I really can't recommend this podcast highly enough. Short, but quality shows, one a week. Something political, and nice and focused. I really enjoyed the last three: the hidden money sloshing around political campaigns, a la 501(c)4s (in the form of "Super PACs"); the contrast between the AIDS and ebola responses; and the convoluted, thoroughly human (tragic) way we've been dealing with unexpected pregnancy. If you're a news junky, or just want a little political analysis on some high level issues every now and then, add DecodeDC.
