Great Podcast

I saw that the only other review on here isn't a great one so thought I would offer a counter argument. I think this is a great podcast which is perfect for listening to walking to and from places (for me its my house to university etc) The two presenters are both very fair and simply tell you what should be the week ahead (planned-obviously they can't tell you excactly) and offer good managable analysis of it. It actually gives you the week ahead for the world not just focusing on the UK for example so if there's an election in Chile it will be reviewed Really interesting and I would reccomend it as a must have for all those interested in current affairs and all that that entails.

A concise summary of events

A 15 mins brief on worldwide events scheduled for the forthcoming week. Best listened to on Friday evening/Saturday morning.


Good quick review of the big issues to face us in the week ahead. However I have issues downloading most Economist podcasts on my iPhone.
