While it goes without saying that you should download my podcast, there are some others that I recommend as well:

Illasounds - Jazz from bebop, swing, hard bop and cool to avant garde, free jazz and jazz rock plus soul, funk, latin, salsa, Brazilian music, rare groove and old school hip-hop. The newest podcast is 20 Guitar Greats "Masters of the six string past and present. Featuring Pat Metheny, Wes Montgomery, Django Reinhardt, George Benson, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell (above), Joe Pass, Larry Coryell, Jim Hall, Jimmy Raney, Barney Kessel, Emily Remler, Pat Martino, Herb Ellis, Ron Affif, Peter Leitch and Michael Mussilami."

Taran's Free Jazz Hour - Podcasting free jazz, avant-garde jazz, creative and improvised music. The show brings you the opportunity to hear the sounds created by the jazz greats of yore as well as contemporary artists keeping the flame. He has some recent podcasts available and is preparing a mammoth 12 hour jazz radio show.

Melodiradion - Features Live & rare recordings of Jazz and improvised music such as (in the most recent episode) John Surman/Mike Osborne/Alan Skidmore, Polar Bear, Arve Henriksen, Jan Garbarek - Bobo Stenson Quartet, John Surman/Jack Bruce/ Jon Hiseman, Kevin Norton's Metaphor Quartet and Joe McPhee.
