[listening] What podcasts do you listen to?

I’ve been listening to Intrigue (BBC Radio). It’s a series of investigative reports available as a podcast.

Season 1 - Murder at the Lucky Holiday Hotel - murder and conspiracy in China
Season 2 - the Ratline - Nazi escapes post WW2
Season 3 - Tunnel 29 - escape tunnels from East Berlin
Season 4 - Mayday - murder of James Le Mesurier, the founder of the White Helmets in Syria

I’m currently midway through season 4. They’re pretty fascinating.
 
The News Meeting by Tortoise is worth a listen. 3 journalists at Tortoise pitch the stories that they feel should lead the News. They analyse them and then their editor decides the run order and explains why. 30 min and fascinating.
 
The Hall of Blue Illumination. Advice and guidance on running a game in the Empire of the Petal Throne on Tekumel, and interviews with people who were part of the original groups in the 1970s and 1980s. Relaxed pace, plenty of interesting anecdotes and ideas, and the occasional revelation of deep secrets in the setting.

Breakfast in the Ruins, originally concentrating on Michael Moorcock's fiction, but has expanded into 70s and 80s pulp generally. I've been listening to the episodes featuring crustacean bothering schlockmeister Guy N Smith. The presenters invariably get stuck into some strong drink and you can hear them slurring their words at times, but as is the way with drunken inspiration they do come up with the occasional piece of genius off kilter insight. Made me laugh quite a few times e.g. their interpretation of the crabs as being like an unruly gang of yobs.
