Rated 4 out of
worth a listen
A current affair and news program run by young reporters, concerning issues related to young Australians. Sometimes insightful, daring, aggravating or just plain bizarre... The content covers a large scope of topics which can sometimes work against the program due to their relatively short daily allocated time. Tom Tilley on the whole is an awesome host, his aggressiveness on interviews can be both a blessing and a curse...he presses when needed, but sometimes fires off multiple questions before the previous one is completely answered, causing the interviewee to only give partial responses.
The show is produced professionally, there are stings between stories made of of interesting sound bites and music. There are occasional technically issues with the podcast uploads where sections are cut off from the begining or end, but on the whole the show is reliably and proficiently constructed.
The team appears to have a diverse range of opinions and views, but tend to have a left wing bias...but this is not a complete surprise as Hack is run by the ABC.
But despite it's issues, Hack is still worth a listen.
