The very best!

Absolutely brilliant, so sad it’s finished but if someone told me I was fated to spend the next few years listening to a repeat episode a day that would be fine! Interesting, massively informative and thought provoking, a little enriched of life. Massive thanks to all involved!

Without doubt the best political podcast. As a politics teacher who travels under the misconception of thinking I know something about the subject, I find that every episodes deepens my understanding and leaves me scratching my head about questions I’d never previously thought to think. The...Read full review »

Excellent detailed analysis. No egos, no quips just straight detailed discussion. The stand out Political podcast in this regard.
@RBW via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/04/22
but sad to hear you go
mazgill52 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/04/22
Very sad to see you go. It has been excellent. You will be missed. Hope you have time to concentrate on other things but just know this has been one of the best podcasts I have listened to over the last 2 years and hope you might come back one day.
Jo Chelwood Gate via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/03/22
Very sad to see this end. Thanks for your Thursday morning insights every week, you have been an educative (without being patronising), engaging and intellectually curious team. We need more of these shows!
robcuz via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/03/22
Why are you leaving us, just when else need you more than ever?
zukska babuska via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/22
This podcast is of major significance but needs at least one more podcast to do the subject even adequate coverage of its importance especially in the post Ukranian invasion world. Nevertheless the two excellent hosts and the superb editor and producer Catherine are doing an excellent job in...Read full review »

Desperate stuff, HM with her v pronounced hesitations, cod history, and cod historical parallels just intensely embarrassing - after a bit I had to stop listening . The third book is far too long, the literary mannerisms tiresome and altogether it’s all over the place - might she be with her...Read full review »

With the world in greater turmoil than I’ve known in a lifetime, surely this is precisely the worst moment to end the best, clearest, most engaging programme on the global political climate? Perhaps you could give it another few months at least? Sent with love…
The Albino Unicyclist via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/26/22
TP is still the best politics podcast - interesting discussion; serious but not pompous; well informed. I’ll miss it. Thank you.
xtrapnel via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/23/22
David, Helen and your guests I discovered you at the start of the pandemic, prompted by a remark by the presenters of the Let’s Be Cheerful podcast, and have been a regular listener ever since. It has been wonderful to have my horizons broadened and my mind stimulated by your discussions on such...Read full review »
Elisker via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/22/22
At times this has been one of my favourite podcasts. It can be quite specialist but hey you don’t have to listen. The academic view adds another and always welcome perspective on topics as diverse as Johnson, Myanmar, the impact of technology and much else besides. I hope the team find some way...Read full review »

I’ve been living in France for 20yrs and this is the first presidential election I can actually vote in so I looked forward to this episode but how disappointing. Your commentators have no idea - not a clue and your lack of actually discussing what Macron has done/will do apart from within the EU...Read full review »

Losing an old friend have listened from the start, my Thur morning here in Pennsylvania will not be the same. Hope David continues with the “History of Ideas”. Thank you the TP Team for enhancing my world view.
Hi Digger via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/22
Your podcast has enlivened my thoughts about politics domestic and international. You have been a treat looked forward to and I shall miss you all sorely.
front seater via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/16/22
Quite simply the most intelligent political podcast in the English language. All but inconceivable that it will be ending at a time when the convulsions of a world it has so remarkably diagnosed seem destined to become ever more violent. Feeling bereft to learn this, and fearful of becoming a lot...Read full review »
marc p c'est moi! via Apple Podcasts · France · 02/13/22
Very sorry the podcast will come to and end. Have enjoyed it immensely and appreciated broadening my perspectives while introducing the audience to sharp and thought provoking guests in addition to the host. Look forward to future endeavors from this group..
ptroz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/13/22
To David, Helen and Catherine, I’m sorry you are winding up the podcast. I have found it interesting and informative and very refreshing to get insights from other than the Australian media. Many thanks.
Christine - Qld Australia via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/13/22
I feel like the last guest to arrive at a great party having only discovered this podcast in 2021 - I am sorry that it is already time to leave! Thank you for the interesting conversations, for the calm atmosphere and the measured way that you talk about politics. I have already learnt a lot…....Read full review »

Thank you for your brilliant analysis, insights and thought provoking podcasts. So sorry that you’ve decided to call stumps. Please reconsider. GMM54

