I totally disagree with the one-star reviewer. As a senior, I find Mossberg to be articulate and quite informative. I've enjoyed each of his reviews and find they are easily comprehensible to the layperson.
I like the podcast except for ....
I wish it was available in audio only. I could get as much from this in audio rather than bogging down my system with so many video clips that I have to store until I'm ready to view. Otherwise great podcast info!!
Don't waste your time
I was expecting much more out of Mr. Mossberg. There was a time that I really enjoyed his WSJ articles, but they have gotten stale and his podcasts are in the same category.
