These are podcasts I use to learn languages, to improve my listening skills in languages I'm learning, and to learn about language and linguistics. I know some of the people who make them, and have appeared on some of the podcasts. There are also links to a few comedy podcasts I like.

If you can recommend any other language-related podcasts, do let me know.

These podcasts are also available on iTunes, Soundcloud, and/or other podcast platforms.
