Great but...

Super little podcast, but if you’re catching up on a few at a time, the volume level difference between the morning and evening briefings are annoying. Please adjust the levels!

Too Many Ads, Too Little Substance

As a loyal listener, I’m contemplating unsubscribing from “The Two-Minutes Briefing” due to a recent shift in the podcast’s dynamics. What was once a concise two-minute update now comprises three minutes, with only one minute of actual content and a staggering two minutes of advertisements, split at the beginning and end. It’s a perplexing decision, making up nearly 70% of the podcast’s duration. While I appreciate the need for ads, this seems excessive, especially considering the show’s previous ad-free episodes.

Moreover, the recent change in hosts has brought about a noticeable decline in quality, with a monotonous tone overshadowing the engaging content that once captivated listeners. The combination of a less compelling host and an overwhelming ad presence has left me contemplating whether to continue supporting the podcast. Unfortunately, I can no longer recommend it to others. It’s disheartening to witness such a decline in what was once a valuable and time-worthy source of information.

Terrible Narration

This used to be a good podcast but the guy they have narrating it now is absolutely useless. He basically sounds like a robot with zero inflections and just a flat boring monotone voice.
