Why? Because the contents are mostly ex British Empire related. Moreover the material is repeated. It gets annoying to listen to Brexit related news in daily basis, or Trump impeachment, or Australian fire. Yes, these are important news but 50% of the material was said the day before and I...Read full review »

I’ve listened to this podcast for years and learned a ton. Jackie Leonard, Martin Patience, and Emilio San Pedro are delights ♥️

Thank god I live in a country that disciplines their children. Not letting them become juvenile delinquents. Not letting them set their own rules on how to look and act. Civilized societies have too. All rules apply evenly. Hair cuts and style in schools do matter. It doesn’t matter what race...Read full review »

I am a Chinese, who listens to BBC World Service every day. Thank you!

Same play book as CNN, but with cooler accents. Good to stay up-to-date on the daily agenda.

Reliable and comprehensive news coverage. Love the occasional bit of dry humor. Perfect to listen to on the way to school
Andrew B. Li via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/20
Your reporting is clear, insightful and always informative. I’m afraid the critical comments claiming a “leftward slant” are actually expressing displeasure at facts and truth, much like the climate change deniers dislike science and Trump supporters dislike the Constitution, civility, and the...Read full review »

I like that I can hear news from far flung countries that is not on local broadcasts.

The most underrated news podcast. I listen daily. Brilliantly produced and presented.
Dizdazdoz91214 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/01/20
I like the breadth of world coverage, but is seems since PM Johnson took office, the coverage on all topics seems to be leaning further and further left. I started listening to this because I was tired of the leftist slant of the American media. We just want the facts; not opinions.

数ある英語Podcastの中で、良い意味で最も普通で違和感なく聴けます。英語の発音も普通ですし、ニュースの内容も一般的な話題ばかりです。日本語の解説は不要な場合はこれが最良です。

I listen to the BBC global news podcast every morning and it provides a good overview on key events around the world. Gives you a holistic sense of what’s happening from politics, business, arts, science, and more.

I listen to it daily and love it! It ends up being a little too long, but i like how they really discus ww problems.

Seems a bit out of touch to confuse African American players, especially when one former Laker released a video and the other a post with photographs. When I heard Shaq I thought this was in addition to that. Instead it was Kareem Abdul Jabar. That’s the kind of mistakes that makes it almost too...Read full review »

Excellent content for a truly global update during the commute to and from work. But why is it so hard to get the latest episode playing instead of continuing playing some former episode that I had to brake off mid-way! Very annoying stuff - special may when driving ....

Very interesting podcast, pleasant and a good way to stay informed on what’s going on all around the world. The only drawback is the length of the podcast, I never have the time to finish them. I think that you should make them a bit shorter

I am in North America and I find this podcast gives me a balanced dose of news from all over the world. American podcasts, even if well done, have an insular world view.
HappyImp via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/21/20
Use to believe BBC was a reliable news source. Just listened to the Alan Dershowitz interview. Wow. BBC, do better. Completely biased interview. Dude interviewing literally said to Dershowitz “Many people think this hearing is a farce.” He gave zero pushback and let Dersh spin and dodge. A...Read full review »

I was tired of American media and have been enjoying bbc podcasts for year, then discovered Global News, and I feel that I am better informed about my country, and the world.
cwilrycx via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/20
Best Podcast of Worlds News. British Newscasters that most Americans can understand. We Americans should listen to news produced outside of US, this is a great place to start. Additionally podcasts are current because the British day starts many hours before ours, therefore it is a current and...Read full review »

I found your reporters on Windows 7 employed ageist language - oh dear, your parents may not be up to date on the new upgrade. I guess they are not listening to YOU on the BBC either.
Lin Tin Tin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/20
part of my daily routine by now to listen to the global news podcast. quality news delivered in an on the spot manner. thank you🙋🏻‍♀️

In regards to our dreadful firs, Please, please say it correctly. Australians say BUSHFIRES. Wildfires is an American term. It is annoying hearing BBC getting it wrong. Great job otherwise. Have been listening to you for over 5 years.

American media focuses too much on news within the states. This podcast provides a more balanced coverage on international news.
toonkool via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/07/20
Very good news source. I like how unbiased it is!
anbeje via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/06/20
Some information are hypocritical and misleading, like HongKong event. Always podcast what the government wants to let us know.
谣言与蛇 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/06/20
The world is a big place and there’s a lot going on. Unfortunately, that makes for a lot of events that aren’t particularly relevant to a lot of people, yet this podcast still covers those things to a fault. Particularly annoying is reporting on pointless sporting events, which I’m not sure...Read full review »
Harsh But Fair via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/20
The review of the assassination of Qassem Soleimani was the most biased story I’ve heard on this platform. Absolutely no explanation of his war crimes or why he was a threat. Only interviews with people who seemed to look up to his ways. This was the end of the line for me listening to this news...Read full review »

The volume is much lower than most other podcasts. Great content, but BBC should increase the volume when mastering the production so one can stream the podcast better on Amazon Echo and elsewhere.
DClegis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/01/20
I’m unsubscribing just because of that. Content was okay but not NPR Up First good
Mark's Zuck via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/29/19
So refreshing to have a truly international perspective. I’ve a busy schedule each day but rarely miss an episode. Truly professional journalism.
BM1111 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/28/19
A good overview of world news, unsurprisingly with an emphasis on UK and US politics. As an American, I listen daily to get an idea of what’s happening outside of the US, because our news doesn’t cover that. It’s typical BBC, which drives its focus and bias (and endearingly corny humor)... I...Read full review »

Thanks for a concise way to learn more about the real situation in the world. I learn about news that is not covered in US. Thankful.

I love listening to the world news. I can never get enough from the BBC, wether it’s News Beat from Radio 1 to their podcasts, everything goes into great detail.
TurtleGlo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/30/19
I could only wish my home country, the United States, could attempt an objective, public news source with the depth, resources and range of the BBC. This podcast is an excellent ‘deeper dive’ into daily headline stories, providing context and additional information that makes understanding the...Read full review »

I depend on this podcast to remind me there is a world of important events beyond the nectarine whack-a-mole show we are subjected to in the states. The topic determines the time needed so does vary. That is JUST FINE. Manipulating coverage to some make believe time frame is part of the problem...Read full review »
