A good podcast that I enjoy is "Writing Excuses". it is fifteen minutes long and each episode deals with a different aspect of writing or publishing with a focus on SF&F. Good Guests and the hosts are all published authors.

Most authors today have blogs that are popular. I also follow a lot of authors' twitter feeds. John Scalzi is my favorite author blogger (he tweets some, but not a lot), and reading Neil Gaiman's twitter feed is really interesting (life of a superstar writer.)
If you have a favorite author and the author is still writing things today (many of my favs are dead, sigh) then odds are good that the author has a blog. Be forewarned, though, upon finding one favorite author's blog, I discovered that she wasn't what I had dreamed up in my imagination. Nothing wrong, just different enough that it was unsettling. I don't follow her blog very closely as a result.
Though we're as far apart in politics as any pair of US citizens can be, I've long enjoyed his work. I only learned of the existence of his blog recently---I'm not a big blog follower---and I look forward to other entries (political differences or not).
This isn't quite what you asked for, but each week on my blog I post links to publishing news and writing advice that I've found on other people's blogs that I think is useful for aspiring or newly published writers. You might find some blogs you like through those links.
