My Favorite Podcasts

A colleague recently asked me to recommend some podcasts I enjoy listening to, and thought that instead of only sharing with him, I'd post here in case I can contribute some perspective to shows that I appreciate. If you'd care to share your own favorites, or tell us what you think of any of these shows, your civil comments are appreciated.

I use the Downcast app on my iPhone, and it makes it easy for me to group my podcast subscriptions into playlists. I created 4 playlists around the core topics I want to learn about and listen to: Leadership, Tech, Think, and Sports.

The following list does not represent priority, preference, or infer any other kind of rank.
Off the cuff, the shows I go look for recent episodes of include Security Now, Back to Work, and more recently added to the short list: Arrested DevOps.

In any event, here is my list of podcasts, grouped by theme, with both the show website and it's RSS / subscription URL.
