I listen every morning while putting on my makeup and this is such a good overview of what’s going on in the world. Big stories that I know a bit about, and surprising ones from around the world. I love it! Also like the guy’s voice.
Need a new narrator
Content is good but previous narrators have been much easier on the ears. When listening in the house it’s like a constant drone - minimal inflection - almost unlistenable.
Arrives too late
I listen to similar podcasts every morning. While content is interesting, it shows up much later than the other options. If you have to leave for work, you won’t be able to listen. News is stale by the time I finish work. For example, it’s 7:48AN and it still isn’t available yet.
