    Undisclosed percentage of the Monocle brand is owned by Nikkei Inc, which is said to be a”PR machine” for Japanese companies and admin. A private news media, no transparency.

  • Stumble laugh cry

    Andrew muller’s monologues - and associated bruitages - have made me laugh so much, my neighbors now change sidewalks as they see me laugh-stumble up the road listening to this podcast. This radio show deserves an all the awards.

  • Update November 4th 2022. Love the magazine but…

    Awful review with Chris Can’t help themselves….. Love the ‘left’…. Iove Biden….hate Brexit and support the war in Ukraine no matter what!!!! I (still:- great magazine) am a subscriber to the monocle magazine and do like their news but now just more and more obvious that the Globalist , the Briefing and the Daily just find it difficult not to be Pro-brexit, Pro-Biden it drives the entire narrative (essentially just the same as the BBC sadly)

  • Disappointing

    I have been listening to the podcast for over a year. It has always been biased, however, it seems it has become more of a propaganda media. more
