    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.

    Mikey says: "OK news marred by sloppy recording"
    "Great way to keep up to date!"
    Overall

    I love this program. I find that it has an excellent mix - news, world events, arts - and the daily "geo quiz" has me racking my brains each time. (I get immense satisfaction when I get them right!)

    I now find that in conversation I'm able to contribute meaningfully about people, places and events. Prior to this show, I would have been blissfully unaware.

    Amazed that people think that it has a political bias! What it does do (and very well) is give you insight into events from a local perspective, rather than from the usual "studio in America" perspective. Perhaps interviews with non-english-speaking people - some of them from different political or religious backgrounds - makes it biased? Not in my book.

    I listen to this one while I'm exercising - and now love it so much that I consider that my Audible subscription is for this program, plus a "free" book each month!

    Give it a try if you're bored with "world" news that barely ventures off the North American land mass.
