Progressive politics

The commentators and the topics covered offer a progressive slant to American and British politics. You don't have to be deep into the weeds of US politics to appreciate the knowledge, passion and warmth of the commentators.

In a world of Trump this is an antidote to the politics of the ignorant.

Great Show

This podcast is ecellent. It is thoughtful, and well produced. I enjoy seeing events though a European perspective. For me, it is like watching BBC News in America, great to see how events are presented and interpreted from another perspective, and to see parralles and differences 'across the pond'.

Not your typical current events discussion

Fascinating podcast that explores current events in the UK & America. Roifield asks thought provoking questions & it's always an intriguing listen.
