Podcasts. Would life be worth living without them? Here’re some of my faves:
— NPR: Shuffle. A daily compilation of the best stories from Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and other shows.
— NPR’s World Story of the Day. Same concept, but limited to foreign dispatches.
— ESPN/Soccernet Extra: A bunch of English football journalists discussing the week’s news. Heavy emphasis on the English Premiership.
— The Marketplace podcast. The daily business show from American Public Media.
— The Splendid Table podcast. Features “abundant information on food preparation, appreciation, and culture.” Thanks to A for turning me on to this one.
— KQED’s Pacific Time podcast. The show “explores the ideas, trends and cultural patterns that flow back and forth between Asia and America.”
— World View, from The New York Times (scroll down to the bottom). Discussions with the NYT‘s international staff.
— This American Life. Obviously.
— Rojas Spanish Language Podcast. For intermediate to advanced Spanish speakers. I like the host’s Peruvian accent.
— On the Media. All media criticism, all the time.
