Consistently informative, entertaining and surprising
Spend an hour with Beth Ruyak and the Insight team each day and you are guaranteed to come away with something new... be it information, awareness or perspective about the people and topics important to our community today. You're likely also to be entertained by the parade of musicians, authors, actors and other creatives who pass through the CapRadio studios to perform live and share ideas. And no matter how many Insight shows you've heard, chances are you'll be surprised every so often with a segment that really caught your fancy, like Beth's report from the Sochi Olympics or live, on-air beer tastings and cooking demonstrations. Listening to Insight, live or via podcast, is definitely an hour well spent.
Good NorCal News
As KQED can't get their podcasting $h!t together, this is my go-to podcast for state level political news. Ms Ruyak isn't the greatest host but I've heard worse and I like the music that is included in many episodes.
