Amazing show

Every morning I drive for one and half hour to go to work. I listen to it every day in the morning while driving. Richard, Brandy and Tom are amazing. The standard of information and the analytical insight is top quality. Only improvement I can suggest is to give a quick 10 or 15 minutes summary of the day before when they start as six in the morning. As I start my journey at six and can only listen till 7:30, having a quick summary of the day before show will help me to catch up. Cheers!
