Listened to my first 3 episodes last night. Unbiased, non hysterical analysis of current affairs. Will be listening to the back catalogue for sure.

Brilliant way of getting a really good, well researched analysis of what is happening beyond the headlines. Always clearly presented and balanced. And always thought provoking. Thank you so much.

Brilliant insight into behind the headlines!

Thoroughly enjoyed this and really interesting to get behind what I see on the news. I will definitely have this as a go to for my news from now on!
