Great northwest news in accessible format!

Short news and Northwest-centered pieces, from Seattle’s KUOW radio. Episodes are published Monday through Friday.

I often listen to podcast episodes that are half an hour to an hour or more. I love the fact that I can plan to listen to a stream of audio material of varying lengths. I arrange 2 or 3 short blurbs, like KUOW, then a ten minute podcast, then a longer show. The shorter episodes break up my listening into comfortable rhythms.

I personally would like you to add weekend reports, but I love your podcast as it is. Thank you!

Good but….

Every time my phone looses connectivity I have to re open this app and listen to the same stupid 30 second ad again. I might be in a blind spot for just 5 seconds as I walk. So frustrating & irritating. Could you just make it ad free with listener support ?

Too many

I like the content a lot, but too many on-minute episodes a day isn’t a good format for me.
