Listened to one episode

Interview with Chris Ruddy. Me. Ruddy managed to give honest, even handed responses to an obviously hostile and biased interrogator.Won’t subscribe. Won’t listen to another episode

Straight forward

Podcast title describes it perfectly. Great interviews... especially Steven Sackur...no holds barred on the questioning. Very high profile guests...and questions that we would all like to ask of them. Amazing to me that many of these guests would accept an invitation if they knew anything about the show ahead of time!

It’s hard talk

You can’t get better than this on a podcast. Especially when Stephen Sackur says welcome to hard talk , and then you know that someone with a political or social perception is gonna be challenged at your pleasure.!

Interview with Ed Husain

Zeinab’s interview with Ed Husain was one of the worst I have ever heard. She asked questions of him and then spoke over his answers. I actually wanted to hear his answers but didn’t get the chance. Zeinab should have done an episode called, “What I would say to interrupt Ed Husain’s answers.” It would have been more honest and I could have listened to something else Could someone else please interview Ed Husain? I really want to know what he would have answered.

Guests Beware!

Excellent program of wide ranging global issues. In a 25 minute interview, Stephen Sackur gives you the panorama then goes to the heart of the issue, whoever the guest.Beware guests who try to evade Stephen’s well prepared, penetrating, unrelenting questions!

Shah Rukh Khan interview was disappointing

The interview was rambling as the interviewer was trying to corner and embarrass SRK by trying to pin the issues of Bollywood on him when he clearly is doing more than any one else in Bollywood for women’s issues in India. She should be thankful that SRK deigned to sit with her for the interview. The quality of hardtalk has been slipping of late in general.

Informative interviews

BBC Hardtalk is ny favourite devil's advocate style interview shows in which the interviewers force the best out of the interviewees to get you as much information possible.

Sub-par, unprofessional

After listening to the Pakistani foreign minister interview, the Hardtalk interviewer seems ill-informed and overwhelmingly biased. This affects the types of questions and the professionalism. At one point, the interviewer seems to be talking AT the interviewee. Sub-par of investigative intent of these interviews.

The NPR station plays his interviews but at 4:00 in the morning. It's great that I can now Download it and listen at any time. Love the interviews in Hardtalk.
