Interesting, informative and enjoyable to listen to.

With excellent analysis from all angles on all topics

One of the best things is the variety in age of the contributors, with cross generational discussion. Really good when it is Bridie Jabour with Kristina Keneally.

Behind the Lines (and the Guardian's Australian Politics Live) have become essential listening for me. Both podcasts have expert guests, and are extremely illuminating on the related topics of media, politics, and culture generally, at a time when Australia really needs an honest voice in the...Read full review »

Great political podcast. Not too heavy or dull yet deep and intriguing. Won't take long to get to the point of wanting more!

This was my political podcast conversion experience. "Behind the Lines" is fun, informative, relevant, engaging and always leaves you more interested than before. I like it that it uses everyday language but never insults your intelligence. There's a subtle mix of ideologies, but the opinions are...Read full review »

A great source of intelligent conversation on interesting topics without just following the popular line. Well done Guardian for sourcing such a wealth of journalism. A+

The Guardian rocks.

Rational discussions about politics and the news no matter what side you're on.

One of the best podcasts exploring Australian issues and politics. Always interesting.

Today's podcast is the first time I've thought the presenters of this podcast were overlooking key issues in education. Blaming teachers for the heightening of NAPLAN? Like media and government have had nothing to do with that. I was blown away by the ignorance and bias of their perspective....Read full review »

An insight into what happens in the Guardian's Australian newsroom.

If there's one thing that keeps this protracted election campaign vaguely interesting, it's Behind the Lines. A superb show about politics - essential.

Thanks to all involved in this podcast. Lynne from Sandy Creek SA

I've been really enjoying this podcast for the added perspective it brings to news stories. I feel it's been relying a little too heavily on Kristina Keneally, who I respect a lot, in the campaign episodes and I'd like to hear a little more critique or discussion on her views from Bridie and...Read full review »

This podcast is the sound of a bunch of journos clinking their champagne glasses together as a toast their own compassion.
ooenn via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/03/16
This a genuinely interesting podcast that looks at issues at a wide variety of topics with a great host (who has a great voice) and a wide array of guests. The discussion is a good mix of funny and enlightening. Can't recommend it enough.
Jvasss via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/31/16
Guardian Australia continues to produce excellent in depth analysis of the issues that underpin the politics of today. This podcast does an excellent job of discussing the political, psychological and social background that underpin these policies. I am very interested in what often appears to be...Read full review »

This is great. Listen. I kind of wish Bridie Jabour was my friend.

Bog standard Neo Marxist clap-trap. These Guardianistas are in so deep, they think they're mainstream. Avoid unless you too are another conformist leftist type.

Highlight: Bridie's voice Lowlight: idiots complaining about Bridie's voice

Absolutely loving this podcast. Australian current affairs and politics in depth - very listenable and covering angles of stuff that I'm not hearing about elsewhere.
Jeshyr2 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/23/16
This is really informative and a pleasure to listen to. It offers a fantastic insight that a lot of other media fail to do. Bridie is an excellent host as well.
BC9595 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/23/16
Political insight and analysis by a trustworthy media organisation. To quote Alan Partridge, lovely stuff.
ZanLJackson via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/18/16
Working in news myself, it's great to hear about the process that goes into making the final product from journalists I read regularly and believe set a good example. I hope the podcast doesn't get too swallowed up by the election this year, as I think its wide spread of topics is one of its...Read full review »

Really enjoyed the podcast and hearing about what's happening from the news desk. Loved the reflective side of things too which we sometimes don't hear when journalists are reporting stories. Great job Guardian Australia Team!
ZubieCrawford via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/22/16
David Marr on George Pell is one of the most compelling pieces of Australian audio reporting I've ever listened to. Yay guardian!

A fascinating look behind the scenes of important stories. Looking forward to more

Good glimpse at how a newsroom works and how stories are 'made'.
gabriellecj via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/17/16
As a young journalist just starting out in the industry it's incredible to hear insight into how some of Australia's best journos and editors do their job. The podcast has also made me question some of the things I do and say. For instance in the second episode they talk about men thinking their...Read full review »

Informative and engaging. Bridie Jabour provides an insightful look behind the scenes of one of Australia's newest and integral media properties.
Arden1991 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/15/16
This podcast gives some great background to stories which spend a lot of time at the foreground. It goes beyond daily court reporting or indvidual stories to explain the background and the process and many sides to complex stories.

Mr
Love it
