More giggling please

I grow weary of the plodding seriousness with which these three humorless presenters slog through the week’s political news. Please! Would a few moments of levity so mar your delivery of information? This podcast confirms my every stereotype of NPR personnel as wooden, effete, and impersonal.

Jokes are off-putting; but important source

I love the actual information you present on the show, but the horribly contrived , usually song-lyric-related puns really detract from the overall quality of the show. The NPR version manages to be informative and fast-paced while retaining a sense of fun. This Wisconsin Public Radio version unfortunately does not hold up well under comparison. Hire a producer who can add that element of fun without it becoming sickening or silly

Inside jokes wastes time &...

...drops the train of thoughts your reporting stimulates which is meant to keep the public informed-the real goal behind maintaining democracy. Your reporting is essential & not a Saturday Night Live type of state sideshow. Refrain from inside jokes that leave the listeners in the dust. Thank you each, as you each have so much to offer without the comic sideshow that falls flat when only insiders ‘get it’.
