America Abroad

Reviews For America Abroad

Wow! I can't believe I've never heard this program until today. I'm a veritable public radio addict, and this is one of the best. I have nothing but love for Madeleine Brand. I will highly recommend to my students.
Compelling and informative are not mutually exclusive. The absolute best radio has to offer. I only wish they posted a new podcast more than once a month. Good job AA team.
Why would conservatives/Republicans want to quash such excellent programming. What threatens them?? Intelligence?
My first encounter of PRI's America Abroad programme was tuning into the "Battleground Lebanon" episode on NPR. The episode supplied a detailed background for me to make sense of the issues in and around the region. Along with the likes of The Economist magazines, America Abroad is a great resource to learn how the world works.
I plan on having my students listen to the segment about the political history of the Modern Olympics - truly fascinating, well reported and a great addition to your regular Podcast listening.
Well done, interesting, informative, delves deep into the history and background of today's most relevant issues. Refreshingly neutral, fact-based, and non-partisan (don't get me wrong, I love to bash looney liberalism any day of the week, but it's nice to take a break from all the opining and get some hard facts). Subscribe to this podcast and add some real facts to your political discourse portfolio ("bush lied!" is getting old (and it was never true to begin with)).
This is an outstanding program if you have time for more depth because they provide relevant context to news stories. I am really impressed with Ray Suarez' ability to explain background and nuances while keeping the show interesting. (They probably wouldn't think this is a compliment but I also find it to be 'entertaining' as well.)
