I'm hooked on "This American Life."
I've been going to work out at a gym in order to use the ellipticals, as a departure from my usual treadmill work at home, and TAL is the perfect companion.
Episodes are just about an hour long, the stories are compelling and they keep my boredom at bay much better than music.
They did an episode in the spring called "The Giant Pool of Money" that was absolutely fantastic in its explanation of the housing crisis. In fact, they got such a positive response that they created a new podcast along those same lines, Planet Money, and they did another episode just a couple weeks ago to explain more of the credit crisis.
