Suggestions for high quality podcasts that can act as a source of intelligent discussions on current affairs, politics, foreign policy, economy etc?


I am looking for high quality sources of actually informative intellectually unbiased and rich discussions involving expert guests and/or other interesting persona capable of level-headed conversations. I prefer the podcast format, but can also do with YouTube channels that do this. The way the Indian media operates discourages me from even wanting to be informed but obviously I don't want to be uninformed, so I'm seeking the best alternatives out there. Inputs appreciated!
