Nightline is a Real Sleeper
Since the departure of original host and the driving force behind Nightline's content, Ted Koppell, the show has sunk to "news magazine" status. High profile Interviews, in-depth analysis, and timely news stories are gone, replaced with Botox stories, dog tricks, and "bumper sticker" reporter analysis - reducing this once award winning television broadcast to a mere shadow of itself. It's occassionally interesting when the show is "live" but the "short attention span" approach of 6 minute vignettes still shortchanges in-depth analysis, even on news worthy nights. Bring back Ted Koppell!!!!!
Concise and interesting
As a high schooler who has basically no free time and is always working, I try to utilize every minute. I have a 40-minute bus ride to and from school each day, so it is unfortunate that I get motion sick reading things on the bus. This podcast provides a great way for me to get important information about events around the world, as well as detailed reports on interesting subject matter.
For a production of a major US network, this is poorly done podcast. Text descriptions are often not updated from previous shows and/or shows get dropped (new description but old audio). As interesting as Nightline can be, and as nice as the idea of at least hearing it without commercial interruption might be, you cannot count on this podcast as a substitute for the show.
