PodcastFilter: Looking for podcasts hosted by men with pleasing/interesting voices.

I only recently discovered talk radio a few years ago. While scanning stations I ran into Matt Dahl (son of Steve Dahl) hosting a short show on an all-talk station residing in FM.
Something about his voice was very appealing to me. It has interesting little nuances and maybe a slight accent that I find personable and even relaxing.
The talk radio station died and Matt Dahl began podcasting so I picked up his show and after his updates slowed down I began my search for new voices.
I've been listening to AskMefi recommended podcasts the past few weeks.
These are voices that I also like:
Leo Laporte - he does that Tech one. His voice is almost too "perfect" and almost lacking character but his tone is super soothing to me. And he does accents really we'll.
Peter Sagal - he does Wait Wait Don't Tell Me. He has a lot of nuances and is somewhat different. Im not too fond of how announcer-y/game show host-y he goes though.
Voices I don't like:
Ira Glass-nothing special or soothing about his voice.
Carl Kasell- he helps out in WWDTM. His voice is interesting, but not appealing.
Any recommendations? Content isn't a huge issue... the Matt Dahl show is usually just about his life... and while I do love This American Life's content, I'm just just looking for voices.
