Great small dose newscast

I rely on this podcast when time is short, to keep informed of goings-on. I had thought it was just for NYC news, but increasingly news from NY state is included, and even NJ. Wish it was truly just NYC and true local stories, like I read in the Brooklyn Paper, because hyper local news is “easy” to miss in a place this big.

I always learn something

And the hosts and presenters are excellent, across the board. A true NYC gem.

Amazing Local News Podcast

I love this podcast! It does a good job covering NYC news in a short time. It feels great to be informed about the city without having to read or listen to too many sources.

For me personally, when I got interested in local politics, I needed a source to stay up to date and I was amazed that such a high quality podcast exists for local news, which doesn’t get much public attention. I learn a lot and stay informed! Thanks to all the reporters and everyone else making this podcast happen!

Highly recommend to any and all New Yorkers for staying informed!

P.S. the ads are a bit annoying but you know they need to make money somehow, since the podcast is free so it’s not too bad.
