Here is a list of my favorite podcasts, most are of higher-quality than others, but I find them all interesting!

Openpodcast.org (anyone)
rss: http://openpodcast.org/podcast.xml
website: http://www.openpodcast.org/
Ben Tucker set up this cool server where anyone at all can submit an MP3 by email, and it will be automaticly added to the feed. Some people are using this as a feed service or advertisement service for their own show; like the Treo Podcast, The Podcasting- Tapdancing News (Halarious!), somethinghappened.com and Mark and Darrell Show Survival Guide. Content varies as much as the people that post.. and so does of course the quality of the shows. A show averages about 5 minutes, though the Treo podcast is usually longer.

Techshorts (Richard Whifall)
rss: http://www.techshorts.com/wp-rss2.php
website: http://www.techshorts.com/
Brand new podcast by EA gamedesigner Richard Whifall. Focuses on gaming and features game reviews, but also talks about tech and the internet in general.

I have other podcasts listed, but they are only their cause I am trying them out. Not worth posting here.. yet.
