straight up facts

i really like this podcast, I've listened to around 16 so far. I've read the other reviews saying they don't do much analysis, I think that's good as they are presenting facts, telling us straight up what is going on & adding opinion to that may muddy the waters. I listen to podcasts while doing other things & sometimes my attentions wanes in & out, if they suddenly started presenting their opinion I may think that is fact. They get specialists from the rest of the ABC to come in & explain stuff, the one on what will happen to the men on Manus was good but I hate how quickly people forget. Reza Barati's name is burned onto my soul & now it's 'why won't they leave?' Oh that's right a bunch of locals came in & killed someone. anyway, the podcast is good.

Ear catching

Very interesting topics, answering all the same questions I find myself asking the radio when I listen to the latest news.
This podcast for me, is like an Australian version of the BBC inquiry -also another great podcast.
Thanks team for doing all the research and giving me a neat packet of answers, so I don’t have to dig for it myself.
