    Manchester disunited: A city's battle for clean air

    Manchester disunited: A city's battle for clean air

    More than 40 towns and cities in the UK have unsafe air pollution levels, according to the World Health Organisation. Not just a problem for our climate, but for public health too.

    On this week's episode of Sky News ClimateCast Katerina Vittozzi takes Anna Jones on a trip around Manchester.

    It comes as the region's leaders ask the government to pause and review parts of the Clean Air Zone plan. Katerina explores why, as she visits Shepherdess Jade Hutchinson (and her sheep) who has been protesting against the zone.

    12-year-old Maksim however, says air pollution is hindering his asthma and the clean air zone is needed now more than ever.

    So, can Manchester and other cities make the green transition without damaging livelihoods? We ask Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham.

    Buildings for all: Women pioneers in the construction industry.

    Women make up just over half of the UK’s population, but fewer than one-fifth of those working in construction.

    On the Sky News Daily podcast, Roma Agrawal, the engineer behind London’s Shard tells Dermot Murnaghan why she believes we’re all born engineers, and award-winning architect and founder of Architects for Change, Sumita Singha, explains why more diversity will result in buildings that are better for everyone.

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.

An informative listen every day

I started listening to the Sky News Daily wanting to branch out from my usual roster of news podcasts. It’s a great listen; always informative and intriguing. Not too long, although I notice just long enough when the topic warrants it. I enjoy that each day focuses on one topic, explaining the context and exploring the significance of it. I much prefer it to other daily podcasts (sorry BBC Newscast) where it feels like at Sky, the team presents the news seriously. I can go ahead with my day informed about *the* story of the day. A recommended source for your daily news.

Very good reporting

Even for a Murdoch owned outfit, this podcast is pretty well balanced and has incredibly clear sound compared to other news site podcasts. Obviously Murdoch can afford higher quality microphones!
