The best?

As a podcast addict, I'm constantly amazed at and grateful for this show. The quality is unparalleled, the host Martine and her colleagues are *so* charming & dilligent, and the content and production are exquisite.

Bravo !

Like the show; hate the theme music!

Absolutely love host Martine - she does an amazing job. Thank you Martine!!! The theme music drives me a little nuts- the ringing of the bell specifically is jarring. Otherwise I enjoy the show. Not quite as polished as the NYTimes the Daily but similarly informative.
