Progressive Economics from John Maynard Keynes and the New Deal to John Kenneth Galbraith and Joseph Stiglitz and Steve Keen. This is low-budget, heretical economics from the other side of the tracks: the Commons and public goods, the centrality of effective demand, and the mismanagement of economies by monetary authorities and others closer to corporate power than fundamental understanding.

I have been listening to Alan Harvey since his first podcast. I stumbled across it while endeavoring to learn more about economics as I watched ideological warfare being conducted in the more traditional media. Harvey serves as an aggregator of news (some of which I regularly consume myself, some which I had not discovered), as well as a sensible interpreter of current events in terms of demand-side economics. A great source, I highly recommend it.
This guys is a socialist! if you want real economics you should look no further than the Lew Rockwell podcast.
