Best podcast out there
Listen to this everyday while on the train to class. What I love about it is that Peter is very funny but also great and breaking down the issues underlying a news story.
Hearing from the Ambassadors is also really great because they provide varying perspectives on topics.
I’ve always been skeptical about news subscriptions but I’ve really enjoyed getting the podcasts and the news summary each day. Well worth the small monthly fee.
To Peter and the Ambassadors—thank you so much!
Absolutely love it! Great team and interesting topics are covered so simply! I listen to this daily to keep up with commercial awareness
As a junior in the first few years of my career this is a fantastic way to keep abreast of current affairs. I have recommended this to so many people already.
It’s short snappy and very interesting.
Keep up the great work!
