Needs 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.

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.
