Podcasts

I found a BBC podcast that is less biased than the normal stuff flowing from the BBC content factory. The Inquiry podcast examines current affairs topics with 4 "experts" offering insight into the matter.  The time constraints of the podcast format prevents diving too deep or real comprehensive coverage, but it's still interesting.

If you're itching to send off flaming emails filled with vitriol and accusations of satanic ancestry, then you'll enjoy some of those by Sam Harris.  Actually, his are refreshingly enjoyable.  They always include calm discussion of (sometimes) incendiary topics.  His recent guests include Charles Murray and Gary Taubes.  One of my favorite Sam Harris podcasts is What do Jihadists Really Want
