Good podcast; some issues are present.
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.

Maybe, but can we just have a break from the racism discussion? It’s all anyone ever talks about and at the very least, put it somewhere separate from everything else. It’s a shame how this podcast has recently begun to spend more time on promoting ideology over actual news. You should listen to the people on the site who have said as much. I don’t expect you to be kind to bigotry; just don’t become another form of soft bigotry.Read full review »
