That should keep you busy for about a year.  Here are some that have been recommended:

  • Preet Bharara, former US attorney who fought corruption, financial fraud, and violent crime, has a podcast about justice and fairness called Stay Tuned.
  • The 538 Podcast is a geekish, number-crunching analysis of what’s going on.
  • Pod Save America is four former aides to President Obama, joined by journalists, politicians, comedians, and activists for an energetic, lefty discussion of challenges posed by the Trump presidency.
