    Nature http://www.nature.com/podcast/index.html
    Science http://www.sciencemag.org/about/podcast.dtl
    Cell feed://podcast.cell.com/cell.xml

    I find the DNA Files program aired on NPR stations, to be worthwhile for a second listen. Their webcasts may be found here
    example - Beyond Human : Comparing the Genomes of Humans, Apes and Birds.

    Yes, when it comes to biology, I really like "This Week In Virology" and "This Week In Parasitism". They are really, really well done, and if I only had some basic knowledge of the fields, I'm sure I could appreciate them for real :)

    Hmm, can't believe nobody mentioned Radiolab:

    http://www.wnyc.org/shows/radiolab/

    Definitely my fav. podcast of all time. Hosted by Robert Krulwich (sp?) who sometimes hosts those nova science now things, and an audio engineer/artist jad abumrad (sp?). It's acoustically beautiful on acount of the sound art influence- not just two old farts reading some dusty documents. Very well put together. It usually deals with topics closer to neuroscience then pure physics- which might be a turn off for some, but I really like it. Try it.



    As a good Canadian I also recommend:

    Quirks and Quarks

    http://www.cbc.ca/quirks/podcast.html

    It's been around forever and it's really good. A good balance of different scientific subjects.
