A great snapshot of the news to start the day.

Best news podcast around

Thanks to this podcast I get an easy fix of news into my day as I’m driving to the station and I can now participate in adult conversations for the first time. Thanks for all you do squiz team!

Informative with the right balance

Clare and the team have nailed this format. The right mix of information & explanation. In depth enough so I can understand each issue or event and most importantly - never ever condescending or haughty. Good job guys, thank you