My heartfelt thanks for your contribution to holding my faith in the world. The last few years I have enjoyed and been enlightened by Talking Politics. I will miss you calm, measured and intelligent debates. You have been an island of intellect and fact based thought, the like of which is sadly...Read full review »

Thank you for all the fantastic pods. I’ve learnt so much over the years and been consistently astonished by the breadth and depth of Helen and David’s knowledge. You’ll be much missed.
Clrgrdn via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/09/22
An absolutely singular, magnificent podcast, a category of quality in its own - WHY ON EARTH LETTING IT END?!?!
ndjuxhhehaijdbehbbxk via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 02/08/22
It is hard to believe, Talking politics is winding down. What a loss, and at this time! I have enjoyed the podcast tremendously, and I am grateful to David and Helen for their fantastic work. Please consider continuing in another form, your contributions are so valuable that they have become...Read full review »
Marie - Brussels via Apple Podcasts · Belgium · 02/06/22
One of the podcast highlights of the week is sadly coming to an end. At its best when discussing an eclectic mix of related topics, it struggles most when discussing UK politics (but they’re not alone in that)
Rvneedham via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 02/06/22
It will be a huge gap. What about considering special editions for key events?
SallyAnders via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/04/22
You guys made the last few years a great intellectual impact from a political and economical point of view for me. I looked forward to your episodes every Thursday and wished that you had more. I’ll be very sad to see you go. Thank you for you amazing analysis and for sharing it. I wish you guys...Read full review »

I am so sad to hear that Talking Politics is ending. It’s one of the best and most insightful political shows out there, and I really appreciate it’s more global analysis. I’m immediately scrambling to find a few (and it’ll take more than one!) that might help replace it, but it will be...Read full review »
AwesomePossum3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/22
I will be so sad to see this podcast end. It is so informative and well balanced. Getting to the heart of an issue is what drives each segment. Factually based, fair minded, well balanced discussion not personality politics makes this such a refreshing change.
Lyn Bareta via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 02/03/22
This podcast is full of intelligent people talking on subjects they are experts in. The host is well researched, articulate, asks insightful questions and is not an egomaniac. If this sounds like your cup of tea, drink deep!
Bard On A Bike via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/01/22
I wish David would learn how to pronounce Hannah Arendt, instead of doing that monoglot anglophone thing of always stressing the final syllable of whichever name he’s saying. It mars an otherwise enjoyable listen.
Anatiomaros via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/29/22
They do sound rather bored, however. Monotony…
wewonthewar via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/16/22
Liberals (the American definition=progressive neo marxist liberal) All of them give off a vibe and a smell that you can detect from a mile away that becomes more definitive and offencive the closer they get.

Solid podcast. Very mainstream though.
Radamist0 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 11/08/21
David Runciman has confirmed on BBC TV that he won’t tackle the debate around academic freedom of speech and trans rights in this podcast. Seriously? Yes, commentators brave enough to discuss it tend to be vilified by one side or another. But that’s no excuse for a political podcast to run away...Read full review »
Cambette via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/15/21
I have been looking forward to TP coming back after the summer for weeks but this episode… I consider myself well informed and not stupid (and I work in finance) but this sounded like an academic lecture not a podcast. We are not all economists and this conversation completely lost me. I listen...Read full review »

Love David and his crew. One of my favourite pods as it keeps me well informed on all things political back home. Great guests and I would highly recommend this show.
john2925 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/07/21
David Runciman and his team produce a terrific podcast. Although originating in the UK it takes a thorough and eclectic view of world events and ideas to be of universal interest.
danimal303 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/21
Love how this is not dumbed down, ever. I wish I was sitting in the Cambridge Politics Department with David and crew.
kay.see. via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/11/21
Awesome podcast that ranges so many topics from the political spectrum
Leopard Head via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/27/21
Letting Curtis jam and jazz on every topic as if he knew what he was talking about is a disservice to your audience.
Expat^2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/21
David and Helen always provide interesting and intelligent discussion on a wide range of topics. A must listen for those interested in politics
IncognitoPenguin via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/08/21
He says the same things every time. Stop “checking in” with an elite university professor. Nothing changes. America is on the way to oligarchic politics, Gary? It has been there for a long time, arguably was designed that way, and you are a part of it! Please Dr. Runciman, do better when you...Read full review »
