Hey man, if you're into John Oliver, definitely check out the Bugle podcast, it's a satirical take on current affairs and besides the wittiness and clever wordplay a really great critique of the global economy. He does it with Andy Zaltzman every 2 weeks or so.

"Mamamasita, donde esta Santa Cleese... The vecto wit da
Bony knees... He comin' down da street wit no choos on his feet... And he's
