Best *global* news broadcast

This is an outstanding summary,
roughly 25 minutes twice a day, of news from around the world—and I do mean around the world. You’ll get US politics but unlike NPR it’s not obsessive-compulsive about US American news. Instead you get a lot from Africa, South Asia, Latin America and elsewhere. I really appreciate it and find it invaluable—a great way to start the day, end it, or while doing chores in between. Yes, it’s not perfect and yes it reflects UK interests and biases but there’s nothing else remotely as good out there.

Top notch and professional...the way news used to be in the US

I listen religiously to this podcast, because most news outlets here barely mention world news outside the US.

And if you aren’t convinced, please review the one star conspiracy-laden reviews and you will see why the BBC global news podcast focuses on reporting facts. Thank you all!

Maybe lower the ambient sounds.

Great podcast. However, Many people listen to it while they’re driving. Some of the ambient sounds like police sirens can be very disorienting and distracting. Just a suggestion.
