Best on the go

Best on the go podcast for me, focused and concise.

Computer reader?

Is this a computer automated voice reading podcast headlines in staccato? So strange when “The Intelligence” is so good.

Concise and well scripted highlights to get a quick view of what one needs to know in the day to come. Commentary delves a bit deeper than the BBC equivalent into the finance which is good.
