Great Summary of Important Political Topics

I really miss Ken on "Talk of the Nation". Glad he is investing the time for this podcast!

Political Junkie with Ken Rudin MPR News

(Side note, not to be confused with “Ken Rudin’s Political Junkie.”). The rating reflects the podcast itself and not the content. The segments are still some of the most informative 15-minute round-ups of the political week. However, I am not clear what the point is of having a separate podcast when MPR fails to regularly update it and sometimes downloads Ms. Miller’s show in its entirety which defeats the purpose of having a separate podcast. It has been a month (November 11, 2018), since the last download. The point of subscribing to a podcast is to have the desired program available to easily listen to — not to have to go on a search every week. MPR needs to get it together or remove this as a separate podcast altogether. The fact that this podcast is clearly an after thought is a pity and makes MPR look rather amateurish.

Video killed the radio star

I am so confused as to why Kerri Miller would start her show talking about a button for several minutes but never describe it. Seems like a radio host, especially for MPR, should be able to use descriptive language to paint a picture for her listeners rather than talk about how funny it is and then refer us to her Twitter. Kind of hard to pull up Twitter while I’m driving to work, listening to the show
