Customer Reviews


Good topics, good discussion, and a bit of humor. A good way to start the day.

Smart, Direct & Concise

Their "Take" includes much more then the daily rundown of the new. The is always some features/stories that you don't expect but glad that you listened to. Those are the ones that I like to share with others. Since each day has many segments I pick the ones that interest me. Also I skip the news that I already know too much about because of the media drown out.

one of my faves

I love in depth news coverage and shows that spend an hour on a single topic, however, not every show needs to do this. There are lots of places to find that kind of detailed coverage on Public radio. This show covers a lot, gets straight to the point, but is still somehow satisfying. I think the Takeaway is pitch perfect, and definitely has flow.
