Love a good IR Debate

Some of the best episodes are when John and David have slight disagreements or talk really in depth on hypotheticals because you get these great perspectives without either claiming to win which shows just how balanced and informative the show is. Keep up the good work gentlemen.

Thought provoking for novices and experts

Having started listening to this podcast with little knowledge of international relations I could pick up most of what was talked about and found it educational, having listened for a long time and caught up on a lot of international tensions I am hooked, what a great podcast to engage with the complexities of a globalised earth.
