Customer Reviews

A must listen

A great summary of the last 24 hours.

Aussie listener

This Aussie listener relies on Up First for a quick take on what is going on in the US each day. Balanced and well researched it’s always a pleasure to listen to this team.

Great for O/seas listeners

I live in Sydney and listen every day to this podcast. Best 15 mins summary of US and some world news that there is. A similar podcast devoted to world news would be fantastic. One suggestion - please dont introduce the female co-presenter as "And she is Rachel Martin ..." Please say "And this is .." or "And my co-host is ..." It sounds such a put down otherwise.
