Does Charlotte Howard have anything to say about rising oil prices, oil production, increasing reliance on oil and natural gas as coal and nuclear plants are retired? How does lower capacity meet with ending gasoline vehicle production in the next decade? Does your energy corespondent have...Read full review »

I find the discussions, both for the “Checks and Balances” episode and all the other episodes, but the lack of conservative voices in the discussions is very noticeable. For instance, in this episode there was no consideration of the economic impact of any of the proposed increases of government...Read full review »

Just finished the podcast on “how the tax code should be changed” to pay for the two spending bills being debated. Wow. I thought I would write a lengthy response but decided against that idea. The views of the panelists were so extreme that I finally realized you can’t respond to crazy.

I look forward to each one, particularly Friday for Checks and Balance! Such a wonderful podcast and a must listen.

The most insightful, objective, and layered news coverage of current global issues, with interesting, less covered stories included, as well. Jason Palmer has the best voice in news, the best voice in podcasting.

so pathetic to be the tool of the propaganda.

The Economist again stands up there with deeper and broader analysis than others.

Love the podcast in general. I thought the Aukus episode missed critical aspects of the issue. No mention at any stage of the UK’s role (however minimal) in the alliance. No mention of the french / UK / post Brexit European implications.

I m especially addicted to Babbage, which provides very helpful and altogether optimistic insights in the power of technology and science to harness today s wold challenges

These daily news boluses capture the essence and meaning of world events like no other. Penetrating insights spiked with wit and enviable economic data points. We are so fortunate to have this service.

Keeping up with the world news every weekday! Relevant and informative.

You can listen to it everyday and get updates about our world. Unlike twitter for quick info, those updates front the economist podcast give you thorough info you should know.

I’ve been a listener since June 2021. I am enjoying all the episodes and have recommended Economist Radio podcast to a lot of my friends.
ricky.w via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/21/21
Every day this podcast is interesting and relevant. I like that there is a segment at the end of every daily episode that is something completely different from the news. Something about art, or a custom from different countries
Christiaanme via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 09/21/21
I listen to The Economist podcasts driving long distance and on my stationary bike at the gym. Each episode, be it Babbage, The Economist Asks or Editor’s Picks, are fascinating, insightful and instructive, not to mention beautifully presented with lots of humour. They keep me awake on long...Read full review »

Warning: you need to fact check everything you hear on this podcast. There is such a heavy bias, most reports are full of lies and innuendo. Presents a hard left-leaning bias peddled to Americans with British accents combined with the occasional American socialist voice. Gets most issues WRONG,...Read full review »

A fairly vomit inducing “leader” narrated by an equally pompous voice. There are so many fallacies within the article it’s hard to know where to begin. Firstly the obsessive focus on the Middle East, when women’s rights are hardly any better in Latin America. I guess it would be harder to make...Read full review »

Amazing storytelling! I applaud the team for this great first episode. Such a great reflection of our times. Looking forward to it
HPetzi via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/13/21
It was a Good podcast when they discussed the ECONOMY. The past President really screwed up this country’s media and reporting. Over the years I’ve witnessed this publication move away more from what I enjoy and promoted about it, in to just placating to my political side. I canceled my print and...Read full review »

There’s a weird female guest or presenter who speaks too fast with a strong accent. Pain in the ears for serious news.

I love this podcast so much. Timely, intelligent, interesting discourse. It feels an honour to be able to listen. Thank you.
Flobigfan via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/06/21
No better journalism, no better podcasts than Economist Radio. Informative, critical, entertaining, professional - always!
steinhilben via Apple Podcasts · Belgium · 09/05/21
It is incredible that you put out that Robin de Angelo interview without more commentary on the fundamental errors in her theory. Also, during the last year, you have tended to repeat as gospel truth that police disproportionally kills blacks as a result of racism. This is a quite controversial...Read full review »

Very interesting variety of topics and reporting. My only complaint is the ads interrupting mid-sentence.
Betsy Jean Ziff via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/03/21
Not only do we have a huge population boom in urbanization of open spaces. We also have the migration boom of illegals crossing our western boarders. So, too, the homeless population is growing exponentially here in the west as renters and homeowners around the country lose their housing. It’s a...Read full review »

Would never have time to read the magazine, so it’s great to be able to access some of the content on this podcast. Interesting stories across a wide range of topics, especially last few minutes of the intelligence podcast on things like the postal system in Costa Rica not using addresses like...Read full review »

I get depressed at the current state of the world. Listening to the news wasn't helping. A friend suggested I try the Economist podcast. It didn't help me feel any less fearful, but it at least scratches that news itchRead full review »
mamabear booboo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/11/21
The podcast has the veneer of well researched journalism - unless you actually know about an issue in depth. In that case you realize how right wing the Economist actually is especially on foreign issues where the Brits still seem to think they rule the world.

Intelligent, interesting stories. Great topics. Informed interviews. What I'd hoped NPR and The Daily Podcast could be.Read full review »

Of all the podcasts I listen to, the Economist episodes are always sorted to the top. Bringing events and analysis on topics from around the world is invaluable to me, and all the shows from Economist radio do that well. Highly recommended if you have any interest in what’s going on and what’s...Read full review »

I listen to Economist Radio every day. My favorite show is The Intelligence which always has interesting exposes.

“I’m in my favorite state of Maine, where people don’t smile at strangers.” How nice .
AJ Hughes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/21
My son put me on to this podcast. I figured if he enjoyed it, I’d give it a try. It’s a great way to get another point of view or compound your opinion with data and facts. Not too long, so can be listened to on your morning walk, run or daily commute.

Ken and Jason bring insight, deep knowledge and wit to timely and interesting topics. Huge fan.

I will miss the Jab pods. hopefully the Jab panel get to do an update in the other pods from time to time. I also like Checks & Balance & the smaller segments on European politics.
Charlie_EN via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/04/21
Overall the series is wonderful. I am delighted that it survived the 2020 election. Zany Minton Beddows contribution this week made for an engaging sober discussion.

Economists is my drive to work. Things I didn’t know and depth to the subjects I am interested in

I love the team at Economist Radio. After listening for 5 years, this review is long overdue.
NZCrocks via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 06/21/21
Insightful, fast-moving and yet deep in its coverage. The Economist Podcast covers the topics that matter. Also pretty balanced, though it does tilt a bit left of center (I’d love to see it rebalanced a bit closer to center).
