Should be community wiki, since it's asking for a sorted list of resources? – Scott Morrison Jul 20 '10 at 19:48
Yes, any question that asks users to create a list or poll should definitely be made community wiki. I converted this question. – Robert Cartaino Jul 20 '10 at 20:35
Why is this tagged off topic? Surely if it needs this tag then it should be closed... – Jacob Jul 20 '10 at 21:15

Peter Rowlett has a couple mathematical podcasts. Travels in a Mathematical World produced 64 episodes, but recently stopped. He has a new podcast Math / Maths that he co-hosts with Samuel Hansen.

Samuel Hansen also has a couple other podcasts: Strongly Connected Components and Permutations and Combinations. Strongly Connected Components is more mathematical and often features interviews. I've only listened to Permutations and Combinations once or twice. I believe it's more of a comedy show.

I would like to draw attention to the beautifully produced podcast Relatively Prime hosted by Samuel Hansen, which was funded through a successful kickstarter campaign. All eight episodes are well worth a listen and include interviews with some very high profile and influential mathematicians.

More or Less is a BBC Radio 4 programme about maths and statistics in the news, and there is a free podcast. It's presented by Tim Harford, the Undercover Economist from the Financial Times.

Oh, wow, Tim Harford! :) – Vivi Jul 20 '10 at 20:46

The Science of Better is a good applied math podcast. Features applications of operations research to practical problems.

I listen to Math Mutation Podcast. The topics are interesting and understandable by a layman.

MAA podcast has an archive. I think it has stopped producing new ones.

Strongly Connected components is a great podcast about interviews to several american mathematicians.

The BBC has a History of Mathematics series. Worth listening to.

Somewhat self promotion but Dave Gale and Colin Beveridge record the Wrong, But Useful Podcast on an approximately monthly basis.

Also can be found on iTunes.
