Finally - a journalist who’s not afraid to ask tough questions

I listen to Mehdi religiously every week. He is one of the few journalists who is not afraid to ask politicians (even ones he likes like Ilhan) hard hitting question and then ask it AGAIN when the politician tries to dodge a direct answer. Mehdi is BRILLIANT. My only criticism of him is that he needs to learn to quit interrupting everyone and talk over them. Not polite.

A Bernie pod

Thought this was a learning pod and turns out it’s a Bernie propaganda.

One of the best

I listen to a fairly wide range of podcasts and am a newcomer to Deconstructed. Mehdi Hasan is truly excellent as are his guests and contributers. His comments and observations put a straightforward view on current events and politics. No hype, shouting or cheap shots. Definately one of the very best podcasts.
