Missing Ramshaw

The new host isn’t doing great, skipped over most of the new episodes since Emily left. Tough time to not be able to listen to this. #markasplayed

New format is lame

Ditching the humor and banter was a bad idea

Please work on sound quality

I love the topics of the episodes and the knowledge base it f the reporters. Politically they keep it very factual and don’t lean to far in any one direction, which I highly value and appreciate. My one quibble is that some of the reporters tend to speak very softly or turn away from the microphone while talking making it difficult to hear what the are saying.
