Sorry but sometimes when guests whose native language isn’t English & esp if they speak painfully slow with that heavy accent one just loses the interest...

Hi, just a thought regarding the milk farming industry. I think there is another significant reason why the demands for cow milk is decreasing is these videos what under covered reporters released to the world where it clearly seen how they cows are treated, so disgusting, inhuman, cruel!!! After seeing these videos people think about why the hell should I support this industry by buying there products??? The older generation like these senators stand next to this industry but this is not the future! Young generation prefers to drink alternative milks and even if the government saves this industry that is just temporary.

the economist was once a place of solid objective news. It has now become agenda driven PC propaganda. So sad to be dropping this once great publication.

The economist's podcasts never work on my Android. If I try downloading them - get "Download failed" error. Playing directly does not work either.

The host needs to speak slowly. She's great in fluency but extremely fast. I have had to replay the audio several times to understand what was stated. especially when these were facts
