I love this podcast, I find the news depressing and most interviews unbearable and aggressive but this is so interesting, informative and calmly presented with interesting guests / experts.

Southgate podcast does its subject proud! A wonderful listen.

Really well researched and balanced content. The kind of journalism we need more of!!

An excellent podcast - I could listen to Manveen's dulcet tones for hours and hours! Whilst getting behind the headlines is always done with great aplomb, I really enjoy the unexpected stories, too, such as the China one-child policy episode or the children who won't wake up. Today's...Read full review »

I look forward to my daily dose of the Times podcast.. an in depth view on topical stories, which are insightful and provide extra depth to the headlines broadcast on the other channels. The hosts are balanced and unsensational, a rare and welcomed approach

One expects balanced reporting from the likes of The Times. Sadly not, more woke one sided biased takes on topical stories. Dire. Getting rid of Manveen might help, her biases patently obvious in every story but doubt it.

Thought I’d try this out as a change from my usual topical news podcasts. Considering the episodes are so short I don’t know why they repeat so much information. The recent one on Netanyahu was interesting, but not only were some clips played more than once per episode, the “united by their hate...Read full review »

I enjoy this podcast. The one topic format makes it easy to focus. I’ve listened to the Cameron series several times.

Ignore the ridiculous 1* reviews accusing this podcast of being ‘woke’. In truth, it’s balanced, informative and wide-ranging. It also speaks truth to power (which is probably what infuriates the anti-woke bots). A must-listen podcast.

Shame on you Times talking about not being able to afford to buy a flat in Highbury. Your interviewee's friends may live nearby but she could move to Barnet, Edgware, East Finchley and other north london areas that are much much much much cheaper. Highbury is super expensive. No sympathy hereRead full review »

Woke journalism at its worst. Well done for inciting sympathy for a terrorist organisation and more hatred towards Israel.

Loved this podcast until recently. Appalled by right wing pro Hamas slant of today’s broadcast. Shame on you.

Unchallenged democrat biased nonsense, propaganda at its finest
Golfer watcher via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 05/10/21
After more than a year into the pandemic, I’m embarrassed to realise I hadn’t expressed my appreciation for this marvellous podcast. I’ve listened since the start when the idea of hearing news that wasn’t filtered through the internet was frankly a godsend! I’ve only grown to appreciate it more...Read full review »

After listening to multiple Times podcasts it’s the most bias PC Woke one sided journalism available on podcast.

Well presented, very polished and informative.

I like this podcast and this isn’t exactly a review more a comment about the Oxfam story today. I worked for Oxfam for 5 years and found this so accurate. Honestly it’s not just Oxfam in DRC that needs an overhaul. Oxfam needs to go.

Really interesting and detailed stories, this really is (for the most part) excellent journalism, thanks

Dear David and Manveen, Thank you for your podcasts - enlightening and interesting. Please do one on the logistics of Corona vaccines. I hear there are 280-300 components in each supplied from all over the world. Best wishes, Martina

What is the reason for this sudden and narrowly focussed squeamishness about lobbying? We’ve had Tony Blair and David Miliband lobbying for years and getting £multimillions back door government funding for their personal enrichment. .The list of dodgy businessmen who were successful in lobbying...Read full review »

Declare Interest via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/09/21
A hard hitting, well put together podcast on such a scandal. So many sad stories of people’s lives being affected by the action of such a big international company. Zurich should be held to account and made to answer for their failings. Another example of the shocking state of the UK housing...Read full review »

WOW amazing tales my dears thank you for the uplifting look at what those amazing scientific brains are doing great journalism at its VERY best.
southern nomad via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/06/21
Much better to have just a single daily usually topical subject than those useless, rude biased 3 minute interviews on Today. OK not every subject will be to everyones tastes, but you will end up well informed and can make up your own mind. The worldclass investigations are the icing on the cake...Read full review »

A publication and podcast for white sumpremacists among us.
ASideOfSriracha via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/24/21
Some of the statements about Meghan Markle, in particular, are pretty disgusting. And not even the courage to come out and say them - hiding behind the statements of others. “I’m not saying I advance them myself”. Sneaky, cowardly stuff. Unsubscribing.

If you want to hear Sarah Baxter uncritically regurgitate far-right and RNC talking points - this is the podcast for you

Clear explanation of the bullying allegations. I agree that Meghan’s mental health may have affected interactions with others. Very sad situation for everyone

After listening to the the episode on Meghan and Harry vs the Firm I am appalled. The correspondent’s hypocrisy is astonishing. In one breath he casts doubt on claims that there were racist discussions surrounding Archie simply because Meghan and Harry chose not to name names and in the next...Read full review »

This is my favourite podcast and fantastic source of news. I feel so well informed from it! I normally feel it’s very balanced and I come away forming my own opinion however the Harry and Meghan VS The Firm episode was completely biased this week towards criticising Harry and Meghan. I was so...Read full review »

Having listened to the CJ Davis series and been highly impressed I went on to listen to the episode on Harry and Meghan. It’s clearly a bias attempt to undermine the couple following the just aired interview and media propaganda to draw away from the racist institution that is the royals. Really...Read full review »

The episode on Harry and Meghan was cringeworthy; listening to a white reporter dismissing the fact that concerns were raised over the colour of a baby’s skin tone was gross. This same reporter goes on to describe the only person of colour in the royal family as a ‘bully’ whilst citing zero...Read full review »

I’ve always enjoyed this podcast as one throwing an entertaining but rigorous light on current news stories. So what happened with the reporting on the Harry and Megan interview? Maybe look to the Times leader writers for an example of intelligent, impartial reporting on this divisive subject? ...Read full review »

Generally a good insightful podcast, but the latest edition about M&H is nothing short of an absolutely partial stitch up! Jumps out from the usual reporting line a sore thumb, which is a shame.

Well produced podcast with excellent presenters and guests.
Helly 1000 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/27/21
(And David is fantastic as well!) my daily routine includes this blissful 30 min injection of relevant tidbits, good natured intelligentsia & boundless charm. Thank you so much for making this: everyone should listen

Have been listening to the podcast for a few months and must say I really enjoy it. High quality journalism, original perspectives and great storytelling. Can’t wait for the next show!

The style of these podcasts are such an easy listen but I learn so much, in just the right amount of detail. Find myself talking about them for ages after.
