Alex has found her groove
Really appreciate how more grounded Alex’s reporting has become. She’s calmer and more seemingly sincere. Always sharp. I look forward to her growing confidence and occasional humor. Rachel Maddow has been a hard act to follow! Congrats Alex.
Podcast great- advertising is off putting and Alex Jones like
I have really enjoyed Alex Wagner in replacement of rachel. No concerns with the actual podcast, but it concerns me that the advertisements being played are quackery exploitative medical stuff that disparage mainstream medicine. “Eat this bar to lower your cholesterol in 8 weeks without the dangerous side effects of medication” “try this testosterone supplement” but the fine print is “none of this is validated and talk to your doctor”. So I am a physician and expect this of right wing conspiracy media- it’s exploitative. But I am disappointed that msnbc is using this type of advertising for pseudoscience and non validated supplements that make misleading, oversimplified and sometimes dangerous claims. Dealing with these ads as a doctor with my patients has become the Bain of my existence. Honestly I will stop supporting msnbc podcasts if this is how they choose to fund their shows.
Because to me the content of the podcast includes the podcast and all of the other content the channel chooses to expose its listeners to, I have to say I give the experience 3 stars - 2 knocked down because of this quack advertising.
What’s with the noise?
This is a professional production, right? So what’s with the whip-like loud noise in the background near the beginning of the shows? Not all, but many. And twice on last nights show. Why is this permitted to keep happening?
