Nice way to start your day
It’s a really good news podcast.
Too brief to deliver the news well. Today they report on the vaccines’ distribution problem and the possibility of using a single dosage. Why would you give one dose of the vaccine when you have plenty? Just as an example.
Always on top of the most important topics
Great reporting, quick summaries. Perfect for a small dose of news which is all that some of us can take so as to not be depressed.
