Customer Reviews

Informative and engaging

I am a co-founder of NewVote, a nonpartisan charity working to use technology to enhance democracy. I have found this podcast to be an invaluable resource for my exploration and research of the area. I love the focus on inspiring others to improve democracy. Nivek Thompson has managed to pull in world-class leaders in democracy and her questioning highlights the tensions and grey areas in democractic schools of thoughts incredibly well. This is one awesome podcast. Highly recommend for anyone interested in politics - particularly political science students! I think listening to a few of these episodes should be part of the compulsory course work at university!


Loving the different perspectives I'm hearing and the podcast is really well put together. Against the sense of loss and sadness of 2016, this is kicking 2017 off to feelings of hope and optimism. Can't help but feel I'm on the start of a journey here!

Substance with this media diet

Current political events, particularly in the United States, are, frankly, worrying. This podcast series is an important contribution to the discourse on the state of politics and public contribution. It is fascinating to hear, for example, a high-profile politician discuss these issues in a considered, candid and opinionated way. And it is reassuring to know that interesting media can be achieved without five second sound bites! Highly recommend this for those who want substance in their media diet.
