Good pod

An easy listen but it’s made for America so you have to adjust; short episodes and lots of advertisements. They also talk exclusively in old fashioned measurements, feet, lbs, ounces, Fahrenheit etc.

Ideal podcast

I really enjoy these Consider This podcasts. From overseas (UK in this case) they are a good length, just right to cover one particular topic. Well produced, factual!!!

If you enjoy hand wringing hushed commentating

Don’t ever forget it’s really about the reporter and their journey.
