Your favorite non-US interview podcasts/radio shows

I love listening to interviews of interesting people! I'm especially fond of listening to such shows when they are based in a country other than the US. Please recommend me your favorite English-language interview shows from countries other than the US.

European History for the ignorant

I was staring at the map of Europe yesterday, and I realized that I know very little history. To start I would like to learn about the Colonial Period and the major power players there in. I seem to be ingesting a lot of podcasts and audiobooks lately so that would be perfect. To be clear, I'm looking for an introductory level work to get me started. [more inside]

Spoken Word for the Great Outdoors

I recently bought a pair of Aftershokz bone conduction headphones, with the express purpose of using these to listen to podcasts, audiobooks etc. without shutting out the sounds of the world around me when hiking. As hoped, they work brilliantly, so I'm now looking for new ideas of what to listen to when spending quality alone time surrounded by nature. [more inside]

What are some audio resources on gentrification and new urbanism?

I'm interesting in better understanding the roots of gentrification (on both a historical level and a systemic level) and what some of the ways that new urbanists, activists, community groups and city planners are working to make cities and small towns more equitable. I know its much more complex than "rich people move in and push the poor out." [more inside]

Podcast recommendations, please!

I've started listening to podcasts on my daily one-hour-each-way commute. I'm enjoying StoryCorps, This American Life, and Pop Culture Happy Hour so far. What other podcasts might I enjoy? Bonus points for content relating to books/authors(But NOT podcasts of authors reading their work--I can listen to audiobooks for that!)--but I'm open to other topics. I'm not really into advice-type programs or comedy--funny is fine, but not comedy as the main draw. Thanks in advance--I know you'll steer me towards some great stuff!

Podcasts (and blogs) about contemporary classical music?

Are there podcasts about the contemporary classical / alt classical / new music / experimental music scene? Particularly interviews with composers and musicians, talk about the music, and so forth; as opposed to playlists of the music itself. WNYC's Soundcheck and other public radio podcasts sometimes touch on this kind of stuff, but I want more! And not just John Adams and John Luther Adams all the time. Blog recommendations also welcome, but podcasts seem like a perfect format for talking about music.

iTunes bugs mix the bourgeoisie and the rebel

What's the best way to keep podcast subscriptions and listens on two Macs and an iPhone synced that supports downloading episodes (i.e., not web-only)? If the answer involves iTunes, I might need an explanation of how to fix it since each copy of iTunes seems to be doing its own thing. I'm not looking for live slinging/transfer of audio to another device since the Macs are in completely different locations and the phone isn't always around.

Recommend guided meditation podcasts, please.

I'm looking for podcasts that have interesting guided meditations. I've found a few meditation podcasts, but they don't seem to have updated in ages. I have an android phone and use Podkicker. I'd like sleep and relaxation themed meditations, preferably less than 50 minutes long.

First words

It would make me so happy to wake up to podcasts in the morning. Do you do this? How? It seems easy enough, but I can't figure out how to configure my iPhone (iOS 7) alarm to play podcasts. The current options it gives me are ringtones or an iTunes song. Is this simply the matter of finding the right app? Thanks!!

Is it possible to search for podcast episodes by topic?

One would think this exists somewhere, so maybe I just didn't do enough googling, but is there a way to search for podcasts or radio segments by topic? Say I want to find a podcast, talk radio segment or recorded lecture tagged with "Philae landing"...how would I go about doing that without googling a specific show like "Science Friday Philae landing"?

Sleeping with Podcasts

For the past couple years I have gone to sleep with podcasts on (usually sports or news podcasts) and find it really difficult to go to sleep without a podcast on. I have tried sound machines and they do not help. No matter how long I sleep, I generally wake up feeling fatigued, and can have brain fog or feel tired and am tired throughout the day. I have never been a particularly great sleeper, but I am at a place that I need to address the fatigue. I am going to go get checked by a sleep doctor in a couple months (switching insurance and travel schedule), but in the meantime I am assessing things I am doing that may cause the fatigue. Does anyone sleep with podcasts on? Could this be an issue? My thought is maybe my brain is semi-engaged because I am listening to the conversation. Total guess, but thought I would reach out and see if anyone else has dealt with this. Thanks!

Looking for French Podcasts (Non-radio)

Hello, I'm looking for some good French podcasts that aren't simply radio broadcasts, but are more conversational/comedy/interview in style.

How do we appropriately ask for t-shirt design ideas on our podcasts?

I run a podcast network, and we're revamping our merchandise. We have no designers on staff, but we have lots of designers in our audiences who love our shows and have great ideas, and we'd like to tap their expertise. I'd like to ask for design idea submissions from designer-listeners on-air without asking for spec work (or seeming to). How, specifically, do we make that call to action - what language should we use? (The work, incidentally, is paid.)

Candid conversations about black-white relations in the US

As a white foreigner who spends much of his time on a college campus where black people are few and far between, I feel like there's a lot I don't understand about black-white relations in the US. I know my history and understand the social and political issues involved reasonably well, but what I'm missing is a sense of how these things play out in the everyday lives of ordinary people. I'd like to hear conversations and stories, in podcast form or the like, that touch on this stuff. The more candid, informal, personal, and no-holds-barred, the better. [more inside]

Podcasts exploring how a topic interesects other areas

One of my favourite Youtube series is Extra Credits. This series is centered around games, but it explores any number of related topics from games in education, the business of making games, careers in the game industry, religion, psychology, social issues.... Are there any other podcasts or video series where the creator has strong expertise in a particular topic, but relates in to a broad range of other areas?

How can I be a well-informed UK voter?

I'm a new UK citizen, and I'd like to stay informed so that I can vote wisely (not just this week but in all elections to come.) Unfortunately, a lot of political coverage seems to focus on "Will talking about this policy help the party win?" while I'm more interested in "Will implementing this policy be good for the country?" So, what podcasts, Twitter feeds, or other resources tend to offer thoughtful, in-depth analysis of different party's positions on various issues? (I'm a big fan of the BBC's "Analysis" podcast, to give an idea of what I'm looking for.") [more inside]
