Excellent and occasionally mediocre

Most Brookings Events are great with energetic detailed contemporary policy discussions. A small number of events are bland offering only generic information. This seems to depend on the group at Brookings that hosts the event. On the whole, the podcasts are well worth listening to for an insight into current discussion of policy issues.

Great

I really enjoy the Brookings podcasts. The quality of the events and interviews are superior both in production and content to ... other think tanks podcasts.
