Woo! Found a steam so I can watch the 500 in the UK. It is always so jarring how much more advertising and filler it has compared to any sports coverage over here.

Would of mentioned a lot of what has been mentioned above. Looking at my feeds a couple of BBC Radio feeds I can recommend:

More Or Less which is awesome if you are nerdy in anyway about numbers.

Reith Lectures bit like TED talks but much more indepth and has been going on since 1948.

The Infinite Monkey Cage radio show that is a mix of science/comedy.
