I enjoy guardian long reads, but it sounds like the natural gaps between sentences have been chopped out. Sounds weird, off-putting.

Yet according to the Greenland survey, the northern ice shelf is the thickest it's been for 120 years. Who should i believe?

except that this is false. stats show that male criminals receive 73% longer sentences for the same crimes under same conditions as the female. men and women both have more compassion toward women. it's all cosmetic - she looks more deserving of pity even when she's not. but podcasts like this just keep the lie going

Excellent. Very refreshing to hear a man who properly straddles both cultures speak about China and in such a compelling, interesting way.

Rubbish. The BDS Movement is supported by the Palestinian Authority and PLO. The only organisation shamed is Israel. Israel already is a Pariah State...and it has achieved this status all by itself, through its barbaric treatment of the Palestinians, the killing of Journalists, Medics and students and the jailing and torture of Palestinian Children. This was an appalling article. what has happened to the Guardian ???
