One of my favourite shows

Jake is such an engaging host, and always has really informed guests on the show. I’ve learned so much from listening.

Fascinating

This podcast goes into detail about various conflicts happening around the world, in a way that is accessible if you don’t know much about them. The host takes care not to be partisan or spoon-feed the listener opinions and only presents the facts and analysis.

Volume is way to low

Enjoy listening but the audio is really quiet, the littlest bit of noise drowns it out
