Great

New show that found its feet fast. Complementary hosts. Smart, concise and funny. Perfect lenght to listen to as I do my post-breakfast clean up etc.

Sutractable ,

Teething problems, but worked through them...

This is my second review replacement.. liked it at first, then it became way too giggly, but now it's settled down into something very likeable. Commentary done with intelligence and humour is my favourite form. :)

Great way to start the day

What A Day is awesome. A morning blast of news with a positive upbeat vibe. Love the hosts and can’t wait for the next episode to drop.
Read some of the reviews and left wondering if they’re listening to the same show! Gee, people can be judgemental and mean sometimes. Don’t listen to em Crooked, ya all doing an amazing job. Keep up the great work.
