I grew up listening to the BBC world service when I used to live in Mozambique now in my early 20’s the programs remind me of my childhood road trips when my dad used to tune into the radio station and allow us to be lost in the various stories they had. I would even be lost in the news the...Read full review »

I love the why factor. Great topics. Well researched. Funny at times too. Thought provoking. I love every episode.

It’s quite educational and interesting thing. Come back !

Some good , some not due to getting to the issue or not.

I wonder why they’ve stopped podcasting
Rickdark via Apple Podcasts · Brazil · 08/20/20
I cannot access the recent episodes, the latest I can see is the episode on Millenials from Feb 2020.

Too conversational & superficial by far. Disappointing.
ndjuxhhehaijdbehbbxk via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 04/17/20
Are you guys on holiday? Haven’t uploaded a new episode for a month now! I’m already experiencing withdrawal symptoms! I need this content please!!!
gabi9"& via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/20
I listened to the episode on horses having been lucky enough to have had three of them in my life. Now, I am enjoying the other episodes because they are on a variety of different topics. Thank you for the break from politics which has become so toxic here in the USA. Keep up the good work👍
JLSFCA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/20
Loved the victim blaming episode.
Zabstaff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/20
My initial visit... thought I would start at the initial pod. Feels distinctly rushed: r these people being... STOP-watched? Because, as someone who plans to take their own life, I couldn’t finish this because of this effect, &, right now, not planning to come back. Remember this is SOUND...Read full review »

As a learner of English I find This podcast excellent for its variety of topics

A great podcast, well formatted, suitable for all levels. Enjoyable.

Awsome podcasts
Adriano 81 via Apple Podcasts · Brazil · 12/01/19
Since the departure of mike Williams the show is on a nosedive. Barely any content worth listening to.
.JA.AJ. via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/26/19
Thoughtful, illuminating and empowering. A life-changer.
Handy with a needle via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/24/19
The topics are interesting and well explored, at times taking an unexpected tack.
kfransoo via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/23/19
Excellent podcast. Well produced. Interesting topics, informative and educational. Fun also.
swarm1138 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/08/19
This podcast opens me up to subjects I would normally not think about as well as going deeper into those which I have spent time studying. I also enjoy the stories which have a bit of humor that are a part of the programming repertoire.
EllieEkat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/20/19
I learned a lot listening to this podcast, each topic is covered from a different angle.
Arumashi04 via Apple Podcasts · United Arab Emirates · 05/17/19
Very insightful and well presented! Very worthwhile as a podcast!
jonaochako via Apple Podcasts · Kenya · 04/09/19
Interesting topics and wonderfully produced
Mintfennel via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 03/31/19
This issue you dealt with today my mom and dads generation dealt with. They both came from Bosnia. My mom and her sister were taught to do their best in school so they could achieve their goals. My mom had all the levels in piano and was trained in voice. She had a chance to go to Juilliard...Read full review »

Well presented like all BBC programs. Every subjects is presented with a liberal bias. I wish it would be more balanced and fair.
Mantis79 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/18/19
Episode on meritocracy was intellectually vacant. Most painful thing I have had to endure in a long time.
Brebeuf12 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/18/19
My favorite podcast! thanks
Rami from Vln via Apple Podcasts · Lithuania · 11/21/18
I enjoyed it until the “Truth” episode. When they started getting political and attack Trump, it became no different than the rest of the boring podcasts.
Helenbuck via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/18
Learning a lot from this podcast!
airenepascual via Apple Podcasts · Philippines · 10/12/18
Maybe it’s harder to find subject matter. Maybe it’s a change in producers or presenter power at work. Whatever it is, this show is slipping. Fast. More and more often it sounds like an anaemic R4 current affairs doc. There are already plenty of those. Why be so redundant? This show built it’s...Read full review »

So little information
just a lustener 2 2 via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 07/02/18
It’s great getting deeper into topics that are so interesting. Topics i have wondered about myself and find the answers so much more rewarding and relevant beyond what I could find on the internet. Love people you get to explain and how excited they are to share.
DavidG2018 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/15/18
The producers of this podcast have tackled such a variety of unrelated topics and managed to treat each in great depth (the kind of great depth one can achieve in 25 or 30 minutes). I’m enjoying plowing through the archives and look forward to new episodes
Phuckingphilistine via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/18
Was good when Mike Williams presented - seems less factual and more political now makes it less interesting.
Hengistpodd via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/15/18
This is a fascinating programme!
Study Right (ZA) via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 01/16/18
I can’t find the right words to describe this. So meticulously done. It tackles issues that we all secretly want to discuss. Well done to everyone working on this show
Vick1234abcd via Apple Podcasts · Greece · 11/19/17
Great Podcast. Love the subjects. I wish the episodes were a bit longer but they are great in content.
Milli. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/19/17
My favorite one and it shows me a lot of different insights.
兰竹yue via Apple Podcasts · China · 10/04/17
As with all BBC programs, this podcast is very professionally presented. Each week a particular facet of human biology, psychology or culture is examined and a theory presented. Not so many hard answers, but many interesting theses, conjectures and ideas presented by bona fide leaders in the field.
dettifoss via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/17
Beautifully produced and well worth listening to. Highly recommend.
Stefan Van Sant via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/17
Love this show and have been listening from episode one! Although I wish they would explain what happened to Mike Williams who used to host the show? Now there is a different host every episode? Is Mike not going to host anymore?
Koprivicak via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/28/17
I listen to the BBC world service here in the US late at night on my local NPR station, 91.7 FM WNNZ. The Why Factor is easily one of my favorite segments! Like a shorter version of RadioLab, but with less of the soundscape. My only complaint is that the segments are not longer!
Sucker pucker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/17
Just wish they’d put out 3 or 4 a week! really well made radio
Vixx24 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/31/17
This podcast is so interesting and I have listened to almost all of them, excited for next ones!
Lots wats via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/24/17
I tried to listen to the programme about regrets but had to stop because of the persistent, intrusive and very distracting music. What is the point of playing music over the spoken word? I listen to hear the spoken word; I do not expect to have arrogant, manipulative, cynical programme makers...Read full review »
