Help me find some podcasts in Hebrew!

Hi, I'm looking for help in finding podcasts in Hebrew. When I google "podcasts in Hebrew" I get a lot of listings of language learning sites, but not much help finding actual podcasts...

Basically, I just want to passively listen to people talking in Hebrew. If I could read Hebrew I guess I could go onto a Hebrew language website and just click on a link but I can't read Hebrew!

If I could get links to sites that have podcasts PLUS an indication of what to click on, that would be extremely helpful. I don't care too much what the topics are on the podcasts, I just want to hear people talking. Preferably women, but men talking is ok.

Digging around on the Haaretz website got me Israeli Story, which is apparently an attempt to port This American Life to Israel. This article mentions a couple of English-language Israeli podcasts. You might see if their websites link to any in Hebrew.

I think you can stream stuff off the IBA website, but you need Silverlight installed, which I don't have. It's got some limited options to switch the navigation to English, and Google Translate seems to do okay. I couldn't find podcasts, though.

I also found, which if nothing else gives you links to a load of radio stations. (It purports to have podcasts, but I don't see any.)

Open in Chrome. You'll get the option to translate the page (which appears to contain many podcasts) into English.

Whenever I'm doing a search like this for Chinese stuff, I search for "podcast" plus a random Chinese character. This seems to put Google in Chinese mode and returns better quality search results. Maybe you could do the same for Hebrew?

Yeah, icast is the biggest site for podcasts in Hebrew.
Lots of independent material is hosted there.
