Aggregated reviews for The HeirPod - Royal News & Interviews

Go behind palace walls with ABC News royal contributor Omid Scobie as he dives deep into the latest stories from the House of Windsor with insider interviews and special guests.

Charming and delightful   (5/5)

Very well informed and conversational at the same time. I believe they travel with the royals and are on site at Appearances which means they know more than many journalists. One small issue, Emily is much less loud than her cohost which can lead me to having to adjust volume often. Maybe a mic issue?

The true royal experts! (They have the coolest job EVER!)   (5/5)

I ADORE Emily & Omid! They are an absolutely delightful pair and I want nothing more than to be their best friends and have their job! They always have the dish on the royals and share it with humor!

#1 Royal Family Podcast   (5/5)

I’ve listened to a few different podcasts that focus on The Royal Family, but On Heir is the absolute best. Omid and Emily are real royal reporters and truly know their stuff. Not only that, but they still keep the podcast fun and entertaining. I look forward to each new episode!!

A great podcast   (5/5)

A very enjoyable listen! Knowledgeable, funny, and interesting. I’d love to know more about the people who work closely with the royals at the palace - what is a day in the life of a private security? How to they address the royals (HRH or just William)? Do leaks of information to the magazines usually come from one person, in your experience? Thanks!

Favorite royal show   (5/5)

This is my favorite royal podcast. It is informative and fun at the same time. They are very professional. I am sorry that on Twitter Emily is not appreciated.

Not to Miss!!   (5/5)

Every podcast is a treat with Omid and Emily’s witty and factual commentary. A must for any royal follower!

Better then some other royal podcasts   (5/5)

I love listen to these two! Their job is to report on the royals so I find their reporting believeable and well put together. They are better than some other royal podcasts out there. I can't wait for new episodes to drop! Keep up the great work!

New   (5/5)

This is my first ever experience with podcasts since I hv always refrained from them. Listened to three episodes of yours (binge) and I subscribed. No need to be any where else. Thanks.

Love, but fix the sound   (5/5)

Love the podcast, but I have to turn my volume very loud to be able to hear your voices

Delightful   (5/5)

Emily and Omid play beautifully off of each other and are a joy to listen to. They both report responsibly instead of speculating, and I look forward to it every week! I've been a Royals fan for a long time, and it's so nice to listen to the two of them. Keep up the great work.

The Best!   (5/5)

This is, by far, the best royal coverage out there. Emily Andrews and Omid Scobie are respectful but not fawning and give us a great combination of what the royals are doing and how it plays in the United Kingdom. They spice their coverage up with a dash of “behind-the-scenes at Kensington Palace banter. The quality of the podcast is superb. They seem to be aware of the popularity of the royals with American audiences and make sure that perspective is highlighted. I can’t wait for Friday’s and this podcast.

Love Love Love 💛   (5/5)

Thanks #onheir for bringing royal news to the U.S. via your podcast. I’ve been a Royal lover since the Charles/ Diana days and have been waiting to find an outlet that provides accurate information about the Royals! Your podcast is refreshing, colorful and humorous! Keep bringing us the latest on our favorite Royals!! 🤗

Get the real story from 2 fun reporters!   (5/5)

This is where I go to get the facts about what is happening in the lives of the royals. I’m very worried about Lupo the dog. What’s happened to Lupo?!

Meghan’s Firsts   (5/5)

I absolutely love this team. I look forward to the notification. Welcome back Emily.

Best podcast on royal news!   (5/5)

Informative without being too gossipy.

So good- I’m not sure what happened   (5/5)

Great podcast with hosts who know their stuff. Suddenly stopped- anyone know what happened?

My go to podcast   (5/5)

Most informative royal family podcast out there. Love,love,love. ❤️❤️

Yessss!   (5/5)

Finally! The details I’m thirsty for! Omid and Emily are the best.

My #1 Royals Podcast   (5/5)

Thursdays are awfully exciting when new episodes are released. Emily & Omid are there to clear up any misinformation we’ve heard about the royals throughout the week and give us REAL insight into what is happening with our favorite royal family.

Fantastic podcast covering the British Royal Family   (5/5)

As a baby boomer American, I have been fascinated with the Royal Family. I have seen most of the Royal major events starting with Prince Charles being the most eligible bachelor in the world. I so wish there had been podcast like On Heir back then. Omid Scobie and Emily Andrews know their stuff and they explain things so well. They have great insight into the Royal Family. I look forward every week to On Heir. Thanks to Omid & Emily for all their hard work. I know it has to be difficult to find the time to do this every week but I am grateful that they do! Highly recommended!!

They know of what they speak   (5/5)

On Heir covers the royal family plus how the royal family *is covered*. Two people who know the history behind the headlines. Love it.

