The Best Daily News Podcast

The Intelligence from the Economist is the best of the now-many daily news podcasts out there from major new organizations. It avoids three pitfalls that I dislike in many daily podcasts (1) It is not America-centric (though it does address the major US stories when appropriate); (2) the host does not pretend to be dumber than he or she is in order to ask questions as a surrogate for the listener, and (3) it is unbiased, but not never falls into false equivalence (those latter 2 failings are what finally drove me to unsubscribe from NY Times' The Daily). Jason Palmer, the host, is informed, urbane, and witty.

My First Choice Each Weekday

If you have only twenty minutes for podcasts, spend them here. Thoughtful commentary on a wide range of subjects. I feel smarter (or at least better informed) after listening to Jason Palmer and the Economist reporting team. Highly recommended.
