"Dolge is an anarchist, an atheist and a communist." – Judge Hardin
Somehow I have never heard of Alfred Dolge -- an inventor of musical instruments and an industrial-socialist who built a utopian town in New York around a felt factory. This audio program by Dave Hilowitz tells the story of the the rise and fall of Dolgeville.
The 1A radio program on NPR gave anarchism a fair spot.
On the whole I thought several of the questions and answers were good, and it was nice that they got actual anarchist writers to go on. Though I think I disagree with William C.'s first answer. He implies that revulsion to anarchism is based on a misconception that mistakes the anarchist terrorists from a hundred years ago as the entirety of anarchism. But I don't think there is any level of peacefulness that would make anarchism palatable to those who can't see beyond their present society. If the Galleanists had never set off any bombs, Trump would still be seeking to demonize anarchism, because it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a someone who is rich to enter an anarchist society.
This is an audio documentary series. I've listened to the first two episodes. It is well produced, and I understand Trump a tiny bit better now.

Citations Needed is good.
"The press, both local and national, humanizes some victims of state or corporate violence, while demonizing others. Despite good intentions and seemingly without noticing, the media all too often create tiered systems of moral worth by trying to find 'the perfect victim.'"
I'm currently listening to this radio series by David Cayley on Simone Weil (nearly 5 hours total length).
This American Life did a good bit on a free speech kerfuffle at the University of Nebraska where a sincere and sympathetic teenager tabling for the right-wing Turning Point USA was confronted and berated by a staff member/grad student for being a 'neofascist Becky'. But the program does not merely paint TPUSA in a sympathetic light, it also points out some ways in which the rights of white students are disproportionately protected.
The program also strongly implies that the grad student in question (who was removed from her teaching position after the incident) is affiliated with the activist group (or 'brand' for lack of a better term) called Betsy Riot. It looks like a liberal antifascist and anti-gun group which describes its members as "feminist patriots" and "punk patriots" (so maybe emphasis on the liberal). https://betsyriot.com/

Episode 22: Trumpwashing -- How the Media Uses Trump to Launder Our Criminal Past by Citations Needed Podcast
Episode of the Citations Needed podcast on the trope of using Trump to justify the more subtle version of the same thing.
"The desire to revamp the image of the pre-Trump Republican party and the United States in general – a concept Ali Abunimah coined “Trumpwashing” - is a favorite rhetorical tic of Russia-obsessed democrats and centrist extremists who’s primary charge is treating the phenomenon of Donald Trump as anomalous from American history, rather than its most pure, and even logical, manifestation."
