Help me find some informative scientific podcasts/lectures/audio books/videos about the future of man and technology.

For example, I love TED talks that broach the subject of the future applications of technology optimistically. The DEPTHX one, for instance, is something that really got my mind racing. I also love Carl Sagan's Cosmos, but am often disappointed at how dated some sections are.
A lot of lectures that I find online tend to be meant for students in higher-level courses and are overly academic and specific to that course, and a lot of things that aren't lectures (i.e. Discovery/Science Channel shows) tend to be too starry-eyed, theoretical, not based in actual science, or overly broad.
I'd love to be able to get a nice list of things to listen to at work, ideally free or on Netflix, but I wouldn't be opposed to grabbing some recent. Thanks!
