Mesmeric

Fascinating audio documentaries from around the world, so beautifully subtitled that watching the words dance across the screen feels nigh on mesmeric at times. Fills a huge gap not just in the podcast world, but the culture broadly.

Groundbreaking

Radio Atlas is such a simple and wonderful idea. Take the best non-English language radio features from around the world and make them into videos with English translations. Foreign films where the pictures are created in your own mind. Just beautiful.
