I especially like the variety of topics discussed as well as the quality of the language and presentation. Extremely helpful for those preparing for high-level exams or generally willing to improve their listening skills. Bravo👍🏻

I just listened to Humans vs the Planet by Lucy Proctor in which she seemed completely unable to cope with information that made her uncomfortable and resorted to name-calling without any real attempt to dismiss arguments intellectually. Rather sad for the BBC, but has long been accused of having...Read full review »

John Kampfner's review was very insightful. The response of leaders (populists and others) to the current situation varies in unexpected ways. The programme does a good job of probing these. I listened to it twice.Read full review »

The episode on leadership was disappointing. The lazy characterisation of ‘populists’ and the conflation of Johnson with Trump and Bolsonaro belies the political sympathies of the author in a way that undermines the subsequent program.

What a shame that this episode just looked at the leaders it wanted to come to the conclusions it had pre-determined. How can you look at the failure of Strong Men but ignore Benjamin Netanyahu’s success in dealing with the pandemic in Israel? Too big an oversight to ignore. Shame because...Read full review »

This is really good. It includes interviews with people who are sceptical about the authenticity of beggars and with people who beg. It deals with the problems of people who beg and the way they are dealt with. This is a topic that should be talked about more and here it is talked about with...Read full review »

Too many left wing opinions dressed as fact.
Lebrel the Great via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 05/27/20
Great podcast that gives you the story behind the story from every angle.

More bbc bias on every subject discussed ... if your a woke progressive living in metro land you will have all your prejudices reinforced ... avoid if you you don’t want to be annoyed further by the rampant bias and self reflection of the bbc

Ian Goldin is proven prescient when he said the next crash might be caused not by factors that plunged the economy in 2008. Christine Lagarde said it might come from nowhere. Goldin is worried the next crash might be precipitated by a pandemic. Listening to this podcast again while on corona...Read full review »

I’m really surprised that this programme did not mention that within the UK, there is a difference in GP (E&W) and Scottish Green Party which because of the electoral system (List) in Scotland, the Greens have 6 MSPs and have a significant influence in the Scottish Parliament e.g. Fracking...Read full review »

I’m really enjoying this podcast. My only criticism would be that surely you should grasp the nettle and double the length to give more room for exploring the subjects?
Luq via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/20/20
Очень интересно слушать!
DrZaszus via Apple Podcasts · Russia · 02/17/20
A great listen, really interesting, balanced and fair. Well done BBC!

Only worth listening to if you want to get rubbish views by people who could not keep a job in the real world
Allan G MJ via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/20/20
Look forward to new editions, always informative.

and I gain a lot of insight from it.
Glenn Danzig II via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/15/19
Have listened to many of these now and it usually goes like this:- 1) Anticipation as the latest topic is one I consider interesting and important; 2) Early promise as some major issues identified, including contrasting views; but then 3) Glib recommendations that ignore much of what was in 2);...Read full review »

Excellent podcast, one of my favourites. I agree with another reviewer; I also wish that they would publish episodes more frequently!
neilmichaelmack via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 09/17/19
Not every podcast keeps my interest to the end but I have learnt so much about topics I would never have given a second thought. Thank you.
Whome555555 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/02/19
Real effort both to go in-depth and to cast a wide net (for information).
Radical Linguist via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/26/19
I have become increasingly annoyed by BBC podcasts being plagued by trailers for other BBC podcasts. OK, the odd trailer is acceptable and useful for alerting me to other potential material but nearly every podcast I download seems to now include a trailer. Now I am finding a 'Deadliest...Read full review »

Very interesting presentations of valuable topics in society. I appreciate Mr. Paul Johnson’s journalism in the “The Forgotten Half” alternatives regarding higher education. Here in the USA higher education is a “big business”. Thank you all at “Analysis”, staff work and...Read full review »
August Consumer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/19
7 out of 10 episodes on this are terrible. Shame on you malcontents! Shame! Shame! However, 3 out of 10 episodes are really quite startlingly good. Bravo chaps! Prior to 2010 the BBC used to produce good, honest, often even beautiful shows. Blackadder comes to mind as a gem. But starting in...Read full review »

Very glad to have heard this because as an Architect I am very aware of lack of building skills training and had never heard about the report, at least only the universities part of it. Another thing to nag my MP about.
elnajudel via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/09/19
Enough of the BBC feminist agenda. It’s important but not the only subject plaguing this world. There’s more to life than money.
.JA.AJ. via Apple Podcasts · Belgium · 06/12/19
So interesting, so informative, and often gives you ideas about where to look to find out even more on the topics. Often challenges the received wisdom or understanding. Just excellent all around.

I love Analysis... helps give a deeper perspective than the news
Peter.K.Allen via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/17/19
If you like relevant, in-deep commentary on recent events then this is a pod for you
Alla namn verkar tagna via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 05/14/19
Highly recommended
pamelaranic via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/24/19
Always delighted to find a new edition Analysis has dropped into my podcast collection. Invariably interesting and thoughtful, adds depth to the 24 hour news bite chatter.
osamuel via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/21/19
Kombinerar på oslagbart vis snabbhet och djup. Kunniga programledare intervjuar dem som verkligen vet något om aktuella problem och idéer
Rottenbutter via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 04/16/19
Every episode stretches my thinking. Credible well researched and compelling. Dr John

In-depth look at serious issues. Well informed and good analysis.

But please avoid American-style presentation and Journalism.
BillyBobBillyBobBilly via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/30/19
Discusses relevant issues that are seldom treated with such depth in mainstream news outlets.
Thoronar via Apple Podcasts · Colombia · 03/28/19
Well researched and presented. I particularly like having a regular short stimulating programme that can occupy time I’m exercising or traveling Well done.
Chris Spackman via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/13/19
Such an informative podcast that really explains what is going on.
JP3000SE via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/07/19
In depth explorations — thoughtful and balance. Great work!

ANALYSIS is a wonderful deep look inside the news. A meaningful part of my podcast week.
NoHoDad via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/19
This is an interesting show, but it’s still a bit too streamlined (not sure if that’s the right word). The thing I love about podcasts as a medium is the depth of discussion that they allow. This show kind of stops half way towards this. It’s trying to dig into subjects but uses a lot of...Read full review »

Intelligent programmes with a knack for catching ideas months, sometimes years, before they become mainstream. Indispensable radio. I recently re-listened to ‘British Politics, A Russian View’ - as eloquent, witty and beautifully made as it was disturbing.
Pepperwell via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/23/19
Just listened to The War for Normal It's supposed to be about defining the middle ground and how to regain that. I listened as someone who feels alienated by the continual media opposition to anything that it considered conservative. All we get it the more sophisticated dissection of the...Read full review »
saperlo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/19
There’s no filler in this podcast, and it dares to tread on the dangerous ground where necessary. It does seem to have a little of the standard BBC bias that the sensible position is always Progressive Centre Left, but this doesn’t spoil a good programme. For example, in the show about the New...Read full review »

Analysis produce some wonderfully insightful commentary on the big issues behind the news. Well-researched, clear and very engaging, Analysis sheds light on some of the major trends and challenges facing the world today
