Terrific

Insightful and informative interviews and conversations.

Insightful and diverse

Contrary to popular belief, this is not from NPR. It is produced by the -other- San Francisco public radio station, KALW. You hear about many things from around the world from geo-politics to local issues.

I especially recommend the Friday Media Roundtable. You'll get updates from reporters around the world who both praise and criticize the media and tell you many things you won't hear in the mainstream. By the way, Fox News -is- the main stream.
