Theres an Irish football podcast called Second Captains that is quite good. Just be sure to spot the difference between their general sport and football episodes if you try it.
If you like NPR politics I'd recommend Slates Political Gabfest and Vox's The Weeds. I find the Weeds especially good as they do a bit of the weeks politics and then look at more macro issues.
The New Yorker Politics and More is another good US politics podcast too.
On your other more general stuff there I'd recommend Invisibilia, another NPR one. Its kind of broad but I find it exceptionally well produced and usually really interesting.
I listen to a lot of TV, Film, comedy, beer, etc podcasts too.
