Thought-provoking and incisive

Love Helen Thompson's insight and analysis! And David's modest proposals about voting age.

If Montaigne did a podcast ...

Sagacious stuff. Measured, gives you room to think. The nearest podcast yet to reading Montaigne or Ralph W. Emerson.

Nice podcast from across the Atlantic

I listen in the US to keep up with UK politics and get a UK perspective on US politics.
