Great podcast, but your translations are not done well

I’m referring especially to the last two episodes of GPS. When interviewing Olena and Volodomyr Zelinsky, playing the original audio quietly in the background while the interpreter speaks, is very distracting and difficult for those of us with hearing and auditory processing issues. I could not follow those interviews at all. Overall, I love Fahreed and the podcast.

My favorite show

My favorite show on CNN. Very informative. Gives true global evaluations. Excellent guidance to leaders. Worth spiky time. Quite often many shows are not telling the real truth.

My fav news show/podcast

I love his show! I started watching it with my dad and then when I went to college I started listening to it while working out or running errands. The interviews are well done and the information goes into things better than any other news show I have watched or listened to (and I’ve listened to a lot)! LOVE this!! More people NEED to listen to his show!!
