Very useful information

Thank you former useful information. Just try not to talk over each other or completing each other sentences. It comes across chaotic, however I appreciate the transparency

The Podcast Madison Needs!

I am so grateful for this podcast—a true community service for Madisonians to know what's happening in our city and in Wisconsin as a whole!

I give the local coverage 5 stars. I took one star off this review because the hosts often start by talking about national and international news, which isn't as helpful given how accessible those types of news are through other platforms and sources. (It also makes the podcast episodes longer than 10 minutes.)

Your coverage of local news is insightful, well-reported, and wide-ranging. I hope you'll do more of it and am grateful for all I've been able to learn from It's Only 10 Minutes and Madison365!
