Have loved this podcast for years always great, but the recent New Orleans series is simply incredible journalism. Thank you guardian!
Incredible reporting and storytelling
Have been a listener and fan since the Guardian launched this brilliant daily show. It’s been the 2 day ‘Searching for the Shadow Man’ which has astonished me and touched me at a deep level. Truly reporting at its very finest, just outstanding. Thank you 🙏🏼
So angry at the ‘Putin’s dilemma’ episode 11/5/22
I have been following The Guardians coverage of the horrors in the Ukraine since day 1 and want to commend you in the quality and accuracy of your coverage - the sources have been authoritative and the reporting restrained in terms of combat info and speculation on tactics. What a shock then to hear the appalling podcast today on ‘Putins Dilemma’ by the Australian journalists. Wild with uninformed conjecture and full of audio clips where they give the false propaganda speeches Putin ‘might have given instead’ in full. Are these two idiots aware of how the episode can now be soundbited to announce russian successes in the ukraine? The kind of mindless, self-obsessed amateur ‘investigative journalism’ you have otherwise steered clear of in your coverage of the Ukraine war. Crass stupidity. So angry.
