Scholars telling the lay population what they already know, or can deduce on their own, or is better presented by other i.e. foreign experts. Very disappointing time consuming talk radio.
You are paid well, do better.
If one doesn’t mind the speaker running the clock, try C-SPAN; it is more primary source material, and the commentary more useful.
There are other services I admire; however I may continue with listening in the expectation that someone at Brookings will improve this podcast which I feel is important.
I really enjoy the Brookings podcasts. The quality of the events and interviews are superior both in production and content to ... other think tanks podcasts.
Great educational podcast
This podcast goes in depth about topics in a way that's not found elsewhere. I've learned a lot and I highly recommend it!
Valuable content on important issues. Looking forward to seeing what comes next!
More great audio from Brookings
Refreshing approach to policy and politics discussions. Ms. Pita is an excellent moderator.
Educational and entertaining!
This podcast is off to a great start. Covers every issue being discussed (and those being ignored) in this year's election. Can't wait for episode two!
An even richer conversation
I’m really excited about this new Brookings podcast, which is in addition to our Brookings Cafeteria Podcast, that won an award in 2015 for best news and politics podcast. Our host, Adrianna Pita, has a deep familiarity with Brookings scholars and will bring that experience to the table when she interviews her guests. Our guests will include any of our more than 200 resident and non-resident scholars. The debates between them, which can regularly be heard around our halls, will now be available on a more regular basis to the public through this “Intersections” podcast. We hope you enjoy it.
Looking forward ...
Sounds really interesting. Looking forward to its launch.
