Good, short news summaries

Great way to lear about a few specific news stories. They generally do a good job presenting both sides of an issue.

Subscribers have to listen to terrible repetitive commercials

Not sure if you pay for the WSJ why you would have to listen to commercials on a Podcast. Very annoying

Greninja6581 ,

Used to be better

Generally covers important US and world news.
Some days, both episodes are entirely dedicated to one single social issue and they don't report on any news. Hosts are good but most of the people they have come on to the show just point out the obvious.
Reporting is not as balanced as it used to be.
