    How significant is Pope Francis's visit to Iraq?

    How significant is Pope Francis's visit to Iraq?

    Pope Francis is the first head of the Roman Catholic Church to travel to Iraq.
    At the start of his trip, the Catholic leader's appealed for common ground among religious groups.
    He was speaking at a meeting between people of different faiths in the ancient city of Ur, a significant site for Christians, Muslims and Jews.
    Earlier, he met Iraq's top Shia Muslim cleric in Najaf.
    The pope's visit is meant to spotlight the heavy toll that years of war, repression and instability have taken on the country’s now-diminished Christian communities.
    Can this visit appease the concerns of Iraq's Christians.

    Anne Herzberg - Legal Advisor, NGO Monitor

    So who is right?

    Presenter: Rob Matheson

    Samantha Vanderslott - Oxford Vaccine Group

Constantly cutting guests off

3 guests is far too many for a 20 minute podcast, content is fascinating but unlistenable due to the constant interruptions and you can just feel the host waiting for the opportunity to cut in.
Very disappointing as I though I had found that geopolitical podcast I have looking for.
