Customer Reviews

PLEASE do not cherry-pick the facts

Initially, I was impressed with the content and quality of this podcast. Unfortunately, that ended very quickly with the biased story on Venezuela. Venezuela has not refused humanitarian aid for its people, as their story states, but it has only refused aid from the US and Brazil. Venezuela HAS accepted humanitarian aid from Russia and China. Omitting such simple facts as these shows that The Skimm is just another mouthpiece for the corporate mainstream media. If you really want to differentiate yourselves from other media outlets, please allow listeners the opportunity to come to their own logical conclusions based on facts and not half-truths such as these.

So Convenient

Love this podcast. I'm a regular subscriber to their daily emails, but can't always find the time to read them. This podcast fills me in on the news and the highlights of the emails, and I can listen to it while I work! I'm a big fan!

Sounds like a high school kid reading a research report

This is a bit brutal to listen to. Sounds like a Jr High or High School student wrote a weekly news report and had to stand up infront of class and deliver it. If you need made some really really basic and dumbed down news read to you, then subscribe. Or go looking for some adults to listen to until they get a new newscaster.
