My other podcasts are:
- Hardcore history, HH Addendum, & Common Sense, all by Dan Carlin
- SpyCast, International Spy Museum
- Inf. Monkey Cage, Brian Cox
- Criminal
- Revolutions
- Freakonomics, Stephen Dubner
- Intercepted, Jeremy Scahill
- Making Sense, Sam Harris
- Revisionist History, Malcolm Gladwell
Good list, haven't heard intercepted, and not so big on the Sam Harris, there was something self-helpy about it that didn't scratch my itch right..

I do like the philosophical abstractions but have different stuff on my subscribe list.
For Interview format:
Mind Scape with Sean Carroll,
Rationally Speaking with Julia Galef,
For more of a Historical Narrative:
Philosophize This!

If your into Historic Narratives, The History of English podcast
This is an out there recommendation for most I sure, pretty specific scope with already 60+ hours of content produced. Its about the history of the English Language, so far he has gone from the reconstruction of the Indo-European language up to the 14th century. The development and layering of languages together provides a pretty good back drop for a historical narrative and understanding how populations and cultures have changed over time.
