Homesick for Bay Area ,

My go-t o news podcast, but ....

I have and will forever boycott America Interrupted. The relentless promotion is unseemly. PBS is better than that.

Pretty Objective

I appreciate their efforts to remain objective. There are times I can tell they’re less than thrilled about a political party, but again the effort is there and better than anything you’ll get on Fox or CNN. For that I applaud you.

The ads don’t bother me (cmon it’s PBS, let them do what it takes to stay alive. We need them). Overall I was happy to find a new source that covered the news in bite sized pieces.

The best part is if I don’t want to hear about the days politics or election news I can just skip that segment.

Great way to get informed without getting overwhelmed.

Love show; please lessen the America Interrupted ads

Love show and regular donator to WETA, love your work; that said, please lessen the America Interrupted add. I really like that podcast, but getting an ad 6 times a night from each segment is a bit much.
