The news of the day in a bite sized listen

The news of the day wrapped up and analysed in a nicely timed pod.

Really enjoy but stop butting in

I really enjoy this daily podcast and listen to it on my commute every day. But I find Dermot quite annoying to listen to as he constantly buts in when people are talking !!

A poor development of a podcast, now just waffle

I used to like this podcast when the content was a wrap up of the days news in 15-20 minutes. Now, however, it has turned into half an hour of one story, with the reporters essentially repeating the same information 3-4 times to elongate the podcast. Quite frustrating! It does have ads now, but I understand the need for them, so it’s not even those that annoy me, just the poor content.
