Keep up the great journalism...
How come more people don't know about your website? It's fantastic and gives hope that true journalism hasn't died. A truly uninformed public could become better-informed citizens by visiting your website. Thanks to Frank Rick of the NYTimes for directing me your way.
Missing the podcast
Great podcast, great website and great reporting. This is a must listen for anyone interested with in-depth investigations of issues that affect all Americans. Please don't leave us hanging, I have been jonesing for the latest podcast.
Covering stories missed elsewhere.
While the production values are a bit dry, sounding very much like a local public radio interview show - the content is as excellent as the journalism on Propublica's website. I don't check the website every day, so it's nice to get have a program delivered to my mp3 player that provides me with the great investigative journalism these reporters are doing.
