I enjoy/ing/ed:

Root of Evil: familial podcast about the alleged black dahlia murderer (their dad)
Athletico Mince: Bob Mortimer goodness and it doesn't really matter if you like football or not
The Slow Burn series: series long documentaries about Watergate, Clinton/Lewinsky
Crime town: the eponymous first series of the podcast was a particularly fascinating look at the criminal and governmental underbelly of Providence, Rhode Island. The second series about the murder of Bobby Kennedy also good.
Assassination: really interesting BBC Worldwide documentary about the killing of Benazir Bhutto.
Disgraceland: 25 minute spots focussing on one sordid rock and roll story, be it the death of Sid and Nancy or the death of Sam Cook. I find the narrator a touch annoying, but he's not without slacker appeal either.

The End of The World with Josh Clarke is keeping me company this week. Featuring one of the hosts of mega-popular Stuff You Should Know, it's a very well produced look at the dangers facing humanity in our near and far furture

If you like films, then both Wittertainment with Kermode and Mayo is good, as is Kermode on Film. The Empire Podcast is good as well.

"D&D is for Nerds" is all about a D&D GM and people who haven't played before doing roleplaying. It's funny as piss. I've not found a better player than Podcast Addict.

That didn't remember my place if I stopped in the middle of an episode, though. Does it do that now?

More tricky would be that the players pretty much know what to do, don't they?

I shall listen, obv.

Also what happens when, eg, the Dambusters drop a load of bombs but they roll natural ones for a critical fail and one of them goes off in the bomb bay?

Well, I haven't heard many yet, but it goes horribly off the rails in BTTF2 and pretty horrifically bad in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

One of the players seem pretty keen to push the stories away from the movies, certainly.

That's what I mean. Except it's worse than that -- how do you steer the players back on track if they do something different to what you expect? Any attempt to impose plot on an RPGs is fundamentally incompatible with player agency, and player agency is the whole damned ballgame. You can have very carefully hidden rails, sometimes, but if the players notice -- even subconsciously -- you risk them disengaging with the game. And it's even harder than usual to hide the rails when they're running along a film the players probably know.

(Having said that, that's not to say it's not good fodder for a podcast, of course, especially as the players will be in on it. And it could work if you concentrate more on using the setting and characters of the movie, and not the actual plot. It'd be tough to pull off though.)

Using the Labyrinth episode as an example, the GM has additional options available for when the player goes off track. He's a good GM in that he doesn't let them run riot until it's funny enough to to so.

I lasted 5 minutes of the first episode, it's terrible! :D
What an utterly juvenile and charmless bunch of people, it's like a school play...but worse.

I was using Podcast Go to satisfy my podcast needs but I found it to be pretty much useless at anything but serving me obtrusive ads. The final nail was when it no longer opened when tapped.

This led me to discover Google Podcasts. Is this new? Does anyone else use it? It's very good!

Rule of Three: excellent podcast about comedy. Basically two people who really understand and love comedy chatting about it. Each week a guest focusses on one comedy they love. Charlie Brooker on Airplane! Is a good episode to start with.

I've been listening to David Tennant's podcast and it is indeed mostly very pleasant. But Gordon Brown *cannot* let David finish his questions before butting in with an answer and it's INFURIATING.
