Great start for every morning
Love to listen to RN while driving to work, however it could be better if it can be streamed to the same day on postcard. Feels strange to listen to yesterday’s new everyday....
Radio National this morning was brilliant with Norman Swan
Finally an interviewer that knows how to drill down when a politician tries to evade answering questions. I hope we see more of Norman in this role.
Episodes cut off
I love the individual story feed of the show but lately many of the episodes cut off before the segment has finished which is very frustrating.
