  1. BBC World Service - Tech Tent, Media Storm

    Just when it seemed modern media houses were finding ways to survive despite consumers expecting content to be “free”, those same consumers — aided by companies like Apple — are taking to online ad-blockers. Now what?

    This episode of BBC’s Tech Tent podcast takes a look at a range of solutions, including Dutch startup Blendle, which thinks micro-payments might be the solution, and paywalls, which almost no one seems to think will solve the problem of diminishing revenues and every greater competition for eyeballs and attention.

    Then there’s a look at a company called Improbable and its SpacialOS that’s simulating an entire city in bits and bytes, a look at robotics and what it could mean for the labour force, and even a quick look at Li-Fi, which promises speeds 100 times that of Wi-Fi. Not bad for 23 minutes of audio.

  2. Combat Ready Kitchen (Gravy Ep. 23)

    Gravy is produced by the Southern Foodways Alliance, an organisation that explores and documents food culture in the Southern states of the USA. This episode goes beyond that geographical context, however, and explores the relationship between the US Military and the country’s food production: more specifically, how the research and development of MREs (Meals Ready to Eat) produced for soldiers has influenced consumer food products across the country. It’s a mildly terrifying, but altogether fascinating episode, and a good intro to the podcast series as a whole.

  3. Emily Best: You Will Find Your People — She Does Podcast

    You know when you meet someone on the internet and you decide you should be best friends, * that is pretty much everyone interviewed on She Does. From to Shine Theory – Ann Friedman to impossibly amazing Anna Sale. Podcasters Elaine Sheldon & Sarah Ginsburg have been ticking off my creative heroes and introducing me to a whole pile more. The intimacy of Elaine & Sarah’s interviews takes you right to the hotel room scamming the last slice of pizza. There was a line from Best talking about her divorce that forever haunts me. I’ll let you find it yourself. This podcast is like bundu bashing through the jungle, lost, desperate and stumbling into your tribe while they sipping icy cold gin & tonics – except your tribe lives on the internet and doesn’t know you yet*.

  4. The Great Eastern Season 5, Episode 3: Public Radio’s Missing Link

    The Great Eastern: Newfoundland’s Cultural Magazine was a satirical radio show from the fictional Broadcasting Corporation of Newfoundland (BCN), that strange and lovely island province off Canada’s east coast.

    The show actually aired on CBC Radio between 1994 and 1999; a fan has curated its curious archives. The Great Eastern makes for oddly compelling listening, with its universe of characters and institutions (and requisite Newfoundland accents).

    Adding another layer, this particular episode is described as a special presentation of an American public radio documentary about the BCN, focusing on its eccentric programming and coal-fired radio transmitter (pictured). The documentary, titled Public Radio’s Missing Link, “won the prestigious Ruminaga Medal at this year’s International Radio Festival in Tutzing.”

  5. 24. Searching for Max Martin | Switched on Pop

    Most people don’t know his name, but Swedish songwriter Max Martin has written more hit music than anyone over the past 20 years. He’s responsible for chart toppers by Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, and the Weekend, yet he manages to stay almost entirely out of the limelight. Switched on Pop hosts Charlie Harding and Nate Sloan examine the structural elements of a typical Martin song, and discuss the songwriter’s surprising influences.

  6. 99% Invisible-120- Skyjacking by Roman Mars | Free Listening on SoundCloud

    A man boards a plane, once it’s in the air, pulls out a gun and demands the plane goes to Cincinnati, the pilot replies ‘Sir, this is the plane to Cincinnati’, the man replies ‘It’s the third time I’ve taken this line and it has not once landed in Cincinnati!’ – this joke made sense in the late 60’s, listen to Skyjacking, an episode about the golden age of plane hijacking and understand why.

  7. Esquire Classics – The Falling Man by Tom Junod

    Few photographs have shocked and terrified me quite like Richard Drew’s image of The Falling Man, taken at the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001. The infamous photo, and Tom Junod’s seminal and sensitive 2003 piece for Esquire (incidentally the magazine’s most-read story of all time) are the topic of the inaugural Esquire Classics podcast – which, like the name suggests, unpacks classic Esquire articles in greater detail.

  8. Women of the Hour - episode 2 body

    I’m not ashamed to admit that I dearly admire Lena Dunham. Sure, she hails from a privileged bubble in Manhattan, but a) we can’t help where we are from, and b) she’s brilliant, irreverent, and unabashedly honest. I recently discovered her new podcast miniseries, and I am eating it up. This particular episode explores women’s relationships with our bodies, and it is filled with incredible stories and conversations about everything from hair to physical disabilities.

  9. ProPublica, An Arrest, a Suicide, a Year Later: The Lasting Tragedy of Kalief Browder

    This podcast probably needs little introduction. Great journalism; pressing topics. In this instalment, New Yorker staff writer Jennifer Gonnerman recounts her reporting on a black teenage boy who killed himself after three years on Rikers Island, without ever being convicted of a crime.
