One of the best. Wide range of topics and interviews with experts. Bit disappointed in Alina’s rude treatment of the fellow talking about Scandinavia. He received rough treatment for a guest.

SHAMEFUL audio quality

BBC, an operation w/ your history of twchnical quality and world class gravitas oughtta be defunded for casting audio whose interviews sound as though host and guest were speaking in the bottom of a metal a trash can.
