Thought provoking

I don’t always agree with the host and guests, but they always leave me thinking about aspects of music culture from a perspective I had not yet considered. Yes, John C. can sound like he’s Trying To Be Cool when he forcefully inserts the latest youth slang into his dialog, but the guy at least has a well-considered take on most issues and provokes his guests into a natural debate. Would love to hear more critics from outside the NYC bubble, especially when discussing aspects of music culture from the south.

Shockingly one-sided

I’m surprised about how the one-sided opinions of the host (and I’m assuming producers) are blindly accepted as fact or truth without need for consideration. I love The Daily and wanted to see what other podcasts were put out by the NYT. The two podcasts are worlds apart with respect to standards of journalism. The topics are interesting, and I like to hear opinions that differ from my own (ie Air Pods, country rap), but the lack of acknowledgement of counter-opinions is frustrating and not respectable. I subscribe to the NYT to support The Daily. I hope that none of that money goes to this podcast.
