Usually a great overview of the week in media, although todays 20 min discussion of Studio 10 at the start of the podcast was snoozeworthy.
Please lead with the new headlines of the week upfront ☺️.
Time to step it up guys
This podcast used to be excellent but has really dropped in quality.
Get the reports proper microphones
Have some more preparation before the show so the reporters aren’t stammering through
Get a clean recording of the guests so it’s not some tinny sounding zoom link that cuts out
Everyone wants this to be good but the simple things are not getting done.
Don’t waste your time
Tried to stay with the podcast post all the personnel changes this year but have given up. Final straw was being told in the year in review ep that an article was popular because ‘people enjoy women fighting’. What year is it???
There are better and more insightful podcasts out there, don’t waste your time with this one.
