    That's a tough one! Many of the questions are about stories I skipped or just briefly looked at.

    BTW, BBC has introduced a great U.S.-targeted tv news program: BBC World News America.
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

      I listen to BBC World Service and BBC Radio 4 on
      the internet. I find when foreign countries generate
      programing targeting American audiences they tend
      to "pander" to our tastes, attitudes, and culture.

      About 10 years ago, I wrote a short article accusing
      Radio Netherlands of pandering to American audiences
      and caught all sorts of negative flack from the
      Netherlands.

      Today, I also enjoy listening to Radio New Zealand
      International, Radio Australia, CBC, and Radio Japan
      (NHK) -- all on the internet.

      May be I'll post some links.

      BTW, if you miss a story on NPR or just want to hear the
      story again, go to http://www.npr.org to listen to
      the story at your own convenience. I do this often.

        I haven't found the BBC America TV news to be pandering. From the bits I've seen it's a nice rundown on world news events of the day.

        I like listening BBC World Service, too, but it's frustrating because I can't find a way to stream it through iTunes which would in turn stream it through Airport and, finally, through my speakers. There are BBC podcasts I can stream through iTunes -- but not live World Service. Or maybe there's a way to make Real Player stream through Airport. I don't know if you use iTunes or Airport, but if you do, any tips?

        Radio Netherlands does stream through iTunes so I end up listening to it every now and then.

        Somtimes I like listening to Charlie Rose shows while I work. They're not as noisy as a lot of radio shows.

        Links would be good!

          Darcy:

          Since you enjoy the BBC and Radio Netherlands, you'll probably
          like listening to World Radio Network, click http://www.wrn.org/
          to listen.

          Charlie Rose and Terri Gross Fresh Air on NPR are my favorite
          interview programs. I watched Charlie Rose interview Willie
          Nelson and Kris Kristofferson on YouTube the other day.

            Thanks!!! I'll check it out.

            Kris Kristofferson has led quite the life.
