I watch the olympics exactly zero minutes. I don’t pay attention at all. Yet I’m transfixed by the ongoing series on the Paralympic cheating scandal and can’t wait for the next episode. It is a sign of excellence of the entire podcast and the bbc commitment to excellence, and also the amazing...Read full review »

Intellectually challenged in para-Olympics. Really? Why?

North Korean communists in Saigon? I think I missed that in history class. But seriously, I like the unique deep dives on this podcast.

Really appreciated episode titled “Bad business”. In depth and truly interesting. First episode of this podcast I really enjoyed and would enjoy more hard core documentaries that are not about covid, race, LGBT issues, or the disenfranchised. Although these issues are important, they have to be...Read full review »

The most depressing podcast

Usually outstanding programs which are made in the tradition of quality broadcasting. I like how the BBC Documentary features worldwide stories with interesting voices and wide-ranging subjects; stories of Iran done by BBC Persian service is a good exemplar of this variety. I’m also pleased to...Read full review »

Generally love this podcast but have learnt so much from Lina Sinjab’s series on Syria, a must listen, I never fail to be moved. Brilliant journalism from all concerned, I feel even more grateful that ever to live in peace and safety and how fragile that assumption is for all of us.

Guys, you know - to listen for almost a year and a half for coronavirus - Is simply frustrating. It is annoying. I think the whole world consists of Africa with unspeakable accent and coronavirus. No one. Nowhere. Do you know, that there are a lot of events in the world???? Impossible. The most...Read full review »

I really enjoy listening to „The Documentary Podcast“ to improve my English Skills and to learn something new every day!

Contents are worth listening.

Loved this podcast, parts one and two. Admired the decision to feature the creative female POC behind dance music revolutions across two decades. Learned so much. Well done!

It was nice to listen to people sharing their lasting COVID symptoms even after recovering which I, myself, had been having difficulty in accepting. There are certain instances when my friends and family do not believe that my sense of smell has really been compromised, which has made me sort of...Read full review »

Enjoy most podcasts on this stream....current events and unique subjects....

It is one thing to show respect for the departed, it's quite another to spout sycophantic & nostalgic nonsense. Poor show old chapRead full review »

Would be a great channel, except it’s all focused on covid.

I was enjoying the rather apolitical nature of the podcast (in comparison to American news outlets) up until A Constitutional Conversation.
LiveuptoitAmerica-MLKjr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/21
Some episodes are very informative, e.g. Capitol Building Insurection then, you have the most recent episodes titled 'world of wisdom' - something of a misnomer, I didn't find anything wise about these two episodes. Just a bunch of people focused on themselves and their...Read full review »

Good podcast, like the diverse topics... stopped listening recently because it’s all just covid stories.

Poor coverage of Facebook. Nobody is forced to use Facebook. No news organization is forced to share links on Facebook. Why continue bashing a service that many people enjoy but nobody cares to pay for? So hypocritical! Btw I am not on Facebook myself. But find the coverage on this impressive...Read full review »

•Episode: “Facebook’s global power and influence”, in which a 10-minute op-ed is billed as a “documentary”.

Great podcast, but sick of Covid stories!! Give me something new!!

As a US citizen, my observation and experience is that Donald Trump was created,and encouraged as a candidate by media outlets of all stripes. Cha ching cha ching. I don’t see an end to this in the near future. The question posed by the reporter says it all: After choosing him (Trump)as a...Read full review »

Such a clear moment of genius for this moment and the future. Unbelievably well done to Marie Keyworth, Sarah Treanor. I hope the whole world listens to it. (also keep them coming team at the bbc, the episodes are always great)

I do really rate this podcast in general. Just listened to the two episodes on this man. Published the day before the attack on the Capitol building. Even without that, they came across as too balanced. And now, no fault of yours, they are instantly out of date. Will you be revising them?
Nonamesleftoutthere via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/09/21
Always worthwhile. I learn from each episode. Thank you.

日本のニュースより、リアルな事を知る事ができるPodcastです。 長いし、難しいので真剣に聞かないと置いて行かれますが 英検対策などにもってこいだと思います。訛りのある英語になれるいい機会です。

I can’t even listen to the episode on White Supremacy in Portland. The reporter sounds like Ali G! Seriously, BBC, it is clear you want yo be more inclusive, but the drop in quality of the broadcasters’ voices is appalling. This is supposedly a professional audio medium. Perhaps some minimum...Read full review »

Responding to election episode.....I don’t understand why you are giving these conspiracy theorists who are hypocritically interpreting the results of the election which are the mirror image of the result in the trump /Clinton elections this much oxygen. Everything they said is right out of the...Read full review »

Have been listening to this podcast for several years and I love how it often features stories which rarely get much of a mention in the UK media. At the same time it also brings a new perspective to coverage of major global events like the US elections - just letting people from both sides...Read full review »

Your program is so wonderful. Reza’s story has a happy ending but there are so many refugees stuck in Lesbos..when will the governments of our world wake up and stop treating their citizens and especially these refugees as garbage!!??
Bibiyas via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/20
My only review of any podcast, and I listen to a lot. Even with lots of US media coverage because of the elections, this is simply informed and enthralling. I cannot wait for part2 on race in Portland Try it.

US election episode had anti Trump guests. Biased Trump Derangement Syndrome. Wont be listening again. Not independent views. Very poor.

Nadine alluded to name calling and how it stifles discussion. Surely calling people ‘islamaphobic’ should be seen in the same light. I respect everyone’s right to their faith. Contemporary Islamic countries do not allow Muslims to leave Islam, force Islamic teaching on their children, legalize...Read full review »

I love these documentaries from BBC.
Madhushan1988 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 08/01/20
This story with the ridiculous French accent is a pastiche of the heroism of many in France saving Jews whether in Vichy or in the occupied zone. Far better told in « Au Revoir les Enfants » by Chabrol. Go to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem if you want to see the reality of the French holocaust and avoid...Read full review »

In order to provide some balance to the “Black America Speaks” podcast you could interview black Americans with a different view of the problem such as Larry Elder or Candace Owens. I will look forward to hearing this podcast from the BBC. However, I am not holding my breath.
