If you're looking for a really interesting climbing podcast then I recommend Hazel Findlay and Mina Leslie-Wujastyk's new one - `The Curious Climber'. Just released on iTunes (and available elsewhere). There are only two episodes so far, but if the first one (with Hazel and Beth Rodden) sets the tone for the rest then it's going to be excellent. It obviously helps that Beth Rodden is a big name, with a well-known climbing CV, but that on its own would be worthless if the talk was just of routes, gear, training etc etc. But its not, if fact its almost everything bar that; it's talk of being a teenage competitor, of becoming a professional, of how social media and sponsors interact with that, it's of being a woman and a mother. And it helps that Beth Rodden is so articulate and is, now, so objective about what she's been through (and that Hazel is such a good interviewer, right off the bat). It was a fascinating hour's listen.
