A Fascinating Exploration of Current Events

This podcast is one of the most insightful and interesting news and politics shows that I have come across. Each episode is only 20 minutes long, so it's easy to listen to while still still offering in-depth detail about current events, political movements, and social ideas. Current events from all over the world are discussed and explored in detail, and the reporting is always done on-the-spot in foreign countries. This podcast is a fascinating and insightful way to discover stories from around the world that you wouldn't hear on a typical newscast here in Canada.


Love this podcast. Interesting subjects, easy to listen to, nice and concise. Keep it coming.
