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
