Ten decent podcasts

Podcasts are great. For me it is radio for the 21st century.
The trick is finding shows that suit you.
This is list of the ones I enjoy at the moment.
There are others that I listen to, and ones that would have made the list in the past, but this sums up where I am at the moment.
They are in rough order, but it depends on the mood I'm in.
Themes: Science, Current Affairs, Skepticism, Discussion

Overview: If I could list only one, it would be this one.
What a privilege it is to have five such well educated, intelligent and humorous people discussing the big and small issues;
from nano technology to the limits of the universe.
from the workings of the immune system to who would win a fight between a monkey and an eagle.

Favourite episode: The one where Jay loses it over the possibility of information of other universes being present in background radiation.
Themes: History, discussion, insite.
