Harsh But Fair ,

Needs lots of work

Repeats far too many stories. This is not the radio; we subscribe and listen to every episode. Weather is a waste of time, too, since it tries to cover the entire state, making it generic to the point of useless. Sports are also not useful news; leave that kind of garbage to the people who also “report” lottery numbers and horoscopes.

Update: Now they’re including episodes of another podcast in this feed, meaning you either are getting even *more* repeats if you like that podcast, too, or unwanted stories here if you don’t. MPR needs to hire someone who understands what podcasts are, and I’m very close to unsubscribing completely.

Mn today

I love these, but in the last couple weeks, I frequently am not noble to download them. They say episode unavailable eg I can’t listen to today or my yesterday’s afternoon episode. I am able to download npr podcast, so seems to be a mn today issue.
