Bbc world this week

Absolutely essential listening. More than just a recap of the so-called top stories—it identifies important stories that didn’t get much play and highlights them, and puts the headlines you’ve already read in context. So even if I have kept up all week, I always learn something new.

Great, concise summary of weekly news

There aren't that many podcasts out there that provide a summary of the week's news. I've tried a few other ones, and I like this one the most. I prefer weekly news summaries over daily or hourly or breaking news. since I think a weekly format gives people the time to reflect upon what stories are actually important instead of reporting the thing that just happened a minute ago. I agree with another reviewer here; I wouldn't mind if the program were slightly longer and there was a little more depth for each story, but I'm glad this podcast exists.
