Better if podcast posted regularly.

Too many times this podcast doesn't post for that day or too long after the original airing. If one is to be an advertiser on these podcasts the podcast must be posted regularly.

Largely Pointless

While always covering "the top story", this show almost never moves any story forward. It's like a news show concocted by a P.R. department. Violin crescendos and false equivalencies, but no journalism or hard questioning.
