BAGHDAD BROADCASTING CORPORATION takes on Tehran: Frances Harrison, a lovely intelligent journalist from Cambridge and presently the Beeb's correspondent in Tehran, recounts what it's like on her beat in an account not lacking for either humour or wit - it's available as the latest in the World Service's From our Foreign Correspondent series of podcasts. In general, Auntie along with NPR are at the forefront (unlike, ahem, some) of making intelligent, supremely listenable content available in podcast form for convenient listening on the way up to visit the goat. Or, treadmill, for those of you who live in the real world. Or for other reasons haven't got a goat to visit.

Also worth listening to in podcast form - BBC's recent series on the future prospects and promises of the larger developing countries, Brazil, Russia, India and China, the so-called BRIC nations. Though personally, and perhaps it's because it's roundabouts lunchtime, I prefer the BLT nations of Brazil, Lebanon, and Turkey.
