Great but very late
This is a really good podcast, but for the past week or two it's just not available to download directly to my phone when I'm on my actual commute. It's now 10:46 AM and I still don't see today's edition when I try to download directly on my phone.
Half of a Great Show
World Update in the Morning is a staple for my listening ( as is the World Service when I can), and just like I wish I had Aleister Cooke in Podcast, I wish I had the whole show. World Update is comprehensive, thorough, and the best of the best bring the details of the story right to me, from the Tasmanian mentions ( my home State) to the full coverage of the US and the world, World update does in an hour what some shows can never do. I even got a mention of my favorite band today, so Thanks Dan !! I hope you see this, you are a past Master of excellent radio. Make it an hour please !! But a half is still good ...
great podcast for the commute
really makes it go by much faster. keep it coming!
