Interesting podcast but

Very interesting podcast, pleasant and a good way to stay informed on what’s going on all around the world. The only drawback is the length of the podcast, I never have the time to finish them. I think that you should make them a bit shorter

Great Podcast

This is in my view the best podcast for following world news. It is just the right length and it reviews news in many countries with relevant interviews. I really love it. Thanks to the BBC for an amazing work.

Excellent mais un peu long

Bonne manière de suivre l’actualité dans le monde. À mon goût un peu long je n’ai jamais le temps d’aller au bout
