One of my daily must-listens
This podcast is a must-listen for me every morning, and along with the Gray Lady's "front page" podcast, provides a short, to-the-point summary of "what's news" in today's paper, first-thing in the morning. The narrators are good, although they sometimes speak a little to fast. But I'd recommend it to anyone who considers themselves a "news junkie."
Marlo and her cupcakes ?
I've been listening to Marlo's ludicrous cupcake story six times a day for weeks now. Haven't you got any other ads ? It's bad enough that you have a four minute podcast with two one minute ads. Do they both have to be the repetitive yet touching Horatio Alger story of Marlo Scott and her brave use of credit to bring cupcakes to the hungry masses ? Show us some mercy and rotate your ads !
Loved this Podcast for the longest time....but for a 2-3 minute Podcast to put in two ad's (same exact ones) has become increasingly annoying! I'm debating on whether or not to unsubscribe.
