Customer Reviews

Really love this podcast

Great to see a podcast that is so informative and tries to rise above common misconceptions and myths. Listens to the one on Cuba and loved it. Keep up the brilliant work. Bob, London, UK.

A little something for everyone

This podcast runs the gamut of in-depth analysis and discussion to lighter exchanges on both basic and rare facts about countries...All with a twist on the question of democracy. Perfect!


Global does a great job of providing enough context that listeners can start from 0 and still understand high level discussions of current events in the counties discussed. However, while the context can be explained for listeners who might have limited knowledge, for listeners who are experts in topics, there is still fascinating insight and analysis of current events- great podcast on global affairs for anyone!
