Where Can I Listen to Other People's Conversations?

Can you recommend podcasts in which people are having a conversation? I would like to avoid interviews or structured ones with segments.

Some of my favorite podcasts are the Slate Gabfests because they're just people talking to each other, and while there's an outline, there's no super structure (i.e. like an NPR show would have interstitial music and be very formal). I also like WFMU's Seven Second Delay, which while wildly different from the Slate ones, is also a kind of conversation between Ken and Andy, and the people who call in (but it's not all about the people calling in), and is definitely freeform.
I just like listening to people talking or discussing a topic (but not being interviewed about it -- a discussion between equals as it were). The occasional guest is fine or ones in which the guest joins in the discussion without the interview part. All topics, even silly ones, are welcome, but I'm not that into computers, technology, video games, or science fiction. (I seem to find a lot of conversation podcasts about those topics). Thanks.
