Your list looks similar to mine with the following missing from yours:

A Moment in Reason; a short skeptical and rational rant
Dogma Free America
Ex-Christian Monologues*
Logically Critical*
Mr. Deity (video podcast)
Secular Nation Podcast
The Skeptics' Guide 5X5

* no new podcasts and none are expected but these are still good to listen to.

I have most of the ones you've listed but also have QuackCast. As described on it's own page, it's a
Quote
podcast review of Quacks, Frauds and Charlatans. Oops. Thats not right. That should be Supplements, Complementary and Alternative Medicine i.e. SCAM
Dr. Mark Crislip has an excellent podcast on the 'power of prayer'.

New casts come out as he as time for them.

New forum member Grimm reminded me of a good podcast I had enjoyed but not carried over when I switched machines.  [ dips head in mocked shame ]

Here it is;

Skeptoid
RSS for podcast readers: http://skeptoid.com/subscribe.php
Web page: http://skeptoid.com

Quote
Skeptoid is a weekly science podcast dedicated to furthering knowledge by blasting away the widespread pseudosciences that infect popular culture.

Each weekly episode focuses on a single phenomenon — an urban legend, a paranormal claim, alternative therapy, or something just plain stupid — that you've heard of, and that you probably believe in. Skeptoid attempts to expose the folly of belief in non-evidence based phenomena, and more importantly, explains the factual scientific reality.

Skeptoid DVD-ROMFrom the sublime to the startling, no topic is sacred, politically incorrect though that may be. 74,100 weekly downloads.

Been meaning to post about this for a while.

Croc -- I've become a podcast junkie, too --- mainly because the quality of broadcasting here in Germany is complete and utter s**t.

One of my most recent discoveries is the amateur scientist podcast. It's absolutely f**king hilarious. Brian Thomson and Bob Teague are a brilliant duo, and they've often had me crying with laughter With their bizarro take on everything: "So, Pastor Phelps, do you think that the acceptance of homosexuality in modern-day America is in any way related to the rise of disco music in the 1970s?" (This was in an actual interview with Fred Phelps' increasingly bemused  son).

Hermes --- that history of Rome is rather good, isn't it?

Anyway, some others that may merit your consideration, mostly with a sceptical/comedy bent:

The Bugle

The Pseudoscientists --- podcast of the young Australian sceptics.

Sunday's Supplement: a  podcast that has the unlikely premise facing off the supplement magazines that come with the British Sunday papers, but which succeeds brilliantly thanks, in no small part, to the hosts' scepticism and deep, deep hatred of Piers Morgan.

 I think I would ask Iszi Lawrence to marry me if

A)I wasn't already married, and

B) she wasn't infatuated with Alan Rickman

And, yes,  big up to the atheist community of Austin for the atheist experience and the non-prophets.

Also, if you want some NPR-style good, honest, thoughtful debate about the ideas that have shaped our world then you could do little better than In Our Time. Gawd bless the BBC,  guvnor. Also, most of the output of BBC radio four --- the world's best broadcaster bar none, if you ask me* --- is available either as a podcast, or through their iPlayer a service.

Edit:How could I have forgotten the Skepchick podcast?

* Of course, there's always the Platitudinously egregious Thought for the Day, but I can forgive them for that, just about.
