This post is regularly updated. It gives a list of Psychology, Political Science and Sociology podcasts .

Shrink Rap Radio, (review, site, feed).
A podcast series hosted by Dr. David van Nuys, who interviews mainly psychology professionals and the occasional client, or other non-professionals somehow involved in the field of psychology. In addition, on every edition of Shrinkrapradio contains Dr. Dave addressing his audience establishing a community feel to the regular podcast listeners.

One course I would like to highlight is "Distributed Cognition" from USCD. As always, one has to access UCSD podcasts during the quarter the courses are being taught, because the university pulls these off soon thereafter.

This one is a gem, and introduces concepts that are quite radical and yet intuitive.

An added bonus is that the course materials including slides can also be accessed to supplement the course

Hi again!

You might also like some programs from Radio National (Australia).

'All in the mind' is an excellent, weekly podcast focussing on science and psychology.

'The Spirit of Things' is an hour-long weekly podcast focussing on religion and spirituality.

'Late Night Live' with Philip Adams is a wonderful interview program with an emphasis on current affairs, politics and history. Philip Adams is a national treasure - and such a gifted interviewer.

Hope these suggestions are of interest :)
