BBC News launches daily podcast ‘The Global Story’

Hosted by Katya Adler, each episode will focus on one story and will draw upon the Beeb’s global journalists and experts from all over the world with a fresh sound and a smart take on the biggest stories of the day.

From Beijing to Boston, Baghdad to Bangalore, our unrivalled reach will take you beyond the headlines on a journey of understanding and exploration.

Katya Adler, host of The Global Story:

“I’m excited to launch The Global Story to challenge, inform and stimulate audiences around the world. We promise our listeners to strip away all those screaming headlines we’re bombarded with, to peel back lazy assumptions and to provide you with fresh global perspectives on the stories that matter. I can’t wait to get started.”

Adler has been a BBC correspondent and editor for more than 25 years, covering conflicts in the Middle East, political and economic crises in Europe, and drug cartels in Mexico. She was a founding host of the award-winning Brexitcast, a BBC podcast that covered the intricacies of Brexit when the UK withdrew from the European Union.

Following the success of the Global News Podcast which brings a complete digest of the latest stories in twice-daily updates, The Global Story will drill deep into a single story offering context and deeper insight, helping podcasters make sense of the global news cycle. From the 27th of November 2023, listeners can download The Global Story every weekday. Each episode will be around 25 minutes long.

Jon Zilkha, Controller, BBC World Service English:

“We’re truly excited to bring listeners this new podcast with the best of the BBC’s global analysis from our teams right around the world. We know how much audiences value trusted news and information from the BBC World Service and I look forward to them hearing the podcast.”
