Unbiased questions

Pro: While sometimes I might not agree with the points of view of guests, I am glad to listen to other views. What I really like is that Jason never gives away his view in the tone of his questions. Very rare. The questions are intelligent, and clarifying. Also a very gentle voice and humor.

Con: I frequently have binged several issues. The volumes from episode to episode don’t match and I have to adjust mine. It’s very jarring. Sometimes the intra-episode music overrides the talk.

Audio production is bad

The audio production is really bad—the host/interviewer sounds entirely different from those being interviewed. This only works when the host is narrating a story and is otherwise so distracting! Come on, Economist! Surely you could afford decent production!

Engaging and Informative!

I really enjoy listening to Jason Palmer’s voice; it adds a nice touch to the podcast, along with the really good transition background music. The content itself is just as great and gives dynamic perspectives on events around the world. Palmer asks really good questions that help create a good overview on every topic.
