    The World is a US-based international news and analysis program co-produced by the BBC, PRI, and WGBH. It is hosted by Marco Werman.

    Overall

    Having come from listening to NPR's All Things Considered, I found the Audible version of The World sorely lacking. While Audible cuts out commercials from All Things Considered, it leaves in all the "brought to you by" sponsor plugs for its version of The World. Plus, I had a problem with the format of the program itself. For example, the BBC news segment usually repeats the stories that have just been discussed, adding nothing new. Also, the program runs only 5 days a week. In short, unless you are a die-hard fan of this program, you can get more from simply skimming the world news sections of major US news websites. There at least you get photos and audio clips. As for the liberal nature of the content, this program is no more liberal than any other program produced by NPR.
