Gravitas and in-depth

Great podcast. I like the gravitas and nuances surrounding discussions of complex Global Issues.
I enjoyed the episode on the Global South’s debt problem. Your guest; Economist Ying Qian, was knowledgeable.
The hosts : Eric and Cobus, are knowledge too. They come prepared. They ask pertinent and complex questions to their hosts hence engaging them.

….

This podcast used to be great. Now it’s the same tired examples. Same complaints. Same think tank-y Americans. Lots of Eric’s American left-of-center political opinions. I listen but not attentively.

Factual errors

Incorrect information peddled as facts. The state department budget is way more than $20 billion. Please do some basic research. I listened to learn more about Africa. But I’m started to get bored. The same tired examples and complaints get hashed over and over, and there doesn’t seem to be enough new content. Consider shorter , less frequent episodes to keep the existing ones fresh with new content.
