I just heard an interview with Kathy Reichs (Bones) on my local NPR station:

Charlotte Talks: Kathy Reichs And Two Nights

Here's one of my favourite episodes of Australian true crimes, it's about the guy who murdered his wife on their honeymoon by faking a diving accident:

What are they like?  Is the second one fictional?

Yes the second one is fictional. It's totally Sci-Fi. To sum it up, it's basically an NPR-type local radio program for a fictional town called Nigh Vale where all this crazy Sci-Fi stuff seems to keep happening (like a dog park that nobody is allowed in because of hooded figures). I'm going to see a live recording of it in London in October as it's just something different to go and see and both my husband and I really enjoy the podcasts (the same people do quite a few fictional podcasts but I'm trying to go through one at a time until I'm all caught up. Can be an acquired taste and it does take some getting used to the narrator's very NPR-like tone lol.

The first one is exactly as you would imagine. It's like an episode of cold case files where they go through a cold case that is eventually solved. That one I did not like the lady's voice at first who narrates it but she grew on me quite quickly as it was better when she was telling the story than when she was just chatting to do the adverts and stuff.

I just looked through my list of subscriptions and discovered I don't have anything that is fiction except the Archers. 
I will check out the cold case one when I am done with all my other true crime podcasts.

It's relatively new I think (the Cold Case) as there's only like 6 or so out and they come out every Tuesday so I'm always sad when I finish one now because I can't marathon through hundreds while driving like I can with Welcome to Night Vale.

There's another Sci-Fi/Fiction that I've been recommended that isn't the same writers as WTNV called "Hello From the Magic Tavern". I've not listened to any episodes yet but I'm told it's about a guy that falls through a portal behind a Burger King . He manages to be able to broadcast still from the other side and has all these different guests on it. I'm told it's more funny where-as WTNV is funny but at some parts but can get very, very dark!

Here's a good one , it's about what Trump can teach us about constitutional law.  This episode is about the clauses in the constitution that are supposed to stop a president from profiting from his office.  Spoiler: nobody really knows how to interpret that bit of the constitution because we've never had a president where we needed to.  At least he's making America great again when it comes to corruption!

6- The Emoluments Clauses
http://one.npr.org/i/538396167:538396169


The next best episode is about pardons.  Guess what?  It's completely fine for Trump to pardon people by Tweet. 

Can he pardon himself?  Can Jesus heat a burrito in the microwave so hot that even he can't eat it?

Just remembered that, if anybody likes history, somebody I used to work with and his mate made a podcast called Historicool. It's family friendly (at least from the one or two episodes I listened too - silly voices for characters included lol).

I will completely need to check that one out as I love him. He's excellent!

Will need to check this one out too. Read the blurb on the website and it sounds interesting so definitely worth giving it a go.
