Stick to The Daily
NPRs morning podcast is a poor substitution for NYTs' The Daily. The fact there was even an iota of time dedicated to Beyoncé this morning is a far cry from the "most important news" I should know first thing in the morning. As a regular NPR listener, I am disappointed in the content and am sticking to Mike Barbaro at the NYT for relevant news.
Just what I needed!
This is exactly what I didn't know I was looking for! Great podcast to put on during breakfast or in the shower and get caught up for the day. Thanks NPR!!!
Strong Start, Very Disappointing Swing
I was excited to try out a news podcast that would give me the bite size details of today's important stories. Podcast started strong, then took a swing to Beyoncé/Jay-Z anniversary chatter. Why? Closing out the podcast discussing the "Queen" completely put a sour taste in my mouth. I'm a 25-year old looking to escape the constant bombardment of the Kardashians/People Magazines/etc. Apparently, this is not the place.
I didn't come to a NPR news podcast for TMZ-style celeb gossip nonsense. How is that remotely one of the most important news headlines to include in a 12 minute segment? Boggles my mind.
I will give the podcast another listen. Fingers crossed they realize it'd be better to set themselves apart than to be one of countless other institutions covering celeb "news"
