A good program and nice recap of current events which presents the advantage of hearing what happened overnight. Timeliness is a continuing frustration. There is no point in posting the podcast at the r d if the day when it’s out of date. It needs to be released as a podcast in a timely manner -early in the day rather than quite consistently around the time that sister program The World Today makes the earlier news program automatically out of date. Not sure why the ABC doesn’t quite get the podcast listeners’ obvious expectations; maybe budget cuts, disinterest or tardiness? It shouldn’t be hard to post the program immediately after radio broadcast but we’ll live in hope that Aunty will eventually catch up with the new world, I suppose.

Self obsessed

I’m a regular listener to AM, a mostly trusted source with a good host in Sabra. But on occasions the reportage is infuriatingly blind to the bigger picture. Prompted to write today to respond to the wail about cuts to the abc (described as “vandalism “)and loss of abc jobs - all extremely tragic- but the insensitivity to the massive cuts the abc has just announced to its own COMMISSIONED PRODUCTION thereby impacting on the film and tv production sector. Today AM wasted the opportunity to discuss the likely impact of the ABC’s own decision to cut the external production sector with Arts minister Paul Fletcher on the program to discuss the government’s long awaited support to this same external production sector.

Typical ABC garbage

If you want more sanctimony and fewer facts, tune into these muppets
