Customer Reviews


An amazing set of lectures. Highly recommended and possibly the best podcasts on itunes. Make the time to listen to it.


Definately the best podcast I've heard and consistently so. There is such a variety of topics. I love listening and I tell everyone I can to listen.

Excellent in-depth discussion

Like Background Briefing (from ABC Radio National as well) Big Ideas is about discussing a topic. Unlike Background Briefing the objective here is to explore the ranging debate in an issue, rather than explain the issue. Usually the program supplies a lecture/s on the subject area. It is a much longer program because of it. But if you are interested in the topic then you are rewarded with an excellent and engaging education on what it is all about. One to pick and choose your targets to get the best out of it.
