Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal is solid... daily episodes that are roughly 20 min long and provide a good overview of the markets, business news, and politics.

Deal of the Week by Bloomberg is also really good and highly relevant to banking.

Deal of the Week ended recently but it was amazing. Anyone know of any similar M&A-focused podcasts?

I will second Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal. Listen every day.

I tend to listen to the M&A Science Podcast. It's a great and educational podcast because it explores the intricate world of M&A with industry leaders and practitioners.
