For 50 years, Washington Week has been the most intelligent and up to date conversation about the most important news stories of the week. Washington Week is the longest-running news and public affairs program on PBS and features journalists -- not pundits -- lending insight and perspective to the week's important news stories.

As a busy professional I don't have the time to digest a lot of critical reviews of political issues/events so it helps hearing candid discussions such as this. I enjoyed the 12/23/05 episode concerning Bush and pertinent 2005 events. There were 3-4 different reporters/columnists sharing their political views. I found it very enlightening and look forward to future episodes.
A Podcast Must
Washington Week inspired me to get an iPod. Every week hearing Gwen Ifill mention the podcast - I thought it would be great to listen to the show since I frequently have a long drive. It's been great. It moves and isn't partisan. Just a rundown of the week's events from the reporters that cover the story.
Excellent Broadcast Journalism
I discovered this show a few months back and have never missed it since. What a novel concept - a news program where intellegent, informed guests interact and discuss top news topics in an informative, RESPECTFUL way. No yelling, no hype, no fabricated confrontations and Hardball-esque showting matches. Thank God for PBS!
