Missing text information but ok news source

The podcast is more or less quite informative if it comes to everything that is happening outside EU - also, good quality and length.
One problem though: there were texts running in parallel to the spoken word, but since a few weeks not anymore! That was the cherry on top!

Happy pod not happy

I rely on this news source a lot despite the obvious-inobviousness of naming certain forms of discrimination like anti-queer hate. Still appreciate the good work of fact checking and being on spots where things happen.

But the new addition, the “happy pod”, makes me more frustrated than happy because most topics there are on a very different level to the usual political news. It would be great to hear mostly political “happy news” on this news source. This way it feels even more like “there are no real happy news on a global/political scale so we just scrap together whatever individually sentimental stories we find”.

Why the ads within the podcast?!?

Loved the quality of information to date - but the recent addition of ads within the podcast is super annoying. Ads at the start and end of the show weren’t enough?
