There are quite a few out there, thats why I am asking for some recommendations. I am looking for some good linux podcasts/websites that are for beginners making the switch to using Linux as their primary OS.
I ve been encountering some basic doubts that were solved by googling, but it sure would be nice to know things in a structured fashion so that I know the generalities of the best-practices, gotchas etc and can figure out the specifics.
Checkout theses very good podcasts from JupiterBroadcasting  :
They are very fun to listen, so enjoy !
Also, IBM provides good podcasts on the IBM Linux Technology Center Podcast .
You also asked for links, here's some that was useful for me :
FLOSS Weekly http://www.twit.tv/FLOSS
They've had excellent guests and cover a lot of topics.
LugRadio  is pretty good if you like your podcasts with a British accent. http://lugradio.org/
I really enjoy the Ubuntu UK podcast .
Friendly folk. http://podcast.ubuntu-uk.org/
