I have two good podcast recommendations for you.
Thinking Allowed from BBC Radio 4 is an old standby. I’ve been listening for quite a while. The latest episode brought together a geographer, a social scientists, and a novelist to discuss “Imagination and the City.” The topics each week are varied – from hoodies to boxing to advertising.
Sound Opinions from Chicago Public Radio and American Public Media is brand new for me. I listened for the first time today and was so impressed I had to tell someone. Among other things, they talked to producer Tony Visconti of T. Rex and David Bowie fame.
Both are available on iTunes or from their websites.
