Customer Reviews

Sagedrum ,

Just shows how out of touch the Brits are with US Politics.

The Economist has no business informing us Americans about our politics. Their editorial commentary is laughably out of touch with the American reality day to day.

미친엎을 ,

Too much advertising, so annoying

They added advertising in the contents so annoying. It ruins their good article and good voice of narrator.

Colinalcarz ,

Things are slipping

What is going on? Today the announcer got the date wrong, the regular drop day had changed, the lead in from the slate to the actual article is longer while the number of articles “sampled” has gone down. My favorite podcast now sounds like it is being run by interns instead of the consummate professionals with which it won my heart years ago. Fix it!
