Interesting perspectives and not afraid to say it like it is

Free Speech. Ideas. Thoughtful contributors. In the UK! Great!! Supporters??? Spiked is some kind of scout group for news?? Daily Wire subscription model is better for me and less to do with google. Spectator subscription might work…..

PROS: always an interesting, intelligent analysis of the latest current affairs. CONS: I’ve been listening for 12 months and I honestly can’t remember them praising anyone or anything. The whinge-fest has become a little tiresome.

I look forward to this episode each week. A bit of quick, sensible discussion about a couple of the stand out issues in the UK. The panel is insightful and honest and unafraid to speak their mind. Good one!

Love them all. So great to be able to hear smart people talking common sense. Freedom used to be something I took for granted, but being in Victoria, Australia - it is now something that has to be fought for (which I never thought I would have to say in my lifetime). So good to be able to hear...Read full review »

“Despicable anti-vaxxers” is just an opinion- you can and must do better. I agree we need to debate these people, so do so. This last year or so has seen no debate, whether it is lockdowns, masks, or this new type of experimental jab. We are told the jabs work, but others say they are dangerous....Read full review »

Tuning in from South Africa, spiked is my go-to podcast for commentary on British current affairs and dissection of the latest wack wokery in the world. PS: Great sound production too!
Alexw032 via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 06/18/21
The Spiked guys tackle all the topical issues from a freedom of speech point of view. They’re mostly anti-woke which is an important issue for me as mainstream news (and culture) have seemingly disappeared down an awful rabbit hole of identity politics. Thankfully I don’t always agree with Spiked...Read full review »

All the commentators are intelligent and articulate but stay safely within the Overton window. They go after the thin end of the wedge with the anti-woke & cancel culture stuff, but there’s a noticeable lack of bravery to take on the weightier subject matter pertinent to these times. They...Read full review »

As a moderate I really think this show presents balanced arguments that you just don’t hear in the MSM news for fear of upsetting a group or culture of people. Well done team. Great production too.

I started wondering how you’d have behaved during WW2. I bet you’d have ignored what was going on in Europe, Africa and Japan and spent the time being outraged about rationing and blackout blinds. In all probability you would have accused Churchill denying you the freedom to put sugar in your tea.

After initially loving the podcast, in the midst of the biggest removals of our freedoms they seem to spend a lot of time talking about Twitter rows in America and the American journals and skipping over the way OUR freedoms have been lost. Lockdowns and the scandals that surround it are barely...Read full review »

Woklerian, wokish, wokatarian, wokalicious, Wokacratic, .... so many new words.

I discovered Spiked through the lockdown in 2020. I initially really liked how refreshing listening to what felt like a refreshing view that doesn’t exist in the mainstream media. However after listening to this for half a year plus it became apparent that some of the commentators have little...Read full review »

Thank you for speaking so much common sense.

I love Spiked online. But this is the worst sycophantic echo chamber I’ve heard in a long time.

Thank you for raising the issue of free speech and how it impacts on all aspects of our lives.

So happy you’re here.
Leanneb66 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/29/21
This show used to be good, which is unfortunate because I am a firm believer of liberal values and reject extremes from both ends, and that the woke is as divisive as the extreme right. Recent episodes on the lockdowns and the end of Trump presidency - are so contradictory to the earlier...Read full review »

Really sick of their anti Trump rhetoric and pseudo-opposition to Covid restrictions.
Bufferyboo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/23/21
Awesome podcast abs discussion but it REALLY need some diversity of views and some guest speakers who can open the conversation to alternative views. I just agree with everything which is fine but having someone who thinks differently would be great.
Lco43858 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/19/21
These guys are so cute with their high-school debate club rhetoric and nervous chortles
Anatiomaros via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/15/21
But I find Ella is cynical and derisive with the incisive capabilities of a butter knife. She lets the team down. Clearly, often she doesn’t have an opinion and that’s when the cynicism is greatest; but ideas and opinions are what we expect from you as a means of extending our own.

I’m American and I love Spiked. The website is fantastic and the podcast is tremendous.
Monkeyhaus75 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/30/20
Great discussion and I am now a firm Spiked listener and your quest to defend democracy is vital if we are to keep it! Please, please, please keep up the great work Spiked. I’ve been listening and reading your work for a long time now and have just bought your latest book. Happy Christmas to you...Read full review »

I listen to spiked from California and appreciate the incisive and witty Analysis of what is going on in Britain
bonnie brodie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/30/20
Usually good honest unbiased opinion and facts. The Democrats obvious and blatantly cheated in the US 2020 election and it’s easily verifiable. Allegations and evidence of fraud are so varied and widespread that it needs proper journalistic investigation. Instead what we got was how anti-Trump...Read full review »

Great weekly podcast with wry and principled analysis.
Squire William via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/29/20
When discussing voter fraud by the left the editors have revealed their own University leftist roots. The evidence that fraud exists within leftist political parties has been overwhelmingly exposed here in the UK ending with many convicted and imprisoned. As is often the case of young adulthood...Read full review »

I love this podcast. It cuts through the crap of what we’re constantly being told we should be thinking. It questions what we’re not supposed to question.
EljoR53 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/28/20
These guys do a valuable job pushing back against fashionable orthodoxies and the mindless groupthink pushed by the mainstream media and perpetuated by shameless politicians. Yes, they are sometimes ranty, and yes, they sometimes sound like a bunch of 6th formers, but in times where the...Read full review »

Spiked (and particularly Brendan O’Neill) discuss the bullying of modern media/establishment/big tech in a clear, thoughtful and balanced manner. This is simply the best modern commentary available. Spiked discuss the topics that most others hide from - the sheer nastiness of modern identity...Read full review »

Really enjoy the podcast! Keep up the great work!!
Chemin De La via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/07/20
You might think that during an episode about the election the hosts would devote some of the podcast to discussing why Trump lost states he won in 2016 and (probably) the election. Alas, this would have involved doing something other than demolishing woke straw men, so of course they chose not...Read full review »

Excellent episode on the US election and populism on 11/6. Much appreciated. Have become a monthly donor at the website and regular listener.

Their clarity is much needed with so much damaging Woke drivel.

Intelligent independent journalism
James DelingProle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/20/20
Used to be really good - now they sound like a set of moaners. Standards of delivered also suffering - swearing and frustrated ranting. “For Christ’s sake” Lost it’s professionalism - Tom and Ella moan moan moan. Forget subscription. Proud boys aren’t white supremacy the leader is Latino 🙄

So look forward to each new show. Informative and interesting. l am such a show off now when l casually drop out bits of news or points which l have picked up from this broad brush oral magazine. Just great.
