⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Excellent podcast. Claire Murphy has the best voice for the news.

My Go To Daily News Source

The best way to catch up on anything important at the start (and now end) of every day. The Quicky gives me what I need, and I’ve had so many side quests as a result of the deep dives.

Claire Murphy and Em Gillespie have *the* best and easiest to listen to voices. Now, If I could just get them to read me my emails, maybe I’d be interested in them, too?!

Love your work, Team Quicky!

AlexVioletKury ,

It’s my daily!

Love love love the Quicky. It’s my go to every morning and complements listening to Outloud. Claire has an awesome voice too. So engaging.
