I've exhausted WTF with Marc Maron and I'm burned out on Radiolab. Anyone have some work-mode-friendly podcast recommends?

Oddly specific request: I wouldn't mind a good Medieval history or Civil War history podcast.

I hear Welcome to NightVale is pretty good for sci-fi.

I second Welcome To Nightvale. Deliciously Lovecraftian

Not exactly a podcast, but you might consider one of the series by Crash Course

Another one I've been finding really enjoyable (and short podcasts, but many of them) is the one by Adam Savage of Mythbusters' fame. His is called Still Untitled.

I second this, very entertaining.

Another one that I really like is "This American Life" with Ira Glass. It is kind of like radiolab as far as content goes but the format and editing style is a lot easier to listen to (in my opinion).

The only podcast I actively watch is the Mega64 video podcast. Definitely not work-friendly though.
