. What podcasts should I listen to?
I can't quite articulate what put me off This American Life. It started feeling preachy, or something. Everyone who does a story sounds exactly the same, somehow. [insert standard criticism of TAL here, please]
So what do I listen to? Well, right now it's just Football Weekly
from the Guardian and Fighting Talk, so that probably doesn't help much. Back when they existed, I listened to Guardian Daily and Islamophonic
I really hate The Prairie Home Companion. The concept
of This American Life appeals to me, but I'm sick of the execution. In some ways, Islamophonic was in the TAL vein, though it was a mix of stories and discussions.
In English or German, please. Or French or Danish if it's exciting enough and easy enough to understand to resurrect my dying French and Danish skills.
