Excellent Information and Reporting

Very informative and helpful. I hope you will continue reporting as lockdowns are lifted and America reopens. Minorities and the elderly will bare the brunt of the shortcuts being taken, and without accurate reporting they will be marginalized and forgotten.

Thank You NPR

Thank you NPR for getting up and running so fast. Although it felt like this podcast was up and running within days of sheltering-in-place orders, it was always the high caliber journalism so many depend on from NPR. I was only able to keep my calm by seeking out factual information about the coronavirus and how it is truly affecting the world AND my neighbors, while actively ignoring so much misinformation. Again thank you for making that an easy task for me (and certainly many others).

Repeats other NPR programs stories

I have always loved everything that Kelly mcEvers has done, but as someone who listens to a lot of Npr programs, I hear very Little new here. Much of the programs are just replays of other NPR programs. Considering what great reporting she does, I had hoped there would be more original reporting.
