Absolutely the best
This podcast has the best signal-to-noise ratio in terms of actual information you receive of any podcast I've encountered. It's thick with honest, useful information on daily events. You will feel smarter after having listened to it. I use it as a kind of radio Tivo, allowing me to listen to the News Hour on my iPod in the car, since I can never catch it on the radio or TV otherwise.
as you might expect.
Love this podcast...
As always, the content is superb. I love the podcast delivery mechanism since I can now get the podcast when I travel abroad (which I do often). Only thing better would be video podcasts. Cheers
