Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
Bullseye from NPR is your curated guide to culture. Jesse Thorn hosts in-depth interviews with brilliant creators, culture picks from our favorite critics and irreverent original comedy. Bullseye has been featured in Time, The New York Times, GQ and McSweeney's, which called it "the kind of show people listen to in a more perfect world." (Formerly known as The Sound of Young America.)

Joel Hodgson was the original host of Mystery Science Theater 3000.  He and his cohorts J. Elvis Weinstein and Frank Conniff discuss their new venture, Cinematic Titanic, which is, format-wise, a followup to MST3K.

Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich are the hosts of the public radio program RadioLab.  It's a boldly artful show about big ideas, seen largely through the lens of science.  The program's aesthetic combines Krulwich's extensive reportorial background with Abumrad's history as an experimental radio producer and music composer.  (If you got a partial download of this show last week, delete that file and re-download.)
