I just listened to the episode on the UK economy with Paul Johnson. He said and I paraphrase,’The UK has been quite good at getting people to university but less good at technical/vocational training’. Whilst I agree with the latter surely he has the intellect to realise that part of the problem...Read full review »

Simply subjective and opinionated tripe not fitting the title of any quality or objective analysis

If you believe that politicians are like you, you clearly are a self centred individual, which is probably why your in the media, read your history, all politicians are hypocrites and self centred individuals, you vote for a cause or party that you are interested in. Excellent program but the...Read full review »

Listened to the discussion around inequality with Paul Johnson and Angus Deaton. Learned a lot.

If you prefer your podcasts to be unbiased without a blatant political agenda, you need to look somewhere else.

I thought the program on falling birth rates failed to explore benefits of falling birth rates and eventually population.

The BBC is the greatest institution that this country has. The most trusted source of information in the rest of the world. The people, who talk about BBC’s’bias’ are the ones that listen to Nigel Farage and other toxic extremists. Great work, BBC!

I was disappointed by the narrator’s extreme bias here. This is such an interesting topic that requires complete neutrality to be able to delve into the nuances and facets of this very real phenomena. The narrator almost seemed unwilling to accept the theory. I certainly can buy into the thesis...Read full review »

My brain inhales these podcasts.
Gaciru via Apple Podcasts · Kenya · 08/26/21
I downloaded this podcast for analysis instead I got indoctrination and “look at all the reasons why I am right”! Episodes are often less analysis and more debate, in most cases a one-sided one. Prime example the episode on cancel culture. Unfollowed.
Nicolas Bar via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/15/21
A very good podcast, but unfortunately produced by the BBC with its biases. Foucault is discussed with the reference to his observation of power, and the Great Barrington Declaration in another episode (and how that was wrong). I suggest that they cover the Madness of Crowds phenomena, and how...Read full review »

There are very few podcasts that provide so much information in an understandable manner. I know it should not come as a surprise, it is the BBC after all. Yet, the five episodes on Freedom of Speech took me completely by surprise. Although it is perhaps more urgent now than then, I have not seen...Read full review »

In every episode there is not just discussion but also new perspectives and information. My understanding is always widened, and that is really useful.
akouomen via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/25/21
Very poor podcast from the bbc. One can almost predict the direction that the programs are going to go in. Much better podcasts out there on every topic it touches.
Cwycu via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/23/21
There aren’t enough superlatives that one can use for this podcast. Incredibly informative, well research, well presented and they find this magical balance of packing a great deal of information in 30 minute shows (on average). I also love the topics they seek to unpack and you always, always...Read full review »
Ivo Da Cruz via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 03/08/21
Really interesting 30 minute deep dives into range of topics. Balanced and well researched
London25a via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/11/21
Well written, well produced and super informative.
Ihsankerr via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/14/21
I honestly don’t get why the BBC don’t promote Analysis more energetically. If it was new, American, and had slightly flashier editing, I’ve no doubt it would be a critical darling of podcasts. As it is, it’s been running on Radio 4 since 1970 and so gets overlooked. Intelligent, accessible,...Read full review »

In times where the near totality of communication copycats twitter, a little more profound analysis is a blessing for your junkies neurons

Great overview of the role of band markets and how they have changed over the last forty years. Perfect level of understanding for an interested amateur like me!
MOxshott via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/23/20
Absolutely to the point, multiperspective angles, no pathos nor drama, sober, reflected, thought-through.
ndjuxhhehaijdbehbbxk via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 08/19/20
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👍🏻
Elizaveta_Kataya via Apple Podcasts · Russia · 07/23/20
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 »
TrapezeArtist via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/10/20
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.
Captain Dilbert via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/09/20
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 »
Lee N1981 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/09/20
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 »

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?

A great listen, really interesting, balanced and fair. Well done BBC!

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!

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.

Real effort both to go in-depth and to cast a wide net (for information).

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 »

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 »
