EXCELLENT

[Updated:
Megna, 5 stars.
David, 3 stars especially after listening to Alan Furst interview, but just in general. Choppy voice difficult to listen to—always bothers me. (There is voice training, did you know?) But I think it’s more to do with preparation, and questions selected. And basically ignoring the essence of what callers questions are to fulfill his own interests.]

Inspired to post a review after listening to the Jan. 15,2019 episode of a conversation with the author of “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism” (Shoshana Zuboff), and host Meghna Chakrabarti.

I could have listened for hours more — please Meghna, have Professor Zuboff back so the two of you can talk again.

Perhaps a series with her about this topic?... would be fantastic; even patriotic...

I’ve increasingly been appreciating your hosting in general Meghna—thanks!

Catalogue too small

I’ll let the Tom Ashbrook question finally drop; we’re obviously not going back.

Why in the world is there anyway only a week’s worth of shows available to download? 1A keeps months up; Left Roght & Center; all the other shows do. The website archives are very difficult to navigate, and don’t allow real downloads. You just have to stream off a dedicated web page.

I want to keep listening, but everything about the changes in the new-look, new-era WBUR makes it impossible.

And now you’ve skipped Week In The News on the biggest News week of the year perhaps. There were plenty of weeks with Tom when something was happening on NPR Special Coverage on Friday at 10. He put a show in the can because he knew people look to it on the podcast, and stations run it at different times. And now podcasts are really your whole medium!

Well, I guess not, since you don’t keep your content available in the major apps past a week like literally every other NPR show and podcast hobbyist out there.

Really unimpressed with this
station’s performance in the years since Tom was fired - entirely apart from the loss of his talent.
