Other national/geographical podcasts like BBC Introducing Mixtape?

BBC Introducing is how the BBC finds, chooses, and broadcasts new music by less-famous UK talent. DJ Tom Robinson hosts The BBC Introducing Mixtape, a weekly radio show that's also a podcast (show notes with timestamps), and it's a great way to discover new music & artists across many genres of pop, rock, rap, & more (95% music, very little talking by the DJ, no ads). Recommend other podcasts like this, especially covering other countries?

I looked at this previous Ask and will be checking out KEXP's Music That Matters and trying to find a podcast for New Sounds, but I'm particularly interested in cross-genre podcasts that specifically showcase indie artists from countries that are not the US.

Try Radio NZ's Music 101 (5 hours every Saturday afternoon) also their worlds of music - more of a global focus, I've written here before that they do everything from shoegaze to Metal to throat-singing - here's a little of the latter from hackedepicciotto, ex Neubauten. Some shows get pretty wild like Tiki Tane's - Saviour Dub, also an interview on same page worth the listen, not safe within ear-shot of right-wingers! There are many items up to to an hour long.

Bandcamp weekly is my go-to.
