Did not meet expectations....
Big NYT reader here; was looking forward to be able to listen to this in the shower/on way to work and get a detailed bullet point briefing of news - like a roundup, a la a more in depth NPR hourly briefing (NPR's only lasts 3-4 min; was hoping this would be a longer version of that). Instead, it's a lot of detail about one headline. IMO, would be better to focus on 5-6 stories for a well rounded news podcast.
Good but missed one huge fact while giving a lot of time to the right
How can you do a story on the Hobby Lobby case stating only that it is "family-owned"? In fact Hobby Lobby is owned by a corporation (whose shareholders are family members). This is a distinction with a very big difference- judge Gorsuch had to find that corporations are capable of having religious views. That is an abomination on reason and rationality that will have ramifications far into the future, no matter how silver-tongued the writer.
My new go to
What a great concept. Can't wait for the dailies. The Run-Up was my "go to" podcast during the election. Michael Barbaro is a fantastic host; all the hard work & dedication is evident in delivering high quality journalism.... Grateful for someone seeking deeper truths in a bizarro world of alternative facts, helping us make sense of the senseless.
