat / backchannel they use on EdTechTalk.

I definitely have had some of my best "professional development moments" from the past year thanks to Seedlings in particular.

I also recommend the podcast channels for the K-12 Online Conference:
Yours is a favorite... Am I missing the new stuff? When is the new video coming?
Recenty had HD melt down, I lost nearly everything. I'm rebuilding. : (
It's not strictly considered educational, but my favorite podcast is The Splendid Table (found it on iTunes). Great cooking show, but more than recipes and reviews. They spend a lot of time using the sounds of locations to bring you in to the scene. Sounds from marketplaces, kitchens, etc. Well-chosen music interludes. Care taken to make the sound quality the best they can, even when the interview takes place over a phone connection, etc.
Maybe not truly a podcast, but can be saved as a podcast: Ted Talks. I find each of them utterly fascinating. These creative and knowledgeable people keep my curiousity and wonder alive. I also use them with my gifted students for cutting edge topics, and as role models of people making a difference out in the real world.
Cindy: I agree...

I've only seen a half dozen of these but they are absolutely among the best stuff on the web!

Hands down it is TWIT!! Not to mention Net@Night on the same network.

I learn more here than anywhere else...

Leo is the Godfather of podcasting...
We have been offering some training in Texas to our science/math education community with the hope that our folks that are attending face to face professional development would capture some of the content for sharing across the state. We provides some basic training with Garageband, iMovie, and audacity. You can watch the results as they are posted on our Podcast Index page. These are all beginners, so the quality varies. Most of these authors are using to generate the feed. Your feedback is welcome.

Thanks for the link, looks like good stuff!
For secondary social studies teachers and students, I highly recommend Dan Carlin's Hardcore History easily found at Podcast Alley or through Itunes. His programming, research and reading lists are incredible and are wonderfully produced. The way he covers historical topics and ties them in to current events really spark an interest for the subject.
Does anyone else here listen to Radio Lab? I would recommend this to science teachers without hesitation!
