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."
Good overview of the day's news
This is on my "morning listen" list: it's a good overview of what's going on in the world - especially things that might have a business effect.
Love this podcast!!!
One question...What happened to the old format where you just read the frontpage rather than narrate it? I, personally, like the old format much better.
