Very impressive scope of stories researched for each episode. I’ve learned more from these multi-episode series than any other news/educational podcast I’ve found. None of the topics under discussion cover commonly known content - as so many other programs do. Rather, each features insider...Read full review »

Love this series. Fascinating to hear a snippet of others lives. Be great to hear this from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast etc.

Great small serials. The American BBC presenter that does ‘The Sun’ though really should’ve re-thunk her theme music and voiceover 🤢🤢🤢

Excellent program! Pathetic editing between programming and inserted commercials/promos. Sheesh.

This is such a welcomed podcast that gives a welcomed insight of the 2007 Global Crash and its ongoing repercussions :(

Fantastic way to gather insights into new perception on our environment. Well researched, and delivered with clarity that would be anticipated by a quality program for BBC.

Tim Whewell is simply superb in the Black Sea series, please have more Compass podcasts with him. His voice, his presentation and the journey he takes his listeners on is truly a mesmerising one.

This is a fantastic podcast that’s my go-to for regular, realistic but non-nihilistic exposure to world affairs. My favorite series is My Perfect Country, which selects a different country every episode for an examination of a notable policy that improves its citizens lives in some way. I hope...Read full review »

Learned, balanced, tolerant news from afar. The very antithesis of Brexit and Trump

As a former All Black great, I want to keep my mind active and body awesome. The latter is taken care of. The former, well, let me just say that this podcast series is a wonderful addition to the things that I do keep informed about the world.

Can't understand why this podcast doesn't have more reviews! Amazing content, I have been listening to one podcast after another. So glad the BBC news hour podcast directed me to the Compass. Particularly enjoyed stories on Islam and the Middle East, Local Warming, the Perfect Country,...Read full review »

This occasional podcast always surprises me when I see that another episode has popped up. Superb documentaries from the BBC.

Every now and then something just pops up in iTunes that changes my listening habits and world view. The Perfect Country series was a delightful door to a significant program. Thank you all.

Loved this podcast. I never had much idea why current conflicts had been perpetuated from conflict to conflict. This series on islam was really good
