Four Incredible Podcasts Everybody Should Listen To

Over the past few weeks, all very much by chance, I've stumbled across four amazing podcasts that have made me rediscover what a powerful storytelling medium podcasting is.

1. The Assasination - An investigation into the death of one of the world’s best known female politicians – Pakistan’s Benazir Bhutto of Pakistan by the freelance reporter Owen Bennett-Jones. The story digs into the deep Pakistani state and reveals what the US and Europe have to do with it.

2. Great Leap Years - The British Comedian Stephen Fry tells the stories behind the great inventions, mainly behind the ones that are driving the ditigal revolution. It's a fascinating look at how our world is changing - for better and worse.

3. Caliphate - The "New York Times" reporter Rukmini Callimachi reveals how she finally tracked down an ISIS recruit, a Canadian born 21 year-old, who was willing to talk about what drew him towards to the Islamic State, and what made him want to run away again.

4. The Habitat - On a remote mountain in Hawaii, there's a fake planet Mars. Six volunteers agree to live here for a year to help NASA understand what life might be like on the red planet. Their only contact to the outside world is an email they use to communicate with the NASA base and a weekly vocal recording with questions from the science journalist Lynn Levy.
