Morning ritual

The exact amount of time for a concise informative start to my day. I appreciate the choices in news and the just enough info to want me to look into further. Great voice as well!

Snappy

I can no longer start my day any other way. Really enjoy being armed with the news of the day—and getting it in such a tasty morsel. This guy’s voice is ineffably addictive.

Concise and to the point. Perfect to slip into your daily commute listening. The host is good: more conversational delivery, not grating news anchor voice. Appreciate the “why it matters” bits, which provide welcome context.
