Great Podcast. Its a MUST SUBSCRIBE!
Very insightful. Tom Fudge is a great host and I am very grateful they take the time to produce a podcast. The topics they cover range from political to pop culture. Each subject is explored at a depth only matched by Terry Gross from Fresh Air. What makes These Days better than Fresh Air is the fact that Fudge interacts on a more personal level with guests and the wide range of topic. He is not emotional, just more relatable. One last thing, If anybody from the show is reading this. More Film Club of the Air!!!! I cant get enough of the trio of Fudge, Marks and Accomondo. It is by far the best and most interesting views on movies, actors and directors. You guys play off each other so well. Please, please more Film Club!!
Tom Fudge is the Man!
Though the stories are generally San Diego based, even non-San Diegans will enjoy the news, stories, insights, and interviews on These Days. Download it now, I'm tellin' you!
Hello from behind the scenes.
Hey reviewers — thanks very much for your comments! I work on this podcast as a back-end specialist. I’m working to make it better @SoCalian and @KCSanDiego.
I’ve heard from you and others about the tech issues facing the listeners. I’ve made a few changes and I hope you enjoy them.
Thanks again! I hope everyone enjoys the new format our great producers and host, Maureen Cavanaugh, are working on, too.