Simply the best   (5/5)

Listening to ON HEIR is one of the highlights of my week. I enjoy following news of the royal family from across the pond and have listened to multiple royals-themed podcasts, but Emily and Omid are the most thoughtful and well-researched without taking themselves too seriously. Long live ON HEIR and God save the Queen!

Best Royal Podcat   (5/5)

I follow a few royal podcasts and this is by far my favorite. I love the perspective we get from two folks closely associated with the royal family through their royal press jobs. No silly speculation or discussion about how the Queen loves one person more than the other. Just great information, fun banter, and facts based on inside knowledge. I find myself listening to the episodes over and over (bc I’ve listened to them all now)! Do yourself a favor and subscribe already!!!

Great Royal Podcast with all the detes!   (4/5)

Real royal facts and figures —along with some fun. Not speculative in that millennial way. Journalist worth listening to...

More Episodes!   (5/5)

I love this podcast and want to keep hearing about the royal family. When will you put out more podcast episodes?

Love!!   (5/5)

So informative and fun. I love listening and covering the many members of the Royal family!

Royally fun & informative!   (5/5)

Have really enjoyed listening to this podcast with Emily and Omid! Even though the royal wedding of the year is now behind us, please, please, please keep the episodes coming! Love it!!

Top Royal podcast   (5/5)

This is one of my top 2 royal podcasts. Emily and Omid are enjoyable to listen to and are very informed because of their years of experience. I listen to it the minute it comes out.

Love these podcasts!!!   (5/5)

Omid and Emily not only know all the great scoops every week but have loads of Royal knowledge in general that really add to the podcasts. Plus they have great on air chemistry together! Wished they aired two podcasts a week!

So Fun! So Informative!   (5/5)

I love this podcast! Researched. Enthusiastic. FIVE STARS!!!

Love!!   (5/5)

Great podcast, entertaining and makes you feel like you are talking with old friends. Thank you!!

Love it   (5/5)

Good insight - answers questions- not mean spirited or snarky... just fun

My Favorite Podcast   (5/5)

Beyond thrilled that Emily and Omid have come together to discuss all things English royalty. As royal reporters, these two have a unique insight that I love to listen to. Each week they focus on trending royal topics without being overly gossipy. This is by far my Favorite Podcast, I learn something new every time!

Emily & Omid are the perfect pair!   (5/5)

My daughter & I are coming over from the US for the #Royal Wedding! I feel like I am getting a great scoop on all the wedding news. The practical information about timing, security, crowds, route the carriage is taking, etc. is especially helpful to us. We decided to come directly to Windsor as soon as we arrive, rather than lingering in London after learning Windsor could be closed down if it becomes overcrowded. Thanks so much from your fans in the US!

Great fun!   (5/5)

As a long time royalty buff (think fact collecting teen in the 80s!) I have thoroughly enjoyed On Heir. Emily and Omid are fun, knowledgeable and easy to listen to. Cheers!

Great Information!   (5/5)

As an American listener and royals fan, I really appreciate this podcast for their interesting discussions and topics covered. Emily and Omid do a great job sharing the scoop on what’s going on in the world of the royals. Fascinating podcast to listen to ahead of the royal wedding and I look forward to listening to it long after.

Fun & Delightful   (5/5)

Emily and Omid are the best! I look forward to each and every Thursday when their podcast comes out! They do a great job at featuring questions!

Fantastic ‘Cast, Needs Sound Work   (4/5)

Great podcast, both hosts really know their stuff, but sometimes it’s very hard to hear Omid as the volume of his voice seems to fluctuate throughout the podcast.

Royal Reporters in the Know   (5/5)

I’ve listened to a few royals pods looking for newsy news, not gossipy news. These guys add professional, informative, and entertaining. And they take listeners questions! 5 stars!

Lovely & informative podcast   (4/5)

I love the whole podcast . The fact that it’s not just royal wedding news but also news about the charity work of other working royals.

Great show, well done   (5/5)

A lot of fun, full of information without being “gossipy”.

factual and interesting   (4/5)

think they have begun finding their groove to have a nice balance between the two hosts. good info and interesting chat.

Darling Duo!   (5/5)

I'm fairly new to the British Royals and I found it hard to keep up with the current news about the family and its most popular members. A friend from twitter recommended I follow Emily and then I learned about her podcast with Omid. They know what they're talking about but do not bore you while giving you a clear rundown of the current news. Emily and Omid have great chemistry and a good understanding of these Royals. I defintely recommend!

Emily and Omid Know What They’re Talking About   (5/5)

Both reporters are on the royal beat, always covering royal engagements and sharing photos and videos with fans on social media. It’s really interesting to hear them review the events they’ve covered on this podcast. A lot of what they can’t fit into their stories they share here. It’s great!
