Customer Reviews

Horrible quality and subpar intellectual level

Market desperately needs this kind of podcast! I was expecting something fresh and intellectually challenging. Unpleasant surprise. What we get here is a recorded on a cellphone podcast, with sounds of an elevator in the background. What is the worse, however, are the boring and predictable pundits. The leading person seems to be unprepared and lacking any original thought. Loss of time.

Excellent Analytical Dialogue

As an undergraduate student of international relations, foreign policy, and economics, I can say with some credibility that this is one of the better foreign policy podcasts I'm subscribed to. As an American scholar with interest in European perceptions of IR, it's also an invaluable resource for indigenous insight into European politics.

I would highly recommend it.

Some critique: Though infrequent, there is a lack of audibility from some speakers, or a great difference in volume from individual speakers, making listening difficult or unpleasant, on occasion.

good euro perspective of global events

Really good perspective of global events from a European perspective, and really knowledgeable guests. Sound can be a bit tinny at times though but content is brilliant!
