    What’s the point of the G7?

    What’s the point of the G7?

    G7 leaders have been meeting in Germany to discuss a range of issues from inflation to securing energy supplies amid the war in Ukraine – and to display a sense of unity. But with a resurfaced international division between East and West, has the G7 lost its power?

    On the Sky News Daily with Niall Paterson, senior diplomat and national security adviser to David Cameron, Sir Peter Ricketts shares some behind-the-scenes insight in why there is no real replacement for face-to-face diplomacy. Plus, our international affairs editor Dominic Waghorn, in Bavaria, explains the issues leaders at this week’s summit are discussing.

    By-election analysis: What just happened?

    By-election analysis: What just happened?

    Boris Johnson’s reputation as an election winner has come to an end with a double by-election loss and the resignation of Oliver Dowden as party chairman. In Tiverton and Honiton, the Conservatives saw a majority of 24,000 evaporate as the Liberal Democrats triumphed. In Wakefield, the “red wall” constituency won by the Conservatives in 2019 was taken back by Labour.

    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson is joined by deputy political editor Sam Coates in Tiverton, chief political correspondent Jon Craig in Wakefield and political correspondent Tamara Cohen in Westminster.

    Ukraine war: Why the crisis is causing starvation in the Horn of Africa

    Ukraine war: Why the crisis is causing starvation in the Horn of Africa

    Four years of failed rains in the Horn of Africa have led to the worst drought in four decades. Coupled with Russia's war in Ukraine which is pushing up the prices of grain and fuel to unprecedented levels, we’re exploring if a humanitarian disaster is on the horizon.

    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson speaks to our international affairs editor Dominic Waghorn, who’s been in Somaliland, and Sir Mark Lowcock, former UN under-secretary general for Humanitarian Affairs, about the crisis and what can be done to help.

    Are we set for a summer of rail strikes?

    More than 40,000 members of the RMT union, which represents rail workers, are striking over pay and redundancies, bringing much of the country's railway system to a halt. The union has promised more walkouts throughout the summer if the dispute isn't resolved.

    On the Sky News Daily podcast, Niall Paterson speaks to an RMT representative, Conservative chair of the transport committee Huw Merriman, and A-level students who’re struggling to get to their exams.

Great Podcast

Niall has a very professional style of delivering news, getting to the heart of the story whilst fairly hearing out and presenting all sides. These podcasts are going exactly that in more depth for the important issue of the day. Well worth listening to

Thought Provoking Analysis and Experiences

As the war in Ukraine evolves, this podcast gives a thought provoking analysis and shares real life experiences of what’s going on right there on the ground. Presented in a very ethical and fair way. Thankyou.

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.
