One of the Best Podcasts Around!

I love listening to the different perspectives of what's going on in the world today from people living in those countries. Patrick is a wonderful host and brings his own opinions but moderates the conversations with skill and good humor. He has covered some controversial topics such as gun control in America, Brexit, and what's been happening Venezuela. You can tell he's interested in the topics and treats his guest with respect. I look forward to each episode! Merci mille fois!

Nuanced conversations from around the world!

This podcast provides political views and cultural norms from different countries around the world. This is a great thing in the current political climate worldwide. I believe more and more of these conversations are a good thing for all!

Fantastic!

So refreshing to hear people discuss/debate topics in a civil manner. Very informative to hear multiple viewpoints. Keep up the awesome work Patrick (and guests)!
