A welcome commuters’ companion

One cannot help but be stimulated by the tech news, the political coverage, and the business stories featured on the Economist. The presenters are erudite and punchy and the stories engaging albeit brief.

Earlier problems with the audio (base volume fluctuated greatly between episodes) seem to have largely been corrected. I very much look forward to Palmer and Cukier among others and of course, the peerless McAvoy.

The news is great

The background music is annoying

Insightful and delightful

How interesting to hear The Economist’s correspondents delve into their coverage. Always interesting reports with hard facts backing them up. Mr. Palmer’s word play on The Intelligence is delightful as is his and Mr. Cukier’s passionate optimism when covering innovation and science. I never miss any of these episodes.
