Two from On the Media, one of my favorite shows on NPR:

The Man Who Knew Too Much (MP3)
"In 1965, Vietnamese reporter Pham Xuan An went to work for Time. He was a tireless writer, with an unerring sense for facts amidst the fog of war, and became an invaluable source of information for American readers. Turns out he was simultaneously an invaluable source of information for the North Vietnamese, moonlighting for more than 30 years as a spy."

The Man Time Forgot (MP3)
"The name Henry R. Luce is firmly enshrined in the annals of American publishing. But few remember the legendary Time editor's erstwhile partner, Briton Hadden. And it was Hadden, not Luce, who conceived of the idea not only for Time, but of the 'newsmagazine' itself. Brooke talks to Isaiah Wilner, author of a new biography of the man Luce wiped off the face of history."
