Fantastic Stories

An elegant show that lets reporters tell extraordinary first-person narratives, in their own words. Often sad, terrifying and occasionally mysterious and funny. Always intriguing.

History buffs, lovers of great storytelling and anyone who’s ever used CultureGrams or the CIA World Factbook for a school project should enjoy this.

Aleays interesting

I cannot remember a time when I haven't listened to FOOC, but of course now it is easier than ever - you can download the podcast anytime anywhere. Real insights to what it is actually like to be in those countries all over the world where the BBC sends its formidable reporters, who instead of habging around in hotels talking to other reporters actually get out and walk among and talk with the people who live in that country, no matter how fraught with sadness and danger that might be (and also, it must be said, lhappiness and laughter as well).
