  • Mandatory listening for me

    I love this ABC program and I never skip one. It gives such a good perspective on current affairs with the voices of specialists and analysts. It is so important to me as we try to decant all the other readings and news we have received. Geraldine’s great intellect is obviously a prime joy but her tone and her voice are also pure delights. I am only worry that one day she may want to retire! Thank you so much for making the world a lot more understandable.

  • Saturday Extra

    This is compulsory listening each week. It tops my list of great ABC radio programs. In particular over recent years I have appreciated the calm analysis of China - a most valuable contribution to our understanding. The only criticism I have is the handling of listener response. You request listener feedback. For whose benefit? On air listeners' texts get short shrift. You promise them, then run out of time - a minor irritation. Please keep up the splendid work.
