I Listen Despite the Host
EDIT: The podcast is getting more sure-footed, but the host isn’t particularly precise or accurate in his wording. I’d have more confidence in the show if a more seasoned journalist were at the helm.
A behind-the-news podcast for WW is very exciting, but the podcast has some drawbacks that make it a hard listen. I get the sense that the host is a driving force behind the show itself (which is great), but I crave more gravitas and a clearer sense of the bigger picture. The tenor of the show doesn’t inspire a ton of confidence in the rigor of the publication as a whole. The guests and reporters are always well chosen and interesting.
Interesting interviews, broad topics.
Not the podcast i wanted.
