I used to, and to an extend I still love this podcast, it is an excellent source of news and analysis. But it is becoming increasingly difficult to listen to Matt Karnitschnig, belittling and mocking Europeans. To say there is ‘relief in the civilised parts of Europe’, is not only insulting, but...Read full review »

I listened to you guys religiously every week! Not only you are pan European but also pro European and that’s become rare these days. One question , we haven’t heard nor read from Rym Montaz lately, will hear from her soon?

I’m listening from Toronto. I listen to this to understand the everyday European imagination. It’s an immersive coverage. It makes me feel like I’m living in Europe and as if I am a European citizen.

Production isn’t exceptional but the topics are very interesting. There aren’t a lot of organisations covering EU politics so I’m thankful for this podcast

Occasionally presenters are a bit easy on guests in interviews.

I have been listening to this podcast since it’s beginning - and I love it. It’s informative, balanced, and brilliantly produced. It makes eu politics tangible and feel nearly palpable. I spend all Thursdays eagerly awaiting the new uploads. Thank you for all the effort you put into this.

I teach European politics and this is my number one resource to stay up-to-date and get expert analysis on political developments in Europe. The dynamic among the participants is great—a positive, entertaining tone.

Highly professional, highly informative. Highly appreciated. Please keep up the good work.

It is so hard to find any podcast about EU. And this one is not just any — it is really a good one. The best place to begin your EU trip.

Andrew Gray is coming back! Yay!
Katjushka Malson via Apple Podcasts · Belgium · 08/26/21
I have been listening in for a while now and as an Continental European I am baffled by the fact that the “experts” on Europe allways seem to come from UK or the US often with an arrogance regarding UK/US strength in relation to Europe. Do your job better - if I want to know something about China...Read full review »

Excellent overview of recent happenings in Europe by the excellent Politico team headed by the wonderful Andrew Gray. My only criticism is that some discussions seem a bit short.
John_F_ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/28/21
Such a nice respectful combination. Led by the oh so civil Mr.Gray... I do wonder about that Rym, she’s yet to say anything even mildly neutral about Macron. Someone appears to have a bit of a fancy... that said. She’s great at her job. and being a red blooded Americans, I appreciate Matt K’s...Read full review »

Great hosting, contributors, themes and guests. 👏
JohnVinBp. via Apple Podcasts · Hungary · 05/22/21
Excellenr podcast with a pleasent Scottish accent. One star less for frequent adverts from the Oil & Gas industry. The business models from Equinor and Shell aren’t anywhere near aligned to 1.5 degrees. Why else would they need to push the public narrative towards their renewable activities?...Read full review »

From Australia it is hard to get regular and useful journalism and perspective on so many diverse aspects of Euro politics. Love the format of this podcast. Hosted superbly with such a high calibre panel and covering really relevant topics. Addicted.

I like this podcast but although the episodes appear, they do not download to ITunes on my PC . Have tweeted Politico aboiut it bit not response. As it doesn't work, deleted.Read full review »

... I wish there weren’t advertisements from companies like BP and Equinor, who are destroying our world.
aotracosamariposa via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 02/11/21
This outfit goes out of their way to give anything positive the silent treatment, while boosting and hanging on desperately to any negative EU related news for weeks on end. It sounds exactly like listening to the UK Tory or UKIP party. Don`t waste your time. Select another feed.

Serious stuff for serious listeners. We don’t need Muzak.
gwmie via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 01/10/21
I love this podcast. I‘ve been looking for a good source to stay up to date with what is going on in Brussels. Riem is especially cool. I love the way she contextualizes her points and synthetically interacts with others (in contrast to adverse argumentation). But everyone is great. :)

Great!

I really enjoy your podcast but this is ridiculous.
twannoise via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 11/30/20
Episode 178 a guest recalls a war with 200 years to say Britain defeated an European enemy lost in time, and translation probably. Aren’t there any better - non nationalistic - specialists to invite? And could you pledge not to accept money from interests that are against our current ideas, like...Read full review »

Just listening to your podcast where you say Macron claims to be listening to the science, and then you highlight differences between Germany and France. What you’re missing is that responses are not over arching. Eg Qld Australia introduced restrictions in households before cafes bcos they...Read full review »

This is shocking biased it’s foreign interference in a foreign election it could be funded by the Biden campaign. If it was Russian based crooked Hillary would be screeching from the rooftops
Thorpeman via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 10/01/20
I’ve listened for a few months now, and as an American, I was surprised by how much I understood. Very helpful for anyone who want to know what’s going on with the eu
JohnL165 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/20
Love the topics and I learn a lot about the politics in the EU. I was looking for a EU politics podcast because the dutch news is not covering much and is flooded with USA politics. I don’t understand why the EU podcast is covering so much news on trump lately though. I’ll wait gladly on more EU...Read full review »

Great job with the interview. This woman has hit the nail the head. The tribes could kill the EU project. The money for the COVID crisis is to help and not to completely solve the problem. I’m in favour of a control to see the money is used correctly. I would insist more that reforms don’t...Read full review »

Thank you for the job that you do! I love being able to keep up with some of the stuff going on in Brussels both from the journalist experts and the politicians themselves. So thank you keep it up! Also love the occasional guests on the podcast panels that are stationed in different European...Read full review »

So informative and fun. Everything you need to keep informed.

interesting for a non-European like myself and very enjoyable
Absolute Ma via Apple Podcasts · Thailand · 05/28/20
Not only because of the Scottish accent ;)
Luk11111 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 05/27/20
Best podcast I have found so far on what’s happening in the politics of the EU. Currently with the corona crisis it’s more often the case that you also heard some info discussed in the podcast already in for example the news paper, but that makes sense with the extensive coverage of the media....Read full review »

Interesting, informative and essential podcast.
kiwigirlh2o via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/16/20
This is a solid podcast with great interviews, however Britain has left the EU so please stop giving the UK Government (and it’s propaganda) top billing, particularly on COVID-19. I dropped a star off the rating for that reason. The older format was more focused on goings on in the actual EU.
European abroad via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/10/20
Very useful to get a more accurate perspective of the EU while living outside it and subjected to distorted information continuously!
pgoncslv via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/28/20
Too off the cuff & superficial by far. Dear GOd, where did you dig up these reporters?!
ndjuxhhehaijdbehbbxk via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 03/23/20
Shallow analysis and comments, nothing I wouldn’t get from a random newspaper. I expected insightful analysis and comments from the guests, not just an explanation of how there are different kinds of hand sanitisers or that people confused EU ACDC with the band. Please, come on.
brunob15 via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 03/17/20
Interesting news analysis (if I find that weeks subject interesting) however they could really use some more English native speakers. Sure hire foreign journalists but don’t have a them take part in podcasts, at least on television you get subtitles
DanemansB via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 03/12/20
How can an analysis of Davos, “presented by Goldman Sachs”, possibly be viewed as being independent or reliable? I thought perhaps it was written as a joke. Seriously...
dollaholting via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 01/24/20
Independent journalism should not be sponsored by Goldman Sachs.
gjgdutv via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 01/22/20
If you are content with the typical view of mainstream European newsmakers, you will like this podcast. But if you expect fresh and mind-broadening thoughts and ideas, go and search for another one...
Stefan der Tausendste via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 11/17/19
Take Brexitcast, waterboard everyone and give them lobotomies, you have EU Confidential, where even if you do hear something confidential, it’s impossible to tell. If you like “meetings”, you will love it :)

Political analysis- ok, gossip - ok, interviews- horribly weak
