Long time listener, great variety and timeliness

I’ve been listening for a couple of years now. The short summaries of weekly finds gives me just enough context to inform me whether I would want to deep dive and find out more.

I have a growing collection of to-read-later thanks to this. The soundbites and humor keep the listening fun too.

The above comments are about the short length weekly news podcast, but the other podcasts in the stable have similar high production and entertainment value as well and are worth checking out
