Good news podcasts for the flight?

Economist radio. There's a new one every day so even though they're only ~20 minutes each they can last you a good hour and a half on the plane

I second economist radio. Also try the various APM Marketplace podcasts - multiple each day and a weekend edition. Planet Money is another I listen to, not sure if it's news, but the pieces are always interesting and relevant.

Sorry, just saw that you asked for news ones. In general, NPR and BBC work for me. You can also download Rachel Maddow episodes on itunes for free and watch them. Doubt you're a Maddow fan, but I figured that if you could do it for her show that you could do it for others so I thought that I'd let you know. Anything PBS News Hour would be great too

like

NPR BBC and Economist are the best news sources in general. I love the WSJ and the NYT, but their opinion pages are so agenda driven it's distracting from their solid content.

like

Economist audio edition (through their app) reads you each weeks issue and you can get next weeks issue on Thurs afternoon. All the news you need, not free though
