I'm looking for some really captivating, funny, and/or interesting podcasts to keep me occupied during a long, boring commute.

Some that I currently subscribe to, to get a sense of my interests:
Sound of Young America - Really interesting interviews with great alternative/indie comedians, musicians and actors. I think Jesse Thorn asks some great questions, and the people that he interviews are always so down to earth.
Savage Love - SO filthy, really juicy and just hilarious overall. Sometimes I'll sit in my car and keep listening for a few minutes even after I've arrived at my destination. Especially when he gets on the phone with some of his callers.
Comedy Death Ray - They'll have a lot of my favorite comedians like Paul F. Tompkins and David Cross, but I honestly think some of the episodes are really hit or miss and I sort of drift in and out. I still subscribe through because I love "alternative" comedy which is an annoying term but I guess it best describes my favorite comedians. I could probably listen to Patton Oswalt talk for 2 straight hours (which I have, on his 222 album).
I've seen a lot of questions about podcasts looking for specific topics, podasts similar to TAL, podcasts that help you learn or make you smarter etc. I'd love if you all could recommend some podcasts that are just really frickin' entertaining.
