I've recently started on 'Doctor Who The Writer's Room' and have recently listened though the whole back catalogue of 'I'll Explain Later' - both brilliant and well worth listening to for critical perspectives on classic Who.
DW News wise, I've started listening to 'This Week in Doctor Who' which is fun, and I dabble with 'Verity!' and 'The Doctor Who Show' too. Plus I know the guys who do Staggering Stories, so I try and keep up with that.
Non-DW, 'No Such Thing as a Fish' - the QI Elves podcast is brilliant and very funny and I would really recommend 'The Two Shot Podcast' - fascinating chats with creatives (mainly actors) about how they got into the industry. Ingrid Oliver was a recent guest.

Recently, Ive been listening to the 99 percent invisible podcast (describes on its website as "99% Invisible is about all the thought that goes into the things we don’t think about — the unnoticed architecture and design that shape our world).
Its US focussed on the whole (which means interest levels vary for me as an Aussie), but it is overall an interesting listen.
the most recent episode (number 300) was about airships, and included a reasonable portion on the R101 (no mention of Charlie or the Triskeli). There is a print version on their website: www.99percentinvisible.org
Lizbeth is very excitable about a lot of the films but Paul brings the knowledge, the background and they make a good duo overall though I wish she would let Paul speak for 30 seconds without talking over him. A solid cast which could get better with more episodes and practice.
Though I'm always sympathetic with people who agree Brian Donlevy was the worst thing about the Quatermass films.
For the last few months I've also been a religious listener of the "Stay Tuned with Preet" podcast. It's hosted by Preet Bharara, the former US Attorney for the SDNY (until he was inexplicably fired by Trump just a few months after Trump had asked him to stay on). Every show he has a prominent guest on for an interview and discussion, usually about the current events of the past week (though sometimes they speak to more general civic subjects), from the perspective of people who are experts or highly experienced in related fields. Some of the more prominent guests have included Ronan Farrow, Bill Browder, Leon Panetta, Garry Kasparov, the Commissioner of the NYPD, and a number of serving judges, Senators, and Congresspeople.
Not being an American myself, I find it very informative.
