Re-runs, really?

Usually one of my must-listen podcasts, however, posting re-runs when there is such a wealth of engaging new podcast material available is a mistake. I want my news and current affairs listening to be just that - news and current.

Great! Particularly for political investigations.

Amazing show. The research and production value is one of the best. Not particularly interested in some of the shows but anything on American Politics is so good.
