Keeping me sane
A wide range of expert voices & opinions, not always in agreement with each other. Regular hosts but not always the same person. Well delivered and an hour of my time well spent daily.
Update November 4th 2022. Love the magazine but…
Awful review with Chris Can’t help themselves….. Love the ‘left’…. Iove Biden….hate Brexit and support the war in Ukraine no matter what!!!! I (still:- great magazine) am a subscriber to the monocle magazine and do like their news but now just more and more obvious that the Globalist , the Briefing and the Daily just find it difficult not to be Pro-brexit, Pro-Biden it drives the entire narrative (essentially just the same as the BBC sadly)
I have been listening to the podcast for over a year. It has always been biased, however, it seems it has become more of a propaganda media.
Everyone who has some conservative views are portrayed as far right, while far lefts are portrayed as liberals.
Different political beliefs are normal, lies not. Tweaking the truth is disgraceful. That is enough for me here. Unsubscribing.
