Lately I’ve been falling asleep to The History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps. I’m 60 episodes in and have only gotten to the Stoics.

The Paris Review Podcast is great for poetry and short stories. I think they also pointed me to LeVar Burton Reads.

Other than that I follow a bunch of F1 podcasts, to keep up with the gossip in the off-season.

Oh, and Snedtänkt, the best podcast in Swedish you will probably never listen to. Topics include the subculture of Gothenburg, Jules Verne, 70’s pornos and anxiety sex, pilsner movies, and the dark history of amusement parks.

Jasså? Är du säker? Svenska språket är inte hemlighet språket. ;)

Thanks for the link. I was on the lookout for Swedish media, podcasts seem like a good challenge and exercise. I've been stuck on that "I mostly understand people on TV" B1-level for far too long.

Säg till om det är något speciellt du är intresserad av så kan jag försöka rekommendera något passande på svenska. Av ren nyfikenhet, hur svårt är det med olika dialekter när man lär sig svenska?

(Translation: Let me know if there’s anything specific you’re interested in and I’ll try to recommending something in Swedish. Out of curiosity, how hard is it with different dialects when trying to learn Swedish?)
