Radio 5 has a new podcast called Eye of the Storm. They are interviews with people who have been in difficult situations. I heard a few when they were broadcast. Some will find them interesting [I did] but they may help English learners listening skills. They are a normal speed conversation so not for new learners. I am happy to help with vocabulary. They have all been in the news at some point so can be found on the net.
Gerald Ratner and 'conkergate' are good ones to start with.
