How do I support the media I like, financially

I read tons of small to medium blogs, read and listen to many independent news producers from public radio to online editions of mainstream newspapers to indy news sources, and listen to dozens of different podcasts. I have started donating directly to a few of these writers and producers, but frankly, it's impossible for me to donate to all of them. What can I do to support a sustainable economy for these nonprofits/progressive media companies/small ventures/creative projects/etc? [more inside]

Panel Shows: Podcast Edition

I really love British panel shows. I would love to find some podcast equivalents, with the caveat that I am in the US so they need to be available for (relatively) easy download directly to my iPhone in the US, preferably through iTunes, though iTunes availability is not a dealbreaker. Any recommendations? [more inside]

Give me your English podcasts from non-native English speaking hosts.

I'm trying to improve my ability to write convincing dialog for non-native English speakers. One of the best ways I've found is to listen to a few hours of an ESL speaker to get a feel for their slight differences in usage and grammar. Podcasts are perfect for this, but I've been having problems finding shows. [more inside]

Help finding an episode of On the Media from a snippit

Hi, I'm trying to put together a week of lectures on Women in Refrigerators for my students and I have gone and found Gail Simone's old list and looked at Feminist Frequency's episodes for Bitch Magazine, and I have some passages from a myth textbook and Joseph Campbell's work. But I want to add one of my favorite podcasts, On the Media. I vaguely remember the host Brooke Gladstone talking to a guest once and she says that when she was younger and she remembers watching those old black and white movies like Perils of Pauline she remembers there being something vaguely erotic or sexual about the way that the evil villains would tie up the damsels in distress and leave them on the railroad tracks, and she may have said she wrote her masters thesis on it? But I can't find a thesis on Proquest or JStor that Brooke published, anyone with a fantastic memory?

Name my project! Podcast feed delayer edition.

Please help me name my "podcast feed delayer" project.

Why are serial-numbered items "a problem"

In episode 1 of Season 2 of Serial, it is noted that Bowe Bergdahl left behind all his "sensitive items." Someone clarifies that sensitive items are "serial numbered gear that would be a problem. Like his weapon, the laser for his weapon, the optic, his night optics..." I understand why the Army would not want this technology to be in the hands of the enemy. But what do the serial numbers have to do with it? [more inside]

Help me find a very specific episode of This American Life.

I'm looking for a segment from This American Life to have a friend listen to, because the story is oddly specific to her life. The segment is about a man and a woman who were at one point married, but then divorced, because the husband suffered from a type of delusional disorder where he believed his wife was sleeping around with just about everyone. The interview was from the perspective of the woman, since the man had moved on to a new woman, and presumably would take up the same course of actions with her (the wife's words [paraphrasing here]). I've looked through the tags on TAL's website and even searched by air date back, but I think that the part I'm looking for was fairly short within the context of the episode itself. IIRC, in the same episode, one of the presenters on TAL talked with a woman who was sort of a secret agent, maybe met her in a bar, and followed her around for a bit. I know for certain that that part was in the same episode. If anyone out there can hope me find this episode, I would forever be in your internet debt!

Looking for a law-nerd podcast

I'm looking to diversify the podcasts I listen to on my commute - right now it's mainly media-related and comedy shows, with only Dan Carlin and the Bugle talking about real-world concerns. My job involves reading a tracking a lot of ongoing litigation (but I am not a lawyer) and I've gotten to really enjoy looking at those issues, so I'd like to add something about interesting current or historical court cases to my rotation. But I've had a hard time finding something that goes as far into the weeds as I'd like -- Dahlia Lithwick's Amicus, for instance, covers topics I'm interested in but doesn't tell me much that I didn't already know, while the Legal Talk Network has lots of deep-dive podcasts but they're all aimed at practicing lawyers. Is there a program out there that hits that sweet spot?
