Good, informative, but just a little biased.

Accurate, but it overuses the term right to refer to Conservative, Conservatives in the U.S. and the world actually have shifted from party to party around the world, and government type to government type. And Conservatives have a great sceptical view on the world and Vox ignores that sometimes because Conservatives are wrong a lot of the time, especially now. Vox just needs to have 1 or 2 more middle leaning people who can keep Vox from the bias its close to going to.

Great, but short

The content is excellent, but the episodes are too short. Right when it feels like the hosts are going to go a bit deeper on a subject, the segment ends and it feels a touch incomplete.

Some good some biased

If a podcast is called “worldly” then it should talk from different perspective around the world, the hosts are a good mix of Caucasian and Muslim and Latin, so when talking about Arabic or latino issues, it’s interesting to hear different opinions, however when talking about Asia or other parts of the world, the show only relies on rumor, that was what they exactly said in one of their episodes, which is really disappointing. For example the concentration camp in China, they invited a person who only knows things from rumor, and claimed it true, why didn’t you invite a person from China to talk about it, the result will be totally different. The episode makes it look like that Chinese Han hates uyghur and want to kill them all, that may be true how American whites see Muslim but in China it’s definitely not the case, in China 56 ethnics live on equal standards, actually the minorities enjoy many more benefits than the Han in terms of education and career. Those people who were put into camp or who people hate are only the criminals who harmed the innocent and caused public riots. What do you do with criminals? You put them into jails? Isn’t it what you also do in America? I studied journalism in the states and totally understand the unconscious or conscious bias in the American media, actually podcast has made things better, so I do wish a podcast like worldly could do even better jobs by doing more thorough research and listening to more dicerse voices, which will help to give a more objective view of the world and reduce misunderstandings between cultures. Thank you!
