Great podcast for astronomy fans

Paul has provided the best coverage out there (by far) of Tabby's Star on this show. The episodes that delve into other non-astronomy/SETI topics are also pretty cool. My only quibble is that you won't like the (sometimes quite long) musical outtros unless you share the host's enthusiasm for weird jazz.
