Excellent way to start the day
The Globalist is a well done production that covers current world events, business and the arts in a way that’s fundamentally missing in other outlets. True the program leans towards a liberal, progressive view but does so in an educated, thoughtful way. Recorded in London and featuring guests and contributors from around the world the Globalist stays true to its name by providing an international perspective. Check it out!
News or Opinion?
Just played my first episode based on some great reviews. Very disappointed that opinion has taken over this podcast as well. First and last podcast.
Not bad but certainly not very good.
At times The Globalist can be informative but too often the correspondents don’t really know anything about the subject being discussed so they just blather on. One of the worst offenders is Louise Cooper who never fails to demonstrate her willingness to hold forth on subjects about which she is clueless.
