Absolutely the Best
This program really brings the world to you in one hour. I love the wide range of topics this program covers from political and social issues to cultural ones. Whether you like it or not, the world is becoming more and more connected. It only makes sense to keep up to date with what is going on.
At long last...
I have worked very hard to arrange my schedule around the on-air times for this show for years and years! I am so very pleased to discover that it is finally available as a complete show on iTunes--that too far too long. That being said, what a TERRIFIC PROGRAM!!!
Yes, it's about time
I don't know how long I've waited for The World to come to free podcast. This is the finest in public radio if you haven't already heard it. When you listen to this news program, you will really learn about the world.
