Quote from: milk on November 23, 2020, 08:36:18 PMI've been listening to Dan Carlin's Hard Core History - the series on the war in the pacific, "Supernova in the East." I find it riveting. It's not the first series of his I've gone for and he's generally very thorough and entertaining. It's good. I recommend it.

It's still going strong and I've still got the highest regard for it:https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qykl/episodes/playerA number of the Guardian"s "Long Read" essays get turned into audio as podcasts, and I try to hear as many of those as I can:https://www.theguardian.com/news/series/the-audio-long-readUntil recently I was enjoying a great many interviews with academic authors on The New Books Network, but they've had some kind of meltdown and are currently in limbo.For dealing with the Trump era there are these, all of which are in the format of interviews with experts on whatever issue is under discussion - I have no interest in a political podcast that is just one or two people sounding off with nothing more than their own spin, no matter how smart they are:Preet Bharara's Stay Tuned:https://cafe.com/stay-tuned-podcast/David Axelrod's The Axe Files:https://edition.cnn.com/audio/podcasts/axe-filesDavid Plouffe's Campaign HQ:https://shows.cadence13.com/podcast/hq-plouffeThe Ezra Klein Show:https://www.vox.com/ezra-klein-show-podcastYasha Mounk's The Good Fight:https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-good-fight/id1198765424A trio of regulars on random topics in cultureTyler Cowen's Conversations With Tyler:https://medium.com/conversations-with-tylerDavid Parsons' The Nostalgia Traphttps://www.nostalgiatrap.com/episodesEric Weinstein's The Portal:https://art19.com/shows/the-portalA History one I've been following:Liz Covart's Ben Franklin's World:https://benfranklinsworld.com/A couple on Bob Dylan:"Is It Rolling, Bob?":https://play.acast.com/s/isitrollingbobtalkingdylan"Pod Dylan":http://fireandwaterpodcast.com/show/pod-dylan/one on the Beatles:"Something About The Beatles":https://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/one more general:"My Favorite Album"https://jeremydylan.net/podcast

Quote from: SimonNZ on August 27, 2021, 03:40:42 PMSurely others here have podcasts they listen to and could recommend...?Anyway, I've just stumbled on an interesting one not yet finished which is author Iain Dale following up the publication of his book on the Prime Ministers of Britain with interviews with each of the 55 authors who wrote essays in it on each of the 55 PMs, getting them to expand on their thoughts about each of their subjects. The episodes do not follow the chronological order.The Prime Ministers

Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on January 04, 2022, 08:36:58 AMI haven't listened to these podcasts, but have been keeping an eye on both the Epstein story and her arrest and trial. I trust that you have heard what charges she has been convicted of Irons?Speaking of which, I wonder whether or not Prince Andrew will ever be tried here in the US? His lawyers are trying to get his case dismissed: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-59865102PD
