In Europe, the Netherlands has the highest number of cases. Also: a special report from Colombia where mass killings are continuing five years after a peace deal with left-wing rebels, and the Indian stand-up comic who says he may have to give up his routine because of Hindu fundamentalists.

Predicting the recent future!We listen to this show about 5 days to two weeks in the past as a reminder of stories that pop up on our favourite shows from Canada and the CBC. For example, it is Tues. Jan. 15th, 2019, and we are listening to the stories from last week, Tues. Jan. 8, 2019. It is fun, because we already know the outcome of certain stories, and we will “talk back” to the Global News reporters because we know what is going to happen! Yet, there are stories and facts that come from BBC Global News that are not reported anywhere or on any platform in NorthAmerica. BBC is amazing and informed. The stories come from first sources, which is quite rare in Canada, CBC often uses reporters talking to reporters who heard from other reporters. It is second and third sources and sometimes disappointing. Thank goodness for podcasts!.Score: 5/5

The facts they present are credible and accurate. They do tend to interview more leftist individuals, but the reporters themselves remain neutral and professional by not favouring one side of a story or another. 3. It's only 22 minutes long, so it's great for a morning commute or evening coffee break. 4. Their reporting is thorough, highly detailed and very well-rounded considering their time constraints.

Great but Biased on AfricaI’ve been listening to them for over 2 years. I live on the West Coast of Canada. Great true global news podcast and great journalism. Except when they report on Africa (especially noticeable during the Covid19 pandemic). They name other countries in Eurasia, North America, South America by name (I.e: Canada, US, Italy)... but they only ever say Africa (sometimes South Africa) when they are reporting on African numbers. It’s a shameful remnant of colonialism and it’s very insulting. I’m in Canada and it does not affect me personally but it is very disrespectful.

The current president missteps appear to be pounced upon and his personal life laid out for all to pick through but when it comes to the new President Elect; his pass, his state of mind and his past policies are simply overlooked as though to give him a pass.

Bleeding HeartThis news is much better and relatively unbiased when compared to other sources. It is, however, obviously biased in the climate change, migrant, and UK COVID response debates. Even though the BBC World Service are linked to the government, they make no real effort to investigate and communicate the very difficult choices policy makers have to make. To these reporters, cutting carbon, letting in floods of migrants, and continuing endless lockdowns have no drawbacks. I expect more from Britons. Oh and as a neutral, American listener, their UK political analyst is so slanted against their Conservative Party and anything related to Brexit that it’s difficult for even me to listen to his contributions. There is nothing about the lack of any real policy coming from Labor, just free coverage of their hollow criticisms of those trying to govern in difficult times. Still, I listen to every episode because of the state of ‘news’ coverage in the US..Score: 4/5

Excellent News SummaryWhilst trying to receive the "low-down", it is *very* easy to be overloaded with information, whether it be significant, or otherwise. The BBC's global news podcast is an excellent summary of the news - actual news. It certainly is not a substitute for reading (or listening to) a fully fledged news source.

Easy way to stay informedBBC World News is an easy way to keep up with world news. I find today it is all too easy to be locally focused and become ignorant concerning global issues. BBC World News provides an unbiased and informative reports on breaking issues. We can’t know or understand every issue in the world but BBC World provides you a great overview and then you can select news stories that you are personally interested in. Thank you BBC Team.
