Wall Street Journal tech new- download problems
I love the podcast, but I frequently get messages that the URL is incorrect. I frequently cannot download the episodes.Unsubscribing and then subscribing doesn't solve the problem. E-mails to the WSJ not responded to. If not for this frequent problem would give 5 stars.
Lose the Advertisement
WSJ has been enjoyable, but the advertisement needs to go.
Excellent quick source
This report is quick, to the point, and gives very relevant headlines from the world of tech. I look forward to the the two 5-minute clips daily
