Great blend of news and culture

I started listening to the Monocle weekly on a whim way back before the magazine was launched almost 2 + years ago and have been a big fan ever since. Brule and company really know how to blend stories you would never hear about in your conventional weekly news podcast with great cultural stories (Art, music, fashion etc). It's quite refreshing to listen to. At times it does seem to reek of "upper crust" New Yorker magazine like pomp but that's the fun in listening to it.

I've only read the magazine once (about $12.00 an issue here in the States) but it' seems that the early poscasts really set the tone of what the magazine was going to be all about. I've since bought their "official" app and use it quite often.

For U.S. listeners it's not very U.S. centric, which is either a good or bad thing depending on the listener.

Welcome to the Elite Leftist Echo Chamber

The guests on Monocle's panels display a wide range of political views... from Very Left to Very, Very Left. These folks are the epitome of those urban, elitist snobs who live in well-heeled jet-set bubbles that are always stocked with 500-thread count organic cotton fair tread sheets and a rather nice small-producer eco-friendly Malbec. So they just can't wait to see how the migrant waves will change the pedestrian thinking of the backwards masses in Europe, and of course a continuation of the amazing policies of Barack Obama (he's been a smashing success!) is just what America needs. Ugh. Nobody on this show ever does anything; they're all just professors in various identity "studies" departments or at left-wing think tanks or writers for publications no one reads. Occasionally there's a topic where they don't spout complete drivel, but this is almost always the sort of echo chamber nonsense that people whose only contact with the real world is through the windows of an Uber Prius on the way from JFK to their trendy loft in Red Hook spout over locally produced IPAs that cost $12 each.

Reporting a flaw

I was busy loving the amazing podcasts, until this happened -

Unable to Subscribe

The provided link is not a valid Podcast.

(when I click on Subscribe on an Iphone)

Through the client I use (Podbox) it says “Not Available” below the podcast name. (everything is all right with the rest, tried restarting everything already)

I put the 1 star just so you hopefully notice sooner. Hopefully for all of us.

Thank you for your vibes.
