At last, an independent view from the US.

As a new listener from London, UK. I find these podcasts both refreshing and reassuring. Over here we get a terribly distorted view that there is collusion between the 4th estate and Trump. NPR does not fall into that category. Incisive, diversified and consistent. It’s the last authentic American voice to be heard internationally.

Listener from the UK

Of course the world is interested in US politics, but finding a pod that presents a reasonably unbiased view is difficult (I know, I’ve been through a few!). Have been a listener to NPR since the election of DJT and the politics presented through the cast is mostly fair, sufficiently detailed and voiced by a clearly knowledgeable bunch of journalists. Only the rather ‘shouty’ occasional host Mara Liasson demonstrates her very lefty views, which is a shame as I cannot confidently suggest the political preferences of the other hosts (the pod would probably be better off without Liasson, in honesty). Anyway, definitely worth a try if you’re seeking a reasonably middle ground US political cast.

What’s the point

In looking at both sides, both sides.
Sometimes you have to make a judgment on the objective truth - rather than give cover to liars by repeating those lies unchallenged.
