I'm (still[!]) listening to Bill Simmons as my number one podcast.
S-Town was holy-cow-fantastic but alas it's 7 episodes are over (for me) so I'm not listening to it at the moment.
Radiolab is a definite whenever they have a new one.
Still hoping for a smashing Serial Season 3.
I've started listening to Freakonomics Radio podcast a little but not consistently.
I really liked the Malcolm Gladwell podcast from last summer, Revisionist History.
Others that I listen to, but a lot less, include Men In Blazers and some of The Ringer's various podcasts.

Butter, you'll probably like Accused, which was done by the Cincinnati Enquirer.  It's in the same vein as Serial, though not as well produced.  My friend Andrew (Readymaid keyboardist) did the music.

I happened upon that when cruising for something to listen to after S-Town.  It is going in my back pocket for later.

Butter, you have similar tastes in podcasts as my wife, and she listens to one called "My Favorite Murder" so you might want to check it out. She says she gets annoyed from time to time but generally likes it.

Tried to listen to a couple of "crime" podcasts that take a funny tack... but found that they were often taking it a bit further than I was comfortable with.  Listened to a LAST PODCAST ON THE LEFT on the Toybox Killer, for example... and they almost sounded in awe of the guy and some of the jokes just went way too far.  Even though it was funny at times.

But I will give it a shot.

I like Lore as well. And of course Accused!

If you like listening to musicians/songwriters discuss their craft, Sodajerker is the best of the lot, I think. Of course it depends on the guest (much as I love Mike Viola, I really got tired of the 'ya knows' every other word) but the two Liverpudlians who do the interviews really have a nice way of getting the best from their guests. The Andy Partridge interview is a gem.

I just started listening to this one too.  This one is good for me because I don't have to listen to every episode.  Most are songs I'm not interested in, so I can pick and choose like I do Nerdist.

I just started listening to NANCY (from WNYC) and I love it.
