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!

Too many

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

Please make one daily episode

Love the local news content; hate the individual episodes. Often repetitive too. Sometimes I get multiple episodes with the exact same story. Please create one daily episode with all stories/reports included about 10-15 minutes max.
