Customer Reviews

The Best

This is a podcast I never miss and I have been collecting them for years and now my son uses them as a research tool for school. The research is great and presented superbly

Backgrounding excellence

This show does something which isn't that common amongst news shows, it takes current issues and then gives the full and rich history that lead to the current state of events. They say those who nothing form history are doomed to repeat it, and this show is going a long way to remedy that problem. An essential podcast if you want to better understand current day events.

Superb. Every time.

Absolutely top-notch journalism here. Keri and Annabelle bring in the most eloquent and unbiased experts in varying fields, and put together a well-structured and interesting podcast every single week. At the end of every episode I feel like I have such a thorough understanding of events in the news. This is just utterly fantastic.
