Recensioni dei clienti
If you want to know more about what’s happening in Europe, then you must follow this podcast. Sometimes there are some problems with the audio.
I’m a passionate european and I resented the lack of podcasts in my feed about european politics compared with the one about US politics. So I really like this one, but sometimes I found that they are a little harsh with the EU, I would like a little more time dedicated to thumbs up moment and fewer to WTF (at least they could balance the two segment to be more ore less the same length). But all in all I really enjoy the podcast
it can improve
Politico.eu is a guarantee of high quality journalism, so it is their EU Confidential podcast. However, to reach the top they might improve the rhythm of the talkings and background music (the intro jingle awful).
