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 .

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.

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.

The world needs to take this pandemic seriously, unfortunately India and the Serum Institute fell down on the job, as did Modi, Trump and Balsonaro. South Sudan, recently destroyed nearly 60,000 doses it received from Covax; Malawi destroyed 20,000. Neither was able to distribute its entire...Read full review »

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 was totally fascinated.☝️

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).

The way you carry yourself is truly admirable.

Sounds great. No link for new Gamechangers on Apple Podcasts?

This is top notch journalism, non-partisan POV. Always down to earth and accessible. Great interviews, interesting off-the beaten path articles from time to time. Must-listen!

I absolutely love the Economist Radio podcast, and I happily recommend it to my friends all the time. During the pandemic, especially, as well as the fraught years of Trump’s presidency, The Economist Radio podcast has presented, I believe, an incredibly balanced perspective of current events....Read full review »

In my search for the single best news podcast, my search ended here. I’ve been listening for quite some time now and it never gets old. The analysis is so informative, the topics broad and I find the presenters great to listen to. The Economist has its finger on the pulse; in international news,...Read full review »

I highly recommend all of The Economist podcasts but The Jab is particularly notable. With all the information out there on the pandemic this weekly show will give you the most in depth analysis in the typical unbiased Economist way. The hosts are excellent and they manage to get interesting...Read full review »

Lately analysis are shallow and not well researched, especially from topics from a broad

Tell me who makes this earth more violent and unstable? USA is more suitable to be labeled as “Red”! Red country, red sovereignty = USA. You should make an edition for “what is on the earth the enormous USA bio labs working all around the world”!

How are the next generations going to make business plans for a shrinking world population? About 2 podcast interviews per month are needed, I think.

I have been listening to The Economist Podcast since my English got good enough to understand at least 40% of the content about 8 years ago. I have not miss single episode ever since. It has been the most important source of analytical views on world event for me. It also to some extent shaped...Read full review »

A wonderful collection of podcasts, hosted by many world experts, providing insight into all manner of topics.

It is so great that all shows are in one channel on Apple Podcasts. So easy to find and navigate. And content is also so great.

Keep up the good work.

The Economist is a refreshing newspaper in a world of polarized news outlets. The Intelligence covers major stories worldwide while also adding in interesting pieces on more obscure topics. I feel like I have a grip on politics, science, and culture. They do an excellent job of distilling key...Read full review »

To say I heard another “Checks and Balance” - always a new low for smart talk. Always careful this program makes sure to tell you how they feel without regard to pesky facts. The only facts in this latest show, Charlotte Howard tells us she is embarrassed and ashamed to not know who designed JFK...Read full review »

Thank you

This podcast knows where to find interesting panelists.
Yannis04 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/30/21
While their articles on world economics and finances are still worth a read, the geopolitical writings have long been chalk-full of biases and half-truths. This podcast makes it even worse since the authors get even less time to pad their writings, and basically going full-on with their narratives.
DaveKhan42 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/28/21
In such uncertain times quality unbiased journalism is rare. The Economist provides journalism which is not only unbiased but thought-provoking and balanced.
virajsm via Apple Podcasts · India · 04/28/21
Sorry on Ukraine question,truly crap reporting with a whiff of Biden cheer leading and a dollop of Post Trump Derangement Syndrome.
CARL 14 via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 04/24/21
Well-produced, very informative.
Julien_Sorel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/21
Partisan, ideological and demagogic to appeal a certain audience

I am a long time listener to all the Economist’s podcasts and I have always appreciated their non-partisan approach to news that is impossible to get in the US. Checks and Balances was particularly impressive due the ....uhmmmm....subject matter. But recently Checks and Balances has deviated...Read full review »

Thanks for today’s episode. I think one important issue was left out of the discussion: there is NO other country in the world that has produced such a great number of corporate Titans. Starting from the industrialization age to our days. These Titans have become entrepreneurship role moles but...Read full review »

It’s already highlighted by previous comments but, the instillation of “Ultra Wokeism content” in the Economist’s podcasts totally ruined the quality/seriousness of what was a Top/Premium content. Please keep in mind that listeners are not only your beloved White Anglo-Saxons/Fabian Society...Read full review »

Checks and Balance on Fridays is consistently good. Babbage on Wednesdays is also solid. The British accents have a soothing cadence for some reason, and add to the quality delivery. No ads is also a big plus!
HOOSintheHouse via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/09/21
Overall, I really enjoy listening to the Economist Radio. However, it seems that increasingly, there's more and more of a focus on race and ethnicity but only in an unhelpful way. Claiming that "pulse oximeters are racist” is absolutely absurd and effectively what was being said. The...Read full review »

Always well edited and a great compliment to the audio edition of the economist magazine. Excellent intelligent journalism

I don’t listen to any other new unless I have first listened to the economist. Great journalism 👍🏽
Tshering Lhamo Dukpa via Apple Podcasts · Bhutan · 03/30/21
Show references caucasian males as “pale males” ... they are racist and its disgusting. Its kind of sad how far this show has fallen. They are old men talking about bitcoin and not understanding really anything. I am sad people turn to The Economist thinking they will get competent finical...Read full review »
