Google Play Music – While not currently available to podcast listeners, podcast producers can submit their RSS feeds now. With native support for Android devices and hopefully some strong marketing by Google, this directory is likely to become the most popular place to find podcasts behind iTunes.

Miro – The open-source podcatcher. Available for users on most major operating systems (Mac, Windows, Linux).

TuneIn – A blend of terrestrial radio, music and podcasts, TuneIn Radio provides users with a wealth of audio content.
