I commute several hours a week to work and have recently taken up listening to podcasts to pass the time. There are two great ones out there - Peikoff's questions and answers and one called "Talk Objectivism" - but I'm looking for more. They don't have to be Objectivst per se, but recommendations having to do with philosophy / critical thinking would be greatly appreciated. What do you listen to?

You might look at Diana Hsieh's Rationally Selfish Radio, and Greg Perkins' Objectivism Seminar. (Full disclosure: I'm an active participant in the latter.)

One podcast I'd like to suggest that I found on iTunes recently is Penn Jillete's hour-long radio show that he used to have in Las Vegas from roughly 2006 to around 2008.

Penn Jillete, the talkative half of the magic team Penn & Teller, is an atheist and libertarian. Much of his radio talk show was about those issues, with some funny stories about his show business career thrown in as well. Some of the podcasts include interviews with Richard Dawkins, James Randi, and the late Norman Borlaug.

Thank you all so much for the suggestions! I will check each of these out. Regarding these two, do you know if/when they'll be available on itunes?

I have no idea; you can email Greg and Diana and ask them if they have any plans along those lines. (I don't even know what would be required to do that.)
