Omg can this be any slower or more ad filled??

Today - end of May 2020 - the host, after a full minute of commercials, takes another full minute to play their theme music. This after hearing that ppl listen to the show at 1 1/2 speed! TAKE THE HINT, producers and host! I’ve been listening to this podcast from its inception, but no thanks, guys. Do not tell me how to listen to my news. YOUR life might be slow right now, but mine is not. And nobody wants to listen to that theme music more than absolutely necessary. Come on.

Perfectly sized

This is the only podcast that I listen to regularly. It’s perfectly sized, paced, and well produced for a daily podcast. All that coupled with Sean’s upbeat and playful tone makes for great listening.

Professional and informational

I rely on this daily news podcast for the last couple of years. It's delivered in a highly compressed no-nonsense way on pressing daily issues. Love the guests, the host way of interacting with them, and the music! Highly recommmmmend.
