Regrettably Left leaning

I used to subscribe to the Economist for its lack of bias. That’s has obviously and unfortunately changed.

Is this a side show?

I am surprised that The Economist can’t seem to get a good reader for its podcast. It’s very difficult kit to follow unless you’re sitting down and listening. The voice seems electronic? So many better ways to do this which is a shame as the information as always is compelling.

Come for the fabulous accents. Stay for the analysis.

But seriously, this is a great podcast for important and timely information. Good range of topics and ideas, with the Economist’s trademark depth, salience and dry wit.

Aged perspective

The takes and perspectives contained within sound more and more to me like the gasping, desperate death throes of the unrestricted economics this paper advocates for. Take, for example, the November 28, 2019 episode, which leads with a story about “new data” which supposedly somehow claims to show that income inequality has not risen since the 1960’s! Amazing stuff, that! That was a leading story! At that point, I found myself stepping back and asking how and why a long respected arbiter of fact has sunk to the level of publishing unscientific drivel that attempts to gaslight the entire world off the truth that is plain as glorious day in front of all of us: the system, as currently constituted, has been completely broken by the greed and corporatism this paper has dutifully carried water for under the guise of “better outcomes for all”. Perhaps this review says more about my changing views than it does about The Economist, but WOW these views sound out of touch, especially in the current political-economic climate

Love their prospective

I listen every week for their prospective on world affairs, business and the economy. I may not always agree but I do find it enlightening.

Just shows how out of touch the Brits are with US Politics.

The Economist has no business informing us Americans about our politics. Their editorial commentary is laughably out of touch with the American reality day to day.

Too much advertising, so annoying

They added advertising in the contents so annoying. It ruins their good article and good voice of narrator.

Things are slipping

What is going on? Today the announcer got the date wrong, the regular drop day had changed, the lead in from the slate to the actual article is longer while the number of articles “sampled” has gone down. My favorite podcast now sounds like it is being run by interns instead of the consummate professionals with which it won my heart years ago. Fix it!

Really enjoy except...

Love the content of the podcast. One request- can you play the music just for a few seconds instead of while people are speaking? It’s just distracting, unnecessary, and if I don’t miss words, I have to actively try to hear them.

Great analysis each week

I’m a subscriber but enjoy listening to the weekly podcast a day before the paper reaches my Hawai‘i mailbox. The stories are read in a quick pace that honors my limited time. Keep up the great reporting and engaged reporting from an international perspective.

Fantastic and amazing, can't live without it.

It's extremely generous of the economist to give us the best of the best in audio format. Always listen to this while cooking and walking my dog. Can't live without it now
