    The new COVID variants: Can we ever end the pandemic?

    The new COVID variants: Can we ever end the pandemic?

    There have been three new variants of COVID that have had a startling impact on the number of cases. They have been detected thousands of miles apart, one in Brazil, one in South Africa, and one in the UK.

    This came as no surprise to scientists. Since the virus was first detected, it has mutated approximately 4,000 times. However, if the virus keeps mutating, will we ever end the pandemic?

    In this episode, host Jayne Secker is joined by Sir Mark Walport, previous government chief scientific adviser to explain what we know so far about the new variants and Sky News correspondent, Ashna Hurynag, tells us what the situation is like in the city of Manaus.

    Biden’s America - power of the Senate

    Biden’s America - power of the Senate

    Joe Biden’s swearing in as the 46th president of the United States marks the start of a new era in US politics. But will it lead to a more "united" America?

    His administration takes over at a time when the country is still very much divided and grappling with the COVID pandemic.

    As well as the House of Representatives, the Democrats now control the White House and the Senate on Capitol hill – the scene of recent rioting that resulted in security being bolstered for the inauguration.

    On this edition of the Sky News Daily podcast with Dermot Murnaghan, former Democrat Ohio State Senator Capri Cafaro shares her experience of working inside the Capitol and what it means to Americans.

    We are also joined by Sky’s diplomatic editor Dominic Waghorn and former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman as we discuss the Senate’s power and prestige.

    The climate crisis: A royal campaign

    The climate crisis: A royal campaign

    The British Royal Family has been at the forefront of the campaign to tackle climate change for over 50 years.

    Most recently, Prince Charles announced his “Terra Carta” principles, calling on businesses to act now to tackle the climate crisis.

    It follows the £50m Earthshot initiative launched by Prince William to encourage people to solve sustainability issues.

    But what impact does the Royal Family actually have on the environmental crisis?

    And do their pledges make a difference?

    On this edition of the Sky News Daily podcast Dermot Murnaghan is joined by Ed Davey, the co-director of the World Resources Institute, who worked with the Prince of Wales on a number of climate initiatives, and Sky’s royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills.

Missing negative feedback

Twice I have left slightly critical reviews of this show and both seem to have been removed or hidden.

Hardly surprising, really.
