Best foreign policy podcast!
One of the best podcasts out there and probably the best foreign policy podcast. Eric is well informed and brilliant!
Brilliant Left Radio
Hear about the world today from an unfiltered lens. Yes to all the hard questions - on racism, imperialism, and unrestrained finance. Understand what's happening in the world today from a perspective that respects people's humanity.
So Great, Independent, Insightful
Counterpunch Radio is honest and left discussion about real issues - it’s what you wish news really was, back when you were an idealistic kid wanting to learn more about how society works and how to make change in the world.
Leading left figures - people who challenge the way things are with new methods and thoughts - discuss not just with facts, but bring the context of they experience and perspective. It is so informative in a way that reading alone lacks.
The host is also very enjoyable. He strikes balance between letting his interviewers have their say, challenging them, and keeping them on point.
