A Great Way to Start the Day
"A five minute summary of the day's news," and it's just great! I listen to this every morning as I get ready for work. Learn what happened in the world while you put your shoes on and eat your breakfast. Just the right length to listen to at home, though I wouldn't want to deal with such a short podcast on the go. As a quick morning news catch-up, it can't be beat. How can you go wrong with NPR? Highly recommended!
News is more meaningful when it's timely
Unfortunately this news does not seem to update until the next day. Somehow NPR/iTunes need to get the podcast available sooner. NPR's own website posts a 15 minute delay on the availability of the podcast, i.e. this should be available by 7:15am ET. Would really love to see this as a timely update! :-)
Good Content, Poor Quality Control
This should be a great podcast. Unfortunately, it suffers from some major quality control problems. The audio engineers or whoever is in charge of editing and posting the content to the feed are doing a very poor job. There are frequently random skips or gaps of dead silence. Today, they posted yesterday's news again. Needless to say, this is very annoying.
