There are many audio and video recordings of Foucault found in various places online. I’ve tried to compile all these and put them in chronological order.

October 20-21 1980 – ‘Truth and Subjectivity’, Howison lectures, UC Berkeley (audio). These lectures were given with slight variations on November 17 and 24 at Dartmouth College. Those lectures were transcribed and published in Political Theory in 1990 and have been republished since in The Politics of Truth and Religion and Culture. Variants between the Berkeley and Dartmouth versions are noted in that text, and in the L’origine de l’herméneutique de soi/About the Beginning of the Hermeneutic of the Subject.
late October 1980 – discussion with Hubert Dreyfus, and Dreyfus’s account of conversations with Foucault and the above lectures. (The link doesn’t provide a date, but Dreyfus’s comments indicate large parts were recorded between the Howison lectures and the seminars Foucault gave later that month at Berkeley. There is some interesting discussion in what are working notes sent to Paul Rabinow while they were working on their book on Foucault.)
6 Jan 1982 – opening lectures of L’hermeneutique du sujet, Collège de France (audio – followed by some of the 1984 course, but see below for a full recording)

There is a lot catalogued as ‘Archives sonaires’ at the IMEC site, but apart from ones otherwise linked above these are all on cd.
There are many other resources on the ina.fr site, including documentaries and discussions of Foucault.
There are also two radio programmes with excerpts from interviews:
Finally, some video documentaries –
Michel Foucault contre lui-même (2014; requires subscription; short excerpt to view)
and an episode of the ‘Beyond Good and Evil‘ series.
Any more out there? (Thanks to those who previously sent links)
There are lots more Foucault resources on this site – bibliographies, audio and video files, some textual comparisons, some short translations, etc.
