Bbc world this week

Absolutely essential listening. More than just a recap of the so-called top stories—it identifies important stories that didn’t get much play and highlights them, and puts the headlines you’ve already read in context. So even if I have kept up all week, I always learn something new.

Great, concise summary of weekly news

There aren't that many podcasts out there that provide a summary of the week's news. I've tried a few other ones, and I like this one the most. I prefer weekly news summaries over daily or hourly or breaking news. since I think a weekly format gives people the time to reflect upon what stories are actually important instead of reporting the thing that just happened a minute ago. I agree with another reviewer here; I wouldn't mind if the program were slightly longer and there was a little more depth for each story, but I'm glad this podcast exists.

A suggestion

I switched to this podcast because the daily BBC world report podcast was too much to keep up with every day. I enjoy the weekend edition, but wish it were more extensive — maybe twice the length, twice as many stories. The daily podcasts were too much for me, but this weekly review isn't quite enough.

Loving this podcast from Florida, U.S.A.

I can't express how much I appreciate the BBC world service. Our local news outlets in America are highly influenced by politics, $, personal interests and rarely cover world affairs. I used to catch the world service on my local public radio station, with my radio alarm clock - but since smart phones have come about we don't use our alarm clocks anymore - this fills the void! The only pitfall is waiting a week.

I don’t listen to it...

…but I feel sorry for it because BBC has been pushing it for a year or so and it has garnered only one comment and a handful of ratings. If BBC weren’t funded by taxpayers, this unwanted and unneeded show would be cut.
