Best local Austin news podcast
Love listening to this every weekend. So nice to be able to hear all the local stories at once. The music is super cool and refreshing too. All around a great podcast. Please keep it up!
Good content, not so good execution
I really like the content and the fact that I can get a whole week's worth of KUT local happenings in one podcast. What is an utter fail for me is the 3 hour download for the podcast! Other podcasts download in seconds to minutes. Something must be wrong with the server that hosts this podcasts because it is painfully slow.
Wonderful, Much Needed Reporting for Austin
I’ve been a big fan of Nathan Bernier and frequently listening to his reporting via radio on KUT. This podcast is really a stroke of genius for KUT. As Austin grows in size and we grow more busy it’s nice to have a once a week “check in” to see whats new in Austin city politics, how the city handles growing, and my favorite part, food reviews. Bernier does not only a great job to mix in and highlight the different layers of Austin like music, he also includes the surrounding hill country areas. Thank you for this fantastic podcast!
