Yes, Podcasts, those nice little Audiobooks I can listen to on the way to work. With the current amount of Podcasts, it's like searching a needle in a haystack, except that the haystack happens to be the Internet and is filled with too many of these "Hot new Gadgets" stuff :(
Now, even though I am mainly a .NET developer nowadays, maybe anyone knows some good Podcasts from people regarding the whole software lifecycle? Unit Testing, Continous Integration, Documentation, Deployment...
So - what are you guys and gals listening to?

I suggest that everybody writes exactly one podcast per answer (post several answers if needed), such that the voting tells how the other people think about this one podcast. And how about a one sentence description?
Has SO been reduced to building collections of links? This looks my univeristy webpage in 1993. And like my 1993 webpage, it's out of date the moment it's written.
Except unlike a web site this is a wiki - you can fix changed links, remove dead site,s and vote up/down new and old entries. It's more like the music charts!
Martin Except that 1. People aren't going to browse 4 pages of results and to vote 2. Especially now that the results are consolidated in the question 3. This question doesn't get as much traction today as when it was created (so votes don't reflect anything).
While I appreciate this podcast list, I think skaffman makes a valid point. Such lists may be more appropriate on a site such as Delicious whose purpose is to collect links. Even Wikipedia may be more appropriate since each page does not have a list of answers. As Pascal points out, answer votes don't matter much as the list changes or becomes out of date.
Try Software Engineering Radio for actual issues, it's more heavyweight than those TWIT gossipy podcasts.
