Interesting under-15-minute podcasts?
April 20, 2012 8:52 AM Subscribe
Over the past few years, despite my Luddite sympathies, I've become a devoted podcast listener. I recently dropped a couple that I wasn't enjoying as much as I once had, but I'd like to see if there's maybe one more I could squeeze in. Any suggestions for interesting 10-15 minute podcasts?

I have a 35-40 minute commute to and from work daily - about twenty minutes walking to the Metro, 10-12 minutes on the train, and 5 minutes to the office. Ideally, I'd like to find one more podcast that is on the short end - 15 minutes at most. Weekly or less frequently is better - TEDTalks are just too much. Good topics could include: environment, philosophy & religion, good storytelling, urbanism, culture (something like Studio360, except shorter?). I'm not so big on political shows lately.
Here's what I have now:
- The Dirtbag Diaries
- Radio Ecoshock
- This American Life (NPR)
- On Being (APM/NPR)
- One Planet (BBC World Service)
- Science In Action (BBC World Service)
- Heart and Soul (BBC World Service)
- In Our Time (BBC Radio 4)
Thanks in advance!
