I recently discovered the WW2 Podcast, and it is excellent. Well worth a listen. It is presented by Englishman Angus Wallace who talks each episode with an expert historian on a particular topic from WWII. The topics covered are not your usual, and they cover the stories in depth and really well. It's top quality stuff. You can find it on iTunes and at their website plus they're on Facebook.
Some very good episodes I have so far listened to cover the British Auxiliary Units (the planned Resistance should the invasion come, an amazing little known story which I did know a bit about but this covers so much more), plus the 1942 Java Sea Campaign, and the Angels of the Underground (civilian western ladies who managed to not get interned by the Japanese and were running supply lines to the POW's inside the camps, an amazing story!).

The latest episode of the WW2 Podcast covers the de Havilland Mosquito, with some discussion of the happenings here in New Zealand. Angus Wallace's guests are John Lilly, Ross Sharp and Nick Horrox of The People's Mosquito.
