TAL without the annoying bits. And possibly in Spanish.

Storytelling, deep news stories, themed narratives: Podcasts in this vein wanted. Think "This American Life" but not always as funny or quirky, or the longer news stories on NPR that use the lens of a smaller story-within-a-story. Artsy takes on news also welcome. In addition, which Latino podcasts (in the same general format) have caught your ear?

I'd be *really* happy if they didn't have annoying lead-ins, had relatively good sound quality and didn't blab on and on (and on) at the beginning and end of the show.
I found "Morning Stories" on WGBH and this sounds pretty good so far. I searched the archives and found a few older posts but am wondering what is new specifically in this 'artsier', storytelling form of news.
Ideally it would take current events and put them into a deeper, more human perspective, or it would take a general interest story and make it interesting, not always as funny/witty/shoegazing as TAL. Think along the veins of documentary films but in audio podcasting form.
Also, are there any great podcasts (in Spanish) that focus on Latino stories/issues/perspectives/communities/news?
