Culturally Rich & Highly Entertaining
A podcast I've listened to off and on for ten years, it manages to unearth unique stories from all sectors of Europe's great complexity and tell them in ways that both intrigue and delight. As one not able to travel as much as he would like, it's immensely pleasurable to ride along with Inside Europe's tour of the continent's monumental diversity and wonder. Exceptional!
good content, awful format
Love the stories this podcast covers, it's a colorful and fascinating mix. But the show's format is so tedious with the multiple, minutes-long, bombastic music interruptions and the constant need for the host to announce his name and location (as if we don't know where BONN is). The constant interruptions are distracting and make this hard to listen to in full.
Europe Inside Out
DW’s Inside Europe provides a revealing look into the political, social & cultural EU. Their coverage of Brexit from an EU perspective has been helpful in understanding the impact and nuances of this major econo-socio-political event on the lives of EU citizens and British subjects alike. Human interest stories provide insight into cultures of nations whose lifestyles are seldom covered elsewhere. Overall excellent reporting by seasoned correspondents who are well prepared and knowledgeable about their assignments and geography.
I highly recommend it as a reliable alternative news source and hope it continues to broadcast for many years to come.
