Great Business Podcast

Another great business podcast from the BBC. Smart guests and the relevant global issues of the day. There is some overlap between this and the BBC World Business Report podcast.

A great show to listen to if you want to catch up on the biggest news of the day while also going a bit more in depth with an endless slew of expert commentators.

Best international news - not limited to business

I love this program for its smart, thoughtful, 'non-sensationalizing' approach that informs their editorial decisions about which news of the day to report. And, I love the way they do it: usually three- or four-way conversations (smart, thoughtful, 'non-sensationalizing') with regular and guest contributors who are literally spread across the globe. And, it's usually fresh (not too many segments are recycled from other BBC WorldService shows)--unlike many other shows on BBC WorldService, which often replay segments broadcast on another BBC show the same day, which makes me a little kookoo. I don't know how many people listen to BBC radio for long stretches of time, but over recent years, I have heard from other listeners who confess to having BBC Worldservice always on. We don't admit it right away, but I've been surprised to hear people listen as much as I do, including leaving it on all night. This quality of international news/talk radio does not exist in the US without commercials or pledge drives, which are unbearable. ++Fergus Nicoll and Roger Hearing--both superb, real, intelligent pros.
