Customer Reviews

Really excellent, smart, funny daily news overview

This is a very fine daily exploration of the news - ignore the other, negative reviews here, which are obviously written by people who either hate The Guardian's politics or are engaged in some sort of negative 'buzz marketing' campaign intended to sabotage this excellent liberal journalism. The truth is that what you will find here is the exact opposite of Fox News and just what readers of the New Yorker or viewers of BBC News will enjoy. The idea that liberal Americans are not smart enough to see through an on-line review that equates a podcast from The Guardian with Fox News or USA Today just shows the intellectual level at which the knee-jerk, anti-liberal campaign operates in this country.

Pretty good

It seems the best podcasts are actually coming from newspapers, and this is no exception. The only problem is that screeching sound at the beginning. That needs to go.

Newsdesk is one of the best news programmes in the pod-world

The Guardian has always had an impeccable reputation as a paper, and now, they've transferred that notoriety to the new technology of Podcasts with wonderful results. Newsdesk provides only the facts without any bias, thus maintaining The Guardian's good reputation. Newsdesk is truly a great news-podcast to listen to every day. And, it's only just one of many great programmes from Guardian Unlimited (I especially like The Ricky Gervais Show-when it's free, Science Weekly and Football Weekly).
