paddy pop ,

Speed-talking not good.

Taking too fast ruins the effect of good information.

A UK fan ,

Ian Bremmer

An armchair critic who has not lived in Afghanistan for a prolonged period and therefore is by no means giving an expert opinion.

The british invaded and lost 3 times!! The russians invaded and left in a humiliating defeat and WARNED Bush not to do it. You need legitimate guests on your programme who really know the status of this country but this person was appaullingly bad - totally opinionated with no real experience.

Diverse and interesting ,

Impressive

I have listened to a lot of politics and current event shows over the past year. Few have such a calm steady hand with such excellent questions from The host. Subjects I thought I knew soy about I learn more and look at differently after listening to Preet. Really well done.
