    The Doorbell

    The Doorbell

    The American dream of a suburban house with a white picket fence cordons off the home as a haven, separate from the outside world. This personal, private utopia becomes defined by who gets let in. And that is determined by a device that isn’t often thought of as technology. But it's the first thing that you touch when you enter someone else’s home.

    Rapid at-home Covid-19 tests are hard to come by right now — and expensive. ProPublica’s Lydia DePillis explains what’s behind the shortages, what the U.S. can learn from Europe’s testing strategy, and what the federal government is doing to get more tests on shelves.

Great show - ? One piece

With the Internet episode where they talk about Chattanooga, I lived in Chattanooga, TN, and lived outside of the borders of the city but we were still able to get EPB (the Internet they discussed), is that right that it can’t expand? Because we were able to get it without issue in Soddy Daisy, TN?! But amazing work on the show, very good reporting!

Great

Great

Good format, poor execution!

The 10-15 min dive into current topics is great.
But please, please!! do something about Emily Stewart’s valley girl/drunken slur elocution. Idk, get her to work on it or don’t put her on air. It’s un-listenable, everyone complains about it. I’m not being dramatic but you’re losing us because of it.
Also 20% of the duration is ads… but that’s not nearly as annoying.
