I love their stories. Perfect for long drives or long runs. Another great (free) Science Fiction podcaster out there is Escape Pod.

Frequently great content, and I am amazed at the material Tony Smith has gotten permission to podcast over the years, though he really gets on my nerves sometimes when he rambles on too long, laughs a little too crazily, or claims for the hundredth time that he would have done so much better in school if he's just had [the person reading the current podcast's science fact essay] for a teacher instead of the dry old jerks he did have. But this is one of the few podcasts I am subscribed to that I actually keep up with.

he rambles on too long,

I had to take a sabbatical after one too many dog stories. Just dip back in now when it's an author I really fancy reading / hearing.

Though the awards specials he's done have been awesome. First time I've ever read / heard all the entries for the Hugo etc.
