Great

A nice way to catch up on the days news. Probably the best international news daily podcast.

Great reporting but a little much

Exceptional and balanced reporting. The only fault is that two podcasts a day quickly fills up my feed - with other podcasts I rarely have time to listen to both. If there was a reduced version, I would be very pleased.

Predicting the recent future!

We listen to this show about 5 days to two weeks in the past as a reminder of stories that pop up on our favourite shows from Canada and the CBC. For example, it is Tues. Jan. 15th, 2019, and we are listening to the stories from last week, Tues. Jan. 8, 2019. It is fun, because we already know the outcome of certain stories, and we will “talk back” to the Global News reporters because we know what is going to happen! Yet, there are stories and facts that come from BBC Global News that are not reported anywhere or on any platform in NorthAmerica. BBC is amazing and informed. The stories come from first sources, which is quite rare in Canada, CBC often uses reporters talking to reporters who heard from other reporters. It is second and third sources and sometimes disappointing. Thank goodness for podcasts!
