I'd like a world news podcast that is released daily, and is a brief summary of top stories. (the shorter the better, but definitely less than 30 minutes). BBC Global News
has too much non-top stories. I want a summary of the top 10 news stories. I don't want personal stories, I want trending news items from global news, for example: who is rioting? Who experienced a typhoon? What huge controversy happened at the Olympics? What song is taking over the airwaves? Which app just became the most downloaded app in history? So I guess the biggest news items, and the biggest trending items.

Now that NPR's It's All Politics is ending, I need a new podcast that focuses on American politics and national news. I love podcasts like PRI's The World and BBC Newshour, but I want something that only focuses on American stories.
I already listen to Slate's Political Gabfest. Does anyone here have any other suggestions? I'm also looking for high quality blogs that are frequently updated. Thanks for any suggestions!

I would like to be more informed about world events. Can you recommend some podcasts that I can listen to? I'd like to have a variety of perspectives (both politically and geographically) but the main thing is that they are BOTH entertaining and informative. [more inside]

A few days ago the New York Times discontinued the New York Times Front Page podcast. Help me find a replacement. I'm looking for a short (5-10 minutes) podcast that gives a quick overview of the news of the day. [more inside]

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? [more inside]
